The Pirates from Grammar Island

Kacee's 3rd grade class put on a musical, 'Pirates from Grammar Island'. They did such a great job. Kacee was the Adjective Librarian & even had a solo. It was fun to watch her having a good time & mouthing the words to everyone's part! They signed autographs after the show, then off to ice cream with Aunt Kori!

Family Librarian

So Kacee was this librarian in her school play, Aunt Kori is a librarian & even grandma was a librarian. As we were getting Kacee ready for her role we had to find something librarianish for her to wear.

Kacee said, "Let's call Aunt Kori, she will have something I can borrow ... like a sweater vest!"
Mom, (smiling), "That's a great idea Kacee, give Aunt Kori a call"
Kacee calling Aunt Kori, "I need borrow something to dress up like a librarian for my play"
Aunt Kori, "What would you like to borrow?"
Kacee, "A sweater vest, every librarian has a sweater vest"

At this point all we could do was hear Aunt Kori laughing thru the phone! Needless to say that Aunt Kori told Kacee she has never or will she ever wear a sweater vest!

Sandy & Kate ... A Love Story

Okay, so Kate & Sandy have this Love/Hate relationship going on. Kate LOVES to pick up Sandy & hold her...Sandy HATES it when Kate does that. (her growling confirms this!) But as soon as Kate is unaware, Sandy LOVES her!

What Happens in Vegas

Kaila's soccer team made another trip down to the Las Vegas for the Mayor's Cup tournament. They played well, won a couple, lost a couple. They played 2 Canadian teams that they beat.
We had a good time in Vegas. We went shopping, driving around in a little yellow sports car, walking the strip & 'unseasonably' cold weather!

Baseball Season

And we are off & running in a new sports season...Baseball! Kyle & Kacee both tried out for Cal Ripken. Kacee was really excited about tryouts & was one of the only girls there to try out with the boys! They both had great tryouts!

And then we wait, and wait, to find out what team they got drafted to! The results are in... Kacee is playing AA for the Red Sox!

And Kyle got drafted to the Majors on the New York Yankees!

Sandy's Her Name if You Please

She is finally here! All of the way from Iowa, Sandy, our new little puppy is here. She is a little Malti-Poo! Kate wanted to name her Sandy because she has been watching 'Annie'. She was waiting for us at the airport!
She is such a cute dog with a sweet personality. She warmed up to everyone right away & made herself at home!
She has even made friends with Duncan, which is not an easy thing!

Kate's 1st Trip to the Dentist

It was with much hesitation that I took Kate to the dentist for the first time. Why, you ask? Well, my Kacee has had MANY traumatic episodes at the dentist to where she now has MAJOR dental anxiety. No, I'm serious...screaming, yelling, kicking ... & one time from the waiting room Kyle could hear Kacee "YOU'RE TRYING TO KILL ME". So needless to say, I now have a little dental anxiety taking my kids to the dentist! But, I am happy to report that Kate had a fantastic trip to the dentist, no cavities & more importantly no screaming, yelling or kicking! Good job Kate!
