Saturday BASEBALL!

whoaaaa slow down. Whew! Today! Both boys ready for the baseball parade and opening ceremonies at 8:30 a.m. Vance makes breakfast, gets the boys to their parade trucks, the littles and I go a bit later. We get there, good friends surround us. The Reyers offer us donuts and muffins. Oren throws a few fits. I head home with the littles. Oren naps, Hazel and I "upcycle" a thrift store find and let the chickens free range a bit. We have home grown salad for lunch. Vance, Willem and Merit get to Willem's field before 12:30 for his 1 o'clock game. Hazel, Oren and I arrive at 1:45. Merit runs to the car and says "I am SO hungry." I offer him graham crackers out of a princess lunch sack. Oren does NOT want to be at the game. Hazel wants to be at the playground near the game. I make sure the fundraiser packet that is due is in the car. Phew. I come home and try to feed everyone before Merit has pictures at 4:15. His game is at five. I need to line dry a load of clothes. --------- BASEBALL. I can't really tell you how much our family loves it. But you probably know this, otherwise, I would be reading magazines and sipping coffee on a Saturday while maybe weeding or cleaning a bathroom or two.

Life is good. And there is SO much to be thankful for. And when my sister in law Cary had four children the ages my kids are now she would tell me she would fall into bed every night. I am living that right now. These days, I am excited for 9:30/10 p.m. and hope that I can read for ten minutes. But my head hits the pillow and I am out.

Will, pitching.
Watching Merit and Will be part of a TEAM, hearing them cheer on their team mates, watching them WORK and watching them do their best is such a sweet gift~

our life!

Old books from the thrift store this week

This photo was taken at 8:30 this morning, right before they left for the parade! 
Cheering on these boys and their teams has been so much fun.
And I am so very thankful for their coaches.

Off to... you guessed it! Baseball!
