Playing catch

Benjamin decided to mobilize the family this morning, engaging us in wholesome recreational activities.

In his words, he wanted to play baseball. And he wouldn't play until the whole family was together. (I tried to toss the ball between the two of us, but he wasn't going for it.)

The girls were both reluctant at first, but Abigail came around and played. Abigail was very encouraging to her little brothers as we played. Collette was outside for a bit (enough for Ben to get started), but refused to join in the game of catch. Besides that we had a great time tossing the ball around.

Cool sunglasses

The boys think these sunglasses are fun. They started fighting over the same pair they found laying around the house. Thank goodness I had a second pair in my car.

The argument stopped, and they were happy to take the photo.
