Well, I'm up and running again -- let's see what we missed:
Chase started t-ball last week, and so far he loves it. Right now they're just practicing, no games yet. At each practice, they each take turns batting, and then once they finally hit the ball, they run the bases. To Chase, these are all home runs, and he is so proud of each home run. Once in the field, he spends a lot of time talking to his teammates.
Our bedroom furniture finally came in last week, so no more mattress on the floor! It is all hand-carved and the stain is the same almost-black stain that is on our bathroom cabinets.
John came over to play with us this afternoon, and he and Cole had a great time. Everyone shared and played very well.
