Jonathan and Irelynd enjoyed an afternoon with friends at the Del Mar races. I was told Irelynd really wasn’t into the “race watching,” but they still seemed to have a good time doing other activities.

Irelynd did her own “racing.” :-)

Irelynd surprised everyone by going down the giant slide.

It helped to have little Xani go first!

First day…

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kari @ 12:28 am
…of preschool for Irelynd.
I am down and out for a while with a herniated disc in my back, so I wasn’t able to actually experience dropping off or picking Irelynd up from her first day…woe is me:-(
Jon, though, did a great job filling in, and he even took some embarrassing ‘first day of school’ pictures for me. And fortunately Irelynd was quite eager to “talk” all afternoon and evevning about her first day, so I really didn’t feel too out of the loop.
Irleynd really was so excited about her big day. I think school is going to be her “thing.” She loves it…especially snack-time :-)

Yes…that is a uniform on my three-year-old.

And yes….that is one of Irelynd’s teachers’, Ms. Lindsay. I think she looks too young to be a teacher, but I’m afraid it’s probably just me getting old!

Sunday, we took a day trip up to L.A. to help celebrate second-cousin Luke’s baptism.
First though, we stopped by to see Jessica, Nate and Gavin.

Pee-Wee finaleeee!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kari @ 12:10 am
Today was Irelynd’s final day of her pee-wee sports program.
She did very well during practice, but by game time it was
much like last week…a lot of standing and staring…grass picking and sky watching.  She did, though, touch the ball one time during the game today! :-)

And today was meet you teacher day at Irelynd’s new school. Irelynd was excited to meet her teacher and see her classroom. I think, though, she was hoping to walk in and see her “favorite teacher that holds me,” Ms. Margaret (her “Texas teacher”):-)

Jon and Jim arrived home safely from China.  SO thankful.
Irelynd is so happy to have daddy home….and equally excited about the presents he brought back for her.

Jon didn’t make it to the Olympics, but he was still able to bring home some fun Olympic memorabilia.

She really was excited…I promise!

Today.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kari @ 12:41 am
Irelynd had soccer today.
She didn’t touch the ball one time.  No dribbling.  No shooting.  No passing.
She looked around a lot…picked a lot of grass…and looked really cute.
Fortunately we have alot of time before 2020.
