Well Ooops LOL

So I said I was going to try and blog everday, but it seems it is all I can do to sit down for a few minutes. But well today I have a minute. So it was a busy week. We had, of course, baseball and softball. JT won his game on Thursday and Savannah did awesome at hers. You can most definitely tell that she is playing with the boys all the time. She was playing on second base and sure enough she got the ball. Well, the girl beat her to second, but kept on going and then turned back. Everyone is yelling at Savannah to tag her, so she does. Not only does she tag her, but she pretty much punches her with the ball. Everyone in the crowd chuckles and thinks it is so cute. Well I am sitting there thinking "Oh man, we will have to talk about that one. " So into the dugout she comes (I am dugout mom , so I am there also) and I tell her hang on. I said, "That was an awesome tag Nan, but next time try not to hit her so hard." She responds with, "But Mom, that is how the boys told me to tag someone!" So I had to explain that when she plays with the boys, she can act like a boy but while with girls she had to be a little more careful. Sometime playing with boys 24/7 is not such a good thing.

JT had another game today and we beat the rain!!!! He played really well. He got a hit everytime. His uniform is very dirty today though. He decided that while running to first, he would try and eat some red dirt LOL. His coach told him he just needed to watch out of the dirt monsters because that little boy sure went flying!!!! So of course he was out at first LOL. He is really improving all the time. It must be because he pretty much eats, breaths and sleeps baseball. I sometimes wonder if it is us pushing him, but it really isn't. We have been trying to get them to STOP playing baseball and all they want to do all day long is play ball. I am sure by the end of next year we will have at least one broken window. The roof may have a good grove going down it from the constant thump and roll of the ball. At least I know all my kids are outside and safe when I hear the constant "Thump, Thump, SMACK (into the side of the house from Jake)" Then "OH Man I missed, Almost or WOOOOHOOO Good Catch"

Josh is on 24 hour duty today (First time in a LOOONG time). He has no privates to watch, so he will get to sleep WOOHOOO!! That means tomorrow we can go do something fun since it will be our last weekend before the chaos of getting ready to leave starts.

Speaking of leaving we have now pushed it off until the 15th. JT came home from school and was the top Accelerated Reader in his class. I am so proud of that little kid. He is sooo smart, it just amazes me. He is now reading on a 5th-6th grade level they say. Anyways, for being one of the top, he gets to go on a trip to Atlanta with the other top readers in the school. They are going to the aquarium and doing a behind the scenes tour. Soooo, I had to put leaving off a day. Now we will leave here in the afternoon and drive up to Atlanta and pick him up at the aquarium before they head home. Then off to St Louis for a few hours rest. Then off we head to Rapid City, SD. Then HOME WOOOHOOO!!! I am sooo excited to be going home. I am still debating on when to come home. I am thinking I will just play it by ear and just come home when I feel like it LOL.

Other news Hmmm...Oh yes I GET MY NEW CAMERA WOOHOOO!!! Soooo I will be putting all sorts of pictures on here soon. WOOHOOO!!!!
