Just Plain Worn Out

So we've been busy lately and I guess the kids have been run ragged.
The girls keep asking me if they can put their
pj's on in the afternoon so they can take a rest.
Maybe it's time to slow down and have a little snooze.

A Little T-Ball Action

Bright and early Saturday morning we were out to see Emma
and her team, the Green Leaping Lizards
(the kids picked the name), play ball.
Thought we'd share a few of the action shots with you.

T-Ball is my kind of sport.
You get to swing until you hit the ball.

Then you run to first and get to stay on base even
if you were tagged out. And everyone gets
to run all the bases and score.

Look at that form!
Notice that the ball is headed straight for 1st bases' mitt.
Way to go Emma!

What a girl!!!

Emma's biggest fans

Summer Duldrums

"Mommy, I'm bored...there's nothing fun to do..."

“Already…are you serious?”

Ok, so obviously the newness of summer vacation wears off very quickly. I told a friend the other day that I had used up all the tricks in my bag after day one. Yikes! I’m in big trouble. How do we handle the boredom?

Here are a few things we’re going to do…

Nature walks
Kite flying
Backyard and Park Picnics
Swimming lessons
Toothpick & mini marshmallow construction
Aluminum foil play
Painting outside

Wash the bikes and cars
Forts and flashlights
Backyard Camping

This ought to take care of one week, but what about the rest? Good luck to all you mothers out there and let's get together soon for something - anything - before I go crazy!!!
