 I put Gavin and Kyson on the same T-ball team this year.  This is both of their first time playing, so it was a pretty funny game to watch them! Kyson hit the ball, and then immediately ran to get his ball.  He then ran from 1st to 3rd base, and a few times, just stood on his base and waved and smiled at me and didn't run when it was time.  Then, when it was his turn to be out field, he was playing 3rd base, and when the other team hit the ball, he started to run home.  He started to catch on by the time we got to the end.  Gavin did great and looked like a mini baseball player.  He'd rest his hands on his knees while he waited for the other team to hit the ball.  They had a blast!

Birthday Gavin!

  I can't believe my Gavin is 6!  That seems so old! We had a great day celebrating Gavin!  After school, we headed to one of his favorite places, the Dinosaur Museum, and then after that came home to his favorite dinner, Lasagna, and then family came over for cake and ice cream.

Some things about Gavin is:
-He is a VERY good boy at school and church.  He was just awarded Student of the Month for "being quiet" as he says.  His teacher said it was for good citizenship.  I guess being a good citizen is the same as being quiet.
-He is doing good in school.  He is reading on level and is a hard worker!
-He LOVES LOVES LOVES his hamsters.  First thing he asks me when he gets up in the morning is if he can hold a hamster, then any spare minute he has, he usually has a hamster in his hand.  He even prays for the hamsters in every prayer.
-He's a little builder.  He can spend hours out in the sandbox building something.
-He is a good brother and plays really good with his brother and sister.

It is suppose to be a Skylander portal...doesn't look as good a the pictures online, but oh well!

One of his presents was a kit where he can paint and glue together a train, plane and fire truck.  He wanted to get working on it so bad that he kept asking when is everyone going to leave his party! Finally the next morning he could work on it.  Adalyn has really been into coloring lately, so this is what she did while he worked on that....such a big girl!

Happy Birthday Gavin!  We are so happy you are in our life!

Adalyn's tubes

 Poor Addie has been dealing with ear infections straight since Christmas.  We finally decided to get her tubes and I'm glad we did.  When the dr. went in to put in the tubes, she had to drain one ear because of past infections and she had another ear infection in the other ear.  Hopefully our happy Addie will be back!

Spring Break!

 We had such a fun Spring Break! We had good weather for most days, so we tried to get out and enjoy it as much as possible!  We visited the zoo, Thanksgiving Point and Trafalga.  We are so excited and ready for warmer weather!

We hope you all had a wonderful Easter!  We had a great weekend coloring eggs, easter egg hunts and  being with family.  Poor little Kyson got pink eye and a double ear infection, but after we got him some medicine, he didn't let that stop him from having fun!  Adalyn loved the good weather and being outside.  I had the hardest time getting pictures of her egg hunting because she just wanted to run! Gavin loved everything about this holiday, he kept saying "I love Easter SO MUCH!"
