Our Life in Pictures

    Owen continues to entertain us on the video monitor as he resists sleep. (Though we are sad when he pleads "mommy mommmmmy" thru the crack under his door).

    As part of a Patriots summer reading challenge, some Patriots personnel visited Anna’s school to congratulate them for meeting their #-of-books-read goal, and Jarvis Green (former defensive end) awarded Anna the special prize of an autographed football and team photos for reading the most books of any 3rd grader at her school over the summer. She thinks it was 50-something books but turned her list in last month so not sure. [meanwhile, mom continues to read pages 42 and 43 of her current novel each night before falling asleep]

    Will is still adjusting to the school uniform requirements. He continues to prefer sports clothes. Still, there is pop in his collar.

    Only 33% of us Koch kids have started using the potty with vigor and enthusiasm before age 2.
    Guess who?

    Lastly, it’s been a very windy and rainy 48 hours. A BIG tree limb fell on our roof right above the big kids’ beds. This was kinda scary! Turns out it made a hole in the roof and water has entered… Mom & Dad do not seem pleased, but we are excited for the tree guys to come tomorrow with their bucket, and then eventually the roofer, drywall guy, etc etc..trucks trucks trucks!

    And, the video of Owen practicing gymnastics really gets good around 50 seconds into it

    What’s the almost 2yr old up to?
    Among other things, being cute, making a mess and climbing out of his crib to sleep on the floor.

    Spending Labor Day weekend on Cape Cod is a McDonald tradition. So is having a bad back and lingering knee trouble. What better way to annually celebrate a deteriorating body than to have a softball game!!! The game this year was the 5th annual. On my count of those playing, there were 4 bad backs, 6 bum knees and a bad shoulder or 2. That’s current, not past ailments! (Dad’s note: I have neither a bad back nor a messed up knee and I hit the first home run in McDonald Labor Day softball game history. Lefty. And I’m right-handed. Over the fence.)

    The rest of the weekend was spent on the beach (with the Gormley Cup!), at an arcade, eating ice cream and a bunch of other stuff we don’t get to do once school starts.

    My little brother Will turned 5 today and it was filled with a lot of his favorite things – and some new ones. Coffee cake for breakfast then off to his 3rd day of K1. Once school was over, he headed off to lacrosse practice then Chipotle for dinner (no more tacos but instead he ordered an ADULT SIZED BURRITO!) and last it was presents, a homemade cake by mom and facetime with aunts, ants and uncles.
