Rose got to go to school from 9:15-1:15 and visit all of the 1st grade classrooms and teachers. She loved it! Benji got to be her and Ellie’s 6th grade buddy! He loved it. Rose loved walking home with all the neighborhood kids.
This year they didn’t get split into their new classes and see who their new teacher might be so… we all just have to wait to find out. We are getting a new Principal and Vice Principal this next year so…
Ray is getting excited to go to Kindergarten!
I bought a couple of 10$ backpacks at Walmart 8 years ago. Benji started using 1 of them in Kindergarten and has had the same back pack EVERY year of Elementary school!! The zipper just broke this last week 🙁 He’s finishing out the last 3 weeks with a new backpack.
Benji, Packer and Cali had their 1st piano recital!
Benji played William Tell Overture, Packer played Twinkle Twinkle and Cali played Yankee Doodle.
sometimes you just need a day off…
but I did get Benji registered for Junior High.
And Grandma and Grandpa watched the little kids while we met to get our Will started!
Then I took Benji to get his 7th grade shots and we shopped a little while Kelsey played with all of the kids at home in the beautiful weather that we are still enjoying.
Benji had to write a Thanksgiving poem for school. I thought it turned out great. His peers also told him it was good. He carried it around in his pocket and read it to all of our friends and family over the next week 🙂
wrestling practice started November 1st.
that’s why Benji still had all of his Halloween candy cause he has no time to eat it.
we were gone the first 2 weekends so we just got their first tournament in!!
I love this soccer family. Soccer dominates our spring and fall but we all enjoy it. We had practices Monday through Wednesdays and then games all day Saturday, literally 8am-5pm. Benji played on an older team this year with 12 and 13 year olds and still with a lot of his old team. Packer still loves playing on the same team as Luca. Cali got to play with goalies and with Mia, Anna, and Claira with Uncle Matt helping coach. Rose got to play with Ellie and Gentry this year. And Ray ended up being with our neighbors Noah and Ivy. They will stay with these same teams in the Spring. Ben loves coaching these kids and these kids love Ben as a coach!
