Baseball is a BIG kids sport

don't you think? 

Maybe because we skipped T-ball.  
(It was for ages 4-5...way too young in my opinion) 

We knew Thomas couldn't
handle the downtime. 

But now he can...
and so, his baseball career has begun.  

And man is he happy...
and focused!

Still working on teamwork and sportmanship, 
but I'm telling you.....

this first practice & game went about 
1000x better than we expected. 

Did I mention he is HAPPY?!

Make Way for Ducklings

When I was pregnant with Thomas,
a dear friend gave us this wonderful book
Flash forward 6 1/2 years,
 we took the T with Big T 
to the Boston Public Garden 
to go see the ducklings
 and ride the swan boats
Of course, on a day trip to the city, 
you can always happen upon 
other exciting opportunties.

A pinterest project...finally!

Well - sort of.

I saw some items like these on pinterest...
and it got my creative juices flowing.

So one recycled glass jar 
(pretty sure it was pickles)
one ball of twine....
and lots of this -
(my new favorite thing - 
however did I go 40 years without using it?)

and voila!
I like the very natural feel of it....
especially with the new organizing
 basket on my desk. 
Now I have a nice caddy for my
 pens and pencils ....
though not nearly as cool as

Cool New Caddy...built by Daddy

(sorry, just couldn't resist the awful 
but obvious rhyme!!)
For our budding artist, writer, poet, list-maker-like-his-mama. 
I designed it
Paulo built it
Big T painted it
I'm one lucky gal to be married to a man who has the talent and tools to build the cool things I think up.
