Prepping for Summer

We are getting ready for summer. Domi finished school at OLOJ last week and has his last speech therapy session on Monday, he also finished his soccer season on Saturday. We hosted a team party on Saturday at La Mirada park and had a super fun time with cake, pizza and a soccer ball pinata. We are taking the summer off from outdoor sports, but Domi will continue his weekly swim lessons at AquaSafe, and will take T-ball, basketball and soccer lessons at the Itty Bitty Ball program at our YMCA. He will also be going to Spanish immersion camp at the International School of Arizona. We are excited because his 3 week session will focus on Central America including Guatemala, and he will be instructed exclusively in Spanish! It seems like a great school and we are anxious because camp runs Monday through Friday. He is only used to school Tuesday and Thursday. In the fall, he will attend OLOJ 3 days a week - he is growing up so fast!

I will be working in San Diego most of the summer so we will spend several long weekends there, and in August we are heading to Coldwater, MI for a family reunion on Dan's side of the family. We have already had a lot of company, but expect more this summer. It will be a fun and busy season for us, we are ready!

Spring, Glorious Spring!

We have had a lot of company recently. My sister Monica and her family (from CO) came for a visit in early April, then Dan's brother Sean (from MO) came to visit with his family over Easter, and finally Dan's uncle and his wife (from NC) visited with us last evening. In between all the company we hosted Easter brunch for 19 people and went on vacation to San Diego. We enjoyed Legoland, Sea World, the Zoo and beach. Domi had never been seen the ocean before and he loved running from the waves on the shore. We are having fun as always and looking forward to summer!

Domi is also growing A LOT! As of April 5 (3 yo check-up), he was 36 3/4" tall (30th percentile) and 31.6 pounds (45th percentile). We have the dark and handsome parts nailed, just working on the "tall" part! ;) Domi is still taking weekly swim lessons, plays soccer, goes to pre-school and also has speech therapy. Over the summer he will swim and we are looking at a Spanish immersion camp at the International School in July. He is an angel and such a joy for us - we are blessed!
