Summer

Dear Blake,
This summer you started going to swim lessons at the Bear Paddle swim school. You have gone twice now and are doing so great! You went the first time and were very nervous and didn’t want to go in. By the second time you went, you didn’t even cry and did everything the teacher told you and I wouldn’t be surprised if you passed your first level soon! We also signed you up for T-ball again this year. You play for a team this year at the New Lenox park district called the River Bandits. You will be having your first game on Thursday!
I’m just so happy to be able to spend this entire summer with you and Owen. I’m trying to make everyday fun try to do something new and exciting with you and Owen. So far we have been to Great America, T-ball, swim lessons, the zoo, touch a truck, splash pad, swimming, etc.

I love you and we will continue to have a great summer!
Love,
Mama

Dear Blake,

You are 4 years old!  I can’t believe you turned 4.  You wanted to have a garbage truck party so we had that!  You had a garbage truck cake and garbage truck decorations and it was at the bowling alley.  You had a lot of fun bowling and then eating and cake and opening presents, which included a lot of garbage truck presents!  You even got a real bowling pin which everyone signed for you!  I still can’t believe you are 4!

Love,

Mama
