Waiting for Graduation to start. He is so excited. The only problem is that he thought that once he graduated he would be in Kindergarten right then, like go to Marcus' class the next day. We are still working on understanding that it is going to be 12 weeks before he goes to kindergarten. Maybe after Marcus graduates in 10 days he will understand better.
Last day of school. The morning class had a Pizza Picnic between classes. This was our favorite class.

The air is warm, the bugs are out, it must be SPRING, right?
Spring normally comes latter in Wyoming than other parts of the USA. Finally after snow freezing cold temperatures, we are starting to think that Spring is here. Here are some signs that Spring has arrived at the Moffat house. Some of them are common signs and others might only be signs if you are in the Moffat Family.
Miles' BOOBOO. It is from his pedal on his bike. He is our stunt bike rider so 2 times this week we had pedal tracks on his leg.
Marcus is our rezilius child. He seems to get hurt but not cry as loud or hard. He is a fast at healing. He did burn his foot when he climbed on Great Uncle Jerry's Motorcycle. He did not tell me until later that night when we were home.
Now, this little girl has taken the Ultamite crown for BOOBOOS this week.
She started this week off by falling down the porch steps and scraping her right knee and hand, it was a good bleeder. Then she has tripped over her own feet in the front yard and scrached her left knew . She has also managed to fall off her bike a couple of time, scraching her left knee again, her hip, hand and even forehead. She seems to be getting right back on though. Good thing she does not have far to fall. I counted her bruises below her knees and she has at least 8 small ones. If you are asking your self How? I think it is because the air is finally warm and so the shorts and flip-flops are out. Thus there is more skin exposed to scrape and they are all playing out side as much as they can.
Baseball is another sign of spring. With 3 boys all playing baseball, we spend up to 4 nights a week at the ball park.
Baseball updates: Miles Hit the ball and made it to base this week, Marcus almost beemed someone in the outfield with the ball. I don't think they thought kids could hit it that far. They were seated on a blanked watching th game. Mason did not have to use the T at all this week. Way to go Mason. Marcus is a true blue ball player. People in the crowd even come up to us and tell us that they love watching him becasue for his age he already knows the game and you can tell he loves it. He is an all-star first base player. He also played one inning at catcher. I think that he looks cute in the gear.
Mason update: We went to Utah to get some dental sugary done on Mason. When he was young he had problems swallowing and would pocket food for hours on end. This caused him to have many cavities in his bottom teeth. So on Wednesday we took Mason to a Pedeatric Dentist to have him sedated with verced and have 5 cavities filled including 2 root canales with crowns. He is so proud of his shinny teeth. He does not even remember it being done. He is such a trooper and never even complained of pain. The dentist was suprised as they were really bad. He has delevoped a high pain tolarance threw the years, with all that he has been threw.
All in all we had a great week welcoming in spring. We even dug up some of those nusience dandlions and prepared to plant some grass seed were the previous tenats had killed the grass.

The Highlight of the week was Mother's Day of course. Miles by far wins my biggest smile.
Miles and Marcus rode their bike to Smith's and Pamida with mom's cell phone, Saturday Afternoon. We live really close and with having a cell phone, living in small town I felt OK letting them go and purchase their own mother's day gifts. So with their piggy banks in tow (a small container decorated with stickers). These are pictures of what they purchased for their mom. First stop was Smith were Miles (a sweet big brother) Purchased me a singing card that sings "Simply the best" and a small bag of M&M's. He also was thinking of his younger sister and brother (Mason) and purchased small card to be from them to give Mom. Marcus bought mom a card with flowers on it and drew me a picture of Me and him inside he also bought me a candy bar.
Then the crossed threw the parking lot and went to Pamida and purchased a beautiful bouquet of Flowers ( they are the kind you normally put on a head stone, that is what made them even better.) I have trained him well. He has learned to buy flowers that last. Just think, when my time has come they can decorate my head stone too. I would say he is one smart very adorable kid. He will make someone very happy some day. I can see it now on his first day when he is home from his mission he will bring her the same thing and tell they will last longer than their relationship.
Madison came home from school on Friday with a pretty planted flower and then told me she was going to make my nails pretty for "Mudders Day" this is how they turned out. I swear she is a 3 year old going on 13. She is all about finger nail polish and lip gloss. Mason came home from school with a cute picture of him made into a butterfly. Madison and Mason also with the help of their daddy made me cute homemade card and helped daddy give me Jumbo Symphony candy bars.
This is picture of my wonderful family which is now 66% bald. We had fun on Wednesday cutting hair. Mommy even had 8 inches cut off. We are all sporting our new dews.
Last but not least I was finally able to make it to one of Miles' baseball games. Her are some pictures of him playing ball. His team is has won 1 and tied one. Both teams play on Monday night. stay tuned to follow what happens with them. We are so proud of them. They are all doing so good in baseball.

As many of you know. In our house, daddy goes bald every summer. He says he is practicing for when he is old and bald. So when we talked about shaving daddy's head, the boys wanted in. so this is how they are looked after a shave and a shower. Soft as a baby's bottom.
Will have to post a picture of all 4 men of the house latter on. I did not get to finish Jim's until after the others were asleep. took 3 hours total to do 4 heads. Clippers and then razor. What fun.
Madison wanted her's done, too. For some reason her mom said no. I told her that all princess need to have hair. She had fun watching and then getting her picture taken. The sun screen is ready to be sprayed on before they leave for school. Hopefully they get a tan before their hair starts to grow out.

As a mother of boys, you spend many days at games. Today was to be the first of many games for Mason and Marcus. They were so excited that they were on the same team. They play for the Arizona Diamond Backs.
Having fun in front of the camera. They were so excited. The first game of the season. Brings me back to my games as a kid. The first game is always the best. You have practiced and practiced. You are ready to show off what you have learned.
Showing off our numbers that we are wearing. Mason is play with number #8 and Marcus is wearing #12 We had them on the wrong kid until I went to take this picture and noticed that they had on the wrong shirt.
It was not until we were in the car on the way to pick up a bite to eat before our game that we found out, due to Sunday's rainy weather. The boys first game, the one they were looking so forward to was "CANCELED". They were so sad, but when I told them that they had another game on Tuesday they perked up a little. I just hope it does not rain. I would hate to tell them that another game is canceled. There is a 50% chance of rain tomorrow, so we are all praying that the weather man is wrong.
