March in Our Home

I can’t believe it is already April. This spring is flying by!

Basketball season ended, and while Bud lamented, we enjoyed free Saturdays again. He has been wearing his basketball jersey almost daily since then. It helps that it is reversible, so it gets double the wear. With the end of basketball, soccer season has started for Bud and Sugar. Sugar’s favorite part so far is picking out her outfit for practice, but her coach is really great about engaging a group of 4-5 year old girls.

We made a weekend trip to Houston to visit our friends, the Culpeppers. They are very hospitable, and we had a great time catching up. We took the kids downton on the Metro rail, which blew their little minds. They live near the museum district, so we went to the natural science museum before heading home. It was great reinforcement for our science learning this spring.

The kids were invited to several birthday parties this month, so we had a lot of fun with friends.

Uncle Jason came to town for work, so we made a trip to the hospital lobby to hang out with him for a few minutes and load him up with snacks.

I busted my shin doing 13.2, the second workout of the Crossfit Games Open, not competing, just for fun at home. It was going great, but I missed the box somehow attempting to jump on it. It felt okay, but then it was swelling like crazy and I couldn’t put weight on it. I spent a morning at the ER, but thankfully, it wasn’t broken. I got some crutches which helped me a ton for a few days. I took the rest of the month easy and sat around reading and eating bon bons all day.

We spent a lot of time outside playing basketball, which Speedy calls “shoot, ball!” He can now scale the ladder of our playground in the backyard, bypassing the barrier we put on the bottom two rungs. All the kids continued their digging exploits in the empty area of the garden.

Speedy started making “choo-choos” by lining up his cars and trains. It is so cute and nice that he is playing more on his own for longer periods of time that doesn’t involved climbing on furniture.

We invited friends to join us at the skate park during a weekday midmorning when it is normally empty. The kids loved using their scooters and bikes, but all that concrete nade me a nervous wreck.

I started a new Bradley series in a new location. It is closer to my house and accomodates a larger group of students. I had a few minutes of Bradley teacher fame, and I got to doula at a beautiful hospital birth last week.
