The crazy that is called May

Baseball, football, scouts, birthdays, poetry readings, school lunch dates, picnics, it just never ends and that is a good thing, right?


Goodbye preschool

Grant's last day of preschool was today.

He was so excited to go, they had to wear swimming trunks.....

His teachers took all the furniture out of the room and they had a beach party. The kids had a blast.
A magician also put on a show and Grant was chosen from the audience to help with a trick.

He was very excited. (On a side note, did you notice the mural behind Grant? A parent at our school painted an underwater scene around the entire gym room. It is fantastic! )

His teachers were phenomenal! They survived all three Winger boys and for that, they should get a gold medal :-)
Grant is totally pumped for kindergarten, it's me that's not so ready:-(

After school he washed the mailbox for me in his swim trunks and climbed to the top of the rope on the playset and rang the bell! He was the first of all the boys to ring the bell and he's not afraid to admit it, lol! Everyone within a five mile radius heard him tell how he climbed that rope.

He ended the day back at the ball field with Dylan's team, he is the bat boy for the team. I can't tell you how much he loves that job. He cheered Dylan's team on for their first big win.

Race for the cure

Yesterday, mom, Nicole and I completed the 5K Komen race for breast cancer. It was really a great day.

There were tons of people all in pink and a few pink dogs too.

I don't know if you can tell in that picture but the street is full of people all the way to the horizon and beyond and twice as many behind us...amazing.

I was so proud to walk with mom. She's a survivor, hero, and great role model for women everywhere.

Nine years and one day ago...

...a sweet baby boy named Jack Steven was born, 7 pounds and 3 ounces of pure joy wrapped up like a baby burrito.

Happy ninth birthday Jack, we love you and are so proud of the boy you are. More details of his 'survivor party' to come.

Spring sports have begun

Jack had his first flag football game on Sunday and he did great.

The Buccaneers (Jack's team) won and they even named a play after Jack: the Jack attack :-)

Dylan and Grant both got their baseball uniforms tonight. Someone couldn't wait until picture day to try his on ;-)

Grant is just beside himself, he was dancing and grinning from ear to ear. I'll snap a picture of Dylan on picture day (he's way 'too old' to get excited about his uniform).

Lunch choice

Me: Grant would you like a whole sandwich or a half sandwich?
Grant: Two halves :-)
