Busy Times

Things have been a little crazy around our house the last week. I've wanted to get these pictures on the blog, but haven't had a chance until today to get them from the camera onto the computer. Baseball started Monday night. It didn't go so well. Jay was really disgusted by the teams showing that night - the other Miller team had 6 kids who could catch the ball and throw the runners out. We had one kid (Benjamin) singing about poop in the outfield and another digging his way to China in the dirt by 3rd base. I'm really hoping tonight goes better. Here's a picture of the two baseball boys from Monday night.

Another thing causing some excitement around the house this week was something Cade won at school. Yes, Cade is now in possession of a 5lb Hershey Bar. It doesn't even fit on the shelf in our refrigerator. Cade was so proud of it on Monday. Jay brought him by the office after school so everyone could ooh and ahh over it. Really, it is quite impressive. No one at FCS had ever seen anything like it.

On Tuesday he couldn't stand it anymore and we opened it. I chiseled off two tiny squares and I don't think he's thought about it since then. What in the world are we going to do with 5 lbs of chocolate?

The other bit of excitement is that Cade got strep throat again. We have an appointment with an ENT on June 12. I'm pretty sure we'll be looking at tonsillectomy before school starts again. We haven't told Cade that yet because any time you bring up tonsils he gets worked up. Considering this will be his 3rd surgery you'd think he'd be a pro at it by now. I'll keep you posted on how that goes.
And you may be wondering how track and field day went. I think it went really good. He won 1st place in the Long Jump which is exciting because my dad held the state record in the Long Jump for several years. Maybe he's found his sport???

That is a BIG candy bar- almost makes me kind of sick thinking about all that chocolate :) Cade looks pretty cut in is uniform- does he have a cute butt in his sliding pants?

Wow - that's some serious chocolate. Glad to see a new post from you - I was starting to get worried. I'm anxious to follow baseball season as it unfolds!
