I have been a little sporadic in my posts, but a few fun things have happened that I wanted to share!
Our little Hallie girl started pre-school. I (as usual) am trying to save a buck, so there is a group of 5 moms (6 kids, we have a set of twins in there!)and we are rotating houses. So 2 days a week, for 2 hours she goes. She was SO excited on her first day of school, and is quite the student. Hallie has always been my "learner"...she loves to read, write and name her letters, and watches Anna do her homework. I am so glad that she has her little pre-school! It is weird to have a few hours to myself (Linc naps during that time). I think that I could get used to having my kids at school!
On Saturday night we took the kids to the Diamondbacks game. They had won tickets from the library summer reading program (remember that?). They have been over-the-top excited to go, and all day waited anxiously to leave. So we drive downtown, Randy parks, wait in line to get the tickets, haul the gang inside (all the while trying to keep 3 children under the age of 6 together and avoid the mobs of people), take everyone potty, climb up to the nosebleeds with the slow-pokes (they are library tickets, remember?), climb over people to our seats, sit down. Whew. We couldn't have been sitting more than 5 minutes before Anna insisted that she had to go potty. Down we go again, use the potty, climb back up, climb over people, sit down. Needless to say, we only lasted 3 innings. Anna kept asking when the game was going to start. I had to tell her that the game already DID start...this, my dear, is baseball...not a Hannah Montana concert! Hallie was good until we ran out of food to feed her. Linc loved clapping when everyone else did, and wanted to make friends with all of the nacho eating/beer drinking fans around us. Chalk it up to another McBride adventure! I hope Linc likes sports so Randy gets to go to sports and actually stay and watch the game!
