New things getting started for each of the kids this week. Graham's first Little League practice was Tuesday - they'll be practicing twice a week until games start.
His friend Andrew is on the team, and he knows most of the other boys too. The coaches seem so nice and very organized so it's already an improvement over last year's Kidsports experience.
I know this is something Graham really enjoys, so I'm looking forward to seeing the progress he makes this season.
Ellie's Girl Scout troop started meeting this week too. First a quick shot of Ellie on the playground during G's baseball practice before her meeting...
Ellie had a blast at Scouts - there was singing, crafts, and dancing - what's not to love?! She's pretty excited about participating and I think it's going to be great for her.
I spent more time than usual in Graham's classroom this week, and got to see some things that I don't usually see. His teacher told me that she's put him in the back of the room so he doesn't bother anyone when he stands up to do his work. This is how G was choosing to work when I was in the classroom the other day....
Whatever works I guess! I also got to see a bit of "choice time" on Friday. G was playing a game with his friend Owen - I think they were both making up their own rules :)
And I'm happy to report that we've finally made it to Spring Break, and not a minute too soon. I've reached a bit of a breaking point at work, and when I went to the dentist on Friday morning I was referred on to a specialist to check out one of my teeth that was puzzling my dentist - it looks like I might need a root canal :( This week off is much needed - I can't wait to go a bit slower and try to recharge a bit.
