Little Slugger

How to play baseball, according to Isaac:

Make sure you're wearing your batting helmet.
You can use a soccer ball instead of a baseball.  It will work just fine.
When you're ready, address the ball.

Scream at the top of your lungs as you wind up

Continue screaming as you hit the ball, but make sure you completely take out the tee also

Fall to the ground and yell "Touchdown!"

Learning Balance

The news of the day is that Noah has learned how to ride a bike!
Just look at that smile on his face!

He spent the morning cruising around our driveway and sidewalk.
Everything clicked today and now he's an official bike rider!

A glimpse of the future...

One of our summer traditions is going to the New Life 91.9 Faith Family and Freedom Celebration in June.  It's always a great concert and it's a night of rockin' entertainment.  It also gives the boys a lot of inspiration for the band performances that they do at home.  This year, we got to meet Joel and Luke from For King and Country.

They're brothers, they have a band, and they use at least 6 different kinds of drums, a xylophone, and a cello during their performances.  They're unique, talented, and inspiring, and if Noah and Isaac ever decide to have their own band, I felt like I had seen the future of what their performances would be!
Here's two videos of For King and Country's performances (the videos may start with a commercial):
What do you think?  Could that be the future Noah and Isaac someday?
Here's a few pictures of the boys at the Faith, Family and Freedom Celebration:

Isaac's Worksheet

Isaac was so proud to show us the paper that he worked on in KidStreet at church. He wrote his name on the top, which is so exciting! He said, "I did the beginning and the end of my name, and the middle looks a little bit funny." He carefully glued the scenes from Noah's Ark in the correct order, but he glued the ark upside down in the last picture "because it's floating upside down." I love him and his always interesting perspective of the world!
