The Merry Month of May

I really think my mom used to say "The Merry Month of May."  Not sure what it's from.

After we returned from France, May brought longer, warmer days -- a wonderful Spring with no snow and very little rain. Warm, but not hot.  So different from the past few Mays!! Yea! 

All three boys played baseball and finally Nick had his own games to go to instead of being shuffled around to Marty and Chris' games. He still had to go to their games, but now he looked forward to playing at the park or watching their games because he was having fun on so many other nights at his own games.
Marty -- all the boys were red this year. Plenty of socks to go around!

Chris up to bat!
Nick's machine-pitch team.
Nick at bat!
Chillin' wating for the game to end.
Nick also played lacrosse and soccer.  Didn't really mean to have him in three sports at one time. Thought he wouldn't play soccer in the Spring because he was tiring of it in the Fall. But, when the season came, he had a renewed love for the game! Also thought lacrosse was only on Saturdays and it would be a good way for him to make more friends at his new school.  BUT, he had amazing coaches who actually held practice 3 times a week!  We didn't make it to many, but what he did go to he really liked. Just wasn't always in the mood to go.

Courtney also did lacrosse and had a great season playing Varsity. With all her soccer training, she was in great shape running up and down the field and defending players!
Finally, warmer days are here!
Christopher was playing in the new house being built next door and cut his leg on metal as he was jumping out the window. He had to get quite a few stitches and a couple of layers too. Grandma was in town -- it was nice to have her come with us to Instacare.
