...Friday, we celebrated one of my best friend's birthday (she's the kiddos' auntie). She loves to golf, so she bought little practice balls (and she got each of the kids a driver, including a leftie for E!), and they went out and whacked balls. I really don't enjoy golf at all (and neither does DH), so L knows that if she wants to golf with the kids, she'll need to initiate it completely. She said D likd it (shocker -- he likes anything sports-minded) but E was sick of it after maybe fifteen minutes (yeah, another surprise, ha).
...yesterday was the school's fun run -- and D ended up being the fastest 4th grade boy! Of course, today, he's really sore...:D But I think he felt good about that. He was third in his age category (9-10 year old boys), but the other two boys are both 5th graders (and only beat him by two and three minutes). However, a 3rd grade girl beat him -- she's impressive! E walked most of it but still made it in the top half of all the participants. (I didn't technically participate -- I simply walked and then found a shortcut to pick up E.) I guess they made a good amount, all told, and the weather was gorgeous -- a great day!
...7 1/2 days of school left (including today)...I'm just hoping we can hang on :)
