Tiger:  Mom, can I go outside?
Me:  Sure
Tiger:  I do love a good morning stroll.

Sparky had a great Spring soccer season. After taking a year off from outdoor soccer he really came back with a renewed passion that we hadn't seen for quite a while. One game while I was taking pictures I managed to capture this shot. I don't remember what the end result was or why he was in the air, but I think it's pretty fun.

A compliment?

The kids wanted to show me something down the street that they had been building in the snow so I put on my winter coat over my bright pink hoodie, shoved my feet in Sparky's boots and started walking down the street with Tiger and Woo.

Tiger: Mom, I like that. You look good like that. You look regular.

2014 - A Review

As I have sat and thought about 2014 the only thought that keeps coming to my mind is that 2014 was not my favorite. I'm definitely not sad to see that year come to an end and am therefore looking forward to a new start with 2015. This next year has got to be better.

Easy to please

Me: Tiger, what do you want for your birthday?

Tiger: A new Star Wars Lego set, presents, and stuff.

First day vs. last day

 First day thumbs-up. This year was a rough one.
 End of the school year "just ready to be done" smiles. Goodbye 5th and 1st grades.
P.S. Bring my baby's baby face back. He seems to have lost the last little bits of it this year.
 Plus, it wouldn't be the last day of school if I didn't have some kids slathered up with sunscreen and wearing a tie-dyed shirt. My Woo was particularly bugged with her shirt this year. Unfortunately she was stuck with the colors of blue and black. "I look like a big bruise," she said.
 He started the year so full of hope and excitement.
 Now he's older and wiser. Adios 7th grade.
