I have been wanting to go to Monticello for years and we finally made it down to Charlottesville today. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time with our neighbors. We stayed longer than we thought we would and ate dinner at a great place in downtown Charlottesville.  We even got to see the UVA women's lacrosse team play Boston College where we ran into some of Emmy's Pride teammates!
It was a great day!

Mt. Vernon Spring Break

We didn't go anywhere for Spring Break this year and decided to get to the local sites that we never have a chance to see during the school year. We brought the neighbors kids with us and had a super time - although people thought that I had 6 kids and everyone was giving us crazy looks!
We saw the house and the grounds and the baby lambs - everyone's favorite part!!

Aoife in Goal

 Aoife had her first Arlington Lacrosse game of the season today. She tried out for the 3/4 A team and made it - one of only 3 3rd graders!  So proud of her for being so tough and gutsy AND then playing in goal for the very first game. They won and she played great!!

March Snowstorm

 It snowed today!  It was the first and only time we got snow this winter - probably because it's the first time that I made SURE that everyone had snowpants and boots well before the start of the season. Nothing like a little insurance to make sure we get no snow!!
Declan was really excited to use the "snowboard" that he got for Christmas - we have the perfect little hill for it!

Aidan's basketball team

 Aidan's team had quite a mixed season this year. They made it through the first game of the playoffs but sadly lost today. Already looking forward to next season!!

Aidan's Wrestling Meet

 Aidan decided to try wrestling this year and he joined the team at school. He seemed to really like it and made it to the county meet at the end of the season. It's definitely hard to watch as a mother - I thought I was used to it from football but this is WAY more violent!
