March 2016

In addition to returning to work, we had some other fun stuff going on in March.  First, the boys each got a new baseball helmet, which was very exciting!  A few weeks earlier, Jason had taken them to Johnny Mac's Sporting Goods and the boys each made a mental list of baseball/sports gear they wanted.  Jason told them they could earn the items one-by-one with good behavior, using our baseball charts.  Well, after they were SO well behaved during our marathon airport adventure on the way home from Florida, he took them that very night to get their new helmets.  They had earned it, big time!
Jack wrapped up his latest indoor soccer season in March.  This session they played at Tony Glavin in hopes of finding some greater competition.  Unfortunately they still clobbered most of the teams they played.  The boys loved it because they all got a lot of goals, but they definitely need to find the right league to challenge them a little more.  They had fun though, which is of course what matters.  Jack prefers indoor soccer to outdoor because the ball doesn't go out of bounds.

Here he is scoring a goal:
 And after the championship game - they were undefeated and won the league.

And one of Jack's biggest fans.
Also in March, Jack performed in the Kindergarten musical, "Zoosical the Moosical."  It was on a Wednesday evening in the high school theater, and it was so sweet!  They got to dress up like their favorite animal (Jack chose polar bear because he wanted something that stands on two legs like him.  Can't argue with that logic.) and they sang 9 songs relating to animals.  I wasn't sure how our shy guy would do but he got really into it.  We have a copy of the DVD with all the songs on it, but this one was my favorite:
My pictures turned out terrible because we were in the last row, but you get the idea.
The 5 kindergarten classes - Jack's is on the right
Our polar bear is in the back row
Jack's cheering section - all the grandparents plus Daddy & Charlie (and I had Nora in the carrier) 
Jack chose not the wear the hat we got him, but at least Charlie liked it
Jack, Jack and Nathan after their performance
And the little brothers: Logan, Charlie & Tyson
This is random, but one night Charlie joined us in the middle of the night, and I got a kick out of how he was sleeping when I got up in the morning.

Here's a little video of Charlie rocking out in the car...
We went to our buddy/neighbor Logan's 4th birthday party.  It was at a park and the theme was "hunting."  Our boys LOVED it - they got to wear their camo and shoot Nerf guns and bow and arrows.  They also did a scavenger hunt and a fire truck randomly showed up and the firemen handed out ice cream bars (not arranged by Logan's parents, they just happened to come by).  It was a fun party!

The boys both started their outdoor soccer games in March as well, so we had a busy month!!
