I do not usually release butterflies, but the kids wanted me to.  Megan was supposed to put the butterfly on my hand, but she decided to place it on my nose.  It tickled horribly!

Then the kids all teased me, “your supposed to watch the butterfly Momma”.

Don’t Let Pink Number 7 Get the Ball!

Megan has been enjoying soccer a lot this year.  Not only is Audrey a fun coach who teaches the girls a lot, Megan has a lot of friendly girls on her team that she is becoming friends with.

Monday was an especially fun game for her.  She made the very first goal…then the second and the third.  She tried hard to assist some of the other girls to make goals.  We started saying, “don’t let pink number 7 get the ball!”  Megan would give us a dirty look before enjoying the game again. A few balls come straight at Megan and it would have been silly not to try to make a goal, which she did successfully.

By the end of the game, Megan had made at least 5 goals and three other girls made at least one goal each.  A few of the girls made some great almost goals.

This could turn into a very dangerous team!

Jump in Puddle


Today is jump in a puddle and splash your friend day.  Since the snow is completely melted, we thought it would be easier to find some great puddles, but the wind dried most of them up.  We did find a huge one at the park though.

People walking their dogs either smiled at the kids playing, or gave us strange looks.  We left only after Adrian and Megan were soaking wet and their boots were full of water.
