As usual it's been quite awhile since I blogged...or read anyone elses'. It's business (or should I say busy-ness) as usual around here! Snug lost his first tooth in early January. He is P R O U D of it. Daddy took it out, it makes mommy squeemish. Know what else makes me cringe? Rosebud losing her ENTIRE pinky fingernail. She shut her hand in a door here at the house and after nearly a month it fell completely off in my hand. Ugh.
Basketball season is upon us. Both boys are playing Upward Basketball this year. LMM is on a team for 3-4 year olds. His games are...interesting. Funny. Aggravating. He has a WONDERFUL coach who literally leads him around at times when he needs extra supervision. Each child wears a colored arm band so they know who from the other team to guard.
LMM is our defensive player. He is great at rebounding. He's also not bad at dribbling and shooting. He's very happy to be playing and not simply watching this season.
One of the little girls on his team is the coach's daughter. They forget they are on the same team most of the time and literally fight over the ball. There's quite a bit of hip checking going on too. The coach is very patient. Along with basketball skills the kids are learning to share, be kind, and be cooperative. I love that Upward has memory verses and devotions to go along with the practices/games.
Snug is our offensive player. He has had a complete turn around from last season. Last year he was quite confused as to what was going on in the games, but this year he is paying attention and has a great shot.
He also has a really great coach who patiently teaches the basics and is willing to give step by step directions over and over again from the sidelines.
We ordered team pictures, but only got one for the boys. I took my own to give away.
Basketball season is half over already, where does the time go?
Snug loves life. At six years old, he is a big brother three times over, a role he takes very seriously. He loves to read, swim, run, play make-believe, and hear stories. He is sensitive to the needs of others and has a very kind heart.
Little Monkey Man
Watch out world! This middle child is not about to be left out of anything! Formally known on this blog as "Baby J" he is a baby no longer (but loves to pretend sometimes). His sense of adventure is downright dangerous and he will push your buttons all day long. This four year old is very generous and has a sweet smile that will light up a room. Don't let him use his "eyes" on you or you may fall under his spell!
Two years old and determined not to be left behind! This is one talkative, friendly, smiley, little lady-until she's not. And then WATCH OUT, cause she can throw a whopper. No longer the baby of the family, she has a style all her own. All things girly pink and sparkles of course...while she plays trucks in the mud with her cowboy boots on!
She's ONE! Hard to believe how fast a year goes by. She's my girl and she's demands lots of my love. Growing, changing, and making us all laugh, this little one is so precious.
