Baseball season opener {Holden}

Holden's baseball season opener was this weekend.  Since Kevin is one of the assistant coaches I have not been to many of the practices so this was really the first time of me seeing his team all together.  They are a cute little bunch.

On the field, Holden played 1st, 3rd and even pitched a little.  It is completely adorable seeing these little guys pitch.  However, I know it has got to be nerve wracking.

Holden had some really great hits at bat!

Our team was up most of the game, until the end when they ending up with a tie for the final score.  And just like that, baseball season has begun again.

These boys are keeping us busy and are growing up way too fast in the process.

Swing your partner...

Swing your partner round and round… It was time for Holden's annual Square Dancing Hoe Down at school.  This year there was little notice, as in I got an email at 9:00 pm the night before about this event, to send items in for the Hoe Down.   I quickly put his hat and a change of clothes in his bag for the event.  I rearranged our day so that we could attend.  However, this was one of those day that I wished there was another me.  There was so much to do and so many things and little people to tend to but I reminded myself that this is just the season I am in and to embrace.

My little crew and I watched Holden twirl, spin, clap and of course laugh through his program.

Yee-Haw Y'all!

Rylan's First Soccer Game!

Friday night was Rylan's first soccer game.  I know it may seem like we just started practicing last week {which we did} we actually were scheduled to start practicing about a month ago but the weather has not cooperated.  Thankfully, the weather was perfect on Friday for the game.  Rylan was dressed and ready for his game way before his 6:00 game time.

Before his game his little team stretched out.

And by the way, are they not the cutest kids!

Finally, it was game time.  Rylan, aka Bubba, was running and kicking and having the time of his life.   He even had a throw in to his teammate who then scored a goal.


All of running finally worked to his advantage, he got the ball and kicked it down the field for a GOAL!!!!

We were cheering like crazy!   I suppose we may have embarrassed him a bit because he put his hands over his ears.  Little Stinker!

It was such a fun and exciting game not to mentioned he had the time of his like.  Leyton was a little under the weather so I took him home while the boys headed to baseball.

A busy Friday night but it was so fun to be back out at the fields.

Everyday Joys {Week 14}

A recap of our week of joys….

This little guy is cute but he sure knows how to make a mess.  {April 2}

Games and practices were cancelled due to the rain.  So we did the next bast thing…dessert.  {April 3}

Bubbles and balls are all Leyton needs to keep him happy.  {April 4}

Saturday morning, pi's and shows.  {April 5}

Holden was off to baseball practice and could not decide which team to wear.  {April 6}

Savoring these bedtime snuggles. {April 7}

As I always say, these boys keep me on my toes.  I told Holden and Rylan that they could play outside after dinner before we called it a night.  Holden come running in to tell me to look at Rylan.  When I walked out, this is what I found…. Rylan in full catchers gear.  Well, since he was dressed for the occasion,  let's play ball.  {April 8}

Everyday Joys {Week 13}

I am a little behind in posting our Everyday Joys so here is our recap…. Better late than never.

A successful day at the museum, despite the crowds.  (Shh, we are not going to tell Holden we went while he was at school.  I am sure Rylan will keep this secret about 3 seconds after he gets home.){March 26}

Yes, Dad, I am cheering for the Gators.  {March 27}

Fire pit, s'mores and these guys.  TGIF!  {March 28}

Rain, sleet, and more rain.  Took these boys to the pool to burn off some energy. {March 29}

Sunday church with these three cuties.  {March 30}

It's baseball's opening day and this little future player's first baseball practice. {March 31}

After a year of begging to play soccer, we gave in.  Yes, this spring will be a busy one with Rylan playing baseball and soccer and Holden playing baseball too.  So if you are looking for us, we will be at some type of field.  {April 1}

Finally some pictures and joys outside…more to come hopefully.
