I love my job. They are so amazingly flexible to my working mom status. They also present me with great opportunities to spread my wings. I stopped traveling for the better part of the last 10 months while having Vivian and then having a newborn at home and all that comes with it (read: nursing and pumping). While I miss almost nothing, I did have to miss Walt’s first Field Day. Sad as it was, I’m not the only one with a flexible job 🙂 Chris is right there with me at every school event, teacher conference, and volunteer opportunity. In fact, he was Walt’s regular lunch buddy for much of the fall semester! I knew I’d get a good recap of the day from Chris. Lucky for the parents, the 4th and 5th graders help run the Kinder Field Day, so he truly just got to be a spectator.

Chris said Walt’s teacher told him that Walt is so mature. This I believe. Walt is a helper and is so good at helping others (adults and other kids alike). He has such a kind heart. Even though he loves sports beyond belief, he is not so competitive that he doesn’t care about the other kids. In fact, Chris said a kid got kicked in the face during Capture the Flag and Walt was the only one to go check on him. I love this sweet boy!
And finally, enjoy this hilarious potato sack race video:

he just has the sweetest face. I'm right there with you about work. I'm turning down a 1 day trip just because the thought of being gone/pumping/storing is just too much! 5 more months…
