Jack played t-ball for the first time last month. In fact, it was his first team sports experience outside of school. I won’t say it was all fun and games…there was one night where we both left crying after a long and completely frustrating protest of t-ball playing. It was one of those moments that leaves you, as a parent, wondering why you are even doing said activity in the first place. It drove me to read parenting articles and blogs, which led me to a clearer perspective of my goals and a plan to use in navigating this obstacle moving forward.

And, I’m relieved to say that, aside from that one night, we all 3 had a blast meeting new friends and Jack loved being part of a team and learning something new. He was quite serious about it at times- check out that look of pure determination when he’s running the bases with his tongue sticking out, just as his Auntie used to do- and there were moments where he was completely the opposite of serious- when he twirled around in the field with his glove atop his head or when he sat on the base cones and pretended they were horses. In other words, he acted just a t-ball player should.

This week Jack starts a new t-ball league, with actual games, that lasts through August. We are looking forward to more fun, more new friends, and more mastery of skills. And, of course, the most exciting things- trophies and end of the season parties (with baseball cupcakes)!

These sweet freckles make me weak in the knees.

I’m a little behind posting the weekly photo, so I’m playing catch up this week. Thank you Aunt Laura for this incredible picture of Jack! She took it at Seattle Center and sent it to us while we were spending the weekend away (We did a date weekend at a winery…with a pool! More to come on that…). This picture made us smile big!

A Photo of Jack: 19/52

At the park on Sunday, Jack requested that we practice t-ball instead of playing on the playground! This was after we spent much of our time at the Saturday UW baseball game throwing the ball back and forth and teaching him how to throw “by his ear”. I love watching new interests blossom! And, I think he rocks a baseball hat!

It’s evident that we just don’t take enough photos of the three of us together since the last family photo picture was posted in January!

So thankful to Audrey for capturing this sweet family moment of the three of us at Natalie’s birthday party last weekend. After playing and eating cake, we needed a little quiet book reading and this couch was the perfect snuggle spot.
The three of us have not lived normal day to day life together in more than 6 weeks (!!!) because of night float work, Florida vacation, and multiple conferences. David returned home from a conference last night and, I will speak for all of us to say that we are over the moon with excitement to be together again! It’s official, three is more fun than two!

On Sunday, we spent the day north of Seattle frolicking in the muddy fields, soaking up the sunshine, and marveling at the gorgeous tulips, hyacinths, and daffodils that dotted the fields. I love the farmlands up north- such a bucolic sight of barns, tractors, neatly orchestrated rows of flowers, and horses dotting the land in every direction until your eyes stop at the mountains along the horizon, framing it all in.

We played hide and go seek among the trees and walked gingerly through the muddy fields trying not to get too dirty. It was one of those breathtakingly beautiful spring days. I’m glad we spent it outdoors and in the country air.

On the way home, we stopped at one of our favorite places, Snow Goose Produce, for some delicious ice cream and to covet the African handmade baskets that I need to find a use for to justify a purchase. Speaking of snow geese- we saw hundreds floating and flying together inches above the still barren crop fields. From a distance, they looked like a group of paper airplanes floating in the breeze. I wish I would have snapped a photo from the car window.
