This Week

I have no other word for May, but crazy!  I grab moments of time here and there and it works.  It has to work, because that's all we have.
Friday night we had the Oak Ram Run.  All the boys ran and I helped at the food tent.  I didn't get any pictures because I was passing out 837 slices of pizza.
After the 5K, Fred took the boys to a party at church while I finished passing out pizza.

Saturday morning Fred woke up and felt like riding his bike....for 50 miles...with a few of his friends.
While he was riding we were at soccer and baseball.  Mun and Janice came for the games.  We were so cold I forgot it was May.  We dined at Wendy's after all the games.

Saturday night the Wiggs came over to play and hang out.  Actually, they spent the night with us.  Other than Dash running out the door right as we were supposed to be at church, everyone made it just fine...well, unless you ask Nora.  She got very upset with me because I would not give her a third cupcake.  I just wish she could show some emotions.

Sunday at church we had Bible Drill recognition.  I was sitting in the balcony so I couldn't get an up close photo.  We are so proud of the boys and all they learned.
Later that evening all three boys had a program at church.  Jack even had a solo.  Andrew was Noah in the play.

Sweet boy just stepped down and started singing.  We were so proud of him.  I pray the words of this song ring in his ears for the rest of his life.

Monday we started field day.  Andrew was first.  I love the way their school does field day.  They keep a cumulative total of the scores of the field day.  Then on Friday, they have a parade around the school with all the classes and they pass out awards.  Ironically, Andrew's class won first place and he could not have cared any less.  Jack's class came in last.  He was disappointed/mad.  He does not like to lose.

Here is Jack at the beginning of the day.  He was very hopeful.  That changed very quickly.  Ha!

When tug of war began he was very excited.  He pulled for two other classes.  Each time a class was one short I would hear, "We choose Jack!"  He loved every minute of it...until his class lost.
He did participate in the football throw.  He sailed the football through the air for about 40 yards and won first place.  After he won that event he said, "It's like Mrs. Dempsey and I are the only ones that care about winning!!"  He said some other things about "stinkin' girls", but I think I'll refrain from writing that here.  He will need a prom date some day.  Since Jack was so down, we headed to his favorite Mexican restaurant.  While we were there his smile began to return, but then we headed to the batting cages.  Then his smile completely returned.

As a special spring time treat, Renee brought over strawberries.  Nautrally, I made homemade strawberry shortcake with fresh whipped cream.  It was a good night!
Thursday night Clayton had his spring concert.  He had a solo at the end of a song.  Of course, the village was there in full support.

The field day parade and award's day was Friday.  Fred attended and snapped a few pictures.  As I mentioned, Andrew's class won first place for kindergarten and Jack's place got last place for fourth grade.
 I have no idea why Jack looks like a giant in the picture.  He is big for a fourth grader, but not quite this big.

My dad went to camp this weekend and I loved this picture.  He said when he got there two boys in his room were fighting.  I think he's going to love it!

Saturday morning we woke up to a soccer game because baseball is over.  Soccer wasn't until 10 so we got a lot accomplished.  My three favorite helpers helped me make a dessert for dinner with friends.  We had a great time together.  

We played our final game of soccer and wrapped up the season.  I'm so tired I didn't even take a picture.

Jack had his final baseball game Tuesday and they lost.  He was totally bummed.  Clayton has started really liking to take pictures and he snapped a few for us.  I love everything he captured at Jack's last game of the season.  I also love to watch them support one another.
