Boston pictures

First day of Kindergarten! (It's ironic that he's wearing his Cubs shirt.  His teacher may not remember his name!)

Leslie learns to dive at swimming lessons.

 Treading water. 

Boston attempting to backfloat.  They teach the hand movements "Monkey, Airplane, Soldier".  That part he could do.

One of our favorite things is to go to the Parade of Homes.  We haven't been for several years and thought it would be fun to get to know our new area better.  (Also, Mark likes to talk to the builders about their financing options.)  This is the UP House, not far from us.  It was super cute inside, I especially liked the turquoise retro appliances.  Macy liked getting a free balloon, that she promptly lost.  Mark spoiled her and went back for another.

Mark, Leslie, "Mr. Frederickson, and Russell".

Sometimes we are lured into a home with a promise of free ice cream.  Mark found out that this is not such a great idea if you are bringing a toddler along.  Fudgsicle all down her legs and car  seat, and nary a wet-wipe to be found.  We ended up using one of the boys dirty socks that had been left in the van, doused in hot water from my water bottle, to clean her up.  The sock was not THAT dirty.

We also hosted a birthday party with the cousins for Mark's Dad.  He turned 70, and he looks pretty happy about it, doesn't he?

Boston's tough guy-Mom-don't-cry-sheesh face.  (I didn't.  Until after I dropped him off.)

Mr. Big Stuff. He looks like he had his first day of school game face on. What a big dude.
