Forever climbing and getting into situations. I’m surprised this girl hasn’t had more falls. She’s actually not bad at climbing down though. While at the playground she got herself into a few spots when I thought she was sure to fall but both times she used some strength, and/or some smarts to get herself safely up or down.
Who wouldn’t love shopping with these three. Always an adventure. Ethan really wanted to ride in the car too, but it made it a bit crowded. Sara had fallen asleep in the car and would have been happy to stay that way.
Ethan loves to learn. We were taking a little walk during Drew’s piano lesson and discovered a plant that I didn’t know the name of and Ethan wanted to know what it was. It is so easy to forget how we learned new facts before the internet. After a quick Google search we discovered it was plant commonly referred to as lambs ear. Later in the walk we came across a yard in need of a cutting. So Ethan asks what it is and I respond ‘weeds’. Then came the request. “Can we grow this in our yard?”. (Side note: I love that my kids feel comfortable wearing just about anything, anywhere. Today Ethan located a wizard costume and was loving wearing it most of the day.)
That walk was along a busy street so there was no way I was going to let Sara walk without holding my hand. Sara wanted nothing to do with my hand, but she was more than happy to take Lindsay’s. Even after Lindsay tried to pull Sara along to fast and she tumbled to the ground, Sara popped back up, took her sisters hand, and continued on.
The boys were having fun climbing the tree in our front yard. I thought it might be fun to get a picture of all four kids. Unfortunately that is not an easy task, but three out of four isn’t bad.
Drew’s teacher kept the class busy for the last few months of school by learning about Shakespeare and then acting out a shortened version of Romero and Juliet. Drew had a blast and the whole class did a great job with their parts. Drew ended up with the part of Frier Lawrence. He had a free speaking parts that were long and he did a great job memorizing all his lines.
Baseball season keeps our family busy. I figured we could sign Lindsay up for tee ball since Ethan was already playing anyway. She did great for being her first organized sport activity and I think she has a lot of fun. Both boys improved greatly. Ethan was just about hitting of coach pitches by the end of the season. Even though he couldn’t decide if he wants to be a left or right handed hitter, I guess he’s just starting the switch hitting early. Drew is doing great hitting and got some stronger hits in this year. He is also getting better at fielding. His highlights were when he participated in getting someone out. During the last game he even caught a line drive.
And of course you can’t resist the messy photos. Sara fulling enjoyed someone else’s sugar cookie and was not giving it up.
