Our Biggest Baseball Boy

It's that time of year again for Allen's baseball games. This year Allen is playing in the pony league. His team's name is the Dodgers. Yes, I know the Dodgers aren't doing so hot but Allen's team is awesome. This year all the kids on his team hit pretty well and seem to really want to be there. Pony league is a bit more competitive and so they always play the game the way it should be played (with outs and all). All the kids seem to really like this because then they have a reason to pay attention when they are in the field. Allen is about the second best batter on the team. There is this one kid that just rockets the ball every time. He is for sure the best player they have. Anyways Allen is loving it and we all are enjoying seeing him play.

They usually sit in the line up when it's there turn to bat. Allen is always the one that gets the rest of his team to cheer on the person up to bat.

I think Allen's favorite position is catcher. He looks so cute in all the pads. He likes it because then he is a part of every pitch.

Sorry, I don't know why they are sideways but there he is in position waiting for the pitch.

Carter loves going to the games. This year is a lot nicer because he has a little friend to play with. They cheer and eat popcorn when they are not running all over playing.

Evan has been a real champ at the games. It's past his bed time but he still smiles for everyone and makes the game a lot more fun.

And here is our all star running his inside the park homerun. All of us got super excited. Especially Carter (sorry about how loud it is).

Duck Fun

A lot has happened since I posted last but unfortunately our camera broke. So you will not get to see any pics from that time. But we have a new one now and are back in business. Some of what you missed out on is that Allen had an awesome report card. His teacher was very pleased with the work he has done and said " Allen is already doing work at a 1st grade level." We are so proud of him and all his hard work. Speaking of school, Carter just started his first year in preschool. We are loving the preschool he is at and it has already helped him improve so much. All our boys are doing very well. We took a quick trip to see Grandma and Grandpa Meagher two weeks ago. It was so much fun to get to visit with them. We only got to go for the day but it just made us remember how much we miss being able to see them whenever we want. It's hard to live so far away. Well that's the highlights of what you missed and now on to the next thing. My niece Natosha bought a duck the other day and Katrina brought it over when she visited us last week. He is super cute and it was a good experience for the kids. The boys have been getting more and more nervous around animals. So when she brought the baby duck out one boy screamed and ran and the other jumped behind someone. Yes all that for a little baby duck. As the day went on and everyone was playing with him. All the boys started to loosen up and have fun with him too. You probably could have guessed that Carter was the one who screamed and ran. In this picture much time had passed and he was at the point where it was okay as long as he was in the tub.
I think this is right around the time both boys first touched the duck. Good job boys!
Allen was a little worried that the duck was going to bite him. By the end of the day Allen was letting the duck nibble on his fingers and laughing.
Of course mom had to show the boys that this thing was okay to touch. Well, and I just love baby ducks.

Evan even got a chance to pet the duck. All the excitement makes me think we need to get some kind of pet soon. Although I have no desire what so ever to have one right now. I think the boys might need the experience. By the end of the day though the boys were sad to see him go home. Which give us some hope.

Finn Nathan Tulett

We are so excited to have a new baby in the family. My brother Nate and his wife Carlee had a baby boy on May 1st named Finn Nathan Tulett. We love him already and can't wait to get to meet him in person.
