As I have said many times, Kate is a funny little girl. She is definitely a baby among first-borns in our house. She just does and thinks so differently from the rest of us. It is so much fun! I tell her all the time that God chose her special for our family because He knew we needed her. And she repeats that often to people. She has a very special place in our family. Because of her quirky style there are lots of funny things that she says and does (plus add on being 5 which I think is just a funny age). Here are a few that she has said lately...
It is well known that Kate is about the slowest person around. I am not kidding. She never gets in a hurry which is just fine unless you are playing a sport where you are required to hustle. So at softball practice a few nights ago she had an interaction with Mrs. Ashley that went something like this...
Ashley: "Come on Kate you need to hurry and run fast around the bases."
Kate: (Said very slowly as she was walking around the bases) "I don't hurry."
We were driving along this week and out of no where Kate says, "The inside of our van is so boring and gray. I wish we could paint it rainbow colors. Then it would be so much more exciting." Never have I ever thought about the inside color of our van. Only Kate!! We love her so!

I thought it would be fun to do a "day in the life" post. These are crazy days and I want to remember them. The day started off a little later than usual. It was a non running day so I got to sleep until 6. Matt woke me up as he was leaving for work (it is always early days for him).
There you have it - our day! Like I said they are crazy days but wouldn't trade it for anything!

We had a jam packed weekend!! We were on the go all weekend. Those are fun weekends but they are not very restful. It kicked off Friday night with a late night baseball game. Ben was so excited to rematch against the team that beat them in the tournament. He did an amazing job playing catcher and outfield. They lost in another close game. Ben had a blast playing!

On Tuesday, I signed Kate up for Kindergarten. I then proceeded to cry my eyes out (really I did which is so unlike me). Can't believe my baby girl is grown up enough to go to Kindergarten at the "big school." Needless to say I am going to be a big mess over the next few months.
We are really going to miss our preschool. Kate has been there for 4 years now and they feel like our family. Kate, Kaylee and Libby have been together everyday for the past 4 years and they are now going to be going to 3 different schools. So sad to think about. First friends are something really special!

Between all our Easter activities, we had a lot of sports! Ben finished up his next cycle of karate on Friday night with his testing for his orange belt.
