The boys begged me for almost a whole week before I finally took them to the farmer's market for pumpkins.  No I am not that mean of a parent, it seems like every day that it was super cold and drizzly they that is was a good day to  get pumpkins.  The day I suggested getting the pumpkins is was still cold but the sun was out...much better if you ask me.  

The House is TOO quiet

So after lunch this noon I head to the computer to touch base with my cyber-worlds... Facebook, blogger, and Pinterest. Soon I noticed that the house was awfully quiet for having four boys.  So I went to check up on them and this is what I found.   

 Four boys
 in four different corners 
reading books...

 and there's only one reason why I can imagine this is happening....
 because someone needed a nap. 
Happy Sunday y'all!!!!

Pumpkin Math

One of the many fun things that our boys have done in kindergarten is Pumpkin Math.  It's a math lesson where a bunch of us moms come into the classroom with some pumpkins and the kindergartens done math...estimating and then actually counting by 1's and 10's.  Seriously when did kindergarten become so advanced; I think I just learned numbers and what order they went in when I was in kindergarten. 

The group is going through their booklets doing their estimating. 

Writing down his estimate 

Look at all those seeds!!!  How many do you think there are??? 

Just one posed picture for mom 

 Connor's group gone done early so their carved their pumpkin.

"I said only ONE posed picture, mom" 

"I'm not going to look at you, mom" 

Mrs. Boomsma reading a story to finish the school day.  Love this teacher!!!!

Sprinkle Shirt

I love to make things for my boys when I'm not sewing for others.  Unfortunately it doesn't happen often...mainly, because they are boys and there just isn't that many cute handsome thing for them.  Then I came across this on pinterest,  the sprinkle shirt.  I made one for Connor and he loves of his favorites at the moment.  I have also made one for Lucas and he's taking order for them at school.... but first, I still need to work on Austin's. 

More soccer

When I did my last post about soccer I completely forgot to include Connor so I just had to do another post.  This is really Connor's 2ND year playing soccer, but it's the first year that he will actually play with his teammates.  He loves to just run around on the field looking like he is playing really hard. I think his favorite part of the game is the snack he gets after the game or maybe it's getting to drink tons of Gatorade even though he's not even thirsty.  

Oh, the joys of 5 year old's playing soccer....we do lots of laughing during the game.

Just for Kicks

We are coming to the end of another soccer season.  It's been a great season, the weather has been great and the boys are all loving the game this year.  No one is crying when we get to the fields or when they suppose to be putting on their uniforms.  No one is bring stubborn and not wanting to get on the field and give it their all.  It's been fun watching them all grow in their skills.
