I know its been a while but the good news is that I did come back. When I was last here, Gaines had just recovered from his bout with pneumonia and Beau left town for a week. After he got back, Reed had a fever virus and the fever virus I thought Gaines had turned out to be the flu...so that was fun.
April was busy with traveling and t-ball and everything else life brings. We just wrapped up choir and t-ball is starting to wind down which, even though I enjoy it, will be nice. Reed's team has done great this year and has a big game tomorrow night against the undefeated team. They've already beaten us once but it was really close. I need to get a picture of Reed in his uniform on here. He's so stinking cute I can't stand it. He has been in the outfield this year but has gotten to play pitcher a couple of times when they were winning by a good bit. His hitting has gotten much better and he is one of the fastest on the team. Beau claims he was the fastest kid in school until the 4th grade so maybe that's where Reed gets it from but knowing Beau now, I have a hard time imagining it. He's just not much of a runner these days.
I actually don't always give Beau enough credit on here but I really have a great husband. He cleans up from dinner every night and is the sole dishwasher loader and unloader. I know this sounds absolutely ridiculous, but sometimes he gets on my nerves when he does my chores. I know. I'm crazy. I guess I just feel like it makes me look bad but really he'd rather fold laundry in the air conditioning and I'd rather be outside piddling in the yard. This time of year is so nice that its hard for me to stay inside.
Today the boys and I were playing outside before Beau got home and I got to watch Gaines playing a little soccer. Reed has always been the athlete of the two but now that Gaines is getting older, he's coming into his own. I've always been a little worried that he might not be good at sports since he seems a little clumsy at times (which I think is a result of the rough start he had) but he wasn't bad today! He's in a little soccer class at school and he really enjoys it. I think he likes having is own thing like Reed has whatever sport he's playing at the time. Its crazy but both boys will be on the same soccer team this fall. That should put Gaines on cloud nine. He wants to do whatever his brother is doing. He also just started riding a real bike. No more tricycle for him. I am amazed at him doing it. For a long time I didn't think he'd be able to ride a bike. He just wasn't getting it and I figured there was some sort of leg issue.
In other Gaines news...he turned 4! I know...I can't believe it either. He had a pirate party at the park and had lots of friends there. It was truly a great day. I'd been planning it out for a while and it all came together like I wanted...and most importantly he was happy. It was a good day all around.
I've got more to say but typing on this ipad is beyond infuriating and our computer is dying a slow death so I guess this is all for now. I'm not even going to proof it so excuse my errors. I'll try and add pictures next time.
Love to all,
