Checking In...

Okay, so I haven't blogged for awhile. This is due to the fact that I really don't have much to report. We're still leaving and breathing baseball. Claire's team (they're sponsored by a local bank, but they've dubbed themselves the Supergirls) is undefeated & in first place. Claire is having a blast and they're really good! You wouldn't think that winning is that big of a deal at this age, but of course it is. Especially when there's an All-Star game and a postseason! Nolan is doing great as well, in spite of the drama that ensued with some of his coaches. Apparently, one of the dads didn't think we were being competitive enough and needed to have practices in addition to the 2 games they play each week. Most of the parents, including us, didn't agree. All this in a "Wee-Tee" league where you don't keep score and everyone wins.

Kelly's Demons are still going strong, tied for 1st place in their division. Looks like we'll be headed to Texas near the end of May for the Conference tournament. Actually, we'll celebrate Nolan's 5th birthday while we're there. He'll be thrilled: spending his bday with 30 college baseball players who wrestle and play with him. Throw in a few Transformers and it'll be a perfect day.

Claire & I attended a Mother-Daughter tea party last Saturday at a Victorian tea room. It's a beautiful home filled with antiques and treasures. The best part was the "dress-up room". It's filled with dresses, purses, hats and jewelry and the girls got to dive in. We truly enjoyed it. I'll post some pics soon.

Work is good, life is busy. Things will begin to wind down after this month. NSU finals begin tomorrow and my workload will lighten as the students head out. Claire & Nolan are done with school May 21st and NSU baseball concludes shortly after. We're moving out of our town home after the conference tournament, the last week of May. We've found a great little house in the middle of a large wooded lot. It's secluded and shaded (we'll love that come July!). The kids have acres & acres to run and play and we'll actually have room to, well, live! We're all very excited.

So that's an update. It's Spring, and it feels like it! Hope you're feeling Spring too! Until later...
