T-ball and the Teddy Bear Clinic

Joseph and Andrew are playing t-ball through the local YMCA. It is the cutest thing ever. Brad and I had as much fun watching them as they did playing. The highlight of the first practice: Andrew hit the ball and ran to third base instead of first. I about died laughing.

Also, Joseph's class got to go on a field trip to the "Teddy Bear Clinic." The students take a teddy bear or stuffed animal to the local hospital and they do all kids of "tests" to their toys. I went to watch with a few other moms, and they even let Andrew participate.

Look how cute my little boys are!

Isn't this darling? They gave them little surgical masks and hair nets and everything!

As you can see, we've been busy now that the weather is nice. How have you been spending your warm sunny days?

Playing catch up

Hello friends. I have been gone FOREVER! This is the longest I have ever gone without making a post. So, I'll catch you up quickly on what's been going on with our family. Here are the highlights of the past two months:

  • We went to Charleston to watch the Single A girls' basketball championship game. St. Mary's High School (the school Brad teaches at) made all the way to the championship game. Sadly, they didn't win. We had a good time though!

  • Andrew tried to drown. That's not really a highlight, just a happening. We went to a birthday party at a local pool and Andrew decided to give mommy and daddy a heart attack. Brad jumped in the pool fully clothed to rescue him, and in the process destroyed his Blackberry. It was a big huge fiasco. Thankfully, the Blackberry was the only thing harmed. I got into a really big fight with Sprint and finally talked them into giving Brad a new phone.

  • Joseph has become a ladies' man. All of the little girls in Joseph's class at school are in love with him. He has a little girlfriend named Laney. Apparently they're going to get married. He was going to marry Brionna, but she told him she wouldn't marry him until "he stops picking his nose." I think that's a reasonable request. Laney must not mind, because she sends him home with love letters almost everyday. 

  • We went to an Easter egg hunt at the Haroldsen's house. It was loads of fun!

  • We went to spend Easter weekend with Grandma and Grandpa. They took us to see How to Train Your Dragon. Our review? A+++++! We LOVED it!

  • Other highlights include: finally getting my house decorated (will post pics this week), finishing a whole bunch of quilts (will post pics of these also), getting extremely sick (like, sicker than I have ever been), and watching a whole lotta LOST (I love Jack!).

It's been good catching up with y'all! Until next post...
