Dirty Girl Mud Run

Mommy ran the Dirty Girl Mud Run in Illinois yesterday to support Ms. Kim. We tagged along as spectators and official high-fivers. Lily was named a dirty girl in training as she was dying to get out there and get dirty with the others. I would say it was a successful day of getting down and dirty for a good cause!

Chinooks Game

Tonight was TMYBA night at the Chinooks game. Like last year we got to go out on the field for the National Anthem, and we were to run the bases after the game, but mother nature had other plans I guess. If you notice in the picture we are wearing warm sweatshirts and it is the end of June. Unfortunately the layers and hot chocolate were not enough to keep us warm and we only made it through 5 1/2 innings. We left shivering and numb, but had fun despite the frigid temps and brisk winds.

It's A Beautiful Day in This Neighborhood

One of the number one reasons why we love living in our neighborhood...friends right next door! Would you be our...could you be our...won't you be our neighbor?

Little Mermaids

We stopped by my dance studio today to register for the Fall, and my pictures from this year's recital just happened to be ready. The little mermaids are looking pretty good here in our world!

Batter Up

video
With only two more weeks to go, all I have left to achieve is a home run. I've managed to hit quite a few singles this year as well as one double and a triple. Lily managed to catch me on video today if you'd care to take a peek. I think maybe the ORANGE jersey had something to do with all of my hits this year?!?!

Two Perfect Matches

This year was the first year Lily and I have been separated at school since 3K, and I'm pretty sure Donges Bay thought long and hard about where they were going to place us because they picked the perfect first grade teacher for each of us. 

Mrs. Amling was the nicest teacher and she always gave the class hot chocolate whenever it snowed. As I hugged her goodbye today she teared up and thanked me for being her go-to man, and she begged me to not move. She then gave Mom the biggest hug and thanked her for bringing me into her life. She made me promise to visit her next year, which I know we will. 

Then there was Lily and Ms. Bongard. Lily loved sharing her stories with her, and telling her all about our adventures. Lily even searched the Humane Society website almost daily to find her the perfect pooch, which Ms. Bongard will hopefully purchase this summer. Lily honestly cannot say one negative thing about her, even though all of her talking sometimes got her in trouble.  

Both of our teachers were great about including our lives into our daily classroom activities. Daddy would send us pictures from his adventures, and both teachers would put them up on the smart board and make it into a geography or history lesson. Our favorite was when he visited Martin Luther King Jr.'s house and we both got to present for our respective classes. Like I said after the first day back in September, first grade was awesome, and Lily would like to add that it was her best year ever!

See You Later First Grade

 What we once knew as first grade is over as of 12:35pm today and we will officially be second graders! Lily is frightened of moving on because it means we have to grow up, while I on the other hand am eager to get going as it means I am one year closer to graduation and the real world. So I guess this is goodbye, see you later alligator, after while crocodile, swish swish jelly fish...however you put it we had a good run, but it is true that all good things must come to an end!
