The 3rd grade took a field trip to Desoto Caverns at the end of the year and I got to chaperone. It was a cool place with so many fun things to do. I love getting to go with Isabel to school events like that!
I felt very loved this Mother's Day! First of all, Will and the other 1st graders had a Mother's Day tea that was so special. The kids sang songs, read poems they wrote about their moms and even served us snacks and lemonade!
On Mother's Day weekend Isabel, Grams and I got pedicures and then Josh and the kids helped me pick out some pictures to hang in our house. Sunday we went to church and had lunch with Nana. Then we played outside all afternoon and Josh grilled hamburgers. It was a great day!
This was a tough baseball season for Will. They did not win a single game. They came close a couple of times and tied one game but no wins. Thankfully this didn't seem to bother the boys too much but we felt bad that they never got to enjoy a win.
After the season was over the playoffs started. Because his team was the worst, they had to play the best team so we were all dreading it. However Will's team won!!! They played so well and were winning by a lot the whole game. I loved seeing that huge smile on his face after the win!
Field day is always one of my favorite days. Partly because it means summer is close but also because I get to watch Isabel and Will interact with their friends and teachers in an environment I don't usually get to see them in.
This year the weather was perfect and the kids had a blast. Each year Isabel worries beforehand thinking she won't like the games but every year she has fun. Because it's their last field day at OMES the 3rd grade makes class tie dyed shirts to wear that adds to the fun!
Over spring break we took a trip to Tuscaloosa to tour Bryant Denny Stadium. It was so much fun! We got to see the locker room, the president's sky box, media rooms, the field and so much more! Will thought every second of it was amazing and Isabel liked it but wanted to know where all the cheerleaders were!
the locker room!
Will was super excited to find Derrick Henry's locker
He found Amari Cooper too!
touching Bear Bryant's nose like the players do before every game
Will loved seeing the tunnel to the field
Getting to go on the field was definitely a highlight for all of us
Isabel was excited to see where her favorite teacher, Mrs. Smith, cheered while in college
Easter Sunday is always a special day celebrating the resurrection of Jesus and spending time with family. As the kids get older, they understand more and more of this day and I love the conversations that we get to have with them.
The day before Easter we went to Valleydale's annual Easter egg hunt. Fortunately the weather was perfect! As always the kids had a great time and we left with lots of eggs, candy, goodies and fun memories.
Ready for fun

how Isabel feels about finding a egg with no candy inside
Checking out their candy. Because Isabel has an expander she can't eat any chewy candy so she and Will made some trades
