Hailey did a 3-day cheerleading clinic at a local high school a few weeks back, and their big hurrah was to cheer at a varsity basketball game. She was oddly timid at the start of the first practice (sometimes I forget how much my introvert dislikes loud noises, crowds, and chaos), but she ended up loving the whole experience. And it was so fun to do it with so many of her friends – from school, church, and all over! #yvhs #warriors

Logan and I happened upon the coolest park in Montclair this morning. It had a bank, stage coach, 2 big playgrounds, an amphitheater with a swamped stage, a pond, ducks and a turtle, a half pipe, and lots to explore. Yay for sunshine and 70 degrees in January!

It’s that time again… Hailey has your Girl Scout cookies! Most boxes are $5, except S’mores and Toffe-tastic which are $6. Let me know your order and the cutest little Daisy will deliver them with a smile. #youknowyouwantsome

It was such a beautiful day for a walk around the reservoir! Too bad we never got that walk… Hailey torpedo-ed down the first hill on a scooter sans helmet and crashed pretty hard. It appears she walked away without a concussion, thankfully, but her backside is all scraped up and it killed her spirit for a bit. So we skipped the walk and went to the park instead, soaking up the sunshine all the same.
