Our Life in Pictures
It was a crazy sports weekend…5 hockey games, soccer practice, swim practice, a basketball game and a district swim meet. It all came to a screeching halt Sunday evening afternoon and just like that, the basketball, hockey and swim seasons are over. Anna went home with a 3rd in the back, 5th in the fly and 1st in the relay in her district (~15 teams) swim meet. Will’s team got 2nd in their hockey tournament. Interestingly enough, NONE of these events were in Medfield. But we did get to visit quite a few lovely towns in Eastern Mass – Charlestown, Norfolk, Wellesley, Bellingham, Milford, Malden.
Lacrosse, baseball and soccer start up in a few weeks…just about time to be outside.
Uncle Stephen and Auntie Donna opened their pool today.
It was only 62 degrees but guess who was the first one in?Will takes a dip in the pool
A week after our trip to DC< we went camping in New Hampshire. Mom, Auntie Donna and the little kids spent 1 night in the cabins while the rest of us “roughed it” by spending 3 nights at Pawtuckaway. We went for a hike, ate smores and popcorn cooked over a campfire and even went swimming in a lake with warning signs posted because of high bacteria levels.
After doing it f2 years in a row, we can’t wait to go back next year
2 weeks go, Anna swam in the Boston city championship swim meet.
First in the 25 butterfly and 50 freestyle and 2 relay firsts.
Here are a few videos from the meet:Anna wins the 25 butterfly (lane 2)Anna wins the 50 free (lane 5)
Will’s summer vacation started 2 weeks ago and he’s packed in quite a lot so far.
He graduated from pre-school and celebrated at PF Chang’s (no pictures), went to a Revs game with Dad & Anna, napped, discovered a new sport (lacrosse), went swimming…
Survival was the #1 priority for everyone over the weekend. Mom took part in her first (of many?) triathlons. And, dad stayed home with the kids. ALONE…FOR THE WEEKEND!
Mom split the tri with Auntie Donna, with mom doing the swim and half of the bike. She remembered everything both her swimming coach and daughter taught her, dusted the 8-yr old cobwebs off the bike and got it done.
They then celebrated with the other participants (Auntie Chrissy, Cousin Michael, Uncle Scott, Patrick) at the beachcomber with a few mudslides and a beautiful beach day.
Anna was a little disappointed Mom didn’t win and bring us home the $500 prize but we’re all proud of her. Way to go MOMMY!
As for dad, he dressed us all up in our soccer gear for the Gorilla’s final game of the Spring and then we did other weekend stuff – went to BJ’s, Whole Foods, B-day party, play-date, watched a movie, played street hockey, ate pizza, etc.
It was a big weekend for me as well. I’m done at the Kids’ Stop. Next year, I will be going to pre-school at the Small Fry. And, I’m now riding around in a booster seat. No more baby seat for me.
I’m a lot happier about it than my picture would lead you to believe.
Last Saturday, I swam 70 lengths of the 20yard pool for the Gators’ fundraiser – all without getting out. That’s almost a mile! Dad thinks I could have gone longer but my friends and I got bored and we wanted to go hang out in the locker room.
On Sunday we got a well-deserved spa day.
I invited 5 swim friends over for manicures, pedicures and facials!! It was a giggle fest!!TAGS: swimming
