Abigail performed "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and "Fiddler on the Roof" at the piano recital today. She keeps time with her little body as she plays.
Joseph was slated to play as well, but his baseball team kept advancing in the playoffs so he had game we were not expecting. Luckly, he did all the preparation for the recital (practicing, memorizing his piece, etc.) so he got the benefits even though he didn't perform.
Anna was very sick so I actually stayed home with her--missing both the recital and most of the game.

This week Abigail turned the corner on two-wheel bike riding. She's got it down and LOVES to bike. This morning she woke up at 6:30 and was ready to ride around the neighborhood. It is so fun to see her accomplish this; she has been afraid and it didn't come easily to her, which most things actually do. It is wonderful to see her develop confidence and independence.

I am so proud of Joseph! He has worked really hard this year! I love watching him play.
It is fun to see how much he has improved--stealing bases with these leads that often require diving back for the base, hitting hard, making great plays in the field. And, most important to me, being a good teammate.
His games have been mostly late this season so the girls have only been able to attend a few. Marc typically puts them to bed while I watch my boy play! But on the occasions they have come, they enjoy the nearby playground with the climbing apparatus, or playing on iphones--this definitely is a new generation!!

Arlington County School District has a property called the "Outdoor Lab," that they use for field trips, nature and science education activities. They had an open house day for families--we got to take a pontoon boat ride, go fishing, hold snakes, roast s'mores, and just have an all around great day! To make it more special, Grandma Charlotte was visiting from Missouri so she spent the day with us!

Abigail joined Girl Scouts as a Daisy this year. She enjoyed being with friends, especially friends from our neighborhood, Bella and Ebha. Luckily, there were many family nights as well so Anna was able to join in with the big girls.
