Final Baseball Game

I am going to post pictures of the trip, there just has not been time to post them yet. I want to get them on the blog, I have run out of time. Saturday was Blake's last baseball game and I think all the boys had a good time. Blake likes to be on the team, but I don't think that baseball is his favorite thing. He likes hanging out with his friends, but when it comes to hitting or playing in the field he doesn't care much. Here are some pictures of Blake at the game.

Here are Blake, Hunter, Riley and Brandon.

Here are the girls !! Hallie, Brantley and Reagan

This is the last week of school, so all they are doing is playing and watching movies. Blake came home tonight and at the dinner table asked Chad to spell "I cup". Chad didn't understand and Blake asked Chad again to spell "I cup". Chad said "what?" and finally Blake said "Spell 'I cup' I-C-U-P (spell it outloud and you will get it!!:)) Blake and Hallie just laughed and laughed. Chad and I tried to keep a straight face and we ended up telling him he should not share that joke, but I had to share it with all of you!

Hallie's 4K Graduation

I know this info is about 2 weeks old, but this is the first chance I have had to blog about it. Hallie's graduation was the day before we left for our cruise, we were all still battling the stomach bug, but we had a great day. She was very excited and looked cute in her cap and gown. She was one of the 4k's that got to have her own part of the graduation. She said her "Z" blends for the whole audience. Each child received a special award and Hallie got the award for Best Manners. I'm glad she is polite at school, I wish some of that would translate to home!!!

She sang lots of songs with her class, they said their ABC's frontwards and backwards. They named all of their presidents and said lots of different pledges. Here is a picture of the whole family from graduation..

Here is Hallie with her diploma..

Home Again

We are home from our cruise and had a wonderful time. I will post more stories and pictures throughout the week, but we had a fabulous time. The islands were beautiful and we relaxed the whole trip. As soon as the ship left the port in Ft. Lauderdale we both sighed a huge sigh of relief, we knew we were on our way. It was really easy to slip into the relaxed mode of the ship, we ate all day, swam, slept in the sun and shade and watched a bunch of movies on the movie screen above one of the pools. They played movies all day and then at night, you could watch a movie and eat popcorn while sitting on top of the ship. It was really cool.

On the house front, we do (finally) have a contract on a house in Russet Woods. We are very excited. It is going to be perfect for our family, Blake will have his own room and we all will have lots more space.

The kids did a great job while we were gone. I think Mom will probably sleep for 3 days once she gets home, but the kids managed really well. They were excited to see us and we had a fun night just playing and doing what they wanted to do. I'll post more about the trip later this week.

New House

We think we have a house! We are really close to having a contract signed on a house in Russet Woods. We are very excited. Hopefully in the next day or so, we will know for sure if everything is going to work. We have a few more details to work out. I will update as soon as I know for sure.

Daniel is still sick, he is home with Mom again today. I am hoping he will be better enough to go to school tommorow. Andrew woke up last night with a 103 fever, he was without fever this morning, then this afternoon it has started again. I need everyone to get well! I am hoping that all this will be over on Saturday, and Chad and I can leave on our trip and not worry about the kids. It's going to be hard to leave them when they are sick, but we will go and have a great time.
