Little Big League

People often ask, "what have y'all been up to?"  The answer lately has usually been, going to Henry's baseball games.

The kids rotate positions, but catcher creates the best photo op.

Action shot! Let's all just assume that immediately after this was taken, Henry caught the ball, blocked the plate, and tagged out a baserunner sliding into home.

"Take a good look, fans. Take a good look. Remember the stance...and the swing. You're not likely to see his like again."

Claire is Henry's biggest fan but when he's not batting, she has ways of keeping herself busy...

(Those are smiley faces she's drawing, FYI.)

...while wearing leggings and Mardi Gras beads, natch...

Meanwhile, at the end of our driveway, Henry and Jacqueline embarked on a manhole beautification project.  

(And also, if you ever glimpse this coming down the road, it's probably best to give it a very wide berth.)

The Blues

Claire either did some finger painting over the weekend with Mindy (who took this picture), or she exercised her right to vote in a newly democratic Middle Eastern country.  Either way, it looks like she was having fun!
