T-Ball & BLAST ball

We're on our last week of T-ball for Coleman and Blastball for Caden. It's great to watch, but again... we're tired of the driving! We've been able to help out a little with Coleman's team and have really enjoyed our time in the dugout keeping the line-up straight!

Blast ball is where the little guy hits the ball and runs to the one base- half way to first base. When the jump on it, it makes a honk. Pretty fun stuff for four year olds! His fierce competitive side is already emerging...

S U M M E R running

I just LOVE summer... but, not driving so much! Driver's Ed, swim lessons, T-ball, blast ball, basketball camp... too much craziness! I put 100 miles on my van the other day in just one day driving back and forth to town. We love living in the country, but are thinking living in town might simplify things...

H O T date

In college, speech is mandatory. Usually three speeches are required one being an informative speech. Yes, I chose the topic of Tim McGraw. OK, without blabbing on and on, I like him that much. He just has SO many great, great songs that never get old. Last night, Jim and I had a hot date- Lady Antebellum and Tim McGraw in concert. We had a wonderful time- can't say enough... Jim planned dinner out at a new spot. Fabulous concert. It was a much-needed Friday night out!

D a n d e l i o n s & C l o v e r s

The thought crossed my mind this week... I wonder if this is the last summer I receive sweet dandelions & wildflowers from my little guy? They all did it, Caden just happens to be my baby! The smile on his face when he empties his pockets with the scrunched up flowers he collects is just priceless! As tough as some days are... I know I'm going to miss these times with my little guys!

our L O N G weekend

We took the long weekend and made a much needed trip to Illinois for time at Granny's house. Family, cousins, Granny's cooking, Aunt Patti (& Aunt Dawn's) desserts, catching up, shooting guns with Grandpa Mike, visiting, fishing, resting... it was, as always, a nice break! So nice to be around family!
