The activities have begun: dance for Pippi (and homework...), soccer for Bardo, laundry for me, and football season (spectating) for the Warlock.
Church callings, school activities, time with friends, carpooling, etc fill our days.
I started training for a half-marathon a couple of weeks ago. I ran the ugliest five miles of my life today, pushing a Maclaren, stopping at intervals to allow Boo to run her wiggles out. And yes, the dog was with me, too. When will I ever learn that I don't always have to be multitasking?
Here are some pictures of Bardo at soccer. As I watched him, I noticed how he puts his whole body into his movements.
Boo hates getting her picture taken. But I sneak a few photographs anyway. She swore off underwear yesterday after 2 weeks of steady progress with the potty training. She can even sing a stirring rendition of the "I'm Proud to Wear My Underwear..." from the the Potty Power video we're borrowing from Netflix. I think her sudden step back may have to do with her recent refusal to nap.
Boo talks about Rapunzel often. She doesn't like the wig aspect of her costume, and I personally cannot coax her to wear it. However, Bardo talked her into one day.
