So you think you can dance?

Tyler has been so excited for his dance performance. His class (along with 3 other classes) have been practicing for this kindergarten dance a number of months. It has been a total secret. We could not coerce Tyler into showing us any of his dance moves. I did get out of him that his partner was Joe. I guess boys are usually partnered with girls, but because of the excess of boys, Tyler and Joe got to be partners. Tyler told me that he must have been pretty good because only he (and Joe) got to be partners with a boy. It was a fun and cute evening. Mike even danced a little. Too bad I didn't get a picture of that because it was a miracle.

Friday Favorite

My talented friend Tammy is amazing. Seriously, she comes up with the cutest ideas. Here is her latest

You can send her a picture of your child, and she will put the silhouette on a t-shirt. I think it is adorable! Here is the link:

Austin's stache

Austin gave himself a sweet little Hitler stache in permanent marker. We are so proud.

This is what Austin does at t-ball...

He puts on a show as a bucket head
and tells me about all the dogs he sees.

He's really into it if you can't tell. He also is starting swim lessons tommorow. Can't wait to see how that goes. He's not really a child up for new adventures. We shall see. The good news is that he is going to nursery now, sans crying. It's all about baby steps with this one.

Take me out to the ball game

I gather that 4S Ranch takes their baseball pretty seriously. Saturday was opening day, and it was pretty much an all day affair. Counting a long (okay and boring) opening ceremony, pictures and Tyler's first game, we were doing t-ball stuff all day. Tyler enjoyed his day, and his new baseball outfit. He even played pretty well for his first time. We were proud. I have to admit the best part of the day for Tyler was wearing his new (ahem) "peanut" protector. He was so excited about this part of the uniform, I'm not sure why...? He wore that "peanut" protector until bed-time, when his mom made him take it off.

His team is the Cardinals

Testing the strength oh his "peanut" protector, sorry if you are easily offended. I think we have a new Michael Jackson on our hands
What an arm

All better

The herpangina must be gone because Austin is once again eating his favoite treat- Nestle Quick powder. He scoops it up with a spoon and eats just the powder. I know, it's nasty. We caught him doing this without any help.

Austin has been having trouble eating. Everytime he tried to eat he screams in pain. I thought he had a canker sore from falling off the chair. However, when we woke up Sunday, Mike noticed multiple sores in his mouth. So he took him into Urgent Care. Austin was diagnosed with a virus called (drumroll please)- HERPANGINA. I promise, the sores are only in his mouth. That name is enough to make anyone sick!
