Time to Play Ball

It's that time of year. 
Baseball season starts for the boys this weekend.
Grandpa spent his last morning here giving the boys some tips and helping them warm up.
Looks like they remembered a few things from last year.
We needed to get them new supplies.
And they looked so great we had a little photo session.
Let's play ball!

Not Long Now

The last 18 days have just flown by ... and it's only 3 more until we should be seeing little chicks.
Fingers crossed that we have a safe hatching for all the little birds.

Guest Talk with Adam (the handsome one).

Hello I'm Adam (the handsome one). I'm doing a guest post today.

I guess I'll talk about one of my programs. It's called SHEP. In SHEP my brother and I are  doing two projects each. One is about an animal of our choice the other is about French explorers (completely random French explorers). I've already finished my animal project. It was about pigs (my favorite animal). I had to decide between pigs or turtles. Turtles because they are my second favorite animal. But pigs are just toOooOOoOOOooOOOooOooooOo AWESOME!!! I think I'll get good grades but I'm not sure until I get the project back.

What is your favorite kind of pizza? Mine is meat lovers. Please tell me what your favorite pizza is in the comments : ).

We are also hatching chickens. So far we have seven out of eight. One died yesterday : (. Let's take a moment to honor him................................................ he was a good egg. The first time we candled them we had eight of eight. But yesterday one was just slush... bye bye chickie.

O.k. Let's talk about hockey. Montreal is completely destroying us they have won three of three games so far. COME ON OTTAWA!!! Unlikely that were going to win four games in a row but it's possible...I hope. Funny how every time Subban touched the puck the entire crowd booed him. Also I liked the narrators comment on Weise "The unlikeliest  hero was the hero" or "Really this loser scored?" or something like that. Sucks that Montreal has won three games now but, "oh well".
Here's a peek at the older brother in the background.

The Outdoor Woods

Even though the weather isn't perfect we made our way out to the woods.
We started off with several layers of clothing. But it didn't take long for the boys to get a fire going.

After finding an iron hook (who knows where it came from) E fashioned a pulley for the cooler.
And for some reason, M climbed a tree. Way high into a tree.
Then E said, "What would an apple taste like if I roasted it?"
The answer?
Delicious!! Thanks for the snack E.
We all enjoyed your roasted apple snacks.
