The weather in Moscow....

After looking up our blog yesterday, I realize I have left our blog in the dust this summer. The Thompson clan has been busy and have had a great time while doing so! H made the 10U All Star Baseball team this spring. So proud! Anyway, we had 4 tournaments we traveled to during the month of July, mostly. We were also able to go to the pool as much as possible, pick huckleberries, go camping, spend time with friends, watch K play TBall just to name a few things we've accomplished! Whew! I'm tired just thinking about it. It's been wonderfully busy and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Most of you know, my dad lives in Colorado. So truly, our visits are few and far between. It never really dawns on me how far away we live from each other until he comes and goes in one weekend. Our kiddos love Grandpa Dave and always look forward to his visits. We just wish he lived closer than Colorado..... He flew in this weekend on K's 6th birthday. We had ONE BUSY weekend! Dinner at Casa for K's birthday on Friday.... Saturday consisted of Cal Ripken Opening Ceremonies for H at 10, Easter Egg hunt for K at 11, H's first baseball game of the season at 12:30, then wrapped it all up with K's friend birthday at 3:00! It was a fun filled weekend, one that we will always cherish. We just wish the miles between us weren't as big in numbers.....

Christmas 2010 was a successful one. Is it bad to admit I still have a few winter decorations outside?!?! Need. To. Take. Those. Down. Pronto. I always love this time of year. Always overbuy for the kids (maybe that's because I start in January?!?!) and I loved that we decided to stay in our Christmas Jammies all day. It was a wonderful day. Everyone liked what they received and Santa magically came and went again.
K and her friend pre race......
Ready to start the race! On your mark, get set... GO!
Ok, seriously. Where did she get her running skills?!
Look, she regained and is still beating a bunch of those kiddos! (not that it's about winning!)
After the Trot.... she fell down. But I really think it could have been because she didn't come in 1st.
The annual McDonald Elementary Turkey Trot came and went. Although, not without some surprises... Kennedy was seriously leading the pack most of the race.... and if you look at the pictures, by more than just a couple of steps. What happened, you may ask? She hit a patch of ice and had to do some stutter steps.... regained herself and came in fifth! I couldn't believe it! She did a fantastic job and I am sure if she didn't go off the track and hit that ice she would have led those little kindergarteners all the way. She's such a good little runner! The running conditions were so bad out there, I made her wear her softball/soccer cleats! :-) I was so proud of her. She's really turning out to be quite a little athlete!

Her Silly Pose....
Dad got her a corsage!
And They're Off!!!!
I can't wait to hear all about it and hopefully see pics that Bry took. (If you know Bryan, you'll know he hates to take his picture taken, or take pictures unless it's with a fish or with something he's hunted). So, fingers crossed, I'll get to see a few snapshots of the evening. Bryan asked Kennedy to go tothe First annual Father Daughter Princess Ball. Little Missy was so so so excited, she could hardly stand it. She kept asking Bryan how many days left til the ball. It was precious. We dolled her hair up, even put some glitter spray in there for a little extra jazz. What a wonderful moment for just daddy and daughter!

Etsy.com (love that site) to do our Valentine's cards. Well, I got the big idea to put in the quote: "May your Valentine's Day be sprinkled with sweetness" as my kids were gobbling down some ice cream cones.... hence, the somewhat crazy snapshots. (The original pic I took for the card was at B and R with my phone, so it was a low resolution and the ice cream really did have sprinkles.... but these will have to do. Seriously, why does time go by so quickly? Weren't these two just born? H will be 9 next month and K will be 6. Sigh.

Even if you aren't a Vandal fan, you have to admit, this is cool.

H and K outside their school on the first day!
We are all ready for our first day!
K and her teacher at the open house! We love Mrs. B!
As much as I love to be on the computer, I find that I have a hard time keeping up my blog. Things have gotten off to a wonderful start. H and K both love school. They are really enjoying being back and seeing their friends. K is having a hard time adjusting to being away from some of her buddies from preschool. Aaah, growing pains. We try to see those friends as much as we can. They are both in soccer and really liking it! K waited til game 6 to ask when the season was over, compared to game 3 last year. :-) H really gets after it and even "headed" the ball last game. It's been a wonderful start to fall, but busy. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy!
