Another ballgame

It was another night of going down in flames. I think the final was 20-2. Jake hit twice and got out twice. He did great, though. Cody pitched again and he did great for a while. He'll get it and do great all the time. He's got a really good arm.

Emily is here until Tuesday evening. She is so excited to be here. I'm so glad we got her. We'll have to get her more often - it's just so difficult sometimes.

Getting better

Josh seems to feel better this evening. He slept alot today and finally got down from my lap to play after dinner tonight. It was so sweet to hear him laugh and see him dumping balls out of a bucket in our living room floor. He's still got a little tummy troubles, but sooo much better. I just hate it when he's doing nothing but weeping and lying around.

I took the boys to church this morning because they can't miss choir. I hate missing church, but Joshua certainly couldn't go, so that's what Mommy's do, I guess.

Hopefully this week will go quickly. I get Emily from the airport on Friday morning. She is excited to be coming.

I missed the first baseball game ever I've had to miss of Jacob's. It was sad. I was sad. Josh was/is sick. He decided to puke last night all over the bath tub. It was nasty. Then he was up quite a bit last night and then became velcro baby today. I know he felt rotten. He threw up a little bit today and also has a fever.

The boys had a great time, though at their game. I took them down there and dropped them off and the coach brought them home. They lost 18-3, but Jake said Cody played better than ever. That's awesome! Jacob hit an RBI and Cody made a run. That means Cody gets to sleep in on Monday as late as he wants (reward for a hit). If they make a home run, they get to skip school for the day. It would be awesome if one of them did.

Tomorrow is Amy and Jeff's wedding. Hopefully Joshua will be ok to stay the evening with his grandparents while Dena and I go. Hopefully.

Tonight's game...

was really not good. Our boys lost 10-1. At least it wasn't a shut-out. Cody got to pitch! And he did great! He struck out I'm sure of one batter and maybe two. I was really proud of him. I know his Daddy's gonna hate it that he missed it. Oh, well. He won't make Friday's game either. Josh did fine. Better than I expected, but I took his dvd player with me. He tries to get me to get him out of his stroller, but that's a no-go. I don't even want to start it.

Ok, I'm off to bed.

We had our first Bible study tonight!

We have always loved having a small group to be a part of. Since we've moved, it's nearly impossible to get involved in one with our church. They all meet on the first Sunday night of the month. David works about half that time, so if we were to commit to one, we would only make it about six times per year. That's not nearly enough. David came up with the idea to just start a home group of our own. Well, that should have been a no-brainer, but it took us a while for him to come up with it. haha. Anyway, it was just a few friends and us. I made chicken enchiladas and everybody brought something to go with them. We ate and then started a study on Romans. Everybody was in agreement that it was best to just study straight from the Bible. I don't know if I've been in a study before without a book to go along with it. I think that's fine to a degree, but most groups have gotten away from straight Bible study. We loved it and I can't wait until next time!

Everything in our house is not trash!

Joshua has decided that everything needs to go in the trash can. I took my shoes out of there yesterday. The remote control has made it many, many times, along with coasters, sippy cups, Joshua's shoes, a baseball, a mixing bowl and several toys. I've developed the habit of looking every time I pass by. If he keeps it up, I'll have to move the trash to the pantry. I really would rather just train him not to do that, but he's like lightening and I usually don't see it happen! ugh! (he's so darn cute, though!)

Tuesday night's game

I totally forgot to post about this! I'm an awful baseball mom!

The boys did great. Jake had two hits and got out once on third and once at home. Obviously this coach has not been informed that Jacob cannot steal home. One day maybe, but right now, it's just not a good idea. Cody struck out once and walked to first the other time at bat. They both played their positions well, but ended up tied with 9-9. Certainly not as bad as before. I actually didn't get to stay for the whole game. David stayed and I came home with Josh. The game started at 7:30 and went until a little after 9. I have no idea what I'm going to do on Monday - the game doesn't start until 8:10 and David has to work. It may just be a nightmare with Joshua. I don't know - we'll see. He might surprise me - maybe I'll try to get his nap really late that day so he'll be ok.

I just watched something

I just watched a video called Silent Scream. It is a pro-life video made agains abortion. It shows the abortion of a 12 week old baby from a sonogram view-point. The doctor in the beginning explains the process of abortion and then shows the video. I could not believe how graphic a little black and white film could be. There was absolutely no blood that you could see during the procedure, but it hit me in places I didn't know I could be hit. I hear the numbers of how many abortions are performed daily and it doesn't really sink in until I see something like this. Oh, how this grieves God. This world is such a filthy place. It breaks my heart....

I'm praying

for that school to call to set up an interview! I really wanna start looking at homeschool stuff if they aren't gonna be in school. I'm not planning on sending them anywhere else if that school doesn't work out. I'll just keep praying....

Just cuz I love this picture....


The boys had their first game last night. It was not pretty! Well, my boys did great, and the team didn't really do that badly, the other team was just fantastic. I only took about 8,000 pictures. Joshua did absolutely wonderful. He stayed in his stroller the entire time and I didn't have to chase him at all. Every time the other team did anything, he cheered right along with them (ours didn't merit much cheering). I think he thought it was wonderful. It's been a long time since he's been to a game - and the last ones were football. It was fun, even if they lost 20-nothing.

What to do? What to do?

I don't know....

David and I have been looking into a school for the boys. The school is a local charter school. There are only a little under 200 kids. It started as a Christian private school and they went public when they applied for the charter. I went tonight for their open house and open enrollment time. I am fascinated with the school and think it's a really neat place. I spoke to the woman who runs it and she said that most kids graduate early from high school with them. I met the 7th and 8th grade teachers. I've been praying all day and have been comfortable and happy with it all to this point. All of a sudden I was hit with a heart-wrenching "I don't want my boys to be gone during the day" feeling. I don't know. Jacob going to school never really bothered me before. It was just something that happened. I know I also really don't like changes and that's a big one. I don't feel like a failure when it comes to homeschooling, but I don't want to look like I gave up either. I know I haven't and I'll continue praying about it.

Oh, Julie went by to look into it for Trace also, and really, really loved it. She was even told she should put in her application to teach there! I'm so excited for her in her new future. One day maybe I'll post on just her and our history together. She's pretty special.
