Teeball isn't so fun, sorry Damon.  You're my guinea pig.  I definitely won't be signing my kids up for teeball anymore.  Damon sits in the field and picks up dirt and puts it in his mitt the whole time, kicks dirt around, is dangerous with a bat and seriously can't pay attention to the game.  Can't blame him, it's pretty painful to watch.  This past Saturday was their picture day.  I didn't want to pay $20+ for professional pictures, so I took some of my own with my crummy camera.  And guess what?  They turned out great, good enough that at least we can remember just how fun Teeball was.

HAHAHAHA!  Tyler and I laughed so hard at this picture.

Andee's Dance Recital

I signed Andee up for a dance class at our YMCA.  She loved it.  She was so fun to watch at practice.  I was so happy that they did a little recital.  She's such a sweet little girl.
Waiting for it to start

Receiving her "certificate of achievement".  I think I had the camera on a weird setting and this picture didn't turn out too well.  OOPS!

After refreshments the kids ran around like crazy people!

Your highness, Queen Katelynn (or at least that what she thinks)

"I'm so innocent, I follow all the rules"

"Only when I think Mom's looking, that is"  Nice try Damon, caught you red-handed.  They asked the kids not to jump off the stage, I think they mostly were thinking of the little ones getting hurt.  At least he got some good air on that jump:)

Memorial Day

Tyler had Memorial Day off!  YAY!  Knowing that, I signed up for our Lansdowne 5k.  I dragged the kids and Tyler along in the heat and humidity.  IT WAS SO HOT AND HUMID THAT DAY!  Our route ran through our little community and people were outside with their hoses spraying runners and it felt so good! At water stations I would grab a cup of water to dump on my head.  My goal was to run under 8:00 miles and I did...barely.  I ran 7:56 miles. Gotta do better next time. A friend of mine also ran, she's amazing.  She won over all for the women.  Then we watched a cute little Memorial Day parade.  I can't really remember the rest of the day, I think we just did yard work.  Fun, huh?

The kids so patiently waiting for mom

I actually got a medal!  I placed 2nd in my age group. I better kick it up a notch when I turn 30, because I wouldn't have gotten a medal if I was 30.

After the race.  Damon was pretty proud that I got a medal.   He kept insisting that I get the trophy.  Sorry bud, I'm not that cool.
