Rose is playing soccer for the first time this year, on a U6 team. She is having a lot of fun on and off the field.
Mari is playing soccer for Valley this year. Here is a picture from her first game, at Waukee Stadium
Elliot’s first track meet of the year, in Indianola. I think he ran the 800.
They are never all running in the same meet this year, so we had to get a picture or Andrew, Mari, and Elliot before they left the house on meet day.
My uncle Tom, who lives in Colorado Springs, has not been doing well. His mental and physical health have been declining and I had the opportunity to go visit with him for a few days at the end of last week. Susan stayed home on kid duty and I spent my days visiting with Tom, making time for a hike each day.
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.
