Falyn’s kindergarten class had a “meet and greet” at the park today. The parents were all able to meet each other while the class aides kept the kids busy. It was fun meeting all the new parents. Looks like it is a great group of families!
The soccer season kicked into high gear today with the first game day. Kayli, Aidan, Jared, Riley and Falyn are all playing soccer this year. It makes for quite the juggling act getting them all to the right fields at the right time. I wasn’t able to make it to Aidan’s game because the time of his game conflicted with Falyn’s game. Since I am the coach, I have to be at Falyn’s game. The teams all did great and all the kids had a great time! Falyn was so tired after going to two games and playing in one that she fell asleep on the way home.
I am coaching Falyn’s soccer team again this year. The girls picked “Pink Ninjas” for the team name. Falyn was so happy her team’s color is pink this year. I had the girls wear “crazy socks” and took some pics at today’s practice. Here’s a few of my faves.
Yes I know, I haven’t updated my blog all summer. We were super busy had a wonderful summer. Now that the kids are back in school, I will be back filling it with all the fun stuff we did as I get time.
Kayli turned fourteen today. We celebrated with cake and presents after dinner.
I can not believe that Talia is now a Junior. Only one more year left till she graduates and heads off to college. She is taking two AP classes, two honors classes and french 3 this year. It will be a challenge, but I know she will do great.
For everyone but Talia, today was the first day of school. Falyn was so excited to be going to kindergarten. She had a great time and just loves her new teacher. Jared and Riley are in 3rd grade and have the same teacher they had in kindergarten. They both think this will be a great year. Aidan started 5th grade and has a teacher Kayli had for both 4th and 5th grade. She is just wonderful and I know Aidan will do great with her as his teacher this year. Kayli is in 8th grade, which is will be the last year for her at this school. She is excited about all the fun things she gets do do this year as an 8th grader, especially the 8th grade sweatshirts and DC trip.
All ready for her first day of Kindergarten.
I am going to try to remember to do a shot like this each year for Falyn.
