Play Ball

Tonight was Eli's very first t-ball game.  I feel like this is such a milestone because he loves baseball so much and has wanted to play for so long. 

We rushed home from work and loaded up to head out.  Thankfully my parents were home and had him and Ellie all dressed and ready. 

Eli had quite the cheering section.  Me, Ellie, my parents, the Pates, and Ms. Beth.  If you missed it don't worry.  I'm sure he'll sign autographs later. 

Please don't think I'm too hard on my kid, I just want to document this for personal memory: Eli had a great game in the field, but he seemed a little nervous when it was time to bat.  He either missed or hit it to the pitcher.  Of course, I still think he's a rockstar! 

The next pictures are of Eli and his buddy Miles.  They are best friends from daycare, so we were thrilled that they would get to play on the same team.  I have a feeling this will be the first of many times that we'll cheer these two on. 

Ya'll, it was such a blessing having my parents there.  Ellie was a beast.  Bless her heart, I think she's getting sick with something and just wasn't feeling the game.  Thankfully my parents watcher her so that I could cheer for Eli.  Sabrina also helped the cause by giving her Cheetos. 

Everyone said that t-ball would be fun, and they were right.  The kids were playing in the dirt, running to third instead of home, fielding their one balls.  It was too fun.  Even my serious little player yelled to me from second base to ask if he could play with Griffin after the game,  Ha! 

I can't wait to see what the rest of the season holds.

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt
