It’s official. I’ve got a middle schooler and a kindergartner. When we moved to Kentucky, Lily was just 17 months old and Rydan was only 7 years old.

Now look at them!


Rydan graduated from elementary school last Thursday, and school ended on Friday with pizza and a movie.

For Rydan, his summer will be quite busy. He’ll continue with Taekwondo classes, and is also adding a special lacrosse summer clinic to help prepare him for middle school tryouts. There’s also a week-long camp at the end of June that he’ll attend for the third year in a row. In just a few days, he’ll be going on vacation with a friend, and then on our own family vacation in July. And of course, he’s got a birthday to look forward to as well.

As for Lily, she is very much looking forward to Kindergarten. We picked up her “Countdown To Kindergarten” shirt a few weeks ago, so she has an entire summer calendar filled with various Countdown To Kindergarten events. In a few weeks, she is starting a new dance class at a place that holds recitals, so I’m really excited to see how she likes it. Like Rydan, she is also counting down to her summer birthday, and she’s very anxious to go to the beach in July.


Without a doubt, we’ll have lots of new memories to share over the summer, so be sure to check back every Monday for updates!
