Virtual Playdate

Matthew met Gio at his national tournament a couple of weeks ago. They became fast friends and pen pals. Tonight they had a scheduled FaceTime stacking play date. It's amazing how far technology has come!

Day 1 With Mom

Our fun filled mom and Molly day had a sour note while playing catch outside. Both Molly and Maggie, the dog wanted to catch the ball and they ended up head-butting each other instead. 

It can only get better...right?!

5 Years

Friday was Molly's last day at daycare. She started 5 years ago to the month when I went back to work after maternity leave. I know she'll miss her friends there (and Angie too) but I can't wait to spend 1:1 time with my girl before she starts Kindergarten in the fall!

New Gaget

When I'm getting ready in the bathroom in the morning, I love to listen to Pandora streaming through my iPhone. 

Last week I found this little guy on Meritline for $11. It's a cordless Bluetooth speaker. It has fantastic sound and I can take it anywhere in the house or out on the deck. 

It comes with it's own USB charging cord and so far works great!


This girl will be going to Kindergarten Roundup tonight!  I'm excited for her because she's excited but inside I can't believe my baby will be going to the "big" school!

Brag Post

Warning...picture overload coming!  Matthew and I spent the weekend at the National Sport Stacking Championships here in KC. 

He received Speed Stacks for his birthday almost exactly one year ago and really took to the hobby. 

We entered him in a tournament last summer and he really enjoyed it so when the opportunity presented itself for two more tournaments this month (close to home to boot!) we got him 

I am beyond proud to say that he did amazingly well. I have a NATIONAL CHAMPION for a son!  That's right folks, my son got 1st place in his division INNTHE NATION for the "cycle" which is the creme de la creme of all the stacks. He also finished 1st in the country for his division with his doubles partner Luke whom he has never met before yesterday. 

As the icing on the cake, he will now hold all 3 of the Missouri State records for his age group. 

There were over 200 stackers from 29 states competing over the last two days. We already have plans to attend the AAU Invitational this summer in Des Moines. He can't wait!

Cake Time

Today Matthew has his Cub Scout cake auction. We will be attempting to make the cake pictured below (minus the monkey). It is supposed to have a jungle theme. We made the cakes and the fondant leaves, snake and banana yesterday so we'll see how it turns out. 

Final Result:
