Take Me Out to the Ball Game

 

Declan finally got to experience a baseball game at the stadium.  We took him to McCoy to watch the Paw Sox play their last game of the season.

He got really excited when the players hit the ball.

After about 5 innings Declan did get a little ants in his pants.

Thankfully we sat all the way at the top of the stands so he was able to play in the space behind our seats.

He thought he was pretty cool with that foam bear claw.

The game was really fun, even for the kiddos.  Next year we will definitely try to go to a few more.

He’s a Kindergartener

Today this little monkey started kindergarten.  I can’t believe that Declan is old enough to actually be going to school.

He wore his new “school” sneakers.  I remember going shopping for school clothes when I was a  kid and how exciting it was to have new stuff to wear the first few days of the new school year.

He does not take a bus to school so I do the driving there and back.  I like this time with him,  we get to chat about what happened during his day. 

 

firstday4 

He is growing up way to fast.  That is my little sweet heart right there. 

 

firstday5

 

I love this kid!!! 

 

firstday6

 

Honestly, I shed more than a tear once I got back in my truck after seeing him walk through the school doors.  It was more like sobbing.  Yeah it was not a pretty sight.  I am pretty sure that it will be easier tomorrow.  The first day is always the hardest.
