End of T-Ball

Well, it's been over since mid June but I'm a little late getting this post done. We all really enjoyed ourselves. We had a great team with great parents and good kids. A wonderful first experience into the wide world of sports.

They had a huge end of the year league party but we opted to do our own party with just our team. We had a BBQ and a game where the kids played the moms. The food and company were great and the game was a riot. I haven't ran or hit a ball since I was a kid. Let's just say that running for me is an unnatural thing in Here are some pics from the party and the game. Please stifle the laughter when it comes to me k?

Ready to catch the ball. I told you it was unnatural.
Getting his trophy.

Team photo..aren't they cute.

Latest Blakeisms

This last Saturday, Blake was "helping me" clean up the downstairs. I had the vacuum cleaner going so I had to try to talk over it and direct him in moving things so I could clean under them. Apparently I was starting to get on his nerves after I had told several times to move this one particular thing and he looks at me and puts his hands on his hips and says " Mom, you are driving me inpain"

Yesterday after his dad had finished saying quite a lengthy blessing before dinner, Blake didn't even miss a beat as he said "Dad, I think Jesus would say "Tim, that's quite enough" Out of the mouths of babes. He cracks me up. I think I have marks on the inside of my cheek from trying not to laugh.

I have more to post about but I'll have to get to it later. I had to get these down before I forgot them.

The face of allergies

Poor little guy. This is what Blake looked like Thursday evening after we came home from interviewing a new sitter. He has been outside playing in the yard with her little boy. Less than 20 minutes later this is what we saw.

He has had allergies for several years but this year and particularly this week have been the WORST. I don't know if it's just the cold spring we've had or what. He takes Zrytec every night and it had been keeping it under control now.

He got worse overnight and we took him to the doctor Friday. He got a breathing treatment there in the office and was sent home with prescriptions for an inhaler, steriods and eye drops. After a day of treatments he is starting to look more like my little boy and less like a price fighter. He really is such a trooper. He has been very brave with the eye drops and the whole thing.

Wii love to play

I've never been a big fan of gaming. I mean, I've played a little tetris here and there but that's about it until.....the Wii came into my life. I just love this thing. I'll admit it. I'm a major Wii fan. We have had so much fun with this thing. It's interactive and fun. No more just sitting around pushing buttons. You interact with this thing. Everything from boxing to being judged by Simon Cowell in American Idol.

And is even training me. Hubby got me the Wii fit this weekend and I am loving it. It has Yoga, strength training, balance games, aerobics and all kinds of other things. It measures your BMI and your weight and keeps graphs. It even keeps track of the time you use it everyday and heaps on the praises. I would highly recommend it.

Holding my own

It's been a month now at my new job. Wow, it feels like I just started. I still have a huge learning curve ahead of me but I can now see the progress I'm making and so can the people I work with. My boss commented that they are very pleased with my progress and that I have surpassed their expectations. Now, I don't need to constantly be praised but it sure is nice every once in awhile.

It's been very busy and the days just fly by. Blake has his "end of T-ball" party tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. We are skipping the big league party and just having a BBQ with our team and parents. The moms are going to play the kids so that should be fun. Someone should come with a video camera because I'm thinking there will be 100,000 dollars to be made from Americas funniest videos.

Hubs took the day off tomorrow so it will be fun to have him around on a Saturday. He is going to help someone in our ward tomorrow morning and then I think I have him talked into going to Freddy's and getting me a Wii Fit. We have been trying to buy one but they are always sold out. A new shipment is coming in tomorrow so I'm crossing my fingers. Have you guys seen this thing? It's way cool. I'm hoping that by using it I can strengthen my core and help my back pain. A couple of people I know have one and they really like it. If I get one, I'll be posting about I'm sure.

I met with our new primary presidency and I think everything is going to be just fine. They are all great ladies and with the help of some time on our knees we'll make it. I was put in charge of the primary program..YIKES..I'm scared but I know some creative people and I have no problem calling in a few

New calling

I have a new calling. Today, I was set apart as the 2nd counselor in the primary presidency. I have mixed emotions about it. On one hand, I love the primary and children in it. I'm convinced there isn't another place you can feel the spirit so strongly. On the other hand, I'm concerned about the amount of work involved and whether I can juggle it into an already busy schedule.

Every since I got the call on Thursday that one of the bishopric was coming over, the thought has been going through my mind that "To those he calls, he also qualifies" I'm certainly going to have put that to test as I try to embrace my new duties. I didn't know what the call would be and I seriously considered just saying no but I couldn't do it. I'm glad I didn't. I felt the spirit today when we, as a presidency, were set apart. It's supposed to be this way. He will help me. I will lean on him.

Sidenote: It was really neat to have Tim be able to lay his hands on my head and take part in my "setting apart". Life is good.

Still here

Just running from one thing to the next and by the time I get home, I'm too pooped to make in onto the computer. I just checked my bloglines and the number was so big that I just closed the page and I'll try again later. Please know that I'm thinking about you and I'll get caught up soon on my reading and posting.

Sidenote: (I totally stole this idea from Yvonne, hope you don't mind :o) I turned down my very first thing at church. I've always said yes to everything since joining the church 6 years ago but when they called me to teach Relief Society (which is the LDS women's organization) I just couldn't do it. It was only a one time gig and I did ask them to ask me again sometime. She was very nice about it but I can't help but feel guilty. Hopefully the Lord will understand.
