Our Life in Pictures
Will, with help from his parents, has to decide between taking Spanish or Mandarin in 2nd grade.
Will: Mom, I think i’m going to take spanish next year
Mom: How did you decide that?
Will: We had second and third graders come talk to us about mandarin and spanish and the spanish teacher said you can speak spanish in 21 countries and some are in europe like Spain and that’s who won the 2010 world cup.
Cant wait to hear Anna’s reasoning for picking Spanish, French or Mandarin.TAGS: soccer
The girls headed to NYC for the weekend so it’s a boys weekend back in Medfield. We’ll have a full recap once it is over but the highlight of Friday night was Will scoring 2 goals in futsal (and also not letting in during his stint in goal) so we celebrated by breaking out the alphorn!
Learning from his big sister, Will is getting in the (good) habit of reading a book on the way to his soccer game…and the (bad) habit of then bringing the book to the field to read when he’s not in the game.
After Anna’s team lost their soccer game 1-0 where Dad was the ref because the real ref didn’t show up and Dad didn’t give Anna’s team a goal when it went in (even the other team’s goalie even said it was a goal), Dad tried to apologize by taking us to Chipotle. That and it was Thursday so we had to go. Nothing new for me (Owen) and Anna – Anna is still eating a kids taco kit w/ extra rice and I still love my kids quesadilla meal. Will, on the other hand, is now ordering an adult sized burrito (carnitas, rice, black beans, salsa, sour cream and cheese) and is now at the point to where he’s eating the whole thing…
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
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.
After Will finished up his soccer season with a goal in the last game, we decided that the best way to spend the first day of summer break was to go ice skating – and then ice cream, of course.
Another busy weekend consisting of 3 soccer games (Anna and Will both scored goals in theirs and Dad’s team won 4-1) and a street hockey game (Will’s team won the championship). But the most amazing athletic accomplishment was Anna running (yes running!) the Corrib 5k with her soccer team. She finished in the lead pack at around 30 minutes. Meanwhile, the boys were off riding horses with Mom while waiting for Anna and Dad to get back.
