Crap. It’s been four and a half months since I’ve put anything on here. I’ll have to go back and post previous things (Cub Scout, soccer, basketball, St. Patrick’s Day, school things, etc) later but until then, here is what is going on:
Kenny is doing great at school (as always). We went to EL the other week and were able to see the different things he’s been working on, including acting in a short silent movie, power point, brain teasers and reports. He plays soccer competitively year round and I just love his coach and the organization (KC Legends). They are just so good at teaching the boys strategy and skills. He played basketball this winter and baseball season has already started. I really wish baseball started in May when soccer is over or at least close to it.
I am absolutely amazed at how well his reading has come and I owe it all to his teacher. He has come so far and I’m so proud of him. He played with a Legends soccer team this winter and the team went competitive this spring. His coach is talking about keeping the team together all next year too. If not, he’ll tryout for a competitive team this summer. He played basketball this winter and is playing baseball this spring. Luke’s 7th birthday is coming up at the end of this month.
He’s still coaching and working his normal job, on top of being the assistant coach for Kenny’s baseball team. The man is busy. He’s a little scruffy for work and has people tell him that he looks like Bradley Cooper all the time. He loves it.
Work is going well. Our swim team and Speedo brought in Ryan Lochte last month. I’ll do a whole post on that some day. I have problems with my feet and plantar fasciitis. My feet actually feel pretty good right now but I still feel it when I’m on them for too long or walk too far. For example, we went to the zoo during Spring Break and I was hobbling out of bed the next morning. I started an 8 week bootcamp at Fusion back in January and loved it so much that I’m on #2. It’s mainly spin related so it doesn’t bother my feet at all. We can do studio classes too. They are the hardest classes I’ve ever done but I feel so much stronger and better now. Fusion is seriously the best place. It’s a little intimidating at first but everyone there is so nice and encouraging. I’m addicted. I’m currently doing their 30 workouts in 30 days April challenge. We can’t count our bootcamps so that means I’m doing 38 workouts in 30 days. I’ve done 17 so far (or 23 if you count my bootcamps). My birthday is on Friday but we’re not celebrating until Saturday because Kenny has a baseball game.
– Mac and Camille:
Mac’s ACL seems fine. Camille is still hanging on, even though she has cancer. We didn’t do anywhere over Spring Break because we weren’t sure about how she would be doing at that point. She does drool more and more on the side of her mouth that has the tumor. She’s lost 5 pounds since we last took her in back in November. I swear that her love of the soft, canned dog food that we now buy her is keeping her alive:)
