29August2016 ~ waiting for the bus
L was excited for the first day of school on the first day of school.She wasn't so excited before that day. I thought having a play date with her closest friends before school started would get her excited..."nope." When asked if the girls were excited about school it was a yes from everyone, but L.
Back to the first day of school...a little sister did was not ready for L to leave her. Lexiloo was trying to be as close to her sister as possible.
Lexiloo started in the Pre-K room one week after L went off to 3rd grade.
I'm happy to report...L loves school so far. She talks about school and is doing her homework without us asking her. She also wants to read..anything to not go to sleep, but I'll take as a win.
Our life is consumed by soccer...all year round. L has come to love soccer and it's something she and Dave share that is special to them. There's the town team, winter team, the league and clinics that L is involved in. Right now there's two nights with practices, a game on Saturday and two games every other Sunday. Some weeks there are three practices, with one of them back to back.
February ~ GPS winter games
All of L's hard work is showing. She has become aggressive and goes after the ball whether in offense or defense. She loves to score to the point where it may be considered being a poor sport. I'm working on this. Dave does not discipline much, so it's up to me to do it. L doesn't like it when it's me who brings her to soccer. I've told her if she kept up her attitude it will be me taking her to all her practices and game. This may be more of a punishment for me.
This is what Dave and L will practice on for hours in the yard.…
On Sunday, we spent the day in Boston. We did a lot in the day so there's two parts to Boston Day. L was excited when I told her we were going to the Children's Museum where she could play with all their toys. All their toys got her...
The Museum is right on the waterfront. The setting was beautiful. L loved seeing the ducks and wanted to catch one. We joke she's like a dog. She's always chasing after the animals she sees especially birds and squirrels.
A content Logan slept through most of the day. As soon as you walk into the Museum, you'll see a climbing maze. Between the first two stops...the maze and the bubbles room...we didn't think we would make it to the other exhibits. Bubbles, one of L's favorite. Here favorite in the room was trying to create a bubble around her whole body. Here's a picture list of all that we saw.
In the common area there were butterflies and marbles that attached to your body.
