Hat trick! and other highlights.

We've been buried with spring sport games and practices lately - maybe why I've been behind on the blogging.  We missed updating you on Chris' 40th birthday, Easter and other goodies. I'll do a bit of catch up over the next few days but first a few sports updates:

Ben = soccer, Andrew = Baseball, Nicholas = gym playgroup. It really is a whole lot of fun.

Today we enjoyed our first outdoor soccer game for the spring season.  Ben usually plays defense but today he got an opportunity to play offense (forward).  He scored 3 goals!  He may get more chances in the future.  The final score was 4/2 gladiators. Yeah Ben!!!  Before the game Chris promised Ben a cartwheel if he scored a goal. I wonder if this motivation had anything to do with the hat trick?  Ben is waiting for Chris to pay up.  PAY UP CHRIS!

A few weeks back we headed to Vegas for a 3 game baseball tournament for Andrew's Spartan team.  Andrew's team is beginning to gel after an entire winter of indoor practices.  Andrew pitched and played first base.  He pitched around 120 over the weekend, a bit too much, but did really well. His arm was sore.

I signed Nicholas up for a few different sports playgroups.  This month is "gym" games.  He is learning to play well with others and follow directions. Freeze tag is a hard concept - that boy just wants to RUN!

Loving the life of a boys mom. Did I mention it's cold watching spring sports? Hmmm.
