Today was Kendall’s checkup at the pediatrician. She hasn’t been in a few years, but since I took Delaney a month ago, we decided to get Kendall checked out. She’s fine, everything looking good, and she’s still tracking about 90th percentile for height and weight. The prediction is 5’9”, but we’ll see.

She also got a shot and a TB test, both of which she took without holding my hand or crying out.

Afterwards she, I, and Delaney ate some lunch and then went to play some mini-golf. We had wanted to hit Breckenridge yesterday, but Kendall went to the amusement park with neighbors, so we hung out instead. I want to do something with them each week, these last three weeks before school, so golf was today.

Not a great outing. They’re both competitive and each time Kendall hit a bad shot she would sulk, or get angry. Delaney was better, but he lost it in the last 3 or 4 holes and fell behind my score, pouting a bit at the end.

I tried to get them to have fun, just enjoy it, but they were angry that they couldn’t hit better. Kendall went inside to get a drink and cool off, and came out feeling better. Delaney calmed down and we played a second round (just the boys), didn’t keep score, and he seemed to enjoy that more.
