The program had a booklist
This really is a post for me to look at now and again when I need reference or reminding on good ideas as these things come up.
The main feeling I have is that I need to be positive about sex. Not hide if from my kids. Help them feel empowered by their beautiful bodies and feelings. I love my kids, and I am going to do my best. 🙂
After all that heavy talking. We needed a treat for being such great moms.
So we went to Roll with It.
The anti griddle ice cream place.
Last time we went here with the kids, I didn’t even get 5 bites of my ice cream.
Some explanation, with out mush attention.
And got it!
And put on their watch dog shirts.
After a day of volunteering, Karl and Mirah coming out of school together.
Karl helped in Mirah’s class, and helped with pick up and drop off, he helped monitor at recess. He met Mirah’s teacher, and class mates. He had a great time.
BUT SO CUTE!
Lucas was just excited to be on a slide!
And he was off again.
I tried to show Devo that we were having a blast. I sent her lots of pics while we were together.
She is such a good mom, she always had so many snacks for her kids. I figured we had just had breakfast when we left to meet them, so I didn’t bring any. Lucas wanted Dane to share his snacks.
Dane wasn’t super into it at first.
BUT- he had a change of heart after Lucas begged and begged.
Luke thought that his he sideled right next to Dane, maybe he would be more willing to share his sweet potato chips.
He wasn’t convinced. And ended up dumping the rest of them on the ground to avoid sharing. Oh my goodness I was cracking up!
Luckily with 2 year olds, “out of sight out of mind” was pretty much a rule and they went on playing after this.
But with all the snacks gone, poor Dane felt desperate for his missing mother.
Lucas stayed close by being a real bro.
You can tell he, Lucas, didn’t really get what was going on, but he wanted to be near his new buddy in his time of stress.
We got into the car, which helped calm him down, because I think it made him think we were leaving to go to his mom.
She did arrive, and he was RELIEVED.
All and all a pretty fun play date.
We got her all dressed up in her uniform, and I think that I was more excited than Mirah. You can see it on my face, also by the number of pictures that will be in this post. Everything was perfect.
Well, everything except the air quality. The inversion was TERRIBLE that day. The worst I have seen in memory.
Karl had scouts that night, so he wasn’t there to help me get the kids, the chairs, and all of our stuff to the field. BUT we made it!
Lucas was excited to be on the field and have his snack.
Mirah’s coach and teammates.
MIRAH is number 9 BTW.
Here with a team mate, checking out the goal.
We got so excited to get to the game, we hadn’t had dinner. So we loaded up on snacks while we waited for it to start.
And the game began! Lucas and I sitting together, cheering Mirah on.
Soon enough, Karl arrived.
Mirah was all over the feild! She ran and fell, and kicked and jumped!
Here she is with her coach!!
She was having a blast.
It was during this game the girls gave themselves a name!
A name as fierce as they are!
The Purple Sharks!
Their fierce competition, the Blue Team.
But everyone was having fun! GO Mirah!
No one makes him laugh like his dad.
One more round of goals!
And it was time for the game to be over!
And we won! Well, everyone won, because everyone is a winner when they play fair and have fun!
Mirah’s first good game line. It was hilarious, because none of them had done it before and they we just milling around with Adults trying to get them to high five each other.
No one told Lucas players only.
The next day we had Practice.
It was a serious evening of drills.
Coach Thomas was having a tough time motivating them.
They were still pretty tuckered out from the game.
They said young children are welcome, so I brought Lucas.
There were games and toys and, books (of course since it was held in the school’s library)
Lucas spent most of the time playing this little fishing game.
They talked about the Chior, and about their chosen math program, and about the Cougar Crawl coming up.
