Still Good Buds!

These two met at age 3, they've been in the same class ever since and remain good buddies.

Itsy Bitsy Spider

Itsy Bitsy Spider has been one of B's favorite songs since he was very small.  When I was teaching, I would sign the songs with my kids and this is one I remember most of the signs to.  The boys have caught on, even B.

Another Swim Buy a Share

 Yesterday another friend and I hosted a buy a share at VV for LTs age group.  We swam and had snacks and pizza.  
A and another sibling got to come as well.

Bear Peak

 Yesterday, LT, a friend of mine and her son set out to do Bear Peak.  I was honestly questioning the reviews that this was "steep, challenging, long" etc.  It was in Boulder after all, how hard could it be?  We left Denver at 7 and returned at 4 PM.  We took few breaks despite the incredibly hot weather and the challenging terrain.  It was long, hot, beautiful, steep, challenging and a huge accomplishment for these two boys and for us!

Yard is Underway

 When we signed a contract to have our yard redone in March, they said they would start June 5.  Neither Brian nor I really believed it would start on time.  Friday June 2nd, they came and surveyed the yard and said they had to finish a few things on the 5th at another project and would start June 6.  And they did!  They demo'd the yard quickly.  It has been so fascinating to watch how its all done.   Brian and I are in awe by their tireless efforts for hours upon hours in the sweltering heat.  Its truly incredible.  All 3 kids spend lots of time pinned to the windows watching the work.

Buy a Share

 The boys school has a fundraising auction each year where each family has to donate something to be sold.  This year we donated two "buy a shares".  Basically you donate a party and then sell each individual party slot to a child (or adult if its an adult one) and then that child (or adult) can go to the party.  For A's class, a friend and I donated a 2 hour 1st grade boy's swim party.  6 little guys bought it at the auction and so yesterday we held the party.
 They swam a little, played a little on the playground and then ate some pizza.  I also donated a 3,4, 5 swim party for LTs class which is next week.

Zoo with Grandma, Aunt Jayne and Uncle Peter

 My mom's sister and her husband are in town visiting this week.  Today they took B to the zoo while I took the big guys to swim practice, and then dropped off at camp.  They sent me all these cute pictures.

Half Marathon

 A few weeks ago I ran the Colfax half marathon.  The day prior was rainy and snowy and I wasn't sure I was going to muster the energy to run the race alone.  But I woke up and it was sunny and warm and I decided to run it.  And I got a PR!  They send these pictures out with free downloads so I thought I would put them here.  The course is so fun, you run through the zoo, down through Park Hill to Aurora, through the first fire station in Aurora, a few miles on Colfax (not a highlight, or even remotely decent part of Colfax), back to Park Hill and ends in City Park.  



Trashy Town

One of our all time favorite books, "Trashy Town" has made an appearance again.  B is obsessed with it and his brothers are more than happy to read it to him.

Painting

 The other two had a chance to paint their stumps this past week.  Now we're ready for the work on the yard to get started so we can use them.

Posing before a graduation party

 B got a little dressed up to go to a graduation party this weekend, but the cutest part was him getting himself into the rocking chair and posing for pictures before.

Mt Galbraith

LT got pretty excited about 14ers this year.  So much that he even wrote his magazine article about the 10 most popular.  As we talked about them and learned about them, it became apparent that he might want to do one this summer.  We have a date, with some friends to do one.  In order to make it a bit more successful we decided we should "train".  Yesterday, my dad and I took him to Mt. Galbraith (4.9 mile, moderately challenging hike).  He did so well, no complaints, pretty quick pace and we even had time on the way home to eat ice cream (a tradition after hikes in the Imig home).

Painting

 When we had our huge tree removed, we asked them to leave 3 stump disks, one for each kid to paint and put in our new side yard.  Baby B got a start on his today.

Best I could do

 The big boys have American Ninja Warrior in the Stanley Marketplace.  We've made a routine of going to class, going out to dinner and then (sometimes) getting ice cream at Sweet Cow.  Its not a cheap night, but it sure is fun. 
Sweet Cow has these little bouncy cows that they love playing on.
