As you know, when you have children, your time is no longer yours...
Baseball. I am not a die hard fan like my sister. However, once I get there I enjoy the spirit of the game. Oh, let's be honest...I just go for the nachos!!! That is what I had for dinner last night while watching this guy. It's he cute?!
Yeah! He made a good solid hit in last night's game, unfortunately he has this way of hitting it towards first base every time. He has another game Friday.
I will not be at the game Friday, because this mom is going to be sweet and let daddy dearest off the hook. Kayla's dance recital is Friday night too. You can imagine which one dad wants to go to! Let's see...dance recital or baseball game? Believe me it was a very hard decision for him. :)
As for dance, by the time it is all over I will have seen umpteen girls dancing in tutus. Kayla had dress rehearsal Monday night...I was there for three hours!!! Her three dances will be Friday night. However, she is in the opening number for all three recitals, which means I get the honor and privilege of going to those too. We do get to leave after she dances on the Saturday performances, but since I have some senior girls from our youth group dancing Saturday night, I'm going to try and stay to see them. This weekend I will be danced out!!! Energizer bunny, where are you?!!!
Kayla is taking French. The high school is offering a 6 week course, one day a week, after school. It is for the 6Th grade students. She had her choice between Spanish or French. I told her she needed to learn Spanish. She told me that she planned to learn both. OK. Hope she is better than I ever was at languages... I took both French and Spanish and remember almost nothing. She went yesterday and had a blast!
Jordan is painting a bench. He won an art contest and was one of the students selected to paint a bench in the new learning garden at school. HE is so excited! They are having a dedication ceremony on Friday. I have to work, but I'm hoping I can talk Kev into carrying a camera for me. My son painted one of the benches in the new garden, how cool is that?!
I went to the dentist Tuesday. She fixed a filling that had gone bad and took care of a cavity in another tooth. The crazy thing is that when she first started working on my mouth, I felt a shoot of pain that made me jump. She gave me another shot. It took three!!! I now have a bruise on my cheek. Moral of this story, go to the dentist...often. If you wait like me, you never leave the office and your wallet is drained dry.
Tonight was youth. I am soooo glad we meet on Wednesdays. I need that "lift" halfway through the week. My husband has started a series on Joseph. He was talking about how to know God truly cares when things don't always go like we think they should. God has a plan even through the difficult moments of our lives...can I get a big AMEN?! As my husband likes to say; "I think he was drinking my koolaid" tonight!!!
On that note, I had better go get my beauty sleep. Dark circles under my eyes would be too "matchy matchy" with my bruised cheek. I have a full day tomorrow too. Although it is my one "free" night from spectating and cheering for my kids, I have as my sister likes to say a "mountain of laundry" to do and a sink full of dirty dishes. ( How is it, if we are never home, we still find time to mess up every glass in the cabinet?)
Hope you have a great day tomorrow!
