First Cross Country Race

Today was the first Cross Country race for Andrew and Mari. Cross Country and Soccer have been lifesavers during the pandemic because they are all outside and it gives the kids a chance to exercise and see their friends. Mari, Andrew, and Elliot are all running this year. Elliot’s first meet isn’t for a couple of weeks.

Lucia and Andrew Birthday Party

This evening we celebrated Andrew and Lucia’s birthdays with the Reagens, Liesses, and Elsie and Abbot from next door. Lucia wanted walking tacos and Andrew always has Skyline, so we made walking tacos with Skyline taco meet (and some regular taco meet for those who prefer it). It was a fun night with good food and good company.

Andrew’s 16th Birthday

Today we mini-celebrated Andrew’s 16th birthday. He was supposed to have a cross country meet out of town, so we didn’t plan anything. The meet was cancelled because of the weather and his team arranged a duel meet with another local team. Andrew ran a great race and we picked up a mini chocolate cake for afterward.
