Field Trip

Mom and I got to go with Will on his 2nd grade field trip.
We visited Meijer Gardens.
Addy was Will's partner so she joined us.

The butterflies were beautiful!

The butterfly bungalow was too many
butterflies waiting to hatch.

Will loves that Mimi is in town!

Lots of butterflies eating nectar!

Little birdies

Will and I watched a butterfly get nectar from this
plant...amazing to watch the butterfly's tongue.

A neat plant...Devil's Tongue...only lives for a
few weeks.

some outdoor art

Will's favorite...The Horse!
(Will's classmate discovered it was a boy horse.)

Great time!

This picture is hilarious! Mom does not want me
to put this on the blog, but I think it is too funny!
After the field trip, we just hung out together.

Daddy took off to keep Rhett for us. They had a
great time too!

The Shamrock Run ~ 2011

Today was "The Shamrock 5K Run!"
And we're off...

Will and Rhett waiting on me to finish.
Rhett has some blood work done on Friday.
He did great for a little guy who does not understand
about getting your blood taken. (I do not like having mine
done either.) Soo, he earned a toy...guess what
he chose?? You guessed it...another "Woody and Buzz!"
He had to bring "Buzz" with him.
(he does not like for Buzz to have on his wings)

Finishing...Will took a great pic!
I finished in 30:52...#18 out of 54 in my age group!
Pretty happy Mama!

This run is at a High School and after the run
they provide lots of yummy treats...for the whole
family. Will and Rhett writing on the "Wall
of Fame."

This is what Will wrote this year...

better than last year...
I laughed so hard at this last year!
It was too funny! I had told Will that
I was glad I finished but the hills gave me some he shared it with everyone.

Enjoying some yummy treats!

Fun morning...I am so glad Jeremy, Will and Rhett
came to cheer me on! Will had a soccer game after this
so we got him ready and headed for Kingdom Sports.
Will played great! (goalie and scored a goal)
Now, Rhett is taking a nap and Jeremy and Will
are outside! What a great Saturday!

St. Patty's Day ~ 2011

How was your St. Patty's Day?
Ours was great...the kids got to enjoy the
spring like weather!

Will...before school

Rhett...after school

Will and Rhett got to enjoy some much needed
outside time! Will rollerbladed, played some games
of hockey and jumped on the tramp until it got dark.
Rhett jumped on the tramp and played on the playscape.
These boys needed it!!

Looking forward to the Shamrock Run tomorrow...
missing Bethany! Wish she and Christa were
running it with me! This run was the first "official"
race I ran last year. I really can't believe it has been a little
over 1 year since I started running! Training for another
1/2 marathon on May 8th.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Another Waldrop on the Way...

You heard sister is pregnant! I am soo happy!!
I can't wait till October...
This little precious will have a baby brother or sister
to hold! She has been practicing her "BIG" sis skills
for a while now. Conleigh loves playing with her babies.
She reminds me of me in soo many ways...I loved
playing with my babies. I wonder if she is going
to be a "mama" to her baby brother or sister
like I was to my little sister?
We will have to wait and see.

She loves laying her babies down and covering them
up. I wonder why most kids baby dolls do not have
clothes on? I think I always had clothes on my babies.
Well, maybe Conleigh's were just getting out of the tub.

Aunt Staci can not wait to cuddle another little Waldrop!
Love you!

What We Have Been Up To...

I did not do too good blogging last week...sorry!
I do not know why?? I hope to do better this week...
Just to fill you in...this is what we have been up to.

Rhett's soccer class...we found Will's shin guards
he had when he was Rhett's, of course, Rhett
wanted to wear them.

Rhett needed one...his hair is soo different from
Will's. Rhett does very good getting his hair cut
now. It use to be a bribing battle, but now he knows
just what to do.

Woodland Movie Night
Showing "Toy Story 3"
We could not miss it!
Rhett loved wearing his "Woody"
shirt and "Toy Story 3" slippers.
The slippers were a little big...but that
did not bother Rhett! He loved them.
Thanks Texas Bryans!

Ring Pops were a hit!

Hope you had a great weekend!
