Finishing up February (and starting march)

Baseball baseball baseball.  That's about where we are at this time of year, but we are loving every minute!

Friends in cubbies at school....good stuff

#7 - heart explosion

Friday after school with friends.  These are the best days!

We love this school fiercely!

Snow day at preschool.  It never disappoints.

Even big brother got in on the fun!

Scott switched first grade classes recently and his first experience with the new class happened to be an epic field trip with our school naturalists to Point Dume and the tide pools.
Here's the class with the sand whale they built...

Views from our hike to the tide pools

I was so happy I got to go on this field trip with my guy

We really had THE BEST day!

How school should be!

Tide poolin'

These two! I love them so much! So lucky to get to grow up with the Richards girls!

Pancake morning with Owen the future "Jeff"

Face painting at picnic pals, this is O as a coyote!

Pool weather (almost)

Grown up night out to celebrate Emily's birthday! 

Love this mama tribe!

A special trip to karma baker with my almost 5 year old!


Valentine's day (over a month ago....sigh)

We had donuts and green juice for breakfast (balance y'all) and roses from Daddy.  And new baseball T-shirts

And chocolate covered strawberries at team class for snack.  Best.Day.Ever.

We had to document our flooded out back yard.  This puddle took days to go away and those two dark spots are stepping stones that are usually about 6 inches above the dirt - it was nuts.

Rainy weekends made for the perfect time to bring out dad's old baseball card collection.  Scott has been getting a baseball card after every game and practice from his coach so he's super into it!

We also took the opportunity to turn it into a geography lesson when Scott asked where each team played.

We spent hours with our invention box and weaving loom on those rainy weekends too.

And of course made time for our morning yoga.  Owen is becoming quite the little yogi.  

Owen brought his own gluten free bagels to class one day so he could participate in the bagel pizza day.  Also his shirt says "I love snacks" and has a picture of a stomach on its perfect.

Friday batting practice for Scott means a little boochkraft to go for mommy.

Snacks in the bathtub.....leave it to Owen.

Owen's practice with a pep talk from daddy.  Melt my heart.

Owen's team is called the Volcanoes and he was pretty stoked to get his gear ; )

Coming soon...birthdays on birthdays....and more baseball of course!

Baseball season

Way back in February we started practice for baseball season.

I had to drop Scott at his first practice because Owen had his first practice 30 minutes later at a different location.  I could have left Scott at the gate for all he cared, he was ready to get out there with his new friends, but I insisted I go in this time and actually meet the coach and you know, tell him how to reach me if he needed to...responsible parent stuff.

Scott....only picture I got that day

Watching big brother for a few minutes before we left for his first ever t-ball practice.

Then it was Owen's turn.  Just walking in like a total grown up.

He insisted on wearing his batting helmet for much of practice, even when he wasn't batting.

First batting practice.  Just the cutest thing ever!
Here's to a great season boys!
