Youth Rugby

Today we had a free trial class to non-contact youth rugby. Evan loved it and we'll be signing him up for the 4 week session coming up in October. Ellena was a little overwhelmed by the big kids and the ball. Look at her face above! There were some tears, but we encouraged her to keep trying.

In the end, she had some one-on-one time with one of the coaches and she really picked up on the quick passes, catching and kicking. Depending on how the 4-5 year old class will be run, will determine if we sign her up...

It's Official...

... This girl can make anything cute! Here she is wearing her new dragon hoodie. I love her unique taste in clothes! She can be wearing her baggy "boy" tshirts and basketball shorts with girly orange strappy sandals. Too funny!

Today we were reading a book that said, "They can all share the food. What would you bring to a picnic?" Ellena replied, "Burps!" Disgusting little girl!

Ellena's Buddies

Here is a picture of Ellena with her two best friends - Kushagra and Adhvay. They were in the same class last year. Adhvay has moved on to Kindergarten and she was so disappointed that she doesn't get to see him at school any more. She does see Kushagra and she enjoys playing with him at recess!

Evan's Picture Day

Evan took school pictures yesterday. He wore a nice collared shirt and gelled his hair - very stylin'! Before leaving for school, I snapped a few of my own pictures - he was in quite the posing mood. Think the last picture will be closest to what we get from the school.

Back to School!

The kids went back to school last week - Evan to 1st grade and Ellena to start her last year of Montessori. They were excited to see their friends and teachers and we look forward to a great year!

I was looking forward to some alone time, myself, since we had quite the summer of togetherness (Ellena had no interest in going to any summer camps or activities.) But I got knocked down with a horrible flu bug and spent the entire week resting and trying to get better. Well, today starts a new week and I'll be going to a gym class! Hooray for fresh starts!
