Oh, hi. I hope you had a lovely weekend. Ours was jam-packed with yard work, trips to Lowes and Home Depot, swimming lessons, bike rides, visits with Dads for Father's Day, and......... a baseball game.
Yes, you heard that right. Cute friends of ours were short a girl for their co-ed baseball team. They asked if I could help. I do like helping. But, the truth is, I haven't played baseball since the seventh grade. And even then I tried to hide behind the bench when it was my turn to bat. The good news is that I survived, I apparently didn't suck too badly, and I ended up with a really cute baseball glove. It's pink. And I sure look sporty when I wear it.
I did, at one point, have to bake some muffins. I told Alex they were a Father's Day breakfast treat - which they were. They were also for lunch and snacks though because we sort of had no groceries.
Alex liked his Father's Day card. I debated whether or not to write a cheesy line on the bottom. You know, like, "Dad, you're a great catch." I decided to keep it short and sweet. I really hope you like my pretend-kid writing. I can't play baseball - but I sure can print some scribbly letters!
This kid loves his little bike to the moon and back. We're working on saying the word "bike". For now though, all I hear all day is, "Mama, I want to go. I WANT TO GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
And last, but not least, my little Charlie Brown perennial garden that I talked about here is surprisingly looking quite pretty.
Today I'm treating myself to a blog post. My report cards are done, my photo sessions are all caught up, and I only have two baskets of laundry left to fold and put away.
Today it feels like I'm not doing too bad at all.
