Preschool Graduation...Hallelujah!

Dax was very sad that we decided to wait a year to send him to Kindergarten mostly because he didn't want to do another year of preschool. I had two different preschools fall through for him. One lady moved and another school decided to retire. I was very disappointed because I wanted him to have a good experience. We were able to find a spot at a preschool in our neighborhood which was great for walking! Dax was not in love with school. Some days were good days and some days were really bad days, but we made it through. And Seth and I loved going to the parties and on the field trips with Dax. Those were good times!

So Dax graduated from preschool (again)! He was not thrilled about graduation as you will see on his face and his demeanor on the following pictures and video. But Dax is SUPER excited to go to school with his brother next year. Hopefully Kindergarten will prove as amazing as he expects it to be. Otherwise it might be another long year.

Spring Sports

We have spent this Spring at the ballpark sometimes for baseball, sometimes for soccer. Mark played actual baseball this year which was very exciting. He loved it!!! I've never seen him so excited as when he was out playing baseball. He played in the infield, mostly 2nd or 1st, and he ended up being a pretty good hitter after mostly walking the first few games. Mark played with his two best friends on his team and I think that was the biggest reason he had so much fun! 

Dax played soccer with dad as coach again. He had a great little team and he is very speedy out on the soccer field. Dax loved having his dad coach his team. Mark and Dax had three games out of 8 that overlapped, so I missed some of Dax's game, but I didn't miss the rain. It rained for a lot of games this Spring!

Mark also played soccer. He played with his ninja turtle team for the 2nd year in a row. I love watching Mark being a leader out on the field. His teammates look to him for help and I hope that he will continue to grow into a leader as he gets older.

It seriously poured the entire game!

Grandpa Ockey is a great sport. He comes to all the games!!

Dax also played T ball this Spring. He wants to move on and play a more serious form of baseball, so luckily next year he can! He is a great little fielder and Dax swings hard every time because he thinks he is going to hit every ball off the tee out of the park!
