BC gave it a try and he's got it, but he's still really afraid of falling. He's not ready to give up his training wheels but I'm super proud of him for trying.

Mama and BLee couldn't be any prouder! He'll be ready for his 1st tri in the summer.

And the girls always have a blast playing outside too.

Riding Solo

We went outside to play with our newly purchased sidewalk chalk. We happened to see that the neighbors were out playing, so we went to play with them.

We discovered the their youngest was intent on riding her bike without training wheels like her big brother. Her mom took her training wheels off and encouraged her to try. She wasn't successful, BUT BL was!! He hopped on her bike and just started riding it like a pro! Go BLee, GO!! Super proud mama moment!

And what better way to celebrate than throwing all the kids in the trampoline with a water hose?!?!

Lighthouse trail

When we first arrived to the island, it was a few days before my birthday. So for my birthday we celebrated by going on a hike at the lighthouse trail. None of us are experienced hikers and didn't know quite what we were getting into. Well, we were hot, uncomfortable, and not prepared but we made it to the top and took in the views. This time around, I just wanted to do some whale watching. I didn't see any whales, but Bradley did. I also took in more of the scenery around of this time vs. being focused on getting to the top. The story goes, it's about the road you travel not the destination, right? This was true of today's hike. We didn't make it to the top, but I think we all enjoyed it a little bit more. It was windy and overcast this time, so hoodies were perfect to keep their little bodies warm.

BC is forever getting his shoes on the wrong feet. Fortunately for him, Bradley noticed before we started on the hike and swapped his shoes for him. Man that would've been a long walk with opposite shoes. ouchers...

School Assembly

Once a quarter the school has a Kindergarten assembly to showcase the skills the students have been learning. The kids sing lots of songs showing off their math and language arts. The joy on each of the children's faces is chatchy. I absolutely love these monthly assemblies!

Start to finish

To start the day...I got in a killer work out. i thought it'd be an easy one, but oh man I was wrong. kicked my butt fo sho!

We also stopped over a friend's house to wish her happy birthday. We picked some flowers threw them in a soda can, drew some pictures, and gave her a Starbucks card to use whenever. it was a nice walk over and the crafting entertained the kids while doing something nice for someone else. Win, win to me.

To finish the night, there was an event for Dr. Suess' birthday at MJs school. Crafts, snacks, and characters to take pictures with. We were only there for a short time. I got overwhelmed quickly trying to keep track of 4 kids with so many people and so much activity. The kids had fun though and didn't seem to mind that we had to bail because I was so anxious.
