Weekend Rewind

This morning, I am hanging out with two tummy-sick little ones. Cal had his round on Sunday and Ellie in the night and now Tate. Of course they watched too much tv yesterday and now I need it to keep them immobile. Isn't that the way? Here is my attempt at rewinding and catching up.

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.

Been a mom for 23 years...and still taking pix of my guys playing baseball! Tball is a bit tedious but when you can see them developing their passion it is soooo awesome!

Sorry you are dealing with the dreadful stomach bug, that is no fun at all. But it sounds as if you had a wonderful weekend and the photos as always are just lovely. If I could make an animal anywhere as well as you our house would be overrun with them - I love the pigadillo.

Isn't that a great feeling? When you make something with your own two hands that causes your child so much joy? I made Dylan a shirt for his 3rd birthday and he cried when he had to take it off, because it got blue icing all over it!

Those t-ball pictures are great!
