Silas in Soccer

Silas decided to try his hand at soccer in the fall. He had a good time, although he seemed more excited about high-fiving and hugging his teammates than he was about scoring goals – which is fine by us! Here are a few pics from the season.

Neighborhood BBQ

At the end of summer our neighborhood got together for a shindig on the beach. We had a potluck BBQ, relay race, games, and lots of good company. Here’s the view looking back at the beach from the water:

Jonathan, Kieron, and Jeff setting up some Jenga

We had a relay race. Here are a couple of the boys doing the kayak leg

Ianthe and I lost the peddleboat leg by a mile! I think we had too much weight in the back!

This was a cool team-building exercise! Two long boards of wood that the group had to “walk” with all in unison

Chris Reynolds, a childhood friend of Nana’s, here all the way from Westport, NZ. The boys adored him! Here he is trying to teach Silas to tie his shoes.

Back to School 2017

This is the only year all three of the boys will attend the same school together. Avery is in 5th, Kieron is in 2nd, and Silas is in kindergarten. Here are their first-day photos:

This was technically Avery & Kieron’s first day of school, but not Silas’. Kindergartners start a couple days later.

Sunny August

Despite the smokey days, we did still have a few sunny, clear days, and they were glorious!
