Game in the Rain...

Ready for our soccer game this morning! It is 46 degrees right now and pouring rain... so it should be fun!

Ben and Conner did a great job playing soccer in the rain and wind!  We were all soaked through, but those boys just kept going.  When we got home, we quickly peeled off all the dripping clothes, put on warm comfy clothes, turned on the fireplace, and got warm! Another great game!!!

Tonight we got to go to the Kernels baseball game!  The boys got some new hats and, most exciting of all, they got to carry the flag onto the field for the National Anthem!

Soccer Game...

First Spring soccer game today!!!  Woo Hoo!!!  Ben and Conner are so excited!

Conner and Ben both did so good today!  They are always right in the action!  Conner took a ball to the head, so he had to sit for a while and make sure he was okay, but he was so ready to get back in there!  Good game for both boys!  We were even joined by Mama and Papa, so that was fun!  The boys apparently have also asked several adults at school to come to their games and they were lucky enough to have a couple people come by to watch them!

What a glorious day in the sunshine! Ben and Conner ran through a neighbor's sprinkler, with their clothes on, before deciding to ride their bikes for a while.  And yes, Conner does have one Spiderman glove on...  I adore how spirited these two are!

Busy Fairy...

Yes, Conner got obsessed with another tooth and would not rest until he pulled that thing out!  So, another visit from the Tooth Fairy tonight...

Last night at Great Papa's, Mama and Papa showed the boys that they had two more Easter baskets to open!  Since we got home a bit late last night, Conner and Ben had to wait until today to see what was in their baskets.  They were thrilled with all the superhero stuff!  Thanks Mama and Papa!

Ben's Latest...

Ben lost another tooth today!  He lost it at school so he got another tooth necklace which is always exciting at our house!  These baby teeth are going to be gone before we know it!

The boys were keeping busy at the kitchen table after doing their homework today.  Nick happened to be napping on the couch and snoring quite loudly... so the boys decided they needed to use their headphones to drown out the snoring, so they could get some "work" done!
