Pee Wee Soccer

Ryder has enjoyed Pee Wee Soccer this Spring.He and Parker King (left) have had a great time. Taggart supports his brother and cannot wait to get out there with him and the other "big" boys...actually everyone once in a while he goes ahead and runs out there.

We had a great Easter Egg Hunt and Party with the Leslie's and Filmer's.The kids had a great time exploring and racing around looking for all the hidden eggs.
The younger one's were a little slower on the draw but still had fun finding the eggs.
Yes, eggs were hidden on the new fort. Amazingly, the kids didn't realize that the eggs had surprises inside. Once they did, we had to scramble to ensure no sugar comas.


The boys got a fort or playhouse.The climbing wall seems to be a favorite. Ryder flies up it with ease leaving Tagg to figure it out.
Tagg only wants to climb the wall but is not quite steady enough or strong enough to get all the way to the top. We didn't think he would even make it this far.
The boys have already spent countless hours this weekend climbing, sliding, playing and exploring.
Their imagination is impressive.

Spring Bike Ride

The boys went out for a little Spring bike ride.Taggart was eager to demonstrate his competitive spirit by attacking when he saw a gap and his brother not paying attention. With no cranks or pedals his little legs went crazy.
Ryder countered Tagg's move and cut him off as they headed home. Taggart was close but not close enough (see him in the background). We soon found out that Tagg is not so gracious in defeat. We fear the day they are both pedaling away......we have no idea where they got this competitive nature. ;-)

Little Swimmer

Ryder in action..... Ryder continues to progress through the Swim America program. Yesterday, he moved from Level II to Level III.
To highlight the achievement, he rang the bell at the end of his lessons. He is so proud of his achievement but not nearly as proud as we are!

No photos yet but Tagg is officially taking swim lessons now. He seems to be a natural....or just a little more reckless....we can't tell yet.
