Future Softball Player?!?!

Ryan has been talking about wanting Kira to play softball for a long time. They went to a Reds game with I was in Boston, and know she would like to play. Kira has never done anything related to it, but tonight Ryan took her out to hit a few balls and...SHE DID AMAZING! She hit quite a few that would have gotten her to first base--easy!

I think it would be so much fun if she played this coming summer. I know Ryan would love spending time at the ball fields (he was a college baseball player haha!) I played softball when I was little and I LOVED it! Anyways, I just thought I would share that ;)

Would You Like Some Chowdah?

I went to Boston with my parents last week to keep my mom company while my dad had his yearly dealer market. I was super thankful for them inviting me! Mom and I toured the city, while my dad was at his dealer market all day. It was fun, and interesting but HOT! The temperature was 95-100 everyday, and the humidity was 90-95%! Mom and I did the duck tour of Boston, the Freedom Trail, rode the trolley all around the city, went to the old graveyards, and did a little shopping! In the evening dad joined us for some amazing seafood! our favorite was Leader's Seafood. They serve their clam chowder when we get a new president. Anyways, the trip was great and I enjoyed spending time with my parents! My 1st WHOLE Lobstah

Has It Really Been OVER A Month?!?

Yikes! I am 1 month, and 4 days behind! So, Kira started school and is LOVING it. Her teacher this year is Mrs. Benson. They don't change classes as much this year, as they did last. She is really excited that she is learning about health, and science. She is learning algebra too...I think that we are going to have to do quite a bit of studying at home.
Happy 4th Grader!
Kira is growing like a weed! We bought her new tennis shoes this summer...and...she can barely put her foot in them now. So, tonight Ryan, Kira, Rachel Lett, and myself headed to the mall for some new kicks...She got a new pair of purple/silver Nike running shoes. They are size 5! Then we stopped and got some Nike pink/orange basketball shoes, size 5! It is crazy! I can no longer go and buy her shoes without her trying them on :(...I know that the day is approaching that she will no longer like the clothes that I bring home :(, but for now she still likes them!
