Be Pretty

Ava always asks me to leave her messages on her chalkboard by her bed - today, I told her to be pretty.

Aggie Softball

Saturday, we went to Aggieland.  Voluntarily!  Crazy right?  But some of the girls from Carli's softball team were going to watch the Aggie's play Oklahoma State and asked if we wanted to go.  We were surprised with the girls said yes!  So we went.  The car ride there was the longest part of the trip but we managed with a pit stop or two and a whole lot of singing and finding tractors and cows for Drew!


I was very surprised that the girls actually watched the game.  It was a good game to watch.  Lots of hits and plays.  The Aggies run ruled Oklahoma.  And I have to admit, the Aggie softball girls did an amazing job of making the time and effort to meet their little fans.


After playing an awesome game, they came out of the locker room and were bombarded by a crowd of little softball players. They each took time to talk to the girls signing balls and taking pictures. Our girls were in awe and as parents, we were so thankful to these older girls for not only being awesome players on the field, but awesome role models off the field.


So while we aren't normally Aggie fans, today we became Aggie Softball fans because these girls helped to make the game of softball a little more fun and real for our little softball girls!

A Ruined View

When our neighbor messaged us to say they were cutting the trees down across from our house, all we could think about was at least we were going to get neighbors out of the deal.  Turns out we didn't.  The owners of the empty lots in our neighborhood decided to clearcut the lots to get money from the timber.  :(  They'd have made more money if they simply come off their asking price.  So now our view is not so pretty and to make matters worse they just left the mess of stumps, limbs and branches.  It does not look pretty at all.  :(


The only bright note was that Drew thoroughly enjoyed waking up from his nap to sit on my desk to watch "Pa's" trucks work.  He is usually very cranky waking up from naps so it was a nice break from the usual 30 minutes of whining we typically endure!

Cow Bell

It's a pretty big deal when you hit the cow bell at Coach Jeff's & it's even more impressive when you hit it while doing the chair drill!
