Spring Is Here

Well, we always know when spring has arrived, our schedule becomes increasingly busy. We had a pretty eventful weekend. We started it off with a shopping trip for Me, Natalie, Aunt Carly and Hunter, Natalie ended up getting a new dress. After that we had a birthday party for one of Donovan's best friends, Hailey. Donovan had a small mishap on the trampoline, it didn't require any stitches, but he had a nice little cut on his forehead. I will try to show everyone pics tomorrow, he is still a little sensitive over the whole thing. After that Daniel went out with the boys for a little R&R and the kids and I went on a little outting, ending the night with some ice cream at McDonalds. Sunday the kids went over to Jancee and Wiggles to play for a little while and other than that it was a good day for relaxing, so that is what we did. Daniel and I got to watch a whole movie, WOW, for you parents out there, you know what I mean, for anyone who is interested...American Gangster is a really good movie. I'm sure I will have more to share as the week goes on. Donovan is having his awards ceremony at school on Thursday, Daniel has promised to take some pics for me, since I won't make it. So talk with you soon.

Donovan got A/B Honor Roll!

What a great accomplishment for Donovan, he brought every one of his grades up this nine week period. He also got Super Citizen, which considering we had two parent, teacher, principal meetings before Christmas, this is a great turn around. He got a 3.5 AR Reader, which he needed a 2.5. So Donovan is really working hard this last half of the year. We are so proud of him!

Last Game of the Season



The last game of the season went great, the kids had fun and played well. It was a little sad to see it end. After the game the kids got their trophies, ate some pizza and cupcakes, which by the way, black icing should be used with caution, it dyed the kids' mouths, it was so funny. Here are two of Donovan's friends, Micah and Noah with their trophies, thanks again to Melanie for taking pics for me.

Easter 2008

What a busy weekend. The kids had a wonderful Easter. They got to spend alot of time with their cousin, Riley, which has been great. We got together and let the kids color eggs on Saturday evening, we didn't know if they would spend Easter with green and purple hands or not, but we did find out that lotion does wonders on egg dyed hands. They got to meet some new cousins down at the Sopchoppy River Davis family get together (that is my side of the family), they hunted for eggs, and got to eat alot of good food. Then we went back to Uncle Bill and Auntie Chells for some more egg hunting. Carra and Desirea came over and joined in hunting the eggs with us. We all had alot of fun, but it is over now and back to some normal weekday activities. Donovan only has two games left, so back to the ballgames for us.

Friday afternoon of fishing


What a wonderful way to spend a Friday. The kids were out of school and I had the day off, so Dan and I took the kids to go fishing. We had a whole lot of fun, we caught a small mess of about 5 catfish and a bream, but it was worth it. Natalie is losing her girly girl image with the worms, but don't worry, she isn't a tomboy yet.

Rockies vs Red Sox

The team did great, as usual. The kids really seem to be getting a handle on it. Donovan was so proud, he had a huge cheering section at the game. Nana and Papa Davis, Jancee and Wiggles, and Grandmother all came out to watch him play. I included a picture of the back of Natalie's t-shirt for anyone who hasn't seen it yet. She still has some training before she is a first rate cheerleader, she is more interested in the snacks from the consession stand than watching Donovan play. Only two games left.

Rockies vs Reds

This may be my favorite picture of the whole season. You'd never guess that within minutes of this picture, Natalie was having a hissy fit over a sucker. The game went well last night, we were up against a very "hard core" team. Not how we like to play at this age, but to each his own. We are coming close to the close of the season. We got the note last night that they will be doing a pizza party at the end of their last game to hand out trophies. Only a few games left and the season is over for the year, hard to believe it.

Rockies vs White Sox


First off, I want to give Melanie a huge thank you for taking these pics. I can't believe I forgot my camera at work last night. The kids did great as usual. Donovan is really getting the baseball bug, he spent his morning watching sports center with Daniel discussing Billy Crystal's day of baseball with the Mets. We have been looking into a baseball summer camp that Donovan would like to go to, but haven't quite made a decision for this year. Daniel is gearing up to take the kids to the game tonight, as I am having a girls party at the house tonight which was scheduled back in January. Happy Friday everybody!

Rockies vs Twins


Donovan did great at Saturday's game. There were fireworks after the Rec Parks opening ceremonies and we were all suprised they would even light as cold as it was. The Rockies did great, we don't keep score in TBall, but they did a really good job.

Let the Ballgames Begin

We got a call from Donovan's TBall coach that the TBall schedule had a small change from the Rec Park, there is a pre-season game on Thursday night at 7:30 and Donovan's First Game is this Saturday at 9:30 am at Field 11 at the Rec Park in Medart. I apologize for the short notice, I would have liked to have given more notice, but that is how it goes sometimes. We have not gotten the rest of the season schedule, once we have it, it will be posted. Happy Hump Day!
