I don't know how calling my sons my "bros" made it into my personal lexicon, but somehow it did, and I'm just going to go with it. 😄
John did a ninja competition at his ninja gym and tied for third place with one of his teammates. He still does ninja and he enjoys it, but wrestling has definitely become his priority. One of the good things about ninja is that you can do it your whole life--there's an adult division for competitions. Wrestling, not so much, so he's decided to prioritize wrestling during his high school and college years.
After the competition, the boys and I went to the movies to see the new Spiderman movie. The theater had been refurbished during Covid and now had cushy recliner seats with table trays. It was great to go to the movies together again for the first time since Covid hit! And the movie was good too; Sam especially loved it.
After one of John's wrestling meets, Sam and I went out for ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery. I may have used that as incentive to get him to go to the meet. 😆
Could Sam be a future employee of Cold Stone, perhaps? He wouldn't mind that!
And finally, here we are at his annual physical.
These appointments are always a little nostalgic for me because they never fail to remind me of when the boys would go in for their check-ups as babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and so on. They keep growing, and that's a good thing, but it's also a sentimental thing for their mother!
