Season Openers

This is Chenna's first year to play soccer and she was super excited before the first game!

Even the opposing coaches are amazed!!

Maybe we should emphasize - take the ball from the OTHER team.

For those who don't live in Edmond - Every Saturday at 12 noon the tornado siren goes off. This happened to be the start time of the game and as you can tell Chenna did not like the sound or maybe it was just the ref saying the YMCA pledge!

A drawback to bows - they can get stuck in the goal!

Colt is on the big field this year. It didn't seem to phase him! He played hard the entire game.

This is Catch's first year for football and he is having so much fun.

The first two pics are from the actual first game, but their jerseys hadn't come in yet.

On kickoff return...

Waiting patiently to go in...

It's very hard to get any good action shots because once the play starts they are all jumbled up and you can't tell who is who.

It's Launch Time!!!

"The most important key to achieving great success is to decide upon your goal and launch. Get started, take action, move." - John Wooden

My explanation for only one post in the last five months:

Can you believe it??

No, not that I FINALLY updated my blog. But instead, I did not match the boys' outfits and I actually let them pick out their own clothes (within reason) for the first day of school. Catch asked me about a month ago if him and Colt could stop matching so I figured it was about time. Don't worry, it won't happen everyday!

A new year and a new school brought lots of excitement for the boys.

I didn't let them pick out dirty shirts; it was just the rain that created those spots!

So happy to be at school with some of their best friends.

Them against the world...

Second grade here we come.

Ready for Kindergarten!

These were actually taken after school since time and rain prohibited morning pics.

Chenna missed her brothers!

Their response when asked what their favorite thing about the first day was:
Catch: "Reading time."
Colt: "Lunch time because I was across from Callon."
(They weren't even at the same table because they sit with their own classes, but they were close enough for him.)

If he only knew...

Catch's advice to Colt yesterday: "You should go to college because after you graduate you don't have to go to school anymore. Then you just go get a job and your life will be nice and smooth."

If he only could realize his life is the most "nice and smooth" right now!

Better late than never...

We spent Easter weekend in Texas with my mom. Saturday morning we went to a local church for a huge egg hunt and outdoor inflatable fun. After we got home we had another hunt at my mom's house because there was rain in the forecast for Sunday. The rest of the weekend included dying eggs, painting birdhouses, decorating sugar cookies and getting lots of love from my sister's baby, Devon. My camera (and sometimes my children) wasn't cooperating so the good pictures were few and far between.

Check out Chenna in the background. This is what happened after the bullhorn went off for the hunt to start and a million children darted after the eggs.

Colt and Catch's favorite activity...

Is there one under here?

One of our favorite things of the whole weekend - holding sweet Devon for the first time!

A Whole New Ballgame

Colt started his baseball career with a t-ball game last Thursday. He did awesome and made me one proud mom! Catch played his first machine pitch game of the season the same time and night (at a different ballpark) so I wasn't able to take any pics of him.

Dylan and Colt

Colt and Callon

Colt got to say the prayer before the start of the game.

Look how he got his body in front of the ball!

Go Cubs!
