Monday, Monday

Boy, did we have a busy weekend! I feel as if I could start every Monday post with those words these days. Baseball season is in full swing; add in church and the extra church events we've been having, and life is full. We also had just about every kind of weather you can imagine: beautiful sunny skies, tornado warnings, chilly temps, flooding, thunderstorms, and a breeze.

Thank you so much for all your kind words on this post. It was kinda like a good cry: you don't always know you need it and you don't realize how much better you'll feel when you've finally just let go. That's how that post was. Didn't know I needed to say those things out loud and I didn't realize how much better I would feel after. With a slightly clearer head, I also figured out that part of my state of discontent is related to our non-schedule these days. We've never really gotten back on track after spring break, and with the addition of baseball practice/games and extra church activities, I've felt off-kilter. I know. Crazy how much that throws me off, but it does. Now that I've identified part of the problem, I already feel better about how to get myself back on track.

Rory attended her very first non-parent birthday party last week, and she was SO excited. We don't participate in a ton of parties because of limited time, money, unwillingness to let the kids go with families we don't know, etc. But this one worked out exactly right, and she had a blast! Here she is with the picture she painted (side note: what a FUN idea for a kid's party!).

And just a couple from a church dinner at the pastor's house Sunday night. They don't look like they're having fun at all, right? ;)

They were letting Rory catch the ball and run with it. Of course, no one would tag her out. Except Camden. Every time.

One of these days she's going to be too big for Uncle Michael to throw.

Addison got in on it too.

I always love the pics- you have such a knack for it- I swear. Glad to know the going is a bit smoother now and you have it figured out. We're still waiting for baseball to start- but hockey sort of never ended so we're still scheduled to the hilt :)

Seriously what a fabulous idea (the painting) and I can't wait to see a picture of it on the wall!

I'm glad you are feeling better! And on a path to get yourself "back on track" I get the scheduling thing. We have TKD year round, and S is now in competition mode... which means TKD every. single. day. this week. Blegh. And I love the party idea!
