Project 365, Week 20

Yesterday the picture loading part of Blogger was down so I didn't get my post up. Maybe I broke it trying to load this post of "a picture a day" ;). Would you believe me when I say so much of our week isn't pictured here?

For instance, I stopped to count...between baseball, softball and soccer (5 different teams) our family is averaging 20 (twenty!) practices and games a week! That's a lot of balls being kicked and hit and caught and skills being learned.

So yes, there are too many pictures but I love this active, outdoor, kids-being-kids, thank-God-its-spring time.

May 9
I got to attend a work event at Gillette Stadium, where the Patriots play. It was a really neat venue and lots of interesting information was shared. It was also good to see the people I only get to see at these events...such a great group.

At the end of the day, Joe Andruzzi, with his three Super Bowl rings got up to speak, though he barely touched on his success as a player. Instead he spoke of his battle with cancer at the age of 31 and how life-impacting that was for him. He spoke passionately about his foundation and the work they are doing to help those in the middle of fighting. He's the real deal. It was highly emotional and inspiring.

A plumbing/air quality issue gone bad cancelled school for the remainder of the week. There was much celebrating around here (and morning snuggles)!

Thankfully the forecast was amazing and, lucky for us, we have lots of home-schooled cousins who are available by lunchtime.

May 11
We did a kid exchange for sleepovers.

Aiden needed a little break, so we ran an errand together. I'm so thankful to live close to downtown so we can do things "on foot".

Strong, healthy almost-7-year olds.

Work was real tough this week. ;) This was the view on the back patio of the restaurant where our team met for dinner.

Sitting on the porch steps talking life and taking in filtered sun.

Aiden brought his "Tu'ppence" to his broker daddy. He purchased Disney stock (which owns Star Wars :)

May 14
We were on the soccer field at 8:30 in the morning and the weather was glorious! Late spring in New England!!

H&R Block end of season party was at Uncle Nathan's house.

May 15
Our town held Little League opening ceremonies, which had gotten rained out the week before. H and Aiden are both playing.

We met my brother and sister at my moms to celebrate Mother's Day and explored a place my brother remembered from childhood.

I'm loving all the outdoor photos! And Amanda's topknot is making miss my own. I know I look better with shorter hair, but I just might end up with enough to knot again (especially since I hate to take the time & $$ to get it cut).
