We made it a month. One whole month down, and only eight to go. I keep thinking it's as if we are a third of the way through a regular 12-monther. And if this were a VERY ridiculously long RLBT (a 15-monther), we'd be almost halfway through. Wild to think about the fact that last time around, when I had eight months to go, I had already endured seven whole months.
Here's what we've been up to.
Playing with the first Kiwi Crate from Papa. The theme of our first kit was "playful pets." The girls made pom pom pets and then constructed mini playgrounds that were totally awesome. I should probably do a whole blog post on the coolness of this company, but we'll save that for another day (ha ha ha ha).
Sunday night dinners out--one of my favorite rituals of a RLBT. This time around they began with our group's Last Dad Standing nobly corralling ten kids while the mommies talked. (He is now on a RLBT with the other dads.)
St. Patrick's Day Weekend means the greening of the fountain in Forsythe Park. I love Savannah this time of year.
Colorful camo thanks to face painting kits from Aunt Covie and Uncle Matt.
Come to school dressed as your favorite character from a book. Here's Mary Ingalls.
Belt promotion! From yellow to camo and up to Jr. Black Belt Club.
Ready for big sister's parade.
Takin' it to the streets during karate.
Ready for the "Tasting of the Green" at school.
More Kiwi Crate fun. This time the theme was "Secret Agents." They made disguises. They made periscopes to peer around corners. They armed themselves with secret journals, code names, "invisible" ink (visible only under mini black lights, provided!), and went exploring.
Making treats for Papa.
Enjoying the company of good friends.
