This is the time of year when we always get really busy. So busy that my dreams are usually full of days where I can just stay home and clean my house.
At times, this can make mommy a little grouchy. However, I am really going to just try and enjoy it this year. My kids are growing up way to fast.
On the other hand this makes for a very happy Daddy. This is his favorite time of year. He love, love, love's it, and for the most part so do my kids.
The time of year I am speaking of is Baseball Season.
Opening day is March 8th. Practice has begun and the season is already in full swing.
Once again I am in charge of the Opening Day Carnival. No, I am not crazy. Just a loving wife.
My hubby loves it. Our baseball league always had kind of a boring Opening Day when Zach (16) was little. Four years ago I asked if anyone would mind if I planned a little carnival of sorts to make it a little more fun.
No one minded.
This is now my fourth year. It is bigger and better than ever.
We have Rock Climbing walls, A 40 foot zip line to propel the kids across the sky, a dunk tank, lots of carnival games and of course yummy food just to name a few things.
Yes, I like to do things big.
Surprisingly, no one else wanted to take over this year. I know, I know, you are all amazed that no one would just jump at the chance to be the new Carnival Queen.
Anyway, this is why my blogging has been a little erratic of sorts. I have a carnival to plan, pizza parties to organize, banners to purchase and practices to sit through.
Add to that the fact that Tyler (14) has decided he wants to wrestle next year in High School. Baseball isn't really his thing. Lucky for us the High School has a spring wrestling program for incoming Freshman which meets two nights a week. I am thrilled. Ahem.
Samantha starts a new season of Tennis in a few weeks and I signed Paige up for gymnastics and swim lessons because, well I don't know, perhaps I have developed a hole in my head which makes it impossible to make rationale decisions.
Throw in Zach's High School Baseball schedule, piano lessons, and Garrett's little class he is taking about being babtized and I think you get the picture.
We should sell the house and buy an RV to live in because WE ARE NEVER HOME between February and June.
This leads me back to the calendar.
I added all the kids new activities to it today. I had to use two calendars and hang them side by side.
I believe I can fit house cleaning into the schedule every other Tuesday from 10:00 p.m. - 1:00 a.m..
I really need to remember to take my vitamins.
Next up.....an adoption update.
