Dancing with the the RAIN

We pile everyone in the car for Gavin's fall ball games each week.  Sometimes fun for the family, sometimes not.  This time Jason was out of town so Barb didn't have a choice but to take everyone.  We met Grandma Patti there and took our seats on the bleachers.  About 3 minutes before the game started, the rain drops started. Within 10 minutes it was a full down pour!  Most parents and kids were hiding in the dugout trying to stay dry.

Not the Hendricks!  Rain often translates to dance party in our world. Why not?  It's only rain, and God made it so it must be good, right?  Plus the mud that we all end up covered in comes off in the shower.  Needless to say, we were the last ones to leave the ballpark.

Good times.  Making memories.

Big girl goes to school

We still call her baby Lola, but she's far from that.  She's MORE than ready for preschool, but her age doesn't allow her in yet.  She'll definitely be the top of her class in years to come.  In the meantime she'll continue learning through play and enjoying friends and teachers.  Lola goes to a Kids Day Out program once a week all day long at Kids Place at Grace (where we also attend church, Grace United Methodist Church).  The staff is absolutely amazing.  She loves going on Tuesdays with Liam, and is a bit disappointed when she doesn't get to go on the other days.  She will soon get used to special days with Grandpa Patti and push school to the curb.
