Hmmmmm....3 months...no posts..

Well...so what have the Mongolds been up to? Lots...nothing that note worthy...but always busy! Basketball season has come and gone...baseball has started up. We have had 20 degree days and we have had 80 degree days. Just trying to roll with the punches, get it all done...and have some fun as we walk! Here are some pics of the last three months. Cool events...no super award winning pics!! But happy faces!

PS...I stole some pics from Mary and Sue because they just captured our street fun and I needed to share with the fam!! Thanks guys!!



Ben teaching Hayley to dribble and shoot! I think Hayley has a small crush on Ben and Ben loves to help her! He now wants a sister...I think Hayley has inspired this!

In the past couple of week of great weather this is what we do every day....RUN!! Look at the joy on those faces when they are just running!! Spring rocks! :)
Will will finally leave the house since it is above 60 degrees. He is a nut that way. HATES to be cold! And how much fun it is to have him back!! Hayley has her twin back in action to be crazy with!! :)



Oh my...put on your sun glasses...looks like three boys are in need of a serious TAN!! :) ha ha ha


Water fun in February....who would have thunk it?!?! :)



Flashlight tag!! Whoo hooo.....Mr. Chris has all the great ideas!!





No only are Josh and Maddy in the lighted garage....but they have their flashlights on. And they are supposed to be HIDING? Oops!! Too funny! :)




Ice skating one last time before the rink shut down for the year! So glad the boys are loving to skate this year!!! Benjamin came along for the fun! :)






This is Ben's dear friend from his class. She is so cute. They put their Research Gala Projects on the same table for friend support! Wow...what an undertaking this project was. Took most of January free time to get it ready!


I don't think Ben has ever been as nervous as he was the night before he had to present his project to over 75 people. But look a his face once he realized he was OK...he could "do it"!! Amazing. It was not easy for Ben...or mommy...to get through this anxiety...but the other side of that fence is an amazing amount of confidence in himself.....all WELL worth the struggle!! :)




We made a visit to Fayetteville, NC - Alyssa's new home town and were able to spend a weekend playing with our sweet baby girls! :) (and Niles!!)








The whole fam went to the MOnster Truck Rally in Hampton!! Loud, smelly fun! :)




Yes...Will has been crazy and unpredictable through the last few months...nothing has changed there. He is here SMELLING what donut he wants? In his UNDERWEAR? REALLY?
Feeding Ducks on Superbowl Sunday at Uncle Brians. That lake NEVER gets old!!
Pinewood Derby cars for Ben and Kyle this year. Neither won, but boy they had a ball. Boys just love to race cars! :)

Ben took this picture of mommy and turned to me and said, "You might want to erase this one mom...you look kind of bad!" ha ha ha...I said, "I think I look perfect and I just might put it on my blog!" And since he is helping me make this post...this one is for you BEN!! Your BEAUTIFUL and slightly tired....mom!! :)
