the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few

a few weeks ago, we headed to pontotoc for our annual picking of the blueberries!  they had the biggest blueberries i have ever seen.  i guess the never-ending winter made for some gigantic blueberries this year.  the kids always like to go, and they always start out picking, but......it is seriously hard to compare picking blueberries with climbing a fun tree.  so most of the 6 gallons that we came home with were picked by mama and daddy, but they sure are happy to eat them!





maybe next year we will get a little more laboring out of these laborers (or we will park way away from the fun, climbing tree!)

a whole hand

yesterday, the little man woke up excited.  in fact, everybody was up way too early for my liking, but i guess turning 5 is big time!

reed had a fun day filled with donuts, legos, park time, snack time at peppers, followed by bowling and d'casa with his favorite buddies.  i'm pretty sure there are no bowling scholarships in any of our futures, but if they gave out free rides for eating mexican food....yep, we'd all be in business!!!









(this one may need some more protective gear!)












sil, james, reed, and griffin













happy birthday, reed!!

park and rec

baseball season officially ended a few weeks ago.  we had a fun spring on two different teams!  william was on the consolidated pipe rockies.  they really came together as a team, and they won their last game in the tournament with only 7 players (because others were on vacation), but they had to forfeit the win since they didn't have the required 9 players.  so our season ended...but at least it ended on a win!












wes was on the lost pizza pirates.  we decided that's probably the coolest little kid baseball team name ever.  and they were pretty good, too!  they made it to the finals of their tournament.














and reed.....well, he just hung out all year.  but this little guy will get his turn next spring.


and mama has no idea how i'm supposed to manage three different kids on three different teams!  tips are welcome!
