We're just plain busy.
Tomorrow Caleb wraps up his baseball season. We are so proud of our little player. Each season he continues to improve. He hits the ball well and has been making outs on the field. His favorite positions to play are catcher and first base. Patrick continues to help out with coaching. So it's been a special time together for the boys. And we just love watching him play.
Madeline continues to enjoy dance. She has a Holiday performance coming up next month, for which she's very excited about. She's also been begging me to do more school with her. Although I have different programs I use to teach her, we barely do school together. She does a great job of keeping herself busy while I work with Caleb. However, she's asking me to teach her more. So I'm carving out more time in the day to do that.
Still no word on our LID for Havi's adoption. We're hoping to hear any day now.
With the cooler temps, the kids have been playing more in the front yard. Although I don't like it getting dark so early, we do love this time of year. It allows us to get outside any time of day, without having to load up on sunscreen and water. lol
Caleb asks me to play catch with him...daily. It's precious. So while we're doing that, Madeline is either riding her bike or her brother's scooter...or bringing her stuffed animals outside for storytime.
This afternoon, well, we're hoping to close on our new house. And while we have LOVED this extra wide sidewalk in front of our house for the kids to play on (we live on a busy street), we are looking forward to living at the end of a cul-de-sac.
