There were three September birthdays celebrated at Thais and Lenin’s tonight, me, Justin and Jennifer.
Thursday: Sophia played volleyball at St Ignatius.
Friday: Carson played his first-ever soccer game and made 4 goals!
Saturday afternoon: Avery’s soccer game.
Hurray. This morning, Thais went trail running and Lenin went to play golf.
#8 taking the ball down the field:
Carson scored 3 of the 4 goals for his team. A very nice start to the season!
it’s the first day of school. Grades 7-Sophia, 5-Avery, kindergarten-Carson:
I asked Carson if he’d noticed any changes since he’d turn 5, about 18 hours ago. He’s thinks he talks differently now.
Thais had an errand to run and … maybe need a break?
We walked to Swainson’s Hawk Park
which has a really cool zip line
and a fun merry-go-round.
Justin came to Thais & Lenin’s for a quick food exchange.
Someone liked the homemade whipped cream way more than the pie that went underneath it:
We played Ravine, a game of survival. Carson was the card shuffler and distributor of cards. Below, I think I had drawn a madness card which required me to throw my cards in the air and shriek. OMG, Grandma had gone crazy, at least until someone figured out how to make me stop. Believe me, everyone was interested in a quick solution.
Meanwhile in other parts of the country, people got together by texting message and pictures. Dave and Phyl in Montana:
