1. My oldest daughter came home for a couple of days. The only downer to this is I've had to work. So, I haven't really gotten to spend any time with her. Tonight she's at a bonfire. She goes back to the summer dorm tomorrow. I'm happy to have her presence here in our home!
2. I am thoroughly enjoying the sun. The weather is beautiful here and I believe that when we go to heaven this is what it will feel like! The grass is growing, although I'm terrible at helping it at all, my perennials are blooming, and the trees are green, green, green!
3. I'm going on a field trip today with my youngest son. We're going to the Children's Museum. I'm bummed because my 5th grader's field trip is today, too and I can't go with him. He's going to the Omni Theater and that would've been awesome! I believe they're taking a tour of the Capital and I haven't gotten to do that either!!
4. Baseball is going really well for my son. They haven't won, but the mood of the team is so much more positive than it was last year. Last year he didn't get to play except a couple innings in the outfield, if he was lucky. The coachs' kids played all the major positions. This is 9-10 yr olds! This year, they rotate positions (at least for now), and the batting line up is always the same. It's completely fair! I am so thankful to the guys who are coaching and for understanding that this is the age where they learn. Oh, and the boys have played 2 teams where they have to TRYOUT to be on the team! Honestly? At this age. Is this about the kids or the coaches? Yah, you can say this is a soapbox topic for me. LOL
5. I have the weekend off!
