(The boys' friend J is on the same team. J and James are the smallest boys in their class, so I had to laugh when I found out that their team is the Giants! For some reason the youth sports around here like to name their teams after the major league teams.)
And why are there three kids on third base in the last picture? I don't know, but there were five of them there by the time the practice "game" ended.

So they built a mud village on their playset, with a king and four minions. (The mud came from under the tire swing.)
Jamesie said, "There were three birds out here, and two flew away! There's one left. That's subtraction. I just did subtraction with real birds!"

We are back home now. (Except for the early-morning wake-up, the travel day was much easier flying out of Gville instead of Jacksonville!) We had some nice spring-like weather to greet us.

Mike actually purchased the lizard guitar shown here (it's made of a bongo drum with a Merle Haggard record on the back), but then he changed his mind and the artist is now making him a custom one with a washboard on the bottom. :)
There was no shortage of beach pictures, but I exercised great restraint and came home with only one of them. :)

They have reached a big milestone -- their feet now reach the bottom of the shallow end of the pool. They're also excited about trying to swim without their life jackets on, and being able to stand up in the pool makes practicing swimming much easier! (We're still not letting them do it without an adult in the pool with them, though.)
