Last summer while away at camp Violet discovered tennis, and she really enjoyed it. Ever since we’ve tried to find a way for her to continue playing it, but with our busy schedule, it’s been hard. This last parks and rec session we found a 1 on 1 tennis lesson that mostly worked with our schedule. We had a few weeks that we just couldn’t make it because of other commitments and were even late once or twice trying to switch between activities, but violet loved it and I loved watching her progress each week. Last night was her last class of the session, perhaps its time to get the family some rackets so we can play together.
Today was lacrosse day and Mimico was on fire, the team won both their games. 11-3 and 11-0. After scoring in her ball hockey game last night Violet kept the goals coming with 7 goals in the 2 games today. I don’t know where she gets the energy from.
Today we celebrated Jacob’s birthday with a trip to Canada’s Wonderland. I can’t believe my little boy is 12 years old. It was a great day spent mostly at Splashworks, enjoying the Waterslides, wave pool and Lazy river. We did find time for a trip down the White Water Canyon too.
Today was Ball Hockey practice, and while Violet practised Jacob climbed trees.
At times it seems that all of our free time is taken up running from one kid’s activity to another. Seeing the joy in our kids as they take part in their different activities makes all the effort worth it. So today I have another Lacrosse picture.
Monday night is Lacrosse practice, and I captured these picture of Violet battling her teammate for the ball during one of the drills. I just love how hard she tries at everything.
Today we celebrated Jacob turning twelve with friends, family and of course Video Games. It’s so hard to believe that my boy will be twelve in a week. Where does the time go…
Every year Ruby gets a Dino bone in her stocking. She loves it, Christmas morning while the family opens presents, she happily goes to town on her bone. I thought I’d show what’s left of it after a just over a week.
It was a lazy day, spent mostly in PJs making slime. So what better way to remember it then this picture of violet, as she got all the ingredients for slime creation.
A new year has begun and for my first picture of 2018, I have one from last night. Violet and Jacob playing Pie in the Face showdown. Violet one the round and Jacob rung in the new year with a face of whipped cream.
