Some Special Time

The second Sunday in June is always my husband's family reunion.  It is held in a little town in south Georiga called Blackshear.  It always ends up being a great trip because there is nothing to do in Blackshear, GA.  Doesn't sound like a reason for a great trip?  Well, it forces you to truly be on vacation.  You don't have to be anywhere, Grandma cooks for you, you swim at Grandma's house, and play with cousins that you only see once a year.  It is for serious like going back in time!  Just sitting around relaxing for a whole weekend! 

 Unfortunately, I can't go this year.  My husband and the older boys headed out yesterday, but I stayed back with my wild little man.  My littlest man made the all star baseball team and he has practices and a practice game.  Although I was initially a little bit disappointed, it has turned out to be a really good thing.  Why?  Because I am getting to spend some very special one on one time with my littlest man.  What are we going to do between practices you may be wondering?  Well, we started off with a trip to Taco Casa (If you don't live here, you have no idea what this place is all about, but I am telling you it is worth the trip to T-town!) and a pit stop at TCBY.  Next, we headed to the grocery store for the most important supplies ever. . . Pop Tarts, cereal, milk, chocolate milk, watermelon, gatorades, and a ton of gluten full foods.  You see, we have been eating gluten free (well, for the most part anyway) for a while now, but not this weekend!  We are going to live it up with some french toast - most likely for supper, pancakes for breakfast, and whatever else we feel like eating.  

I'm breaking all the rules for our special weekend!  He's sleeping in my bed with me and we are staying up way late (okay so he made it until 9:30 last night, but you know what I mean), and pretty much just having fun!  Can't wait to make some special memories with my littlest man!

We are the champions . . .

Oh my!  I have missed blogging and all my blogging friends.  It feels like it has been forever since I have written a post for my blog and I still don't really have a lot of time tonight.  However, I wanted to let everyone know that I am still alive and kicking!

 Where have I been you might be wondering?

 Why the ballpark of course!  My oldest two's team fought their way back from the losers bracket to play in the championship, but lost in the end.  However, we are all excited with their 2nd place finish!  Way to go Cubs!
I absolutely loved our coach this year.  My oldest two are no baseball all stars by any means, but they love playing baseball.  He taught them so much and made them love baseball even more.  What more could you ask for?  If you live in this area and are lucky enough to be on David's team - consider yourself blessed!

Now, my youngest little man's team won the championship!  There were some crazy good t-ball games.  We had to play the one team that had beat us in the regular season.  Actually, they beat us three times (the jamboree and twice during the regular season).  Our first tournament game against them was a nail biter.  We won 7 to 6.  Have you ever heard of such a low scoring game in t-ball?  I mean it was serious business!  Then we had to play them again in the championship game.  It was another great game and we won 16 to 15!  Woo Hoo!  Way to go, Blue Jays!

Little man also had a GREAT baseball coach that really focused on fundamental baseball and was super positive the whole season.  Hayden loved every single minute of it!   We are not quite finished with Coach Ron just yet because little man was selected for the all start team and Coach Ron will be his coach.  He is super exicted!

So, I'm not quite finished with baseball just yet.  We've got a very busy next few weeks as we prepare for Regional and State tournaments, but we feel super blessed and excited! (Oh . . . by the way, all star tournaments are coach pitch, not t-ball, so this could be interesting!!!!!)
