Hey Batter Batter!


There's my big boy that plays T-Ball for LLYA's Texas Ranger.
We have just played our 3rd game yesterday. It's been so much fun. You can only image a team of 9 - Four Year Olds. It's so funny to watch. We are scheduled for a practice on Tuesday and then we have our next game on Thursday.
Benjamin is having so much and is doing such a great job. He got a "hit" off Coach Ken's pitch last Thursday and made it to 2nd base. How Awesome.

Yes I know it's been a while

Yes I know I have been a slacker on my blog. I have been soo busy the last month it's just nuts. We have had ball practice at least 2 times a week and then we had the monster truck show one weekend. Then we went on vacation 2 weeks ago to Disney and the NMRA Racing (Mustang thing). This past weekend was opening day at the ball field and I spent all day Saturday at the ball park and when I say all day I mean I got there at 7:30 AM and didn't leave until 7:30 PM - 12 LONG hours there. But it was fun and well worth it. Hopefully I will get the pictures of our vacation and the ball field down loaded tomorrow to share.

I'm going to try to keep up with this blog from now on.

Happy Valentines Day

I hope everyone out there has a happy and wonderful Valentines Day!

We don't have anything planned for the day for "us". I had to go to the ballpark today at 10:00 to help paint and then Benjamin had T-Ball practice at 1:00. Then we are heading to church around 5:00 and then I have no idea.

I also want to tell T. J. Happy 13th Birthday! I can't believe he's a teenager now. I have no idea where the last 13 years has gone.

Benjamin is a Texas Ranger!

Benjamin has been assigned to his t-ball team. It's official he's a Texas Ranger! We are so excited, it would have been better if he was a NY Yankee! That's our baseball team of choice in our household.

We have our first practice this Saturday. Way to go Coach Ken, doesn't he know it's Valentines day. HA HA no not really it's okay since I'll be at the ball park anyway painting.

I'll be sure to post pictures after our practice...

What a cold week it was here in Jacksonville

We had freezing weather since Wed. morning. When I say freezing weather and Jacksonville I'm talking low 20's. Friday morning was the worse frost wise at our house. But it was cold and I don't like it. Someone needs to tell Mother Nature that this is Florida and we are ready for Spring/Summer. I'm ready to retire the sweaters and jeans and bring out the flip flops, capris and short sleeve shirts.

It's been some time since I've been here

I've been so busy with work, baseball field and being a mom.

Yes you read that right baseball field. Benjamin starts T-ball next month and I'm the new Public Relations Director at Lake Lucina aka LLYA where he will be playing ball. For the past two weekends I have spend all day Saturday and Sunday up at the park. We completely redid the T-ball field and it looks awesome. I can't wait for my baby to start playing and neither can he.

As far as work I've been training a new employee. She started 3 weeks ago and has tons of insurance experience I'm just training her on how we do things at our office. It's been great and fine just crazy only 'cause everything takes longer to do when your explaining and answering questions. But it's all worth it as she will be on my work "team" with Paula aka the "A Team" as we have been called.

I'm off now, but will try to be better at this. I'm heading to the craft store with my Mom so we can make some key chains and valentines things

Have a good weekend

It's Monday Already

I can't believe how the weekend just flew by it's now Monday again and it's back to work time. The only problem is this is the first week I will have had to work 5 full days in about the last month or so with all the holidays. This will be a LOOONG week I'm sure. And to top it off the kids all go back to school which means the traffic will pick back up to normal - so whens Spring Break? LOL really it's not that bad for me. I have to take Benjamin to my Mom's which is about 10 Mins. tops away and then drive to work which is another 10 mins top. I don't encounter much traffic.

It's off to work time... Post more this evening about the weekend... It was my birthday on Saturday and we went to Disney! FUN FUN...

Wii Boxing

So "Santa" brought our family a Wii for Christmas this year. We have been having a blast with it. Benjamin loves to bowl and to play his Monster Jam game. Now Joey and I on the other hand are having a blast with the Boxing. Let me tell you it gives you a work out you will not believe. I've told Joey we need to box at least 2 games a night every night.

Here's a video of Joey and I going at it. It's just as fun and funny as it looks...
