What we've been up to...

{Day with Thomas - from a few weeks ago}

So I mentioned Poppy's boy friend last week.  This is the funniest thing.  All of a sudden, out of no where, she has been talking non-stop about her friend from school, Ty.  Luckily, he lives right around the block from us, so we've been meeting up for quite a few playdates lately.  It is sooo funny to see how differently Poppy acts around him!  They really are so cute together!

..................

And Poppy started playing soccer last month.  I am shocked by how much she loves it!  Marc usually takes her, but last week I was able to go with them and snap a few pics.  I was impressed by how determined she was and she has already made a few goals during the little games they play.


....................

 Then there's this little pork chop.  Man, this kid can eat!  But he will only eat the exact same thing I am eating!  He doesn't want anything to do with baby food or any plain steamed veggies.  His favorites are coconut curry chicken with peas and baked sweet potato fries w/ cayenne pepper on them!  Oh, and rice!  Between him and Poppy, we go through about 5lbs. of rice a week!


.......................

 We've been working on our garden lately and Poppy has been quite the helper.



In addition to a few flowers, this year we planted tons of lettuces, tomatoes, green beans and sugar snap peas.  And a few carrots.  We'll see how they do!  Poppy is pretty excited to see the fruits of her labors!

And on the running front - I just completed my first week and I'm still loving it!  Yay for exercise!

Wow - you have been up to a LOT!!! I love seeing the look on Poppy's face at soccer. Very intense.

And a boy friend already?! ;-)

These are some of my favorite pictures EVER of your kids!!! I love how crazy-long Poppy's hair is, and the one of Sam stuffing his face with rice is a total hoot.
We've been thinking about enrolling Olive in soccer instead of dance class for a while b/c she's such a big gross-motor girl. How long is Poppy taking it for?
