Grammy’s Birthday

We went to Grammy and Papa’s in April for part of spring break and brought Grammy back with us for a while. Papa came to celebrate her birthday at our place. We had a lot of fun catching up. Happy birthday, Grammy!

Silas in Hockey

Silas  started hockey early in the year. He loved it and kept at it for months. It was so fun watching him improve on the ice and play a sport he enjoyed so much.

Unfortunately, we discovered at his latest cardiologist checkup at the end of summer, that Silas’ condition has progressed more than we would like. Nothing crazy serious, but his doctor said he should not do isometric sports. And she said she he should stop hockey.

I was so sad to break the news to him. Lucky for us, Silas had a good attitude about it. Although he loves the speed part of skating, he was very clear he did not want to do figure skating when I floated the idea as a possibility. We’ll just get him to open skate to play around sometimes. He is going to give basketball another try.

Such a sad month for Kieron. His best friend, Louis, moved to Rhode Island. They spent a lot of time together the month before their move.

I feel like getting our Covid vaccines was such a momentous occasion, it deserved its own post. Jonathan and I were anxious to get ours and to help protect our family and community. As we all know, when the vaccines first came out they were a bit hard to get. The Snoqualmie Tribe teamed up with local fire departments to host a few vaccination events and opened their doors to all local eligible adults back in March. They even had care packages and a photo booth! We are so grateful to them for putting this together and helping protect our community.
