Going for the Gold

Claire's been taking a gymnastics class so look out for her in the Summer Games of 2024!  That is especially true if "Women's Run Across the Floor Exercise Mat and Drink Out of the Water Fountain" becomes an event.  She would also dominate in "Run Around in a Circle Until You Fall and Giggle."

Gabby Douglas who?

The foam pit is definitely her favorite apparatus.

She also likes this one which is like the vault, only with 100% less air time.

This is "Jump From Circle to Circle."  For Claire, the circles are more like launch pads for the above-referenced "Run Around in a Circle Until You Fall and Giggle."

She also likes the beam.  But clearly not as much as the foam pit...

Back to School!

On Monday, we celebrated/mourned TWO first days of school!

Henry was off to his first day of kindergarten (!) with his new backpack, lunchbox and water bottle in tow...

Meanwhile, Claire had her first day of any kind of school!

Already reading...she's a genius!

Her cold and runny nose didn't stop her from having a great first day.

She likes her dolls like she likes her hot dogs: naked.

Apparently on the playground, Claire means business.
