Our Life in Pictures
Being a contrarian is hard work so sometimes you gotta recharge the batteries by taking a nap on the couch…
Uncle Mitch and Dylan (our cousin) came along for the annual cutting down of the Koch Family Christmas Tree at Smolak Farms – just over an hour away from our house. It was one for the ages, in more ways than one as you can see by the pictures and video below. Don’t worry, no one was permanently harmed in the video.The unveiling of the Koch Family TreeLink to YouTube video: https://youtu.be/XxH-8fRfjqw
Not much time to rest now that the fall activities have ended as all of the fun and games from the fall are moving indoors.
Hockey for Will has been underway for about 2 months now (apparently it’s not just a winter sport) but they’ve just started finally playing games. 2 games in and Will has a handful of goals and a game shirt with his name on the back of it.
Mom’s doing her best to keep Owen away from the cold rink but we’re afraid it’s inevitable.
As for Anna, when she’s not swimming, she’s playing indoor soccer and got her first taste of it on Friday. She started off the game in goal – something she DOES NOT LIKE – and proceeded to have her hands hidden in the jacket in protest
As if soccer, hockey, daylight savings and halloween parties parades and trick or treating weren’t enough to cause havoc, we also closed on our home and moved in last weekend!! We are living amongst boxes and piles, but we are settling in – and the big kids are happy to be taking the bus to school (first time ever!)..
Then, 2 days later, he started pre-school. Mom’s golden child is growing up too fast.
And, congratulations to Uncle Mitch who ran the Marine Corps Marathon in between Owen’s 2 big days. Way to go Uncle Mitch!
A busy weekend of soccer, hockey and hanging out with cousins ended at Orange Leaf for some FroYo. 7 goals in 3 games between me and Will and as always, Owen is the one that’s most excited.
Will celebrated his 6th birthday earlier this month. As Will dislikes being the center of attention, it was a pretty low-key birthday, quietly celebrating with his cousins. A few days later we all went to Lego Land and a few days later to the driving range to test out his new golf clubs
