Last night we took the boys to their first ever Razorback basketball game. (Well, the season hasn't actually started; it was just a scrimmage, which means it was free and a lot shorter than a regular game-perfect for us!) The boys were just mesmerized by all the action at the stadium, Eli especially, since he's never been to anything like that. Ethan's at least been to football games, so it wasn't too different for him. We got to watch the girls basketball team play for a little bit, then there was a slam dunk contest, then we watched the boys basketball team play. It was a blast!
Eli kept his hand in the popcorn box all night....he loves popcorn!!
He loved clapping and cheering...
Ethan gave one of the guys a ten for their slam dunk...
In our bedroom at Lonnie's parent's house, there is a ledge that goes along one wall, which our bed is up against. Needless to say, on a daily basis the boys must spend at least 15 minutes climbing onto the ledge then jumping into bed. Oh, the boys will miss that ledge when we move out!!!
On their way to the Bentonville Tiger football game for some man time:
Several weeks ago we went to Lowe's and they were handing out little wooden car do-it-yourself kits. Today Ethan decided to take it out and put it together. He did the entire thing COMPLETELY BY HIMSELF, pounding nails into wood and all. Took him about 5 minutes. I was SHOCKED!!!!
I am a 31 year old wife, teacher, and mommy. Lonnie and I have been married for 7 years and have two little boys. Ethan is 3 years old and Eli is 15 months.
I hope this blog will help us keep in touch with family and friends that live too far away.
