Soccer season 2011

This soccer season I decided to let someone else do the coaching and enjoy cheering for my kids. Katelyn is learning a little more about how to control the ball and run around for fun. She actual did a Hershey track meet for her school and placed in the 200 Meter. She is enjoying the sport and actually is on the same team as several of her friends which always helps.

Taylor decided to play soccer instead of trying out baseball this year but decided shortly after that he might have made a mistake. We've taught him to work his hardest to complete the season instead of just quitting. Next year he'll be playing baseball for sure but he is working hard to finish out the season. I am so proud he's going through with it!

Boys will be boys

The boys were playing around with some glasses, they sure have a lot of fun together. It's fun to see their personalities come out the older they get. William is definitely the ring leader. Joshua likes to do whatever his brother is doing but is becoming more independent. Matthew is the little man on the totem pole but he can hold his own. I love these little guys!

Spring Break 2011

Our spring break was rather blah this year! Matthew was sick with a fever for the first half but Zack managed to get our garden set up for the year since we didn't go anywhere. He had to work nights but played with the kids during the daytime. All the kids spent way too much time on the wii. It actually was to cold to go swimming when Matthew felt better so that was a bummer. It ended up being more for projects than play. The kids did get to go to the movies and play at the park so it wasn't too bad. Our original plans were a lot more fun but such is life!

Lunch with Grandpa and Grandma

Recently, we have been taking the little boys over to Grandpa and Grandma Belt's home for lunch on Thursday afternoons. Jennifer and Hailey meet up with us there. The kids love playing together and the grownups love getting to visit so regularly! It has been lots of fun for all of us. I really have appreciated getting to know my grandparents better. Grandpa loves to share stories from his younger years and we usually all have a good laugh! Matthew seems to have Grandpa wrapped around his little finger. Grandma just enjoys watching all the kids play and sneak kisses!
