I am sorry to report this will be another post without pictures. Once you read about my week maybe you will understand why.
Let's start with Saturday: Matt - Tball game at 8:30am and since we all know how important warming up is to a true athlete, we were supposed to be at the field by 8:00am. We made it on time, almost.
Mikey - coach pitch game at 10:00. Thankfully this game was at the same place (different field) as Matt's game. So Mikey made it to warm-ups as soon as the coach arrived.
At this point I should mention the weather. For most of the month of May is has been raining here. Practices have been cancelled, games rescheduled and the ground has been soggy, even the tops of hills were squishy.
Saturday, the sun made an appearance! I wore shorts and sunglasses to the games. Now the sunglasses were not for the rays of the sun, but for the glare off of my winter white legs. Sunblock, I know. I had left it in the car.
For the first time in my fair skinned life, I burned my knee-caps and shins.
Anyway, we made it home around noon, I fed the ball players and coach lunch and packed a bag for Matt and myself for a weekend in the country. We headed to WV.
Sunday -Monday: After two nights at my mom and dad's house watching my nieces and grandmother so my parents could go to a piano recital, Matt and I headed and hour down the road to Morgantown to get Matt new orthodics for his shoes. That is another story for another time.
Once that appointment was done we headed back home. Arriving in the familiar 'burg, we watched the big M finish a karate class. After picking Mikey up from school at days end, we ate supper and I headed to karate to get my classes in. After that I met the fam at the church to set up tables and chairs for the Moms 24/7 meeting the next morning.
Tuesday: Knowing the day ahead, the wonderful Big M, offered to take the boys to school so I could get a jump on the day. After swinging by the store for snacks, I headed to the church for the Moms meeting. I am in charge of making the coffee, so you know I had to get there first!
After the wonderful meeting with friends, and lots of laughter, I headed to the school to fulfill my duties at library volunteer. As I finished up in the library, I grabbed the guys who were finished with school and headed home for dinner then each parent took a little m to their different ball responsibilities. We all returned home about 8:30 to fall in bed.
Wednesday: My day was filled with a field trip to PNC Park to watch a Pirates game with my son's 3rd grade class. Again, I wore shorts, but I remembered the sunblock. I slathered it on several kids including my own and covered my legs. I did, however, forget my arms. We returned to the school about 5:00pm. I pulled supper together then made a store run for my cake baking weekend.
Thursday: Parent Helper for the last time in my son's kindergarten class in the morning. After grabbing lunch and letting the dog out, I headed downtown for my book club. At the end of book club I headed to pick up the little m's. Now I am baking cakes. I have been "hired" to make two cakes this weekend. One is a baby shower cake and the other is a "Tangled" birthday cake.
These cakes will fill tomorrow and Saturday afternoon. Saturday morning will be filled with two more ballgames (and sunblock).
Once the cakes are finished and delivered, I think I am going to take a nap until next weekend!
