Drew's 2nd Grade Music Program

A month ago, Drew told us he had volunteered for a speaking part at his 2nd grade music program.  For many kids, this is not a big deal.  For Drew, this is a big deal.  He is generally very shy so it was a little shocking when he said he volunteered for the speaking role.  I was nervous for him, but he did great and didn't appear nervous at all.  Guess I was worried for nothing.

Still Busy

Swimming lessons, basketball and baseball are in full swing and keep us BUSY every weekend.  It takes two of us to get everyone where they need to be.  When Andy had another work trip to Australia in January, things got interesting for me!  If you were wondering, it is not possible to be in two places at once.  Times like this, it would be really nice to have family in town.  But, we got through it just fine!  

We dropped Andy off at the airport on Saturday morning and headed straight to swimming lessons.  Drew had baseball practice right in the middle of what should have been Ryan's nap and thankfully one of the other parents offered to pick Drew up because Andy was out of town.  The kids had a basketball game right after Drew's baseball practice finished.  Kayley made her first basket ever in a game!  And she didn't stop there.  She got a second one!  Guess how many I got on video?  Neither one.  :-(  I just wasn't ready for it the first time and then on the second one, Ryan was pulling on my arm so I didn't get anything.  She was SO proud when she got done and wanted me to make sure I sent Andy a text to let him know!  Drew had a good game and I did get some video of him scoring.

After basketball, we headed to my friend's house for the evening.  Drew and Kayley had fun with her kids and Ryan loved all of the attention he received.

All three kids missed Andy so we made him several videos while he was gone.

Drew and Kayley had what was supposed to be their final basketball game today (they just scheduled one more for next Saturday).  And guess what?  Yep, Kayley scored again!  And I got it on video this time!  You will have to take my word for it that it is her shooting the ball!  I was on the other side of the court, but when you upload it to Blogger, it looks even farther away.

Here are a couple of pictures of them getting their trophies and one of the team:
