Field Day

The girls had their Field Day at school, and it was a beautiful day. I volunteered during the younger grades, and was assigned the ring toss station (new station from last year).

Jen and I swapped out at lunch time, and Jen worked the bean bag tic-tac-toe for the older kids.

And the face painters this year really did a fantastic job, as you can tell from these happy girls.

The girls and I again had fun at the Legos with Dad event at their school, as we have the past couple of years.

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day was a busy one. It started with going to the 9:30 service at church where the girls choirs were singing.

Leah sang with the Cherub Choir for the last time on Mother's Day. When choirs resume in the fall, she'll be moving up to join Molly and the other big kids. Apologies for losing her in the shot for much of the video. It’s tough to get a good angle on these.

Next up was Molly’s choir.

Then I led kid’s worship at 11:00 before heading to East Moon Asian Bistro for a fancy sushi lunch (the girls had Salmon Teriyaki) with the four of us and Grams.

Eventually, we made it home so Jen could open her presents.

High socks

Leah continues to be a serious tennis player. And now that it’s warm, she can dress the part as well. Leah got a couple pair of high socks at Easter, and now she wants to wear them whenever she plays tennis, just like Bethany Mattek-Sands.

I posted that picture to Twitter back when I took it and was surprised to get a response for Leah from Bethany herself!

Here are a few action shots of Leah at her lesson.

Staff Appreciation Week

For Staff Appreciation Week (way back in April) at the girls’ school, families were asked to “adopt” a staff member. The girls chose one of the GT teachers and worked together with Jen to make a poster for the classroom door.

Leah’s first solo in big church

Back in March, Leah sang her first solo in big church and did a great job. Here she is with the praise band, leading the congregation in a new song. I thought I had posted this back then, but I apparently just put it on Twitter.

Finally snow

We thought we wouldn’t get any real snow this year, but we finally got a small snow storm. It was a very icy, but the girls said that meant the sledding was faster and more fun. Here is Molly headed down.

Leah wanted me to take a video of her, and she kindly showed off a bit.

The girls still love penguin sliding in the tracks created by their sleds. The icy snow meant they could slide even faster.

The girls made a cute little snowman by the front door.

Leah and Molly both sang with their choirs again in March. This time, Leah got the earlier service while Molly was in the later one.



Ready to celebrate Dr. Seuss

Ready to celebrate Dr. Seuss! Jen made the girls Dr. Seuss themed shirts for Dr. Seuss spirit week. The decals are just vinyl stickers so she could put something more permanent on the shirts later - unicorns.

No way

Both the girls’ choirs sang on the same day in February (Molly at the 9:30 service, Leah at the 11:00 service).
