End of August

The last week of August has brought a lot of activity to our house, back to school, baseball game, cereal and a little girl who likes to scoot backwards!

First day of school – Montessori morning preschool 3-6 class
Trying rice cereal for the first time – loved it!
Hanging out in my swing, just being cute!
I-Cubs game for Dad’s work
Beautiful night at the ballpark
Check it out – 2011 4-A baseball state champs!
7th inning sleep

Lots of stuff…

Miss G

Where did she get those long, skinny toes?

Alex finished his flag football at the Y – here he is getting his participation medal. He had a good time and can’t wait to do it again in the fall.

We finished up swim lessons at the Y this week. Alex did very well and we are already signed up to take some private lessons this summer to start working on our strokes.

Last Friday, we had a field trip to the nature center at Raccoon River Park. We got to pet Mr. Butters the rabbit, Becky the Box Turtle (who is apparently about the same age as me), and plant a sunflower seed. The weather cooperated and the kids got to play at the park afterwards. Tomorrow is the last day of school for the year, and it’s hard to believe it wraps up two years of Montessori for Alex. He will have one more year in the same classroom and then it is off to…get ready…kindergarten!
