Baseball videos

Short videos of the boys in action at their baseball games this morning.
Trainboy's t-ball hit and run to first.

Dinoguy running to first. Video starts right after he hit it. He runs hard but is called out at the base.

Violin concert

We had a violin concert this month! There's another one next week. The boys have been practicing hard for the concert which includes solo pieces and group performances. I was the accompanist for the group, meaning Fixitman got to run the camera and hold Munchkin at the same time.
The videos aren't great - the sound isn't matched up to the violins and the sound quality isn't totally true. But here they are if you want to hear the boys play their solos. Hopefully next time we can get some of the group pieces recorded too.

Violin has been a wonderful thing for our family. There have been so many positives from having the boys learn. I am so glad we decided to try it out last year!

It is hot already! Trainboy asked me today if it was still spring. When I said yes, he said "But spring isn't supposed to be so hot!" Sorry honey. Where we live, it just is. These photos are from the park recently. The kids did play some, but I mostly hid in the shade. Thank goodness its cooler in the shade!

Trainboy's first t-ball game.

 Dinoguy's first baseball game.
In orange hat - Dinoguy's coach (me).

Photos all by Fixitman while keeping Munchkin from storming the field.

Baseball has been a really good experience so far. Both boys love it all. They ask when their next practice is, when their next game is and ask to practice more. The parents are all sportsmanlike and polite and things are good so far. I am doing my best but thankfully getting lots of help from other parents.

Wacky Wigglers

This great toy that Dinoguy received for Christmas has been Trainboys' favorite toy of late. He has been up early several mornings, singing to himself and building with them.  Here he built one called "pigtails". You can see it in motion in the video below.
