The life of a Robertson is very busy and hectic these days.... for all 4 of us. It seems like we always have something going on, and the thing is we don't even know what to cut out. We love it all.
Nick is playing in 2 cover bands still. His main cover band Oreo Meatwagon plays more often and they are so fun to watch. His other band BS and the Liars plays a few times a year, but also so fun to watch. I can't deny the fact this guy is GOOD. He is just so so good! He is modest and quiet about his playing abilities, but man I beam with pride every time I get to watch him rock out. He got a new acoustic guitar for his birthday this year from his family and me and he has been picking it up each night and playing. I'm so happy for him!
I'm not in any cover bands, but do enjoy being part of the Worship team (with Nick) at our church. We sing and play together (me on keys, him on guitar) a couple times a month. It's so fun to look over and see him on stage with me. I'm hoping he feels the same way. ha.
Birk is in basketball and also started baseball. It's a big year for baseball for him. He tried out last August for Midwest Pride. A club ball team in Ankeny. And guess what? He MADE IT! This kid is a good ball player. He loves to tell people he is 'a lefty' batter! I'm assuming his love of all things sports and mostly baseball comes from his father who picked up a ball and played catch with this kid from the minute he knew what one was. I know I may regret saying this, but I'm so excited to watch him play at this level... and as often as he gets too.
Addy is a dancing/singing fool. She is in her 2nd year of dance and loving it. She shakes her groove thing anytime I turn on the music. We tried to add a Hip-Hop class this year, but she wasn't having it. The girls in the class were all much older than her and so we decided to bow out and try again next year.
It's so strange to say that its 2017. How could we have gone through another whole year? 7th birthday, end of 1st grade, beginning of 2nd grade, a trip to Cabo with great friends and family, Christmas and New Years. We're excited to see what 2017 brings us. On deck so far is; a week in the Dells for Spring Break, lots and lots of baseball, dance parties, neighborhood bon fires, races for me with my favorite running partner and hopefully a Thanksgiving trip to Disney!
