Pickles, Bruises, and Baseball

What a combination of things in our house. Nothing seems to surprise me anymore. Those are three things that have been in abundance here. Maddie is really into eating pickles with everything. I actually have to hide them in the back of the fridge so she can't see them. If I would let her, she would eat one any time the fridge gets open. Bruises are always a constant in our house. When you have a kid like Maddie, they are pretty common. This time it was Emma who got her first major bruise. She was pulling herself up on the toy box and tried reaching in and lost her grip and bumped her cheek and the side of it. She is getting tougher. I think that letting her and Maddie "play" with each other on the floor is helping. Of course baseball is all around us. This past weekend was the Cleveland ISD tournament. Actually the Rotary Club sponsors it, but it is at Cleveland High School. Cleveland is this little podunk town about an hour and 10 minutes from here. The girls and I headed out to the game on Friday afternoon. It was a really good game and they came back and won it, which put them in the championship game on Saturday. We'll just say that the championship game didn't go as well as the game on Friday. The rest of the weekend was just catching up on things here. We cleaned up and pulled some more stuff in the backyard. Today is another baseball game. It is a home game and starts at 6pm, so maybe Chad will be home by 10:30pm, but I'm not holding my breath. Next week is spring break, Chad said the kids are already on it. He is ready for it and I think just a couple of days off from baseball too. This weekend the Wilde's are coming for two nights to see us and they are going to go to NASA on Monday.

Have a great rest of the week and don't forget to set your clocks on Saturday night. Don't worry mom, I know that church is at 8am, not 7am.
