Baseball

Ah, my evenings are heaven again.  Here’s a taste of the boys practicing this week.  Each one is in a new league this year. So, Patrick will be facing the pitching machine and Mac will be facing kid pitchers and trying out new positions.

Patrick facing the machine!

And if you can see past the bugs on my windshield and the coach standing behind him, here is Patrick’s first time against the pitching machine. Not too bad! :)

Spring Break

There are pros and cons to having different spring breaks from the boys.  Obviously, the down side is having to find coverage for the days I work and they’re home…but when they’re different, I get some alone time!  And perhaps my favorite thing, is that I get to visit them at school and have lunch with them.

Sitting with Patrick and his friends was a blast.

My Painting

I went to a paint party with some coworkers. It was such a great evening!

My petals are a little off balance size-wise, but not too bad for a first try!

The Great Egg Chase

The boys took part in the church’s egg hunt.  I tried to remind Patrick that he only got 4 eggs last year, but he was convinced he’d get more this year! And due to the weather, it was moved inside…which made for an interesting race.  But the boys still had a fun time. They got to hear the Easter story AND stayed warm on a 20 degree day while getting candy.
