We had a great time celebrating Mason’s 9th birthday. He is a fun-loving, book-reading, super swimming, Star Wars fan and we are so thankful to be his parents. For his actual birthday he chose Chuck e Cheese and Olive Garden and then later shared some birthday fun with his friends at Sky Zone.
Reid has really taken off this year in flag football. He found his legs and knows how to run hard. We’ve been watching him since he was 3 yrs old, and it’s always a joy to see him learn and adapt.
Mason was just on fire during this meet in Mount Pleasant. It was fun to see him really take off and beat every one of his times except in breast stroke.
Since Mason is 8, he only has to race in 25yd heats. However, when he turns 9, he has to do 50yd heats. So, we had him compete with a 50yd and he made us proud.
It was a sad time that brought the Hoggatt family together, but happiness is always right around the corner with our cute little nephew, Dallas. When it’s time for “Wheels on the Bus” he likes it best when everyone participates. We love you Grandma Hoggatt, and your great grandson wishes you off to heaven with joy and laughter.
Reid definitely loves running and scoring goals for ice cream :). This was a hard-won goal, but he stuck with it and lobbed it in.
We had a great day at Middleton Plantation. We watched a carny perform, potter create vases, blacksmith crafting, milked a cow, and a lot more. We all had a great time stepping back to simpler times.
In each graduation two medals are awarded for exceptional performance. Reid did a great job during our first degree purple belt graduation to receive one.
The boys finished their season strong and even got to kick a Riverdogs game off for JCC (Jewish Community Center) swim team. We’re very proud of their accomplishments and just sticking with it.
Both Mason and Reid decided to swim for a summer team and here is a video highlighting their accomplishments-first place finishes! We told them they could have ice cream for a first place…that might have helped a little.
