Thursday update

Okay, so no pictures this time, sorry! I did take a few shots this morning, but then I went ahead and finished piecing all the squares, and I just know that it'll be way more interesting once I start sewing all the squares together, so I'm waiting on the pictures. I have decided that tomorrow I'm going to buy the rotary cutter and mat. I had been trying to do this quilt without buying any new equipment, but the difference between using a tape measure and a 12.5" square ruler to measure out strips of fabric is like night and day, and I just know that the rotary cutter will make trimming the squares so much easier! See how I'm rationalizing spending money? I admit, I've kinda fallen off the no-spending wagon this month. I don't think I'm completely off the wagon--but I'm hanging off the side while my feet lightly brush the ground. *grin*.

Yesterday was Bobby's first teeball practice, and it was the cutest thing ever! (Can you hear my shouting?) I'm definitely going to bring a camera to the next practice, and I know the games will bring a new level of hilarity and cuteness to my life. Almost as exciting as Bobby's enthusiasm was his sweet big sisters cheering him on yesterday. It was ... well, cute, if you must know. It's so refreshing when siblings are nice and supportive of each other--a rare treat at this age! Let's hope the enthusiasm continues when we're going to games at 8:30 in the morning!

And to add to the spring time fun, Caroline has insisted that we sign her up for spring soccer. And I did--but only after Rob told her several times that she will have to participate (meaning "run around the field and not just stand there"). Seems some of the neighbors are playing this spring and she wants to get onto their team. I told her there's a good chance she'll be on another team and she was okay with that. The good thing about spring soccer is that there is no practice--just games on Sundays--and it only costs $40.00. Of course, now I feel like Caitlin is missing out on something. Shouldn't she get to do a spring sport? In theory, yes. In reality, she's not asking to play, and we can't be in two places at once. So no soccer for Caitlin. But our spring is going to be busy with a game each weekend day. I just hope the weather decides to turn springy (meaning WARM) sometime soon!

Can't wait to see pictures! Oh I remember when Aron did t-ball...it was adorable!!

(And usually one of our three is activity-less at a time. It's fine with us...when they all start, we're going to lose our minds!!!)
