Let me go ahead and spell out a perfect weekend.
Because that's what we had last weekend.
First, have your daughter go to her "bike rodeo" at pre-k a couple weeks before. Let the fact that other kids in her class don't have training wheels work it's magic on her and make her dream of taking those babies off.
Take them off, and help her a few times. Then watch her sheer determination take care of the rest...even after she falls down a bazillion times.On the sidelines, watch your 10-year-old daughter turn into a teenager before your eyes hanging out with her friend and "friend who is a boy." Oh wait, that's not a highlight! I hate that my baby girl is growing up so darn fast. But she sure is fun.
Then go watch your daughter play her heat out in a tennis tournament. Have the weather be completely perfect to compliment the enjoyment of tennis-watching.
Our friends the Tanners were in town for their spring break (it was SO fun to see you guys), and this other gal is from Elle's tennis class.
Of course we had to bring the bike along so Claire could keep up on her new skills...
Grace got to hang with her great little friends.
Then have your awesome brother come to town for a couple days (en route to moving with his whole family to New Zealand) and watch your son hang with some of the only "brothers" he will ever have (his uncles...they make me cry they are so good to him).
Head to the park on a gorgeous Sunday evening.
...along with the newest member of your family (the Dora doll your brother brought for your Dora-addicted daughter).
And to top it all off, go out to dinner with two different groups of best friends.
It just can't get much better than that...
...except maybe for conference weekend this coming weekend...can't wait.
