January Funsies

Kicking off the first beautiful saturday of the New Year with some Ultimate Football.  It was a gorgeous but chilly day but the kiddos (and Dads) had a blast!

Worn out from the day...nothing like a sweet sleeping baby boy!  How did my Paw Patrol loving, sports playing, Curious George watching boy get so big so fast?

Speaking of fun - these three boys played Golf Pool for hours!  Hunter, Jack and Henry were pros.

Tyty takes on Basketball!

On January 9th we laughed and enjoyed watching Ty's very first basketball game!  We knew this day was coming, we just didn't know it would be so soon!  To no surprise he did great...he sure is lucky to have his older brothers to watch!

Coach Keith talking strategy.  Just don't take 16 steps without dribbling the ball at least once.

Scott, Ben Lee and Tyty getting geared up for their first game.  Watch out for these three!

always ready on defense!

January 2016 - Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

We began the New Year with a sleepover at the Ballews.    Regretfully I do not have any photos from that but we started the year off with a bang...literally!  Demo Day on the Master Bath Began!  WOOHOO!

Gettin' a little "hairy"

Do you see this?  Yep, Bella's hair I just furminated off of her...and I am able to brush this much off at least once week.  Every time I do it I think certainly she cannot shed much more, but it never ceases to amaze me every time...

I didnt quit brushing because she quit shedding, I just got too tired!  But she is we'll keep her!!!

Summertime boerdom?

I have been saying for weeks that I couldn't wait for summer because We are so unbelievably busy with school, baseball, soccer, choir, track, work, programs, committees, fundraisers etc. that I just want to be at home and be bored (as if that is possible with three wild Indians) but you know what I mean.  I want the boys to not have to be somewhere and to just be at home with "nothing to do". Well, I look out the window and Hunter and Drake have our old address stamp and this is what I found.  

I guess this is what we have in store this be continued I am sure....

Library Legends and Field Day

They do all kinds of fabulous things at Hunters school and I am always amazed at what they teach our children and opportunities they provide for them. I have been poor at documenting these this year and staying on top of it, but Hunter's year of kindergarten I can easily say has been exceptional. Almost every day I am amazed at how much he has grown and accomplished and learned.

A month ago his class presented their library book and became "Library Legends" at school. This is how it works:
They pick out a book from the library, and they write a brief description of the book. They then stand in front of the whole school (K-6) and present it. It was impressive to see these kindergarteners and fun to watch!

All these pictures I was taking with my phone while holding Ty so they are incredibly blurry. (Hunty is second on the left) 
This is his whole class and their books

They were in the gym for Flag Raising becuase it was rainging outside

I was trying to videotape them presenting their books while holding Ty, so it is a little shaky at first.  But so cute!   He was the second one to go so you will hear the end of God Bless America the school was singing the first little boy and then Hunty.

Now, coming back to May, yesterday was Field Day, which is a big deal at Oak Hill. Once you are in the second grade you find out your allegiance (if you are an Oak or an Acorn) but the first graders and kindergarteners have their own field days catered more towards their age group. So it was mostly a day of fun and games for the kindergarteners and Hunter had a blast!!

I was helping out with Field Day this year and I had fun watching all his buddies too.  They had 8 different stations and I was trying to snap a few pictures of him while I was working the "soccer kick."

Getting the ball through the swinging hoop...

Getting the ball in the bucket with no hands...

carrying the ball on a spatula...

well, this was suppose to be the soccer kick that I got AFTER he kicked the ball...oh well!

Potato Sack Races...(I didnt get a picture of Hunty but I got some of his buddies)

Obstacle Course

The three legged race

Hunter and his buddy Archer

The ole jumping with the balloon between your legs...

In this relay they had to bounce down and sit on a balloon and pop it (a huge highlight of course)

Back in his room for snacks and taking a break before the class competitions.  Hunter and one of his best buddies Hardy

Hunty talking about his favorite games so far

And then back out on the field for class relays

Hunter's class with his teachers Mrs. Bethurum and Mrs. Griffin...I am going to miss his amazing teachers so much!!!

The 4 Kindergarten classes waiting for the relays to begin

There were three relays and I only got pictures of the first one. Carrying flour on a spoon and filling up a bucket

After the third relay the teachers were showing the kiddos how to do the over/under race with a wet sponge. It was actually hilarious when they were demonstrating

Here they go!!!

And no better way to end than with popsicles!!!
