Summer t-ball

To start off the summer, Colt and Levi got to be able to be on the same T-ball team. This is one of the perks of having sons so close in age - we can take both boys to ONE practice and ONE game! They had a great season on the Cardinals this summer. 

Levi is focused on getting to 1st base.

Great form, son!! Maybe I should put him in track :) 

Contact made... 

Because Colt was one of the older boys on the team, after the 1st inning (the game consists of 3 innings of all team members getting to hit), he would receive pitches from his coach instead of having to hit off the tee. This was great practice for him as he will move up to coach pitch next season. 

Hanging out on 2nd base. 

Tatum and Eliza had their own cheering section. 

Team pic! Coach Gabe lived a few doors down from us at our Lost Creek house, so the kids loved seeing him around the neighborhood. It seems their favorite memories of their season are the snacks after the games/practices and learning a Lady Gaga song at their teammate's birthday party.  They spent the whole summer singing a song about a "Saxon Lady" but we never informed them what the correct lyrics were ;) 

Summer fun!

I'm officially embarrassed at how long it has been since my last post. Considering this has been the most stressful summer of my life, blogging fell way down on the totem pole of priorities. There is a list floating around somewhere of life's most stressful events. I think we managed to check off a few of them this summer when we decided to LIST and SELL our house (with 4 kids to mess it up, mind you) and BUY a new one, MOVE out of town for a month, and REMODEL our new house with a non-English speaking contractor all with a NEWBORN baby in arms and 3 other hooligans demanding much of my time! Oy! I thank the Lord for the strength to endure those long days. 

Despite the busy days, we did manage to have some fun and create some great memories. Stay tuned for all that in the posts to come! 

Ty and the kids

Funny faces

Daddy and Zoe at 3 weeks old. Levi is cuddling... definitely his love language. 

Funny story... A few weeks after Zoe was born, I asked Levi if she looked like what he had imagined her to look like before he saw her. He said, "No, I thought she would be orange like Zoe on Sesame Street." Cracks me up that he thought she would look like a puppet! 

Summer fun... washing their car. Hope they are this excited to wash the car when they are older!
