to the bay!

I'm so thankful we were able to sneak away a few days in the Bay! Yes, the drive is not my favorite but we did it - and Calli does not like San Francisco - she LOVES San Francisco (her words exactly).

We hit the SF Zoo, California Academy of Sciences, and the Golden Gate Bridge. Calli and Macy went down Lombard street with Tim and I since we were off Siri's directions anyway. Calli said she was praying we wouldn't die. I think it made an impression on her.

And the kids were nice and smiled for all most of my pictures!
I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!

We are not the most athletic group on the planet but we are trying new things and evolving into a pretty active group. For Calli there was ballet - but the classes were too "boring".


And then there was swimming. She demolished the competition for a while.

 

And then it was boring, so I signed her up for a hard class and...


So then we added in soccer.
Camps with brother were fine but the fall season... She quit.


And running is hit and miss; mainly she's into the stretching - in the middle of the run.


But our most recent breakthrough came when I saw a Hello Kitty tennis racquet! And now as she says, ' she has found her sport'. I have educated myself with 90 minutes of YouTube instruction and am currently her coach. She's a stud and having fun!

Meanwhile the Twins (as we call them now) are going to volleyball classes. Macy likes serving and Grant is all about SPIKING! He really packs a punch!


Grant also plays U12 soccer  - even though he's 10. He likes mid-field the best...I mean in soccer. What he likes the best in life is Clash Royale on the iPad.
