Tee Ball Time!

It's Tee Ball Time for the kid and the first enrolled activity we've ever signed him up for... 

It's 10 weeks long, only on Saturdays, and finishes just before boy #2 is due... 

So it seemed like perfect timing and meant to be!

plus one of the kid's best buds is on the same team - FUN:) 

His very first day (March!) was COLD. 

and then it also decided to RAIN. 

Cold Rain = not fun and not good pictures either, grrr!

plus a hodgepodge outfit that doesn't match. at all. but was so stinkin' excited!

and do you think he cared it was raining? nope. cold? nope! 

And he took direction so well from the coach. 

almost TOO well, as in his feet seemed to be planted in concrete lol... 

Here he is getting moved to his place in the 'infield'. And once he was placed - he did. not. move. 

there were actually a LOT of tears on day 1. 

Abram didn't get it (i really didn't either!) - "why are kids crying?" he kept asking. 

"They might be nervous..." Dad told him. 

"Nervous??!? huh??" 

Talking to a new teammate... 

They have practice from 9:30 - 10:00. Then a game from 10:00-10:30 every Saturday. 

They each get two turns at bat (two turns meaning two good hits, no matter how many tries). 

He got two good hits right away and loved it! 

and my favorite pic of the day - right after he was done batting, he was so proud of himself and gave us a little wave:) my little cutie pie!!

Project Time!

Early spring, we like to do some sort of household project. 

We get a small tax refund and always try to put it in the house. 

This year, I may have gone a bit overboard. 

Husband blames PINTEREST. 

I blame pregnancy. 

Either way, we have a LOT of household projects going. 

I sold our dining room table on craigslist after an impulsive buy on a new one at the The Habitat Store. 

Finally got the new table home only to realize it needs to be refinished - completely. 


we're now dining at Abram's table for awhile! 

The kid has loved helping me on the table though... 

check out his sand job! 

There is a lot more to do. Sanding, painting, recovering. Whew. 

I also decided it was a great time to get new carpet. new hardwood. and oh, new trim too!

While we paid someone to install the flooring, I thought husband would love taking on the new trim (it saved us a ton to do it ourselves). 

The kid enjoyed assisting on that project as well.

Ripping out the old baseboards and nailing in some stragglers.

Proper eyewear and lighting is VERY important - see below!

I also threw our queen bed frame to the curb last week after realizing i hated it.

our sleeping quarters are less than plush. boxspring and mattress on the subfloor.

but that's a whole other post for another day!

MOMMY! Play with me! 

Daddy!! Let's play cars! 

Mommy. Daddy. lets play in my tent! 

The kid wants to play play play and, I have to admit, it often wears me out out out! 

And if we say "play by yourself for a bit" - well, lets just say it doesn't go over so well... 

We're trying to find a balance - playtime together, on his own, and having him help with household tasks too. 

We're all looking forward to warmer weather when we can enjoy some outdoor time! 

Until then - we're making the best of it. 

Daddy and the kid playing in his tent - not so easy for Dad obviously haha... 

And us outside playing "parachute man" - in the freezing cold! Parachute man really wanted in the picture too:)
