Outdoor fun

Damon absolutely loves playing outside. His two most favorite outdoor activities are mowing the grass with his play mower and playing sports with Daddy. Simply running around is pretty great too!

When Avery was gone one night, I decided to capture Damon's outdoor adventures!

2016 official basketball photo

See what happens when you look in your drafts folder? You find a post that you should have published several months ago.

Here is Avery’s winter basketball photo. She played for Notre Dame in our church’s first and second grade girls league. Daddy was called upon to coach her team because more coaches were needed. You can imagine how busy his basketball season was this year!

We can tell that Avery’s basketball skills are improving. (She will make a good point guard one day!) But we’re not sure if she plays basketball just because Daddy likes it or because she truly likes it. So we’ll have to wait and see if her basketball career continues this fall.

Christmas train in June

After Avery was born, Grandpa Hromada bought a train to play with and display at Christmas. Avery enjoyed it, but things really took off last Christmas when Damon started to love trains. Grandpa decided he had to make his grandson happy, so he added on so much track that the train now runs all the way around the living room. Damon thought it was fantastic!

Then Grandpa got creative and started videotaping his train. Here is his work for all to enjoy!

Final day of first grade

In typical fashion, this school year flew by. Suddenly, we have a second grader!

Avery really loved first grade and her teacher. She grew so much in her academic skills. She is quite the reader and speller, just like Mommy! Sometimes we think math won't be her best subject, then she surprises us by learning some difficult concepts! She lost two teeth in first grade, and just this weekend she finally mastered tying her shoes. Our summer goal is to get the training wheels off of her bicycle!

Here are a few pictures we captured before the school bus arrived this morning. Check out the pictures from Avery's first day of first grade. (Note to self: Find a new place for pictures! The sun is too blinding!) As I predicted, you rocked first grade, AJ! :o)
