Our Life in Pictures
Dad just discovered this post that never made it. Better late than never…
More of our summer: road trip to DC (with a stop at Lady Liberty), cousins, the World Cup, a minor league baseball game and other fun stuff.
Happy belated Halloween from this motley crew
If you’re wondering why Anna has 2 different costumes, she was a Greek Goddess (Athena?) for school and then a zombie for trick-or-treating.TAGS: Holidays
First Germany wins the World Cup and now we’re bringing German pretzels to my school’s International Night. If only Anna would stop thinking we’re Greek!
Mom’s golden child turned 2 a few weeks back. We had a birthday party with his friends and Cousin Michael came over for ice cream cake. Happy B-Day O!
It was a typical busy weekend filled with a soap box derby, a street hockey game, pumpkin carving, buying apples from a farm stand to make apple crisp and, of course, lots of card games
Come visit us again soon, Paw Paw!
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.
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 itOwen the gymnast
