Basketball Time!!








Isaac had his first game tonight! I was a little worried at first because as soon as he got the ball he just held it and ran to the other end of the court!! No dribbling or anything!! It was hilarious! Things got better as the game progressed, and he made a basket near the end!! (I haven't figured out the settings on my camers, so I keep getting crappy pictures. Sorry!)

What is up with my kids???

I got a letter sent home with Dallin today that simply stated:
"Dallin turned off the lights on the other boys in the bathroom."
So, I read it out loud to him to see what he had to say for himself and all he says is:
"I didn't want to go to recess anyways."

Aaah!! These kids are crazy! Where did they get their manners??

Isaac's Football Game

So, this took me forever to post. Isaac's first football game was the day after Xander's and he did GREAT! He scored 2 touch-downs in the 1st game. He is so fast the other kids couldn't touch him! Good Job Isaac!!

My Garden...

I didn't have much room to work with this year for my garden. (I know what you're thinking- don't you have 6 acres??) Yes, but it wasn't ready in time to start planting come spring. So I used a raised bed that the previous homeowner already had around the side of the house. It's about 2 feet by 4 feet. Elijah just picked one of my carrots, and I had to share. How cute is this?

Flag Football!!

Yesterday was Xander's 1st Flag Football Game! He was so excited! He's been wanting to try football for a while now, but I think tackle football is a hideous idea for kids younger than like junior high, when they can better know when it's okay to tackle and not. Or when they can control their anger a little bit better. But, ANYWAYS... Smithfield Rec started Flag Football this year so I was willing to let Xan try that out. For the first few plays, he'd block his people then just kind of stand there wondering what he should do. But, if you know Xander, you know it only takes a minute for him to really grasp anything!! We finally got a new camera, so here's a few pictures and a quick video clip of his nice moves. (It's funny to watch. Once he realizes what to do, it takes no effort on his part to pull the flags off.)
