Baseball, Lacrosse and the Last Day of School....finally!


Well, it has been a busy couple of days....last weekend the boys had 4 lacrosse games and 7 baseball games not to mention a crazy week of field day, field trips, church and the last day of school.

Here is a little recap of lacrosse, Holden played with his team on Saturday and then played in a tournament with a group of kids from all three teams.  The last game was pretty exciting with lots of contact and several goals.  The Warriors end their season with a WIN.


After the game, Holden was suppose to play baseball but with the overnight rains, the games were delayed 4 hours! Which meant his first game would not even start until after 7!

 

With our extra time, I took the boys to the pool for a little fun in the sun.

 

We rushed home to change after the pool to make it to the tournament an hour away.

Sunday, was another day of divide and conquer.  I had Rylan and we were headed in the opposite direction for baseball.

 

Rylan and his team played great and ended up winning the Championship game!!!  It was a very exciting day for these Thundercats!


Our last week of school was filled with field trips, field day, church and lots of other things in between but somehow we survived and made it to the last day of school!  I can not believe these two are going to be in 6th and 3rd grade in the Fall!

 

We ended our last day of school at the pool with friends and now we are ready to begin summer break!

Memorial Day Weekend


Hard to believe it is Memorial Day weekend already. Well, maybe it is because we are still in jean and jackets around here....anyways.  Leyton's last day of Preschool was on Friday and they had a park day with the class.  (If you are wondering, yes, it was only 50 degrees on Thursday/Friday! )


Leyton's teachers were great this year and we will miss them terribly!


Saturday, Holden and Kevin headed to Iowa for a baseball tournament at the Field of Dream, yes, as in the movie Field of Dreams.


I stayed back with Rylan and Leyton.  Saturday I took the boys to the Zoo.  We saw all of their favorite animals before it started to get crowded.

 

After the zoo the boys wanted to play at the house so that is what we did, we went to the park and just played.  Sunday, Rylan had a lacrosse game.  Rylan has really taken to lacrosse and has declared it his favorite sport.  He is definitely not scared to get in there and get the ball.  Rylan ended up scoring 7 of his teams 13 points and two of the final points in the last minute of the game that ended with his team winning 13-11!

 

It was lots of fun to watch him play.  Next choice for the boys, they wanted to go to the pool....thankfully, our pool is heated!  We stayed at the pool most of the afternoon before calling it a day.

 

Monday, Kevin and Holden returned and we rode bikes, played Home Run Derby, went to the park, and grilled out.  A perfect ending to a busy weekend.  We did not forget to remember why we celebrate Memorial Day.


"Greater love has no one than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends." John 15:13

Happy Memorial Day!
