But hot weather gives me the excuse to eat one of my most favorite things: ice cream. (Not that I don't eat it all year round, I just have a slightly-more-valid excuse this time of year). My favorite discovery of late is Ben & Jerry's 3.6 ounce single-serving ice creams. My favorite flavor is Cherry Garcia. And there's a SPOON IN THE LID! Why did no one think of this before! Genius, pure genius! And they're only $1 each.
So, since it's going to be 95 degrees on Saturday, why don't we take twelve 7 & 8 year old girls, put them on a traveling tournament softball team and play 3 games? Done! Claire was invited to join the Cane River Crushers (so named for a local body of water that is actually a lake - Claire would love do give you all the details, but I'll spare you). This is in addition to the little league team she plays on twice a week. (Yes, I am certifiable). This weekend is their first tourney. They'll play 3 games on Saturday and at least one on Sunday, with the possibility of more if they win. Claire is very excited, as she loves the game. I'm looking forward to it, but it will be a challenge to say the least.
