Spring, Sprang, Sprung




We are doing our second round of swim lessons this spring. We are taking from the same instructor as last year. This sweet child refuses to float. So, we are bribing him and threatening him into it...or at least attempting it. He is a stubborn and cute little love. We have a trip to the Dells planned this summer, a beach trip or two and lots of swimming at Nana's and our pool we go to here. Randall told him he will put him in a sweater and make him stay inside all summer if he doesn't float!!! Ha 


We 3 Lee's went to a neighboring town to pick strawberries recently. This is our third year to do this together. We picked so fast this time. Henry is getting old enough to pick and not run through the rows. It was so nice to have a calm pick this time! Ha.  The crop was wonderful this year. We will enjoy our two buckets for a while. 


This warmer weather means cookouts with friends. I love these 4 faces in our backyard. Their parents are fun friends of ours. We will all be swimming before long at the Elks. We all had our hubs become Elks a few years ago so we could use their pool. I started the trend and I  am now trying hard to start another one...lol! I don't dig a crowded public pool so much. We girls daydream about Randall putting a pool in our backyard. The girls have the snack and drink menu all planned out because the Elks pool serves everything including tang slushies....who knew?! Until Henry floats and becomes Michael phelps, we will be elking it up!!

   
Look at this guy. T ball season is underway and my Pirate is loving it. I love seeing him in a uniform. It is truly the cutest thing. He is #3 like Babe Ruth and he is sort of built like The Babe, so I have high hopes! Ha. 


This is our first team sport. I did not realize the time commitment. Oh my word. Randall is in the thick of planting here there and everywhere so I have become "that mom"....you know the t shirt wearing, snack organizing mom. I'm so ashamed of myself!! ;) 
And yes, those are my fingernails. Can you believe it?! I'm rather proud and will scratch anyones  back within reach to show them off! Freaky fingernail lady. Randall had to ask me to stop using them so much. He said it was getting out of hand!!! Lol 


Nothing cuter than this picture. Henry and Eli (also sitting by him at picnic table in above photo) hand in hand after their first game, with David and Randall. It's so neat to open Henry up to new experiences. It has been a real experience for us too! 


I had to share this fuzzy photo. Randall drove in from a near by plot to watch Henry play this week. It was so sweet for him to do that. He is so crunched for time at each location with a crew of guys  in tow at each one. He had to go back to finish after the game and took Henry with him. Randall is such a wonderful daddy. He and Henry are a tight pair. 
This is Henry and Nick in front of the planter. Henry rode the planter and he and Nick talked on the Walkie talkies. He came home telling me Nick's dad's name and all sorts of random facts about Nick. It made me laugh...and I'm sure Nick laughed too. I'm glad Randall works with great guys who love our little guy. 

This spring is crazy, but every spring is at our house. I tend to forget the battle scars year after year, and end up surprised at it. Randall has no idea how I forget, but I do, yet I always survive it and live to tell about it...laughter and all. Now throw being a Realtor in spring time into the mix and you have to laugh or you might cry, and ain't nobody got time for that!!!
