Hello, everyone! I feel like I haven’t written a post on a long time. But it’s only been a week.
Some exciting news in this house!! Bailey and his team made it to the Gopher State Tournament of Champions!!!! We were all very surprised, they haven’t done so well in the league. Apparently they go by tournament wins, and are given points based on how well they do and how they advance. They did well enough to come in 3rd for tournament points, so they slipped in the back door! Now for reasons I don’t have the energy to get into, they play better in tournaments, so keep your fingers crossed! 🙂 We are all very happy, and very proud of them.
We will have my 13-year-old niece here visiting for 3 weeks, from Iowa. She’ll be here Saturday. I keep thinking she is only 12, but I forget she just turned 13 in April. So, I will have my hands full with 2 kids everyday plus my regular daycare toddler. Should be interesting. I know, what’s the big deal with two kids? When you are used to having an only child, then you have any more than that on a regular basis, it’s a little overwhelming. It’ll be fun, I have so many things planned to keep us busy. She is in love with Justin Bieber, I can’t be more excited about that<<<sarcasm there!
I have Bailey’s birthday party to put together. He’ll be 10 on the 8th and we’ll get together that day here at the house with the family. I am attempting a “baseball field” cake. If it turns out, I’ll take some pictures. We’ll spend the day just us (and now my niece) then have the family over in the evening. Cake and ice cream, and hopefully a good time! Jason has always taken Bailey’s birthday off, and we do whatever he wants. Which is usually fish all day. I’ll pack a lunches and we’ll head out for the day. We are trading our camper for a fishing boat. The camper sounded great, but after baseball and work, and finding an open weekend to take it out, it’s not worth the money we are paying for it. SO we are trading for a nice fishing boat. I see us spending so much more time on that than we could ever in the camper. Bailey could fish all day, every day if we’d let him. I just picked it up again after many years of just coming along for the fun of it. So, I am sure we’ll spend his birthday out on the boat fishing. 🙂 Weather permitting (please be perfect!)
Well that’s it for me today. I know I have so much more running through my brain but again, it’s kind of mush lately. Days run into each other, before I know it summer will be over and who know what this September will bring me. I always seem to go into a slight depression every September, boy goes back to school, a year older, which I can’t seem to make stop. Now, the good thing is I know what to expect and I did have an easier time last year. Whatever will I do when he goes to college, or leaves the house for good…..sigh……………….
