Because, there's not really much going on around here...but so much going on at the same time. Etc.: additional odds and ends; extras.  

Our hens have been fun to watch lately.  They're getting bigger, trying to catch bugs (you were right, Aunt D, hilarious!) and they're smart!  Around dusk we go to put them into the coop for the night and they just file right in on their own.  We kind of miss watching Rugger chase them around and shove them in, but it's good to know they are getting into a routine ;)

Ryleigh wanted the tips of her hair colored bright red, so she spent some of her birthday money on dye. 

She loves it.  We only left the color in for 12 minutes, so it should wash out in about 6 weeks.  Maybe sooner with all the pool time we hope to log in!  Ryleigh is joining the pool's swim team, so she'll practice up to an hour every weekday.  She does NOT want to compete, she just wants the practice.  We decided she could always change her mind mid-summer and compete towards the end of the season.  Should be fun!

Reise and her outfits, ha!

Library story time continues to be a favorite, and we go even more frequently now that we can get there on our bikes in about 5 minutes!

Oh, Isaac!  I snapped this and then said, "let's just scooter like normal the rest of this hill, OK?"  And then, lo and behold, he wrecked doing it the correct way.  I swear!

Pool rats, I tell you.

Staged.  (Still funny.)  We party so hard!

Ryleigh makes no bones about it.  She couldn't care less about Rugger's baseball game.  HA!!!  I don't know what's appropriate here.  Do I let her bring her books and tune the whole thing out?  She doesn't complain about going, she just quietly puts a book into her backpack and that's the end of it.  Rugger doesn't seem to care one bit that she's uninterested in every way.  I feel like everyone's happy here, so why rock the boat?  Is it a rude habit, tho?  Hmmm...

I just could not be prouder of my super handsome baseball coach of a husband.  Those boys played so well in their first game of the season.  Last year's coach's wife taught me how to manage the score book...I had no idea there was so much involved with coaching 2nd graders.  I mean, for the love of the land!  I think we have a decent handle on it, and it's been fun so far.  Go Buccaneers ;)

Mitch is making one final Wal-Mart trip before the big week of camp commences tomorrow.  Sigh.  Those of us being left behind have big plans to eat ice cream for dinner and watch TV before bed all week ;)  Staycation!

What a 'great' game the "Buck-an-ears" played today (makes one hungry for corn-on-the-cob). What a difference a year makes in the kids' abilities to, most of all, HIT the ball. Now the CATCHING the ball needs a little work, but those top-notch coaches can 'get-er-done'! Anyway, nice afternoon all in all!
