Owen got his first haircut yesterday!










I didn't really want to get his hair cut because I love, love, loved his curls. But everywhere we went, people would ask 'how old is she?', 'what's her name?' and comment on my pretty little girl. I couldn't take it anymore! So off to the barbershop we went. He was a good sport, sat still the whole time, never cried. He wanted a few hugs from Mommy during the process and I was happy oblige. It's weird how I walked into there with a baby and came out with a little boy. He really does look like a little boy now.
Softball has begun and yesterday was Samantha's second game for her school's modified team. It was a great game! In one of the pictures you can see Sam slid into third base... from our point of view of course she was safe but she was called out. Ugh. The coach tried to fight that the third baseman was blocking the base but the ump wouldn't listen. Oy. The game went into an extra inning but they lost by one.
Two proud moments for us: Will is STUDENT OF THE MONTH for April in technology class! We are so happy for him, as this is a first. I'm not surprised that it is for technology because it is his favorite class. He stayed after school often to work with the teacher, and was so far ahead in his work that he was able to build a cool robot! I love that he loves the class and has found something else he excels in.
And, Samantha was asked to played for the NIGHTMARE softball team, and also the EG Travel Team. We turned down both, as we already told her that playing for two teams was enough. But it's cool that she was asked.
Colby is in a bit of trouble and has had most of the contents of his room taken out again. But on a positive note, it looks so nice that's I'm seriously wanting to declutter our whole house!
Not much else to report, just business as usual.
