isn't summer supposed to be the nice slow life? where you get to sit & just chill? not so for this momma. we started the end of may with baseball & softball games on four nights a week. the middle of may brought k here & softball games for her 2 nights a week, putting our normal games a week count at five, sometimes up to up to nine if we had a double header or a tournament. i put a LOT of miles on. & thank God that i have a super awesome husband and mom who helped get everyone where they needed to be. one night we had activities in albion, spalding & pierce at pretty much the same time.
that is the majority of why i haven't posted anything for such a long time. & don't get me wrong. i may complain a bit about all that running, but i wouldn't trade it for the world. after ball, we got in a few fun things (like a trip to the zoo, drive in movie & of course some camping) before it was time for k to go back to az & to think about school.
it has been good having k with us for a month the past few summers. she got to experience what its like to be the big sister instead of the baby. the other kids have someone else to pester & give them advice. i am really happy that she got to play softball here this summer. she made some friends & had a great time.
since i am not there all the time to offer motherly advice i made her a book of quotes & words that i wanted her to remember & think about. k can read thru it anytime she is down or upset. or when she feels that her struggle will drown her.
we both love winne the pooh
it was fun & trying to come up with different page layouts. i think i had 50 quotes that i used.
i especially wanted k to know how loved she is.
i hope she loves it & thinks of her nebraska family when she reads it.
