K is playing her first season of t-ball. So far, she is the only little girl on her team. There are suppose to be two other little girls, but they haven't shown up for practice yet. Her first game is Saturday, May 9th! She is an athletic little girl, and catching on real fast! Last week at the end of her practice a little boy walked up to her, gave her a high-five and said, "Good job K!" Surely six-year-olds don't flirt, do they? If you think so, please don't tell her Dad!

Banana Muffins

Mom and the girls still try and bake while the boys go to scouts on Tuesday evenings. Recently, we tried out a new recipe for Banana muffins. I thought the girls would think it was FUN to mash bananas. Nope, they thought it was "disgusting!"

Our First Garden

The little girls were precious helping us plant today. They talked to every single plant, and prayed and asked Jesus to help the plants grow, and keep the bugs and rabbits away.
We planted three tomato plants, two pepper plants, one zucchini plant, some cilantro, spinach and lettuce seeds. We will plant some okra later. We have to wait for warmer weather. We had a lot of fun!

Yard Work

Last weekend (the 17th and 18th), I (Mom) had the opportunity to attend a special retreat for Pastor's wives. While I was away, Heath and the children enjoyed the beautiful weather, and worked out in the yard. T and Dad fixed some loose boards on our privacy fence. K got all the weeds out of the garden plot (We are going to start planting this weekend). Dad also layed out some new mulch around the deck, and he put up some really cool solar powered lights for our walkway along the front of our house. I enjoyed the time away. The kids enjoyed having some time alone with their Dad. It was wonderful coming home to such a nice looking yard!

heehee...I just noticed after this post published, that it looks like Dad is beating T with a baseball bat. Don't worry, he's not:)

Tiger Badge

Tonight, T was awarded the Tiger Badge. He worked hard in order to receive this special badge! If you look closely, you can see the tiger badge is upside down. T must do three good deeds before he can turn his badge the right side up! On the way home tonight, he performed his first good deed. He let his sisters get their milkshakes first.  T and Dad are looking forward to going to cub scout camp this summer! In a couple weeks, T will be participating in a special bridge ceremony where he will cross over the bridge and no longer be a tiger cub -  he'll be a wolf!

April Snow!

It was strange waking up to this on April 8th!!!

Friday, April 3, 2009


T's homeschool co-op science teacher had some buckets with lids she was giving away to anyone who wanted one. T immediately asked for one because he thought it would be GREAT to put worms in!

T has been wanting to catch some worms and make his own worm farm. We explained to T that there was more rain in the forecast, and when he woke up, he'd have a chance to get some worms!

Well, at 7:00 a.m. we heard a lot of commotion, and someone in the hall closet. It was T trying to find his gloves and rubber boots. He woke up earlier and saw the rain and the HUNDREDS of worms out in our driveway!  So he got his jar, headed out the door, and got to work!

He had to wait until around 3:00 p.m. before it stopped raining long enough to go outside and dig up some dirt to put in his bucket.

He worked hard all day, and has a good start on his worm farm. Tyler plans to, "fatten the worms up and sell them for bait."

So, anyone here in our neck of the woods need some fishing bait?
