I've been a little lax (again) about pulling pictures off of my camera, so there's one rather old one here before I get to this weekend. Here's a picture of Carter from a couple weeks ago, chasing bubbles around the yard. He got one of those giant bubble wands in his Easter basket, and he gets so excited when I start waving it around to create giant bubbles for him to chase. One day both he and Jacob got into the act, and it was hilarious. Of course that day I didn't have my camera handy. I brought it out a few days later, but it was hard to get a good action shot with the bubbles in my hands!

Jacob's game went pretty well. He seemed a lot happier than he usually is with practice, and he almost scored a goal. The ball went in the net, but I think the play had actually been called before he shot due to an injury on the field. Bummer. But he looks so cute in his stuff, doesn't he?
|My little #8...still one of the smaller kids, but he did really well keeping his stick up and paying attention.|
We headed out to Buffalo right after practice and got to my parents' in time for dinner. Afterward Carter hopped in the wagon and we took advantage of the nice day and late sunset by going to the playground around the corner. Carter decided he didn't want to swing or go on the equipment (no idea why) so we spent most of the time watching Jacob play basketball.

|I love that smile so much...and he loved his wagon ride!|
|He really puts his whole body into it, huh?|

In the meantime, Jacob and his cousins were playing kick ball. I got this smile from him when I asked, and you can see how much his front teeth have grown in over the past month. They're halfway in, and a little crooked. I'm really hoping they straighten out more as his other teeth come in!
And I love this picture because it's just the pure joy on his face during the kick ball game. I can't really get a posed smile like that, so I'll take them when I can get them...
It was a pretty late night and we've had a busy start to our week. I took Jacob to the doctor last night (and had to wrangle both boys!) because his rash hasn't gotten any better. The doctor isn't sure what's causing it, but the stronger hydrocortisone she prescribed does seem to be helping. Tonight we all did some running around, separately. Craig may be going to Knighthawks practice tomorrow, Jacob has practice on Thursday, and Friday is the Knighthawks' first round playoff game. Work has been busy as well, and I'm finally starting to feel some of the urgency of being more involved at work and trying to contribute to helping with deadlines and things like that. It's yet another adjustment to get used to that feeling again! But all is well...just crazy!
