Time Flies

When you are running around all the time! We just never seem to have enough time in the day to get everything done. (Hence the lack of blogging!)

Let's see if I can catch you up - starting with Easter.

Easter was a great day! The Easter Bunny was good to the kids again this year. The kids had a blast at Grama's house having an egg hunt.

KC looked for eggs everywhere!

Simon and Alli hid the eggs again for KC.

Holidays are a chance for you to get together with family.
Oh, how we love our family!
(We miss our family who are far from us!)

The kids loving seeing their cousins!
We love Grama!

After such a fun day - KC fell asleep on Daddy.

More to come soon...

April Showers...

Have put a damper on the start of softball season!

The weather has been so dreary and rainy around here that all practices have been cancelled due to wet field conditions.
So we wait for the sun to dry out the softball fields.
And wait...

Meanwhile, Madison picked up her uniform from her coach.

Madison has graduated to level 5/6 now. The levels are divided by grades. (Level 5/6 is grades 5-6, etc.) She was drafted to Team 53 - The Lady Knights. She has a new coach this year since Bob is still coaching level 3/4 (Allison's grade). Bob coached Madison's team at the 3/4 level for the last 2 years.

Now that Allison is in 3rd grade, Bob will coach her softball team. Allison's team is Team 33 - The Wildcats.

Since Allison is such a peanut, she was too small for the uniforms that were ordered for the girls. The league had to special order a couple uniforms for the smaller players. Hopefully Allison will have hers soon. I will be sure to add Alli's pictures when she gets her uniform.

Opening Day is April 20th!

Fun fun fun!

(Kasey even got in on the action and was trying on batting helmets.)

(Bob says she looks like Dark Helmet!)

Weekend Fun

This past weekend was a lot of fun! The brilliant PTO board wanted to do something fun for our wonderful and supportive families. So we rented Aspen Ice for a private Barley Sheaf School Ice Skating Event. We had about 200 kids and parents join us on the ice. It was a blast!

Simon on the ice. Not too bad for only his second time on the ice!

Allison was a natural (just like her daddy!)

Madison (middle) and her friend, Lauren, (left) joined us as well. They are Barley Sheaf graduates now - they are big 5th graders.

And of course - our mascot, Mr. Bear, didn't disappoint!!!

(That would be Mr. "Bob" Bear!)
Poor Bob - he always gets stuck in the bear costume.

After skating, we warmed up at the Hibachi house!

P.S. - No, we didn't put Kasey on skates. (So where did that helmet head hair come from???) Instead, Kasey dragged her grandma all over the rink!
