So where do I begin….
5 ½ as of YESTERDAY! He’s Mister Independent these days. His shyness is still there but it’s not nearly what it once was. He’s really into sports & video games. He’s still an amazing big brother to Mason. Such a good kid!
2 years 2 months. He’s our wild one. He’s got more energy than you can imagine! I always call him my "monster" but he’s one lovable monster! But man is he mischievous! He too is really into sports – most recently golf and baseball. Watch out Tiger and Jeter!
We made it through May, which was an insane month of events – Sunday soccer started for Max, Ray and I went to the Red Sox/Yankees game, birthday parties, crazy work schedules and most recently Ray & I went to Hartford for two Dave Matthews concerts (AMAZING!) and while we were there the boys headed up North with Ray’s parents to the Belgrade Lake area for the long weekend! We joined them at lunchtime on Sunday and spent the rest of the weekend enjoying the beautiful weather!
What’s ahead …
Max is going in on Wednesday to meet with a pediatric surgeon about a condition that he has on his poor wee-wee (https://health.google.com/health/ref/Hydrocele) which we will find out if he need to go in for surgery. They say it’s very common and nothing to worry about - its quick day surgery and he’ll be back to him old self within 24 hours. But they will have to put him under (that’s what scares me most!)
Mason is getting his hearing tested next week. As many of you know he’s slightly delayed with his speech and receives services and they are thinking that he may have some built up fluid behind his ears that’s causing him to hear things a bit muffled. So we’ll see about that!
Max goes to Kindergarten Screening next Wednesday!!! Exciting! He’s SO READY!
At the end of the month Max will go to Summer rec for the full 8 weeks which he’s ecstatic about! He cannot wait! I wish I could go to rec! They go on two field trips a week! Lucky! The same day Max starts Rec Mason will be headed to a new childcare center. It’s more center-based and he will be in a classroom of 8 peers his own age and two adults so I think we’ll see his speech improve quite a bit!
Next weekend we head back to Boston. Ray’s going to his brother, Steven’s bachelor party weekend celebration and the kids and I are off to the Lozano’s! Crystal and I have a fun weekend planned for the kids – zoo during the day and outdoor projection movie in the backyard and popcorn at night! FUN!!
The weekend after that is Ray’s 5th annual (4th maybe?) Trek Across Maine! 180+ miles of biking over 3 days. Sunday River to Rockland. The boys and I will be at the finish line to greet him since it’s Father’s Day.
I am doing my very first (and maybe last) Sprint Triathlon in August! Today is DAY 1 of training! It’s on the treadmill I go tonight to see how my leg holds up (soccer injury 5 weeks ago – long story but it was a ruptured tendon and I wouldn’t wish that kind of pain on my worst enemy…but it’s pretty much healed so hopefully the training will go smoothly!)
It’s an insanely busy summer – camping at Sebago, 5 days out in Colorado for Steven and Erin’s wedding and then A WEEK in paradise – BEAR ISLAND on Sebago Lake! H-E-A-V-E-N!
So that’s the rundown and latest and greatest! More to come! (hopefully!)
