February Recap

I'm getting pretty bad at this blogging thing. I really do enjoy blogging, but you would think that I hate it based on the way that I've been avoiding it like the plague. I've tried to figure out what has changed since December (when I was still blogging regularly) and the biggest change seems to be Chloe's participation in organized sports. I guess those afternoon practices and weekend games have been taking more out of me than I thought.

Well, any-who, here is a recap of our February.

Earlier in the month, we made a trip to Build-A-Bear to build our Valentine's teddies. I've only taken the littles to this store once before, but they walked around like they were seasoned veterans...I'm sure that their Lola (my mother) has nothing to do with that;)

Sissy helping her brother, as usual    

Chris and Evan had a guys-night-out at the Monster Truck Show! (Evan really deserves a special night every once in a while, especially considering that our lives seem to revolve around Chloe and her activities. Don't worry. Evan will have his share of his own activities one day.)

Here they are showing off their "manly men" faces before the show.

Per my request, Daddy took some phone pictures. Thank you, Chris!

Chloe's classmate, Cameron, had a cute lego-themed birthday party with inflatables.

Chloe has revealed to Chris and I that she has a boyfriend in her class. They don't actually play together during recess, but she says that Cameron has claimed her for his wife one day...

Chloe and another one of her classmates, Evan, had a blast racing down the slide.

Chloe's classmate, Luke, also celebrated his birthday. His parents were sweet enough to extend an invitation to Evan as well. They had a blast at the bowling alley!

A small group picture with the birthday boy! - Chloe came straight to the party from t-ball practice, hence the workout attire.

Speaking of t-ball...Chloe's hasn't had her first official t-ball game yet, but practices have started.

Here are a few pictures (taken with my phone) at try-outs. Everyone makes the team, but the try-outs are held for team placement, so there is an even distribution of players with different skill levels on each team.

I was able to snag a few photos at one her practices.

Chloe is the bright green speck in the outfield. Also, Chris has decided to help coach this year. That's him in the orange.

Our most exciting news during the month of February was that Chloe was selected to attend the academic magnet school next school year. We have prayed for this and we couldn't be more excited and thankful! By some divine fate, Nana, Grandmama, Lola and Uncle Jose were there as we shared the great news with Chloe. It was truly a sweet family moment as I read Chloe her letter of acceptance.  

I think that we're all caught up on February now:)

  1. T-ball was so fun with Autumn this year! We decided not to do t-ball/baseball with the kids this summer, because it was just so hectic last year while they still had dance/scouts going on until school let out! We may do it again next year. I think this summer I will put Autumn in gymnastics and Nathan in karate at the Y for something different. My kids LOVE Build a Bear, oh my have we spent some money there. LOL.
