Baseball

We are in our second season of baseball and we are loving it. It has kept us busy, especially with school starting. This season is more serious than tball, but it's fun.
 
So far we have played three games and won two of them. Easton is having fun playing with some of the boys from his tball team.
Sneak peek of our baseball pictures!

First Day of Kindergarten!


Summer is officially over and our laid back, no schedule lifestyle has been replaced with the routine of school and baseball. I like the structure and routine that comes with going back to school, but do miss summer days at home. I'm lucky to get to have the best of both worlds as a teacher.
 
We have officially completed two weeks at our new school. Easton and I are on the same campus and I absolutely LOVE being there with him. It's been busy, fun, exhausting, and exciting all at the same time.
 
Before school started, we read lots of books about going to Kindergarten and the night before he told me he was a lot nervous and a little excited.

 
As I knew he would, he LOVES Kindergarten! He's asked to go both Saturday's since school started. HA! I believe he's beginning to make friends, which makes me so happy. Easton can be shy and not put himself out there so that was my biggest worry.

It's so incredibly bittersweet for him to be in Kindergarten. I was fine on the first day of school (mainly because I was so busy being teacher, too), but I did shed a few tears the night before. I love seeing him grow up, but oh how I wish I could make time stand still.

Last full day of summer = SWIMMING!


On my last full day of summer, I took Easton to a nearby YMCA to swim. It wasn't crowded at all so we enjoyed about 3-4 hours of swimming time.
Easton, of course, loved every minute of it!


 So long, summer! It's been fun!

End of Summer Randomness

Our summer has officially ended and school is starting this week. I wanted to post a picture of some of our last minute summer fun!
 
Easton finished round two of swim lessons and he made SO much progress in this class. He was so eager to jump in, he was going underwater, he no longer needs/wants goggles, and he can swim pretty well independently. At the end of each class, he had to jump in and swim back to the side unassisted. He ROCKED it!
We've made a few last minute trips to the library. He got dinosaur books the last time and asked me if he could lay down to read them while we were there. I just had to snap this picture. He didn't know I was taking it, but it is just so sweet. 
Then I saw the picture on the left on my TimeHop app and just had to make a collage. I pray he is always a book lover!
Of course we've had time for silly pictures! Story of my life!
Fall ball has began and boy is it ever more serious than tball! It's a huge jump from tball to the 5-6 year old league. We are hoping it will go well when school starts this week. Nothing like baseball practice on the first day of school. 
Easton enjoyed sleeping late one day this week while I was at preplanning. We were so thankful that Grandad came down and stayed home with Easton all week. I don't know what we would have done without him!
I have one more last day of summer post to share soon! Easton starts KINDERGARTEN this week. We would love your prayers during his transition. I am so excited to be at the same school with him!

Discover the Dinosaurs

A few weeks ago we saw a commercial about an event in Atlanta called Discover the Dinosaurs. Luckily it was the next day and it was close by! It probably wasn't worth the money we spent, but Easton enjoyed it and thought it was SO cool! He is ALL ABOUT dinosaurs right now so it was great for him! 


Most of it was dinosaurs set up that you could look at and read something about. After we went through that section, we saw a digging area where kids could dig for bones. 

They also had three dinosaurs for kids to ride so that was neat, too.


They had a large gift shop with tons of dinosaurs toys, books , and more. Past that was tons of inflatables that Easton enjoyed!
 
Overall, it was a cute event for this dinosaur lover!
