Caroline had a big weekend.  She started machine pitch.  They played two games in their tournament.  In the second game, she had one of the best hits I saw all day.  She was so proud that it didn't even bother her that she got thrown out at first base. It was soooo hot, but the players and Carter and Chase did great. 
Go Honeys!!  So exciting!!!  
Hot little brothers!!
Papa came to watch. 
Chandler and Abby are still with the little Honeys (tball team).  They sat in the dugout and cheered on the big Honeys (machine pitch). So cute!!  The Honeys loooooove Chase!!
Saturday was the entire teams' first time to play machine pitch.  I wonder if there were some nerves. 
3rd place!!! They played for their first time!! It's funny how Caroline is now the baby of the team again.  I remember when she first started tball and was the timy one.  That seems so long ago now.  :(
Are these Honeys cute or what!!!!
In between games, Malerie came home with us.  She and Caroline sure tried to get Chase to walk.  
Funny pic of Jason.  Chase fell asleep during the last game. Amy wanted to hold him, but then passed him to Jason while she took pictures.  See below.....
Jason was just trying to look uncomfortable.

Yay Caroline and Coach Graham!! (Amy Schmitz photo)
Love this!! (Amy Schmitz photo)
Such happy girls!! (Amy Schmitz photo)
Have you ever seen a more dirty kid???  We were cracking up when we got him in the house.  Thanks to Jeremiah for adding ice cream on top of the many layers of dirt.  Carter and his new friend Ethan drove and drove and drove their trucks!!!  They sure had fun!!

 More from last week....................
This is Chase's new thing.... when Caroline and Carter go out to play, he stands in the doorway and yells at them.  So cute.  Soon he'll be out there running around with them!!

Chase loves bathtime.  I think he likes to be wrapped up in his towel afterward more than anything!!  He grins and laughs the whole time I'm wrapping him up. Must remind him of his swaddling days. 
Mimsy celebrated her 61st birthday this weekend.  I wish we could have been with her.  I think she just keeps getting prettier.  Caroline told me that she still looks like she's in her 30's!!!  I agree!!
Trips to the grocery store are always fun with these two!!!
This little cutie took about 7-8 steps yesterday!!!  He also likes to just stand alone and clap his hand and yell.  He also thinks it's funny to shake his head.  Silly guy!!

Last week was busy, but we started feeling pretty settled in to school.  Caroline started doing homework and had her first spelling test.  I got word that Carter was doing much better at school.  Chase is still not sleeping well, but is super pleasant besides that.  Here are highlights of the week and Labor Day weekend. 
Caroline worked hard on her homework.  I had her write each spelling work 5 times, then gave her a practice test.  If she missed any, she would write them another 5 times.  She got them all right.  She also made sure to sneak some cats in on her school paper.  Too funny!!! 
 On Thurday, they had the PTA Ice Cream Social.  Caroline went straight from gymnastics.  Look how attentive all the girls are to Caroline and Carter.  Cute!!
The girls loved Carter.  He wanted everything they offered him..... strawberry, carmel, and chocolate syrup and sprinkles.  They were laughing at him.  Caroline just wanted hers plain. 
Funny one here.  Chase was the only one who seemed to notice I was taking a picture.  He loves the camera!!
Love this sweet face!! (and that dirty cheek)
Such little buddies.  He looks at her like Carter does.  So sweet!!
Starting to get into everything.  I'm not sure why the garbage can is still standing though. 
It was gameday Friday at school.  I guess they weren't too enthused about having their pictures made.  The buddies are sitting together.  Of course Carter didn't want to sit by Chase, so he's doing his own thing. 
My favorite one. 
Look what Caroline came home with on Friday.  We are sooo proud.  I think we were all a little nervous about it.  She said she wrote the A+ before she turned it in.  Little Miss Confident!!
Yay!!  Football season is here!!  This was Saturday morning. 
We met Taylor and the Smith's for some playtime at the pool.  
Caroline being Caroline and Carter being Carter at Sams after the pool. 
 On Monday, we went to Twin Hills with the Gentry's.  They had a DJ and lots of activities for the kids. 
 Water balloon toss.
