April

I cannot believe April has come & gone. The month of May started yesterday and in less than a month Courtney will be home for the summer. (I think!) April was a crazy month. Cael started baseball practice and we made a trip home for a weekend for Easter. And yes, I said baseball! Our boy is going to bypass tee ball and go straight into coach pitch!! He started practice a few weeks ago and I was the mom with the camera out to take pictures. I am not ashamed to admit it. I only have one human child and I will take pictures of EVERYTHING! Cael is actually doing pretty good with baseball. He has been batting with us pitching to him since he was 2 so he is used to it. I’m not saying he’s great and he doesn’t hit the ball every time but he’s doing really good for a little guy. Here are some pictures from his practices.

We got to go home for a few days at Easter. It was a crazy busy weekend. On Friday we drove to Salina and Nicole & I went shopping for new shirts for family pictures. Saturday we got to have lunch with Allyn & Hannah who were in Bennington for Easter. Then we went to the city park for the annual Easter egg hunt. My phone rang right before they blew the whistle to begin and it was Nicole. She was trying to get all 3 girls out of the car. So Courtney went across the street to help her out. Before he could get back they had blown the whistle and Cael took off grabbing eggs. I was the crazy mom telling him, “Grab as many as you can!” and snapping pictures. The girls got over there right when he was finishing up. My sweet, caring, AMAZING Mr. Boy shared his loot with his cousins. And he did it without complaining, without whining & crying about it.

He was preparing for the whistle to blow.

And this. This is my son selflessly sharing over half of his eggs with “his girls”. My sweet boy!

The Easter Bunny found his way to Auntie Sharon’s to make Cael’s delivery. Then we had an Easter egg hunt with Cael’s cousins. Look how excited he is about books and underwear!

This last week in April has been a whirl wind too! I applied for several, like 35 several, jobs. I thought for sure I was going to have an interview at a school here in Leavenworth but they are closing the 5th grade building (yes we have a complete separate school for 5th grade!) so the schools took those teachers. I was pretty disappointed. Last week I got a call about an interview for this past Monday. I went and thought it went fabulous! Then Tuesday morning….I got an offer! I am not going to offer up any details yet because it’s not completely official (it has to go to the board) but in the next couple of weeks I will be able to! Lost of decisions to be made and it’s a little crazy. With having an in-home daycare it is not just about me and my family, there are other families involved. It should be a time of excitement because I can go back to what I love. But while an offer removes that stress it adds a few more stresses! And it adds some sadness because my boy will be leaving me. I have been with him every day for the last 2 1/2 years. How do I not be with him all day every day?? Decisions, decisions!
