Ball photo

I submitted the photo from the last post into a photo contest from our local parks & rec department. They chose it for their monthly winner, to be featured on their website. I also get a gift certificate of some sort as a prize!

First out

Princess Leia, on the ground after a slide into home.

It was an out. Before she got to the plate, the pitcher had her tagged.
I really like this photo, though.
I will say, I didn't think she should have tried to steal home, but she listened to her coach.
For that, I told her I was proud.
It was the first out of a game that went into extra innings.
There was controversy over some of the calls.
I haven't been to a girls' game in a while where there wasn't some issue on one side or another.
I do not know for certain which team won, because I had to leave right after this play.
I think it was the red team.

I heard they both played really well.

another week

It seems another week has flown by, and I have no blogging to show for it! Sorry 'bout that!

It is the Monday of getting back into the swing of things. Last week was spring break, so my kids were home all week. We had a few tough days with sickness (I already talked about that). We really didn't do anything out of the ordinary. Just our regular selves happening. We did get to have some friends over for dinner one evening...which was nice. We stayed up too late, of course! We've been playing a game called "Sequence", and it seems we are quite competitive. Not competitive, as in of a high enough quality to be a competitor...but the 'we don't like to lose' kind. So, we stay up past bedtime trying to beat each other. It really has been fun. Throw in a bit of yardwork, and house cleaning, and voila! There's us!

I made a pretty yummy spinach quiche for my lunch. I didn't get to take a picture because the food just disappeared! There are 5 kinds of cheese in my recipe. I might have to make it again soon, since it is so delicious!

Cinderella won an art contest at her school and got a $10 certificate to use at the upcoming book fair. I like that kind of prize!

Leia has spring pictures tomorrow. She better brush her hair!

Jedi boy gets to visit the orthodontist tomorrow due to the suggestion of the regular dentist when they saw his new bottom teeth coming in all crooked. I'm not looking forward to that.

Mr. Snippity has been having car troubles. He's pretty handy with all things mechanical, but is strugging with a problem on his fast car. He'll figure it out soon.

Me, well, I'm just the cruise director for this ship :) School is fine, work is plentiful, and lots of projects formulating! I thought I was having major car troubles, but it turns out it was just the battery. I left my cell phone charging for about 2 days. My mechanic (Mr. Snippity) said not to do that again!

busy days

It seems I've missed some more days on the blogging front. It has been pretty hectic around here, with lots of coming and going for school, work, and softball/baseball and others. We had a lovely Easter with family.

We've also had the sickies. Cinderella was sick with a fever on Thursday, and some Friday. Princess Leia was sick with stomach crud on Saturday night, and now Jedi boy has spiked a fever...while I am feeling pretty queasy. Fun, huh??? I don't have much energy to keep thinking right now, so I'll post and run. I just wanted to let ya'll know we are still around!
