July 2014 Edition of Letters to our Children

Dear Nicky, Will and Matthew,

This month started off with the 4th of July holiday.  We had a great time watching the parade as this year Matthew was really interested in it and especially loved seeing all of the big fire engines and other trucks.

We also went to Vail and visited Uncle Les and Molly as they refereed lacrosse games at the Vail Shoot Out.  It was a great experience for Will to watch some real games and learn from Les and Molly who know so much about the game. There was also a splash park at near the fields and Matthew had a blast getting wet!

Will was invited to attend the Lacrosse World Cup in Denver with my Aunt Nancy, Uncle Les, Zach, Tara and Molly.  You had a great time watching games and are so very excited about playing lacrosse and improving.

Then mid month Dad and I took a long weekend and I met him up in Canada for the weekend.  We visited the town of Victoria on Vancouver Island and had a great time together while you all got to hang out with Grandma, Grandpa and Ali.

At the end of the month, Chicago Amy and her family visited us for a few days.  Its was really fun to be able to spend some quality time with Amy, Jason, Ali and Sam!  The weather was pretty ugly the whole time they were in town so we didn’t do much outside, but you went bowling, watched movies and played cards.

A few of Matthew’s favorite things this month:

“Bless you me.” – post sneezing

“I want to make good choices!” – while crying in time-out

“Why are you eating trees Mommy?” – in reference to my broccoli salad

You’ve also mastered winking….well, the 2 eyed wink.  😉

Lots of love!  Big hugs and kisses.  Mom
