Averie rode Chiquita. She did awesome!
Even Cohen decided to mount up.
There are lots of emotions these little guys go through during T Ball!! They learn, they throw fits, they refuse to stand and play, they make home runs, they goof around, they look forward to snacks (Cohen's #1 reason for going to T-Ball) and they endure the month season. Cohen did great! Jeremy sent an email thanking his coach Eva and this is what she had to say about Cohen:
"He's got a brilliant personality. I'm sure there's never a dull moment for you and your family with him around. It's a blessing to have such a vibrant kid. I had a really good time being his coach."
This is Olivia's 1st Grade picture. Had I had known that they were going to showcase her shoes instead of just a close face shot I would have chosen better jeans and shoes!! Oh my goodness! BUT good thing she is beautiful no matter what her clothes look like!!!! (P.S. Note to self: On picture day - dress head to toe!)
What a great 1st Grade year Olivia had! She had an amazing teacher and Olivia just excelled. She loved Mrs. Brewer and Mrs. Brewer loved her. Olivia would come home from school and tell me all about the new things she learned about her teacher. I would always ask, "But did you learn anything else?" She would say no. It was evident that she did though. Her grades were high and she loved going to school. What more could a mom ask for?? For the end of the year gift I asked Olivia what she wanted to give her teacher. She spent a few days thinking about it and she told me a whole lot of pencils because the kids were always running off with them! So that is what she got! A WHOLE LOT of pencils!
McCoy is just to the stage where he is trying to figure out who everyone is. "Nana is my mom's mom" he kept saying. Then he would go through all the grandparents and how they were related. It is cute to see the wheels spin in his head. McCoy really wanted to go home with my mom. He knew Benita was there so to him it seemed fabulous. He cried and cried when I said it would have to be another day.

No crazy amount of wind was going to keep me from going to Lake Powell to meet up with my friends! Although it should have. I have a new baby! DUH!! I was panicking a little on the speed boat as we were getting hit with some waves. It probably wasn't a good idea since I didn't have a life jacket for my baby, but I said a little prayer and we made it safely across the water to the houseboat! It was so worth it! We had so much fun for the few hours we were there and of course the weather calmed down. Love this group of little people although they have grown up so much since I have seen them last!!
