Jack's been playing defense....mostly cornerback but this past weekend he played right-side linebacker. He's not a big kid, but he's not afraid to tackle.
This past Sunday's game the weather wasn't so hot. The fields were wet from rain and it drizzled during the game. But Jack's team ended up with their second win...and he was so pumped when the whistle blew.

So we had a nice lunch at Panera. Chica insisted we eat outside and so we did. It was windier than I realized and the wind blew some of the hair right out of her ponytail. When we got to her appointment I took a quick 'before' picture. This picture doesn't demonstrate the straggly ends or the rat's nest that appears in the mornings. But she sure does look sweet.
Now Chica has been coming to the boys' appointments since she was born and has taken turns sitting in the chair and having her hair combed out. So she wasn't at all nervous about the happenings. Our stylist, Steph, first had to comb out all of the snarls and mysterious sticky clumps.
Geez, she looks all scared and miserable, huh?
Crossing my fingers she'll keep some of those curls....

So I'm in my glory right now...traveling from field to field. For me there's nothing better. Although it pains me to miss any of my kids' games, it's inevitable with 3 kids playing....soon to be 4! Chica's next up....will it be soccer, field hockey, cheerleading? Will it be lacrosse, softball or track?? Only time will tell!

We all gathered around the teacher and one by one the kids went to her, got introduced and showed her their "homework" which was to color a race car, draw a picture and guess what happens to the car in the story.
After all the kids were introduced they all went upstairs to have a special snack. Chica was again shy and a little hesitant, but did go off without any tears. The parents discussed school matters and then left for a couple of hours.

The birthday boy taking a lead off first.
Michael throwing to first while falling to the ground. Tremendous effort.
Pitching from the mound.
Safe at first.
Another close call at first. Had to rely on my photo finish for the call - Josh was safe.
After a few intense innings we took a break for birthday festivities. Jack picked a Milwaukee Brewer's cake. He's intensely proud of his big cousin being drafted by them and playing in the minor leagues as a Brewer.
Silly swaying during the birthday song.
The whole crew posing for a picture in outfield. Unfortunately, Luke and Ben aren't in the picture. Thanks, T, for having the field looking so awesome!
PS - if anyone with any ties to the Red Sox see and appreciates this amazing field and can get it some attention, please comment! The field has been recognized locally but never by the Sox. I've contacted NESN before but they never followed through with it.
