Soccer Shark

Logan’s soccer team is appopriately named after the single great white player- Logan, the shark.  Proud to play for both is own team and the opposing team, Logan led his team to another annihilation.

Leading

Left with a lot more fuel to burn off Logan and his buddy Mason challenged themselves to the Temescal Canyon Waterfall which was a challenging four-mile hike along a seasonally thin creek, rocky switch backs, and ample tree cover.  Despite the recent rain there wasn’t much of a waterfall but that didn’t stop the boys from jumping into the creek once they reached the top.  Having not hiked this trail since Logan was in a hiker I was really impressed that he completed the hike.  It was really special to listen to his conversation with Mason as it ranged from their little sisters’ napping patterns, Halloween costumes, Star Wars, favorite ice creme flavors, “what vegetable would you be?”, and tales about their strength, muscles and bravery.  They really are the coolest and cutest four-year olds in town.

What’s a kid to do- jump in of course.
