Crazy King


It is hard to believe this little dude is going to be a preschool graduate soon, he has got some growing up to do! For now, he insists he wants to be a dog when he grows up!!
A 5 year old Xander comparison, wow it is like I re-birthed him 9 years later...

I had to include a sweet Kingston pic too


Strudel makes the dog life look pretty good, no wonder Kingston wants to be a dog!

Go Indians!


Jude's Stix team turned into the Indians this year, and they are off to a great start for 9u kid pitch.
They got to play on  the new turf here in Manhattan for their first tournament, this is so nice! We were 5 minutes from home and the rain we got over the weekend didn't affect their games at all. He loved sliding on it and didn't even dirty up his pants:)

The Championship game we played against the Aggies, who have several of the kiddos friends on their team, the game easily could have gone the other way. I was cringing because Jude came in to pitch the last 3 innings and somehow got the win with his slow-mo pitching, he made his dad proud for sure. 



These kids have some great hitters and are going to be fun to watch and grow this season.

Kindergarten Round-up


A kindergarten teacher doesn't get much cuter than this, Jude still visits her for starbursts, we love Mrs.Sandman!

Art is Kingston's favorite, we are so thankful for Miss Smith!

meeting Mrs.Rumford in gym, I am pretty sure she hasn't changed since I had her 28 years ago!!




My babe will go to Kindergarten this Fall and we couldn't be more excited, kindergarten rocks!

Happy Easter!

the annual porch swing pic, my kids are almost getting too big to fit on

you are never too old to hunt eggs, Xander would throw half his back out for Kingston to find:)


thankful to have these amazing Grandparents in our lives, we love spending Easter at the farm!

Monroe got to celebrate her 12th birthday on Easter this year




counting their money

this baby calf was born the day before and got away from his mama, Xander got to drive to help get them back together:)

Backyard Boys & BBQ


The apples and caramel might have been the biggest hit.

Jude invited a few of his buddies over for a bbq and games, it was a gorgeous Sat night!

The older siblings came up with the games including a neighborhood scavenger hunt, some of the items were a little tricky!


They had to wear shower caps covered in shaving cream and see how many cheeto puffs would stick, thankfully Strudel ate up the ones that didn't..

whose idea was this?

yes it is still basketball season....





Trav started a small fire during the bbq part and we had to go on a second run for burgers and hot dogs...

Hey Jude is Nine!!


Crazy that this was one of my first posts and have been doing this blogging thing (not well) but doing it for 9 years, my kiddos and I love looking back at old posts and videos, thankfully because I think I have forget most everything:(


Jude at nine you continue to have the sweetest most gracious heart!  My middle sensitive pleaser child I can relate to you so well!  It is no surprise that your first word was baseball because you are my most competitive boy child by far and love all things ball. If you ever need a game to watch with someone this is your guy!!
