The little goal-scorer had her last game and party today, too. Here are some pictures of her (and a couple of her friend Izzy):

A few beautiful clouds rolled in, and it stayed incredible all day. Here are some shots of Jacob’s game:

Lauren's Last Soccer Game of Spring

Saturday, May 17th, 2008

Today could not have been more beautiful, so it’s great that everyone has their last game and party today. Here are a few shots from Lauren’s — She was the first to go. Her coach told her she got the award for having the “best smile” (and the best shoes, which made all the kids laugh).

Training Wheels Are Off

Sunday, May 11th, 2008

The kids were riding their bikes tonight, and Beth just decided she wanted to have her training wheels off. She did great, having only a few difficulties, but not being scared at all. She can zoom as well as Lauren and Jake already. [No more training wheels for anyone!]

School Programs at the End of the Year

Saturday, May 10th, 2008

Jake and Beth each had programs in their class. I had to work, but Jen took some pictures. Beth (and 1 other kid her class) got to read a book to everyone. Jake had a good time at his, too:

Another Great Soccer Day

Saturday, May 3rd, 2008

This spring has been the Tale of Two Seasons when it comes to soccer. The first several games were either snowed or rained out, and now we’ve had some of the nicest weather ever for a couple weeks. Here are some pictures of everyone playing today. Lauren and I also got to walk from the Y fields to her field at Crockett (but it took a little longer than we expected and she was just a touch late).
