This Memory

Last night as a family we were playing memory. Charlotte was bouncing around the room, acting like she wasn't paying attention. While cleaning up for the win!

Nicki Should...

Nicki really should stop wear A-Line dresses. They are not flattering. Art by Isabella.

Charlotte has been loving puzzles. Every day after school she runs to the bin and starts a puzzle until dinner is ready.

Charlotte has been really enjoying her gymnastic class. Even more than ballet so far! Once a week she will learn to use her body more and more. As a parent I can really tell it has been helping her.

Our Little Helper

I was asked by a friend to help out at our local marathon. So I asked is Isabella could help as well. We both went and she had a blast! Isabella was helping hand out drinks to the runners as well as help out where ever possible. When she was handing out drinks, runners actually turned down other helpers to get a drink from her. She was a hit!

A healthy life

Recently the girls and I had to eat I the car because there is a very quick turn around to get to some of the kids activities from school. This day we were going to Irish Dance Class. There done with their meal and only had a small piece of candy left when I was eating my pear. They opted to finish my pear instead of eating the candy. However later they did eat the candy as well.

Master Piece.

Isabella decided yesterday that she wanted to draw a picture of our family. Here is the result. I think Nicki has decided not to where an A line dress ever again after this portrait.

On September 24, 2011 I did an iron distance triathlon event which consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run. The girls had such a good time cheering on daddy! While I was running the were helping the volunteers signaling runners to go a direction. And at the end the girls ran with me across the line!

Buckeye Town

Around Columbus you are submerged into the buckeye culture and the girls love it! We were heading for a quick stop at the grocery store and look what we bumped into.

A day at Easton

Some days at Easton they bring out remote control sail boats. For the girls it was pretty hard to control, however we gave it a valiant effort.

First Day

Today was a day of firsts. Isabella is in a new building starting kindergarten and Charlotte is in Pre-school.

Did you know according to wiki...

It isn't kinderGARDEN.

The first kindergarten in Hungary was founded on May 27, 1828 by the countess Theresa Brunszvik in her residence in the city of Buda under the name of Angyalkert (Angel garden).

Later, Friedrich Fröbel opened the first institute of preschool education outside Hungary, on June 28, 1840. Fröbel created the name Kindergarten (Children's Garden) for the Play and Activity Institute, which he had founded in 1837 in the village of Bad Blankenburg in Germany.

The first kindergarten in the United States was founded in Watertown, Wisconsin, by Margarethe Meyer-Schurz in 1856. It was based on Friedrich Fröbel, whom she was intrigued by in Germany. Her sister founded the first kindergarten in London, England.
