Spades Anyone?

Brent and I was teaching the kids how to play spades one morning. Harley thought she would learn too. You know. Just in case someone couldn't play :)

Battle Scar

Isn't it pretty? I've realized this week how often I use that part of my arm to hold open doors etc. It still hurts to bend my arm but it's getting better.

Out and About

Pictures of Hannah and the boys out geocaching about 3 weeks ago. I forgot they were on my phone. This cache was located by a creek bed. It was so pretty even with things not being green yet. The cache we found had hot wheels in it for the boys to trade. Hannah traded a pocket knife. Everytime I looked up she had that thing opened up. I can't believe we actually made it through the day without a trip to the ER for a cut.

I think we found all but 2 caches that day. I have since gone back to 1 place and did find it. I get frustrated when we don't find one especially when it was found the day before by someone else. I need to go with someone with more experience I guess. Wish gas wasn't so dang high right now. The weather is perfect right now to be going.

Why a 41 y/o out of shape Mom of 2 shouldn't play softball

Last week when I told the coach to Hannah's softball team I would play on the parents' team in a scrimmage against the girls I guess I thought I was young, skinny and in shape. NOT!

My first time up to bat I got hit by a pitch. By a 10 year old girl. Who can pitch. Fast. With zip. I blew it off joking around and took my base. But I wanted to roll on the ground and cry. Oh mmmmm geeeee it hurt. My left arm was numb. It left stitch marks.

As I was standing on base I thought how in the hell am I going to finish playing this game. Next time at bat I was a little gun shine. Some how I pulled my groin jumping out of the way of a crazy pitch. Oy vey!

I survived. Barely. I even have a bruise in the palm of my hand from playing catch.

I have a new respect for these girls who play ball. I will never again say "get up, your okay" to Hannah if/when she gets hit by a ball.

My arm still hurts but the feeling is coming back. Slowly :)
