Best of the Rest (of Boston)

We had a great 4th of July weekend in Boston, but spent more of the second half of the trip indoors as the heat truly set in and a rainy evening cooled and wet things down.

On to First Grade

What a school year it’s been. Thanks to the guidance of Ms. Gutowski and Ms. Burns, Colin has completed Kindergarten. He celebrated with a little graduation ceremony by the Extended Day program, and some fun extra treats to round out the school year!

Fiesta 5K 2019

Another year, another Fiesta 5K in support of ALS research! Team Big Walt and Mike showed up in full force to remember and honor 3 great men, once again finishing in the top 10 of fundraisers. While the commentary wasn’t as interesting as last year, Colin’s determination was just as strong – and he shaved…

Hamming it up on Stage

Colin’s first school play – the Three Piggy Opera – was a 25-minute spectacle full of laughs, cries (from the laughing) and 21 Kindergarteners singing and dancing their hearts out. Colin represented the role of Piggy #1 with true commitment. A star is born…

Eggs on Eggs on Eggs

For the fifth year in a row, the Kohrs and Tuckers assembled for some egg dyeing chaos. Luckily, it was a nice day so they could burn a little energy outside beforehand, but it was still quite the crazy adventure nonetheless!

Another Season to Play Ball!

Compared with last year, it was a gorgeous opening day for Arlington Little League as the Mets took on the Cardinals. Colin had three at bats with some solid hits, and played the field well. Here’s to a great season!

Monster Jam!

Always up for a new adventure, the family headed to Monster Jam to watch some trucks do loud and amazing tricks. There were tricks, crashes, wipe outs and even a fire to entertain for an afternoon!

Snow!

While this winter has been pretty tough with school delays and closures, some moments of fun on a snow day can negate some of that inconvenience! Here were some highlights from our snow day in January, when we took full advantage of our driveway as a sledding hill.

It’s Turkey Day!

It was our second time hosting Thanksgiving, and we seem to be hitting our stride. We were so prepared that our kitchen sink decided to clog Wednesday night just to keep things interesting (it was fixed Friday). Nevertheless, everyone enjoyed some quality time and good food around the table. Until next year! And to kick-off…
