Schooool's Out.For.Summah!

Schooooool's Out.For.Evah!
No, not really.
He's not down with the whole home-schooling thing. I know: I asked him....

Anywhooooo....on the last day of second grade, Gage was thrilled to bring three buddies home from school with him (that car pick up was LONG fun). These boys had a blast swimming until it was go-home time....

Gage even let his little sister enjoy a bit of the fun.... She didn't last long....

She's a "Helper"

Eliette prides herself on being useful and never being in the way. She's a "helper," if you will....

She helps with dishes....

 She helps organize magazines....
 She helps Jess at the bank....
 She helps with laundry...

She's just QUITE the helper these days....


Almost 40.

In the Spring, the man I married turned "almost forty." Well, in fact, Hubby says that once you turn 38, when people learn your age they say, "Oh, I didn't know you were almost 40." I believe it's started to bother him...a little. Anyway---I've done my part to reassure him that when you turn 39, you REALLY ARE ALMOST FORTY! He doesn't find it all that amusing. Clearly, it's hilarious.

 How did we celebrate? I did exactly what he wanted: I made my baked potato soup and he LOVES it. We invited his parents over, and had dinner and cake. I made the cake too. Oh, and sweet corn bread. Hubby loved it all. {Yaaaay!}

 Part of Hubby's gift from me was a lottery ticket bouquet. We're not all that into lottery tickets. Never really think to buy them....but, it was fun! It was just unexpected and random---and it was fun. Gage loved doing the "scratchers" with Daddy.
Guess how much $$ Hubby got: "Almost 40 dollars." No lie!!!! I bought $39 worth of tickets, and he won $39. So amusing! It ended up being completely free entertainment.

So, Hubby, Happy Almost 40. You'll always be older than me.

My Baseball Baby....

Early in May, Gage's baseball team played in a tournament, and they all got to "go pink" with their jerseys, and honor someone with their jerseys. Though the jerseys were pink, it could be any type of cancer or any childhood illness b/c the jerseys were for Strikes Against Cancer, as well as a Scottish Rite benefit tournament. Anywhoooo....we were very excited to honor our very own Darnin with Gage's jersey.

Such a sweet boy!

....aaaaaand, with baseball being his LIFE these days---he was in need of a room makeover. {Can I get an AMEN? I was soooooo sick of the camo room. He loved it, but it was NOT my cup-o-tea!}

We had a lot of fun making the baseball room, and Gage was so excited to have a "new room."

Photobomb, courtesy of Daddy! Gotta love 'em.

Now, will all of this baseball going on in our lives....we can't fail to mention Gage's #1 fan:

Non Verbal Communication.

Please and thank you, all in one look.
THIS is the look that gets this little girl anything she wants....

Way to go, Baby Chris!

Baby Chris had his tonsils and adenoids out earlier this year. It actually happened on a day when I was at work, and at the hospital where I was working. Oh, how the sun, moon, and stars aligned.

I also need to add that he was SUCH an awesome patient, and rocked his recovery! What a trooper. He was eating popsicles and drinking like a champ in the days following his surgery and didn't have any of the same frustrations we had with Gage's recovery.

Way to go little bro!

First Championship Ring...

April 27, 2014: Gage got his first championship ring for placing in a baseball tournament. He was (and still is) sooooo proud.

I would have blogged about this sooner and shared the picture, but it was trapped in my iphone.

Seriously, I'm sooooo behind on blogging. Forgive me!

Second Grade Awards.

Each year, Gage has end of the year awards. Gage was thrilled last year when his sister attended, but she was sooooo little and brand new (about 2 weeks, I think). This year, she's much older, and much more interactive!
He was thrilled to share this day with her, and she was just thrilled to see Brother (who happens to be one of her favorite people).

He loves to show her off. What a sweet big brother.

Some of Gage's school work that was on display.....

{And you don't have to go to school and that's great!} hahahaha. Honest boy.

All the kids got a candy award. Gage's was the Snickers award for always making his peers *snicker*. Funny boy.

Now, we've got ourselves a third grader. Goodbye, Second Grade! He's so ready to move on. He says that he's not going to miss second grade at all.
