Week In Review

Although they had to convince and cajole me, the kids wanted to learn how to play tennis.  So a trip to the tennis courts and an unexpected time lapse later the kids learned to hit the ball consistently.  It ended up being a lot of fun and made me think of all the backyard baseball and basketball games of my childhood, the Family Home Evening touch football games, along with a slew of games I'm pretty sure my grandma made up and have been passed down and played repeatedly. 

Market on the Square in downtown Manheim which is an event that hosts a pie eating contest, tricycle racing amongst the National Honors Society, the local fire company, and random other group teams enter, local vendors selling both food and crafts, and many kid friendly activities which change from year to year.
A trip to Grandma's house and while driving in the car I was allowed to catch this rare moment of peace between the two younger boys.
An end of school year party with the Steven Courtney Band - who rock by the way and I would totally recommend them for an assembly or party function.

A visit from Aunt Elizabeth filled with snack runs to spoil the kids rotten.  She allowed Issac to pick one drink and one treat.  And it was a biological chemistry that pulled this child to Mountain Dew.  I don't know that he has ever even drunk it, but he knew intirsically that is what he wanted and some Hubba Bubba Bubble Tape. 
And lots of rain!  But that didn't stop the playdates or the walks around the neighborhood.  We just added umbrellas and I got to catch Wyatt and his buddy's huddled walking - a new photo favorite of mine.
