I can't believe Tommy is done with preschool forever! He is now ready for the "big time!" As his teacher put it the other day. I'm so excited to see what the future brings for him and know he will do his best. We will miss St. Paul's and his preschool buddies dearly. His teachers told me it's going to be hard to say goodbye to him, it was hard to say goodbye to them too, they have taught Tommy so much. Now it's onto the next adventure! Can't wait to see what kindergarten brings us! We are so proud of you, Tommy!
We have been pretty busy with baseball and soccer this year. Between the two sports we are gone most evenings and Saturday mornings. Chris is assistant coaching both teams, so that leaves me with AJ! He has had so much fun going to the games. There are a lot of other siblings at the games that he knows which helps a ton...then I'm actually able to watch some of the games too! AJ has had fun running around with the other kids and playing all sorts of games. The other night one of the older children taught AJ how to do a wheel barrel race, he loved it and kept asking to do it again! We have really lucked out with great weather for the games so all the children get to run and play. Here are a few pictures of AJ and the other children playing at the baseball fields. I haven't been able to snap any soccer pictures yet...but will try soon! Tommy is still on the Blue Sharks and is loving every minute of it. He loves playing both sports.
The other night Tommy had his first baseball game. He had a fantastic time. In his league, they give each child three chances to hit the ball from a pitching machine, if the do not get a hit, they bring out the tee, so everyone has a chance to hit the ball. They play three innings, which is plenty for them at this age! He had a lot of fun and has many friends from the neighborhood and school on his team. We are looking forward to watching him and his teammates grow this season! Good luck, Gray Sharks!
This past weekend was Tommy's much awaited Spring Program at School. The theme was "A Mother Goose Party." Each child in his class had a special role in the program. Tommy was Jack from "Jack and Jill." His friend, Helaina, was Jill. I must say they made the cutest Jack and Jill couple I have ever seen! Tommy was a bit nervous because he had to dance with Helaina like Mommies and Daddies do, as he told me! But they did an awesome job, and were just so cute.
Preschool is coming to a close for us, and I can't believe it. This program was one of the "lasts" things for him at St. Paul's. We have truly loved our experience there and can't for AJ to start his adventure in a few years...hope they are ready for him!
