Happy Birthday Ryan

January 6th, 2012

Hard to believe, but Ryan is 8 years old today. Time sure does go by really fast, especially with an active child! Never a dull moment with our boy. Happy birthday Ryan, we love you!

Ryan’s first day of 2nd grade

September 7th, 2011

Hard to believe, but today Ryan begins 2nd grade. He was very excited to get back to school and see his friends. His teacher will be Mrs. Ota, and there are a few of his friends in the class. I am hoping he will have a good school year and make lots of new friends.

Today, we attended a reunion for Software Spectrum at Cheryl and Roy’s lake place. It was good to see so many former coworkers and friends, and it was a good time.

Basketball is fun

December 13th, 2010

Ryan’s third practice for basketball, and he allowed us to take a picture. It looks to me like he is enjoying basketball and being part of this team.

Ryan’s Basketball career is about to begin

October 15th, 2010

A few days ago, Dan overheard Ryan telling our neighbor that he might get to play basketball on a real court soon. Ryan has adamantly refused to have anything to do with organized sports, so we took this opportunity to get him involved. Dan came home and told me about what he overheard, and we quickly got him signed up for Upward Basketball before he could change his mind. When we told him we had signed him up, he was very upset and told us he was not going to play. We explained that this had cost us money, so he needed to play this season, and if he decides he doesn’t like it, he won’t have to play anymore. The first practice comes at the end of November, so we’ll see how it goes.
