School days...

So the time has come again. School starts in a week and as much as I look forward to having something to keep me from being a total bum, I am really going to miss my days with Logan. We really had a good time playing this summer. He is learning so many new words and behaviors; it just amazes me how much he takes in each day. Preplanning begins tomorrow and I got a little bit of a headstart this morning. I'm looking forward to catching up with friends and hearing about their summers. I'm also looking forward to a new group of kids. I know that this is going to be a great year. I have some new ideas for things I want to do this year, and I'm hoping that my kids all have a great attitude and are always trying their best. I'll write again tomorrow to tell about my first day back.

Baseball Madness

My two year old son is more obsesssed with baseball than most grown men. He loves to hit, throw and catch the ball. He plays baseball at the dinner table with straws and forks for bats and the wadded up straw paper for his ball. I even used my straw as a tee one night at dinner, and he loved it. During the home run derby Monday night, Logan saw the pitchers taking balls from the bucket to pitch so Logan pretended to take one from the basket in the tv and throw it. He has better form than me and has the perfect bat flip so that when he does hit his first home run, he'll be ready to trot around the bases.

Right now, Logan has two gloves, about 10 different sized bats and about 40-50 different balls to play with. Most of those are outside and the rest are on their way to the outside bucket because he is just too good. By the time he plays t-ball, Logan is going to run circles around most of the other kids. I can see everyone on the team playing in the dirt and whining about being bored while Logan is getting mad because they are not paying attention or make mistakes. It will be then that he gets a good lesson in sportsmanship and cooperation. We hope to sign him up next spring right before he turns 3, but I doubt that there will be enough kids for a pre-tee league so it might have to be another year.

Logan is telling me he is ready for lunch now, so I better go.

Well, I have been feeling very reflective lately. There are so many things I have experienced and people that I have been blessed to know that I don't see anymore that have just got me thinking. This blog will probably be a little bit of those thoughts, descriptions of my sweet boy and silly husband and anything and everything random that is me. I hope that those of you who choose to follow this blog are entertained and maybe you'll get to know a little more about me along the way. More to come soon...
