Hard to tell if they’re any bigger, since Oliver is standing funny, but they at least…have more hair?

Yesterday was the end of the year ceremony, which I decided to just watch and enjoy rather than try to photograph every moment. Just as well, since these were the only pictures I could get of the kids:

(If you look hard, you can see Oliver waving to me from the back row.)

After school today, the boys were being super cute saying bye to their friends and teachers.

Wedding pics

Not mine, but my cousin’s. I actually went to two weddings that weekend, but I didn’t take very many at the first. Probably because my feet hurt too bad. They’re still healing. I wore slightly lower heels to my cousin’s wedding, plus I drank most of the gin in Baton Rouge, so due to less foot pain, I was able to take more pictures. Here you go. It was a gorgeous wedding, and super fun.

Pretty cushions to sit on with pretty candles in between. No one got set on fire, fortunately.

It is possible I went slightly overboard here, thanks to aforementioned gin.

And so it begins. Baseball season, so you’ll have to see pictures from games at least twice a week (games are more often now) until the end of June. It’s just so cute, I can’t help it. I did feel kind of bad for Miles when we went up to bat at the first game and I yelled, “GOOO MILESY-BEAR!” I got some chuckles from the other parents when I realized maybe I shouldn’t yell that now that he’s playing Real Baseball with Big Kids, and I quickly amended my yell to, “I MEAN BIG MILES!”

Anyway, from this game, you’ll get a picture from the dugout, during the after-game chat from the coach.

More from the baseball game

It’s hard to believe we’re starting the third season of baseball in our decidedly non-sporty household. Well, Miles is. The last two seasons were t-ball, so this is for-real-this-time baseball. Like, no tee involved. And there are rules. And they keep score. And they wear belts with their baseball pants.

Miles was pretty anxious about starting without his brothers, so before the first game yesterday, I got him a bag for his equipment. Once he was all decked out in his full uniform and had his brand new bag, he seemed to gain a huge amount of confidence, and he did great at the game. He hit the ball both times he was at bat and even scored a run!

After the game was over, he was diligently putting his stuff back in his bag, and couldn’t figure out how to unclip the bag from the fence. One of the older boys on the team helped him, which was just so sweet. I’m used to him being one of the bigger boys, but in this league, he’s one of the youngest, and it’s so nice to see the older kids taking the littler ones under their wing.

Next game is Friday evening. Hope the novelty hasn’t worn off by then!
