Soccer, Eggs, and Playdates

Friday night soccer practice after a long week is tough. 
 
 
But Jack loves it.

 
His focus isn't on the field this year though.

 
Even in games, on Saturdays, he holds back.  It may just be a really bad allergy season, who knows.  He did so much better last Fall.

 
After the game today, we colored eggs....I know a weeks late or whatever, but still fun and still yummy!



Then we met Haydn at the park for a bike ride and lunch.

 
After lunch, we explored in the woods.





 
Then we rode home and cooled off with popsicles!

 
It's days like this when I so love the area we live in....soccer with friends, playdates in our hood.....enjoying life.

Skate Night

Guess who Jack found at the Antioch Skate Night?  Yup, Lexi.
 
 
She pretty much skated circles around him and the best part was that he didn't care and just kept chasing her.

 
And was so happy doing it!

 
Then they announced skate racing and guess who wanted to race?  I pointed out that he could barely skate and would most likely come in last, but the boy didn't care.


I am so proud of him and feel terrible for discouraging him.  Lesson learned!

Gifts and Girls

Jack picked out some cute gifts for his K teacher while we were in Amelia Island last week.  His school mascot is a gator :).
 
 
And I am so glad cuz Jack's teacher brought all the kids back a coin and bracelet from Costa Rica.
 
 
How sweet is that!?!  Speaking of sweet, this one non planner of a Mama, forgot we would arrive home from vacation late on the night before Easter.  Good thing Jack is only five and was just as happy to get a basket on goody's a day late and 50% off ;).

 
So that leaves girls.....where do I start???  Jack rides home on the bus next to a 1rst grader named Lexi who lives in our hood.  He kid of likes Lexi.  And today, he decided you wanted to find Lexi's house.  So.......we rode around the hood and the boy knocked on six stranger's doors!

 
This kid's got guts!  A ton more than me.

 
No luck finding his girl, so we played at the park.

 
We miss the beach, but it's good to be home.

Fort Building

Yup, playing in the woods before the bugs eat us up.
 



 
Beware of Jack!

Saying Goodbye to AI and Eggs

This morning we headed home...
 
 
It's always a sad goodbye to leave our vacation condo and the amazing family time we shared.
 
 
We hit one more bright spot by finding a local egg hunt that Jack was able to jump into.
 






 
So we had plenty of candy for the road, oh and did I mentioned we stopped at the bakery before we left too?!?

Greenway Ride

Another light drizzle this morning, took our ride to the greenway...
 
 
Jack was ready in his green jacket.

 
The greenway was so beautiful, actually green, instead of covered in gravel.








 
Oh and there was a snake crossing too!


 
Still, we had a great ride and beat the rain.


 
The kid was happy as can be.

 
And then we found a little Cuban place for lunch.

 
Grilled cheese plantain sandwich, yummy!


 
The wind and cooler weather could not keep the boy out of the water.

 
He didn't last long and was ready to warm up after only being out for a little while.

 
I found another cool jelly fish too.

 
So sad to be going home tomorrow.
