This week Tanner had a poetry recital. The whole class selected poems by Shel Silverstein, and he chose Warning, a poem about a sharp toothed snail that lives inside your nose and bites your finger if you stick it in. Given his poem topic, I found it amusing he wanted to pick up a shirt and tie for the recitation. He selected this lovely combo, wore it proudly (and a little sleepily) and did a great job of presenting his poem.

Spring soccer is in full swing, and this is Kaya’s first time playing. It is quite a sight seeing these little girls run around the field, and despite not scoring a single goal this season (well in their goal at any rate – they’ve added a few to other teams’ scoreboards), they seem to be having fun.

This was one of those weeks. You the know, the ones filled with kid faces hitting hard surfaces, shoes being ripped to shreds as laces get tangled in spin bike pedals, forgetting that box tops on the roof rack keep you from fitting into the garage, ear infections, allergic reaction to antibiotics…you get the gist. But, it ended nicely with an afternoon spent on the deck, the kids playing and the hints of summer in the air.

So, this past week I was away from the kids and visiting my family in Virginia, celebrating my sister’s growing belly and throwing her a baby shower. As such, my portrait for week 15 is of my sister her husband and her growing family. More shower photos to come, especially the maternity portraits and pictures of the handmade goodies.

This was our last week of the Bombers ski program at Breckenridge, and the first time I brought the kids up solo as Drew is traveling. We did just fine the three of us, with only two little bumps in the road: forgetting the sunscreen (hence his red nose & red cheeks and his sad little chapped chin) and a glove that went MIA for a bit, but was later found when we back tracked. It has been fun seeing the kids enjoy the Bombers ski program, and learn a ton. Tanner says his favorite things about skiing are jumping, moguls (or movels as he call them from time to time) and skiing in the trees. Oy! Kaya quickly announced she liked jumping best too…double Oy! But, even though I have not seen her do any jumping, she is one to do things with gusto…be it skiing, protesting, snuggling or finger painting.
