Hectic, Hectic, Hectic!!!

It has been so busy here lately and I almost can't wait for the boys to finish school. It seems that every night this past week and next week we have something planned (on top of the normal craziness!). Last week was baseball, meetings and riding just about every night. This coming week is baseball, 4-H, riding, 6th grade recognition, and a cross country meeting. I haven't really had any time to do any quilting. I have gotten 200 half square triangle units together and ironed, I have about 150 more to go! So much for this quilt being done by J's birthday in 11 days. Oh well, he won't mind. He just wants a quilt!

Thursday night we had a baseball game, luckily it was home so I was able to ride before I went to the game. Then last night we went to see the Akron Aeros play. I love baseball, its my favorite sport. It was a great game, they won in the bottom of the ninth 5-4. It was our youth baseball league night there so we were with a whole bunch of fellow valley citians (is that a word?) and knew most of the people in our section. The kids all had a great time, they all got to walk around the field before the game and then some got to play catch and two got to be "batboy". T got to do this last year and it was really cool. He had a blast. This year he was the oldest kid walking the field (and the tallest) so I don't think he is going to walk the field next year.

We were cheering in the ninth, there were bases loaded with 2 outs when they won, and J was like why are we cheering so much? I told him there were bases loaded with no outs - he goes is that good? My boy is not a baseball player like his brother. Then it went to one out and then two outs. He kept asking is that good? It was really funny! He just doesn't get it. T was talking with Rich about plays and pitching and all that fun stuff!

Tonight we are bringing home two steers that we purchased (actually my FIL did and they are at his house right now). They will be ready to go by November so I hopefully will only have to buy meat from the store for a few weeks. I don't like to buy it at the grocery store so I am going to go down to the little country store about 5 min away where I know its "good".

Otherwise I know I have been MIA this week, but again, its so crazy right now with the school year finishing up and I'm back working. I'll leave you with some pictures from last nights game...

Oh yeah....check out this link (on AJ Quilts sidebar). Rich says you don't need 71 reasons, just because you can is all you need! Isn't he wonderful! I am going to check out a new shop I found on the internet tomorrow that is right by my house! Its just the next town up! Can't wait!

  • They get angry when you steal it.

  • Stress from dealing with the Fabric Control Officer (my husband) made me do it.

  • It is less expensive and more fun than psychiatric care.

You've been busy. The end of the school year is always a blur! The game looks like so much fun. We haven't been to a Royal's game yet. Shame on us. I love baseball too!

I wasn't really into baseball until I lived in Houston. Now I like to watch the Astros.

The baseball game looks like it was a blast! I remember seeing Orbit at the finish line of the Akron Marathon and Half-Marathon. Love the link, too cute!! Just a little while longer and all the end of school things will be out of the way. My kids are done on Thursday. I can't believe its summer break already!!
