Happy Thursday everyone! How was your weekend/week?? Ours was great! We celebrated Easter with the family, and it was a beautiful day. The wind was a bit chilly but we were able to be outside so I didn’t mind. The kids had a blast hunting for eggs and candy. Grandpa did a great job of hiding everything for them! The food was fantastic, all of it! Thank you Paul & Joy!!
Monday, the best Monday we’ve ever had! Jason makes me laugh. It was Monday morning at 6:30am. My alarm goes off to get Bailey up, I turn over and there is JASON! WHAT?! Wake up!!!! You’re SO late!! Are you getting up? His answer simply put was, “no…..surprise!” A day off? Planned and never let me in on the plan. That’s normal, it’s the little things, the little surprises that get me! And so, a normally dreaded Monday was now a wonderful day!!!
A whole day to just US! That just doesn’t happen. I always have a kid here. Whether it’s our own or someone else’s. To make the day even better, it was also the day we found out if Bailey made the baseball team. We went online to the website and nothing was posted yet. Jason went down the line of phone numbers trying to find someone that knew something! Finally, someone answered the phone and indeed he had made the team. Not only did he make the team, but he made the AAA team. He was disappointed though that his best friend was put on the AA team. I told Bailey, at least he made a team and now he can work hard and try out for the AAA again next year.
We picked him up from school for lunch to tell him. He was grinning from ear to ear! I know he felt a sense of relief. He never showed he was scared, but apparently he was very much so! Then that evening his coach called to congratulate him. He told him he saw him pitching at tryouts and he’d like him to try out for pitching. He was on cloud nine….not even excited so much, but shocked I think. He’s great at pitching, but I think to hear it from a coach put his confidence level so high. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited our family is.
Parental pride and love is unmatched!
That’s it from me! We’ve had an exciting week already and we’re looking forward to a terrific summer!
