Chug a chuga choo choo

Today was a day I will never forget. Scott was in heaven today. We went to Van Buren for old timers day and
After getting to the depot an hour early we waited and waited to FINALLY board the Arkansas Missouri Railroad passenger cars. Scott had so much fun. He kept saying, "Are we going ot the train station? We going to "wide" the "weal twain" translation, are we going to ride the real train. During our wait Scott found a white train he HAD to have and Kennedy found a whistle she had to buy bc she "accidently" put her mouth on. should've left that one there, mouth or not. I am so thankful for thetime we got to spend as a family today. We don't get to do that very often because Sean has to work. He went early to get done so we could go without worrying about the cows. Thanks Dad. It was worth it.

The train went to Copp? A town about 30 minutes past Van Buren at I40. Scott watched the caboose pushed beside us and to the specatator platform. SO neat to see my son get to see the one thing he is in love with. I am proud to be his mom!

kids and technology

Soo I get an email from my mom today that was delivered sometime yesterday. Ok, it's an email you think. This email came from Kennedy to my mom. On Saturday we had a "girls day" and went to Fianna for their annual May day for garage sales on the hunt for a playhouse and some other intersting finds. side note: we didn't find much. Anyway, back to story at hand, kennedy was playing with my mom's iphone. yes, she has one and I don't. She was asking questions about my mom's middle name and so we just thought she was curious.
Somehow she had figured out how to get to notes, typed in the message to my parents, Gransy and Popsy, and then manuvered to the email app and tried to email it to my mom. Crazy how they just know who to do work electronics. Love how smart she is. It is hard for me to believe we are almost done with kindergarten.

Play Ball!

Take me out tothe ball game, take me out to the crowd. It is my very favorite sport of all time. Tball is here and in full swing. I could sit at the ball field all summer. Kennedy is playing well and doing a great job hitting the ball. She doesn't run as fast as I think she could but I think it has something to do with the helmet.
I love to watch her get ready to hit. She spreads those feet, keeps her back elbow up and swings for the fence. If only she propped that foot up to get ready to step before she swings. That will come, I hope. kennedy is playing second base and doing okay. She is NOT covering the bag when there is a force. Once again, I think that will come. her best friend Ellie plays ball with us and they have fun together. Pics to come.

Scott is having fun watching the game yet dying to be out there himself. I found him some baseball pants that match the team and he looks soo adorable. His favorite spot is to play is in the dirt. He has been such a trooper because all he does is hurry up and wait for sister.
On a different note, we are trying to decide where to send Scott for preschool next year. I think it is going to be Mother's Day out at FBC again two days a week. I am not sure. He loves going to school.

Klaire took five steps last Wednesday at MOPS. I watched her and got soo excited and scared her so then she sat down. Of course, she walked for someone else first. her appetite is still growing like the rest of her. We like to tease she will eat anthing that doesn't eat her first. Oh my, she has to start walking soon, she is getting heavy. Klaire is doing so well also waiting on sister and brother. She is going to Ms. Pat's class at MDO at FBC. She loves Ms. Pat. We are loving how excited she gets to walk.
