Track Nights 2012

 Track nights in our town are on Monday night.  The kids race in heats against kids in similar age groups.  Everett is competing against 9 and 10 year olds.  Isobel races against 5 or 6 year olds.  Her running style has only sightly improved!  She continues to take up the whole lane with elbows swinging and feet sprawling.  She becomes more composed the faster she gets down the track.  They love it.  They each do 50m hurtles, 100m dash,  200m, 400m, 800m, long jump and mini javelin.

Everett is in the far lane in a black shirt.  Here he is back in 2008.  Both of them in 2009, 2010.

Abigail is just along for the ride still.

It's gonna be a busy weekend

We are looking forward to reclaiming our back yard.  It took my men about an hour to destroy and remove our old walk way.  I have to see how we can use this for Scouts ;-)

Crossover 2012

Everett became a Webelos (We Be Loyal Scouts) last night.  These two years of Cub Scouts will transition him into Boy Scouts.

 Ian greeted him with a new shirt
 Papa pinned some elements on
Although blurry, this was my favorite picture of the men.

I'm very proud of Everett's (and mine!) accomplishments thus far.  Now it becomes more of him and man time!

I take Isobel's picture every year in our neighbors cheery blossoms.  This year I got to take both girls photos.

Abigail almost 5 mo

Abigail 5 mo and Isobel 5 yrs

I've been so focused on getting Abigail sleeping though the night (another sinus infection for both girls, and a cold and laryngitis for me did not help), staying current with school so as to finish on time, and helping Everett in his activities (baseball and Scouts) that there has been very little time for anything blogging to record any of it.  If I did have a minute I tried to be with my hubby who has been working 8-10 hour days 5-6 days a week.
