MEA break

We headed out to Wisconsin Dells for some fun over MEA break.  We had a great time at the water park and amusement park with the Anderson clan.  Much fun was had and even a little sleep.

 I can't count the number of time that the boys went on the ropes course.  By the end they were on the hardest course and almost running.  I, on the other hand, did it twice and walked very slow and cautiously. 

 And the race is on.  The climbing wall is not as fun unless you are competing to see who gets to the top first. 

 Jack found the craft area at the hotel.  He managed to win the coloring contest twice while we were there and then spent some time painting pumpkins. 

 Jack was bummed that he was not tall enough to drive the go cart himself so his 2nd choice was to ride with uncle Jason.

Back to School

September came a bit too fast for the boys.  Lucas started 5th grade this year and Jack started 2nd grade.  This will be the last year that they get to ride the bus together until Jack is a freshman and Lucas a senior. 


Summer fun

Slowly getting caught up here.  Thanks for your patience.  This summer was busy with playing, swimming and camps.  Jack was in 2 plays.  He was in Sleeping Beauty and Alice in Wonderland.  He had a blast and was totally in his element. 

We also spent a couple weekend at the lake with cousins on both sides of the family.  I can't count the number of trips I made to the gas station for more gas for the jet ski!


 Well, after 2 years of trying to help the boys learn how to ski (my love).  We decided to go the wake board route.  They both got the hang of it right away (no their mom did not) and now have a new love at the lake.

This is Jack.  Unfortunately, I did not get a good shot from the front but here he is showing his stuff.

A summer of baseball

Lucas had a fun season of baseball this year.  His in-house team took 1st place with a win in extra innings and his tournament team placed 4th at the Gopher State Tournament.  His favorite position is still pitcher but he also plays a mean short stop.

 This year Lucas was lucky enough to have his dad as one of the coaches.
Lucas was also fortunate in that his brother was the bat boy.

4th place at Gopher State.  What a great season!
