Another Catcher

Harvey has been a little worried about Erik’s team.  He was not sure they were going to pull out a win this season, but they surprised him and won their first game 12-4.  Not sure what the rest of the season will be like, but at least they have a win.

He really likes playing catcher.  Loves the gear!  He said no one else wants to play catcher.  They are all happy he wants to do it.

It’s not easy catching eight year old pitchers!

Way down deep there are always a couple more sunflower seeds!

Ryan had three games yesterday.  I have no pictures.  It’s so hard to get pictures with all of the big fences surrounding the big kids!

Megan at play

We lost the battle with Josey’s hair.  The mats were too bad so they shaved her.  She seems half the size.

They’ll play any sport with lots of accessories.

More ready!

So baseball has been a hit for Megan.  Today Harvey got to go watch her play.  She wants her brothers to cheer her on but they keep having their own games.  Harvey is at his 5th game of the day right now.  Looking forward to a couple of weeks off this month.

T-Ball

It’s finally Megan’s turn!  She had her first practice a couple of weeks ago.  She did so great!  She could not have been happier and couldn’t wait for her first real game.  She’s a GIANT!

Another great idea…

I have hated our fireplace since the moment I saw it.  I’m not sure if it’s the marble-ish tiles, pink grout, the varying widths of grout, the brass and black doors, or the over zealous use of silicone…

So last night around midnight I made another search of mantles.  I saved a picture of one I like a lot.  After church I showed Harvey the picture. He liked it too and I think jokingly, told me to chip a piece off to see what was under.  We have done enough in this house to know nothing was done correctly and it will be a big pain for us, but you can’t let that stop you!  So at 1pm, with no real plan…

For a brief moment I thought I was going to find beautiful brick and not have to replace it all.

I think it already looks better than the old one!  Unfortunately the brick isn’t pretty or done well so we will have to redo that.  It is going to be so beautiful though!  Harvey just loves when I stay up and look up stuff on the computer!

We’re back!

Baseball season has started.  This year we have 3 players and 5 teams.  I’m pretty sure I wasn’t part of that discussion.

Baking away

IMG_7231

Megan has been baking to her heart’s delight the last couple of days.

It finally happened!

She had been wiggling it like crazy all week.  No tears.  Just pure delight!  She lucked out with a better tooth fairy than the boys.
