Fall Antics

On October 16th, we went to the Soccer Shots Fun Fest! Once a week, a Soccer Shots coach comes to Tender Years and teaches Thea and her friends basic soccer skills and relates them to lessons in character building and leadership. This Fun Fest is the program’s annual festival for the kids in their programs and their families.¬†The bounce houses were amazing, and there was¬†cookie decorating. Thea said she was “decorating a cookie for daddy.”

Evidently face painting is no longer a thing. Now it’s hand painting.

Maybe Finn will be interested in Soccer Shots too. Maybe this Winter or next Spring. I think he has to turn two first.

The Irish Christmas cake requires weekly whiskey feedings, each week betweeen now and Chistmas Eve.

The final day of Aqua Tots II at the YMCA! He’s too young to move up to Pike just yet, but he’s gained a lot of confidence in the water during the last eight weeks!

Thea and her “report card” from Miss Veronica’s Pike class, saying her confidence has grown a lot and she has mastered the skills to move up to the next level of swim classes! She’s moving up to Eel!

The next day, back at the Y: This is the Y’s annual Floating Pumpkin Patch. Each child rolls a pumpkin of their choice to the side of the pool…
