Kaitlee's Big Day




Saturday April 12th, 2008. It was a day of 1st's for my little princess. Here is the magnificent sequence. She had her 1st soccer game @ 11:00 am. She didn't quite get how it worked, but that will come with time. After following the crowd around, she got one chance at a goal but was denied by some other guy's stinking cute daughter. That Brat! She did however love it and enjoys going to practices also.

Next @ 12:56 pm we went golfing all by ourselves. A daddy daughter date if you will (and she made sure we got a cart so she could drive). I let her tee off on all 9 holes and then we picked up her ball and let her hit on to the green and finish out. She is really good and she even hit a few shots at the end about 40 yards or so. I will confess, I made up most of her scores because on some of the putts it was more like hockey than golf. But none the less, she played all 9 holes and still wanted more. It was great just to spend 1 on 1 time with her.

As if that wasn't enough for a little girl in one day, when we got home she wanted to take off her training wheels on her bike. So @ 3:32 pm I unbolted those comfort giving peices of plastic and set her FREE. I actully did nothing more than hold her up and say, "Peddle!" Off she went down the road and she looks like she's done it for years. Man, I am a great teacher huh!?

Fwew! What a day. It was pretty cool to see my Kaitlee growing up. I love you sweetie!!

Nice work guys!! She loves pink, she plays soccer and golf, and at three she is training wheel free. That is so cool!! She is getting so big, I can hardly believe it, and I also think it is totally awesome that you took her on a one on one date with dad. Those are so important! In addition I will say her swing looks pretty good Jared!!!
