Back to School 2017

This is the year that both of the boys are finally with me at my school.  I am so excited for this!  B just started 2nd grade and T is in the pre-k 5 class.  Both of them have great teachers and are already loving every minute.  The transition was very smooth for everyone, including T.  So YAY for that!  Below are some pictures from the first week.

Cape Cod 2017

We just finished up our summer vacation in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.  We had such a great week!  This year we stayed in a real Cape style house that had a loft bedroom for the boys and a fun spiral staircase.  It was a block from a rocky beach and about a 1/2 mile to a smoother beach and awesome boardwalk.  We jumped on trampolines, raced go karts, went bowling, read books, laid on the beach, ate a LOT of seafood and burgers, swam in the ocean and a huge pond, went fishing and caught a shark! It was a nice, relaxing week before heading back to the real world of school and work.  We had family and friends visit to break up the week and enjoyed all of our time.  Here is our trip from start to finish in pictures:

BIG Day for Ben!

Ben accomplished two great things on Friday afternoon.  He earned his orange belt in taekwondo and (even bigger) he performed on stage for the first time.  He decided that this year he would do a comedy act in the variety show on the last day of camp.  So he and a friend got up there and did it!  It was amazing, and I was so proud of him for having the courage to go on stage and put himself out there.  Go Ben!
