Who'd a thunk it

Not us. Not after the first practice. We were just out to watch little ones play baseball and cheer them on and be happy when one of them gits a hit, especially ours. Then we won, and won a few more, and half way mark and no loses, and then the end of the season and STILL no loses?!?!?! Who woulda thought that our team would win the championship game. I'm going to give huge props to the coaches. These are kind of coaches I would want in every sport every year. They were fabulous! All about the kids and making sure they are having fun and giving them support and encouragement. Congratulations Pirates!

Poor Maggie

Sometimes, Maggie becomes a source of entertainment for Cody and the kids. I guess they thought she needed to wear clothes. I'm pretty sure she would disagree, given the fight she put up when Cody was trying to get the clothes on and off her. Although Hannah pointed out that she really should be wearing girls clothes instead of a boy's. Good point, but she wasn't OK with sharing her wardrobe with Maggie.

18 days

We have 18 days left! Someone tell me why I let soooo many things pile up on the to-do list and now I HAVE to get them all done NOW? I'm super excited about getting married. No nerves at all on that front, the nerves are coming from making sure I get everything done. Today and tomorrow are jam packed with things to get done. We are off and running! It's a good thing I get to use Hannah's surgery as the reason we haven't been swimming. I timed that one perfectly. I don't think the kids would be OK with not having gone to the pool just because mama has lots of wedding stuff to do. :)

End of the year carnival

For the last 5 years, at the end of the school year we head to the preschool carnival. This year's was the last one. We have absolutely loved this school. Each year the kids have had amazing teachers and the director is awesome. I'm sad to be leaving this behind, but also happy that the kids will be in the same school now!

The school puts on a fabulous carnival! They look forward to it and always have a blast. We worked the basketball game for the first hour. Then the clouds opened up and it poured. They didn't care. It was warm out so they just played in the rain.

The school brought these amazing face paint ladies in. I've never seen face paint like this and they were so fast! Hannah didn't care what she had, she just asked that she not have a tiara. And Eli asked to be a pirate.

Pretty good, huh? Less then 5 minutes per kid. This was the last thing we did. The sky was threatening to let loose again and they wanted to make sure Cody saw their faces. We grabbed our pizza and ran! They waited up until 9:30 just so they could show off before we had to wipe it off for bed.

Finger Weaving

Nawny taught Hannah how to finger weave on Monday. She's been making all kinds of things for everybody! Maggie seems to get most of the gifts. Her and I have been making earrings, bracelets, headbands, and collars. Now she has no more loops, so we must take a trip to Michael's or Hobby Lobby and get some more. That's fine, I love those stores and Maggie loves her new collars :)
