Yes, Sensei!

Jack earned his orange belt this afternoon after six weeks of karate! He and his classmates performed several samples of their work for the parents, including reciting a pledge, demonstrating a confident greeting and handshake, and performing a flying thrust kick!

Thank you, Cyr family, for my Build-a-Bear gift card! I went to get Sir Barks-a-lot a brother. I named him "Brother."

Hail to the Victor

Well, I knew it wouldn't be too long before my sons started to dominate me in sports, but so early? Jack beat me in a game of PIG today, and when I went on and on about how I couldn't believe my six-year-old beat me in basketball, he quickly piped up "yeah, I beat Dad last week, too."

Jerusalem Walk

Jack's class, along with the other classes put on a Jerusalem Walk at school this morning. We walked through the decorated halls depicting the Triumphant Entrance, the Last Supper, The Crucifixion, and The Empty Tomb.

Chillin' 'tween my cones...

When my neighbor asked what Sam wanted for his birthday, I casually threw out the idea of getting him a real construction cone, telling her that we had seen one in Lowe's, and he kind of liked the idea. Well, it went over quite spectacularly!


My li'l weirdos:)

Street Sweeper Dr.

Sam got this street sign as a late birthday present, and I couldn't believe Rick agreed to mount it on the mailbox. So glad he did--it made Sam's day!

Fourteen Years!

The UK Wildcats are the 2012 NCAA men's basketball champions! It's been a looooong time since they brought home the title, but it was worth the wait. What a sweet victory!

Construction Heaven

Sam, watching the paver, grader, and dozer all working on our new neighborhood tennis courts. He brought his dumptruck and cone...just in case;)
