just a little rambling

Fynn came in the house soaking wet today. He had been out jumping on the trampoline with his brothers, Noah the neighbor and a garden hose. I guess he had had enough so he came in to get dried off. I was tending to Rollin who was resting on the sofa after having his  retinas power washed by his older brother. Rollin began to laugh and he asked me if I heard that? "what" I asked. He laughed again and said "Fynn keeps saying "I literally need to dry off, literally!"" Then we listened and sure enough a naked little Fynn was running around looking for a dry towel saying to himself " ugh I literally need to dry off, literally."

The boys had baseball today! Fynn had a game at 9:45 and Tucker and Rollin had a game at noon. Thadeus was working and we all wished he could have been there! It was 90 degrees today! And it's Only May 5th!!  Fynn is on the "green team" and they were missing several players today so Tuck and Rollin happily joined them to make up for numbers. Somehow Tucker ended up playing first base, and Rollin was playing pitcher. I honestly can't remember where Fynn was playing. But Rolling and Tucker made several good plays and broke the little hearts of all the little t-ball players on the "red team".  The next inning they played in the outfield! Then Fynn played 1st and also made a couple of nice plays!

The Bears played at noon. Rollin was actually the first batter! He smacked a line drive and ran all the way through first. I was really proud of him and one of the dads next to me cheered "now that's how to start the game!" Rollin seems to be getting faster and stronger everyday! I can't remember all the details but I am pretty sure Rollin scored three Runs! He played second base and is learning his position there well. Tucker was amazing too!  He only knows one way to play baseball and that's with everything he's got. He doesn't jog he runs. He doesn't toss he throws. He doesn't just watch he is focused. He don't just listen to the coaches he does exactly what they ask of him. To him it's not a game, it's baseball, and he loves it! He played third base today and there was a pop fly right to him. He had great position, the ball smacked his glove! I jumped and held my breathe! and it popped out of his glove again. He forgot to use his other hand!! Oh man it was still pretty sweet. He recovered the ball quickly and threw it to Bryson at first base and threw the runner out!!  He batted great too. One of his at bats the bases where loaded and he got three runners home. He got stuck on third and never made it in. I think he scored two runs himself today! So the bears won 11-0.  The whole team played really well!

After the game we went to Rita's frozen Custard! We were getting into the van and the boys were all commenting on how hot it was inside the van. Rollin said "whoa yeah it is really hot in here, my ice cream is starting to melt already!" Then Fynn mumbled "I know I've got a puddle in my mouth!"

Oh there is more, there is always more! But I have to go pack! We are leaving for Indiana in the morning. Hoping to meet a sweet little girl named Ruby and love on her beautiful parents!
