Fun Run

Sawyer's preschool hosted a fun run for all the kids. It's an annual fundraiser that the kids love!

Sawyer taking off…can you spot him…3rd kid from the left in blue pants and gray shirt

Sawyer in action and taking a water break

He ran by himself at times, but he also found friends and would run a lap with them. The run was 30 minutes in length and Sawyer ran 2.5 miles. I thought that was great for someone who has never intentionally run more than 1 lap. He had so much fun!

I spent the run trying to keep this kid away from the big kids water bottles. He was obsessed! Obviously I failed ;)

Nora also joined in on the fun. She ran several laps with Sawyer and her friend, Leah. She actually ran more than I ever thought she would, especially since she wasn't dressed for running ;)

and he's off…this kid wanted to follow the big kids

Sawyer blowing bubbles; a little spring cleaning…not to gross you out but that was my rag and hands after cleaning our couch…ewww; Daddy and Sawyer hug; I don't know if others do this but sometimes I take a pic to make sure my hair looks ok…when I actually do my hair; my 3 boys; our living room ready to host Easter; family silly selfie on Good Friday; family selfie on Good Friday; family selfie on Easter (at least our attempt); Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia #happyeaster #partyoffive; my backwards girl with her leotard over her pants, shoes on the wrong feet and helmet on backward; me and my baby; testing out the tee-pee; Mommy and Kolter bday party selfie; Kolter's cowboy and indian birthday party decor

Date night w/ 2 of my loves #dimplesmakememelt #daddysboy #awanababysittingnight

We had fun celebrating cowboy Kolter's 1st birthday! He was quick on the draw with the sweets! #happy1stbirthday #cowboysandindians #sugarhigh; Nora loves coloring but she has just started to venture into drawing, this evolved into a pink horse and is one of her first drawings (age 3); #1 and #3 being cute; they are finally loose and it's time to play at the park again; my baby boy eating a pb&j like a big kid; this is my view most of the time…Kolter at my feet; Sawyer with some battle scars; Kolter in a full squat…I wish I could squat like that

Soccer Season

This spring Sawyer played on his first soccer team, the Lightening Bugs! He loved it!

Sawyer after his 1st practice

After the first soccer practice he ran to me and said, "that was fun, but I'm tired!" I've never heard those words uttered by my him before ;) That's also the reason we put him in soccer…to run off some energy.

Sawyer (#3) with his friend from school
We chose this league because it was close to home and on a convenient evening, so we were surprised and excited when a boy from Sawyer's preschool was also on his team.

The first part of the practice they ran drills and learned new skills. The second part of practice they scrimmaged. Sawyer learned lots of new skills and certainly progressed over the 6 week season.

At this point he is not super competitive (maybe he never will be), but he loved just playing the game! He did score several goals during the scrimmages. He may or may not have also scored several times for the opposing side…that's an area he needs to improve on ;)

Soccer was certainly a hit!

Following the season the club had an awards night at the park. They played a little soccer and then had ice cream!

Excitedly waiting for his medal

Super proud of his 1st medal! He has learned so much during his 1st season. Tonight during the scrimmage he knocked several people down (in true Schenk fashion), but he proceeded to stop playing, help them up and checked to make sure they were ok! #goodsportsmanshipisthebestlesson #whoisthiskid #proudmama
