Last Friday Cal had a "Fancy Nancy" party at school. I called him "Fancy Clancy." They all got to dress up and eat fancy things and use fancy words all day. Of course, before he could leave for school, the other two had to get in on the dressing up action.
I did not mean to skip over Father's Day either. Currently no pics of the sweet cards and things made for Mike by the kids, but on Saturday we sent him golfing with a good friend and I got to hang out with these beautiful girls in addition to my own.
After, we had a lovely picnic as whole families with the Daddies back and the Missing Sister Friend too, who had a birthday party. I am currently praying that none of them are fighting the tummy bug, since Cal came down with it that night.
Monday Tate woke up with the obsession that I was going to sew him a pig. I had a million things to do, but it is so hard to say no when they ask me to make them something. I so often HAVE to say no for lack of time, materials or skills for their requests. But a pig? I thought I could handle that one. Maybe not so much. He turned out cute, save his bum which I made too long (??not sure that is the right word??). I call him "pigadillo" but that makes Tate mad because he LOVES him. Since making the two-legged pigadillo yesterday, he has not left Tate's side...
....and was even brought to watch his game.
I love watching Tate, but have to admit that there is something a bit tedious about T-ball. Three innings is about one inning too long for at least half the kids. That outfield stance a couple pictures back did not make it to the third inning. By then, it was more like kneeling on the ground, sitting, being goofy, talking to the third baseman. Tate made a couple good plays though and got hits without the T. His "new" borrowed cleats are making him super-fast! Thanks Meg. All in all, a lovely night until the barfing began.
I think that, mostly, brings me up to date. Off to wash lots of sheets and blankets and possibly start on my requests for sewing a butterfly and a (ack!) stegosaurus.
