Our Year of Stories 4/52

The letter of the week was K and we had wind advisories!
I can’t imagine us doing anything other than flying a kite on this Monday afternoon.

She thinks she’s being sneaky because she’s reading Brother’s magazine at the bottom of the playroom stairs.
I just love that she is excited to “read” and can’t wait to see which series she chooses in the next couple of years.

This is our favorite room in the house, the front porch, at our favorite time of day, bus drop-off.
She had her feet kicked up, looking at her “Brother Book,” waiting on his bus to zoom past the house.

This kid is obsessed with Legos!
He’s in the middle of a pen holder for Dad’s work desk here – (yes, Dad brought it to work and is using it).

Our car line has had major issues this year, most of which I personally called the school to rectify.
I was on the verge of causing my own car line problem, stopping to take a photo of her in the rear view mirror when traffic stalled.
I couldn’t help it – look how darned cute she is!

This was a long morning of watching Brother’s pinewood derby and basketball game, so we all deserved a treat after.

They didn’t win the basketball game, but he shot 4 times, which is an improvement from last week when he said,
“I don’t want to shoot during the games and miss, so I pass it to people who I think are the best shooters.”
He’s a great shooter and never hesitates to shoot and sink all the time at practice.

He did win 2nd place in the Derby, but I don’t have a picture of that winning moment.
They announced the wrong winners during the ceremony.
I hate that he had to go through the disappointment of working so hard on something,
achieving the goal of winning, and then not getting recognized.
But I’ve never been prouder of him.
He bit his lip, shook the winners’ hands,
and calmly told us he thought there was some sort of mistake.
He will get a medal at a later meeting, and he is fine with that.
I should be as mature as him.
When I look at the picture of them not calling his name,
(I clicked the shutter right when they said it), it breaks my Momma heart.
So much that it’s too personal to post here,
so you get the Good to the Last Drop ice cream picture!


They have a uniform, but tights, shoes, and other accessories are not included.
She goes big on the tights, shoes and other accessories.
