It finally feels like Spring around here! The sun is out more days than not, and we are getting to spend more time outside - making us all a little cheerier!
Ethan's arm inflamation calmed down significantly by Saturday morning (a week ago) and so we spent the day with our friends Nadia and Sonia. We had pizza at their house and then (after a brief break for naps) headed out to see The Music Man, put on by Kitsap Children's Musical Theater (or something like that). Have you noticed I use a lot of parentheses (it's a problem, I know).
The performance was great - and the boys loved it. Lucas took the sweet parts very seriously and I soon realized he was trying to give me "the eyes" and get me to swoon. Swoon, I did.
Getting pictures of these kids has become difficult as of late. I used to have a million good ones, but now we just can't swing it....
Tball was a new experience, as Ethan can now use both arms and has to relearn some of the skills. But he persevered (which he will tell you means he tried VERY HARD) and improved quite a bit over the two practices. Lucas perfected the art of dandelion blowing.
"Mom, how come everyone says Lucas is cute and no one says I'm cute?"
"You're older now, you aren't cute, you're handsome."
"Oh, part of growing up?"
"Yep. I know, it stinks. I'm not cute anymore either. But you're cute sometimes - I promise."
Ethan gets so annoyed with his little brother who is starting to love being the center of attention -as long as it's on his terms, that is... I hear many a lecture from older brother to younger.
"I'm stuck. Weally stuck."
And now today is full of sunshine and fun to come! I'm a lucky lady to be a mom to these guys!
