Day 120

We made it home from our first day of swim team, with most of the team there for their age groups.  It was busy, but Cody made quite a few laps.  Tyler didn't get much swim time today, but they are working on leveling the age groups, so hopefully this will get better.

Soccer Carnage 
The boys and I spent from 7am-12:30 today on the soccer field as part of my coaches training.  They were our helpers today and really had a good time learning some new skills.  
I'm now an official "F" licensed coach, with a whole new perspective on how things will run in the fall.

Day 110

Swimmer boys...
We've made it through our first week of swim!  I'm excited for clinic to be over so that Cody can move over to more of his age group and be pushed a bit harder.  Ty is coming along and getting better at not grabbing the lines 20 times on the way down, more like 4 or 5 times towards the end.

It's just me, Iron Man 2 and the Sunday paper today.

I did go watch the boy swim for a bit, but other than that it's been a much needed relaxing day.

Day 101

What the hail?!?!?
On our way home from shopping it started pouring down rain, then as soon as we pulled into the garage the hail started.  Cody and I stood just inside the garage watching it come down, then watching the lightning and waiting on the thunder.  Quite the spring storm we had!

Day 99

Little Skater Boy
Cody's really starting to get the hang of his RipStik, he can go quite a bit before stopping.  His next task is to learn how to start without holding on to something.

Day 98

Happy Easter!
Cody made it a point after breakfast to bring Keith and I the special eggs he dyed for us yesterday.

Day 97

Dying Eggs...
Yep, there they are.  Only one egg hit the floor, I'm impressed.

Day 96

Permanent fixtures for the next 6-8 months...
These, amongst others (like the missing, beloved, face stick) will be sitting on the counter until probably October or so.  The boys hit the pool (twice!) with Grandma today in hopes of having Tyler remember he can swim before swim team starts in a couple of weeks.  So far things are going okay, Cody on the other hand swam 22 laps in his evening session! 

Day 95

Workin' at the Car Wash...

They put in a new Quick Quack Car Wash in our area and we drove by it yesterday.  The boys decided that if I wasn't going to stop and get the Tahoe washed they needed to do it themselves.  So I pulled down the car soap, mits and buckets, turned on the hose and let them go at it.  We decided the Van could use a scrub as well.  They had fun, even if the cars didn't turn out all that clean!

Day 94

We celebrated 3 friends turning 8 today at the park.  Cody's buddies from preschool, along with some of my best friends, it was a great time. 

(Oh, and yes this is the "best" of the three crappy pictures I took today)

Tree Trimmin'
The neighbors behind us had a tree that was dying and with a lot of branches that hung over on our side, today they had it cut way back and we spent a lot of time watching them.

Cody is getting better at balancing on his new RipStik, can't wait to see him cruising down the sidewalk on this thing!
