Our September

Our September and back to school took off like a bang with lots of activities!  Liam is in an awesome class with lots of his friends and a really sweet teacher, Mrs. Inskeep.  Their class lead the assembly recently.  

We too a short weekend trip to Oklahoma City to visit the zoo and explored an awesome park next to our hotel in downtown OKC.  

Liam is back to soccer this fall playing on a competitive traveling team.  He has turned into a great player and spends many hours a week practicing and many of our weekends are spent traveling to the Tulsa area for games.   We are sad to see our good friends, the Kaylors, move away to Bellingham, WA but are excited for their opportunity to live in a super cool place.  We spent a lot of time with them in the last few weeks before they moved.  Liam loves ‘babysitting’ Coco and Ellie.  The kids helped us pick the huge 29 pound watermelon from the garden.  Our watermelons were huge this year!
One Saturday afternoon, the kids and I went with their friends Ethan and Jake to the Tanganyika Wildlife Park.  It was an interactive zoo where the kids were able to pet and feed many of the animals and experience an up close view.   We participated in a fun run in Ponca City and Liam took first place!!

Liam’s class took a field trip to the Rose Hill School House where they traveled back in time to early Oklahoma in 1910 and spent a day experiencing what life was like for students at that time.  It was a really fun and eye opening experience, and I think they appreciated coming back to Mrs. Inskeep at Woolands!

Back to school already

Our August was quiet with some unusually rainy days and gearing up for back to school.  Both boys spent many hours reading (Rocco makes a great reading buddy and pillow).

First day of school on August 13th…both boys have grown up so much since we moved here.  Landon started 1st grade and Liam started 4th.  Both have wonderful and kind teachers and lots of friends in their class.

Landon was awarded the Eagle Extreme award for his class the first week of school!  

Minnesota Summer?

We continued our summer road tripping with a trip to Minnesota to visit Tim’s family.  Unfortunately we happened to be there for one of the coldest weekends of the summer, so the boys didn’t spend much time in the water.  With all the cousins and second cousins, they still had a blast.  

Birthday Olympics

Liam celebrated his milestone birthday with all of his buddies with the coolest birthday party ever!  Tim planned the Birthday Olympics to keep all these energetic boys entertained and having fun.  They competed in synchronized diving, frisbee golf, swimming laps, diving for rings, the free throw, and soccer dribbling. They are such great boys and had an awesome time.
