Heading for a New Sport

Baseball is finally over for my boys, but not for Bossy's family. Both of her boys are still playing. Burrito's team is in the championship game tomorrow and Taco also has a game. His tournament is single elimination so if they lose, he is done too.

Curly was pretty heartbroken over their loss tonight. We were assigned to play the toughest team in the Herriman 7-year-old league. When we arrived at the field, they didn't look that intimidating. In fact, we scored a couple of runs in the first inning and things were looking pretty good.

Then they scored 3, but the game was still close and the boys were excited. Coach had been playing Curly on third, but all of the balls were being hit to shortstop, so the second inning he moved him over there.

We were finally ahead, but it didn't last long. Their boys could hit and they scored 6 runs, ending the inning without 3 outs. Curly did an amazing job at shortstop, stopping every ball, the problem was that his friends were not paying attention when he made the throw to the base. Not that every throw was perfect, but some of them were highly-catchable balls.

Curly has become an awesome batter this season and hit the ball hard every time he was up. We scored 4 runs total to their 15 and they called the game in the bottom of the 4th using the mercy rule. Curly cried most of the way home. He didn't really understand that a loss meant the end of the season. Only team parties left to try to schedule in.

Speaking of parties, today is Sport's birthday and he turned 12 years old. I took him to Chick Fil A for breakfast and when I told them it was his birthday, they comped the whole meal! We are mostly celebrating his birthday on Friday with his friend party and Saturday night with the family.

Princess, Prima Donna, and Crafty are leaving for a simulated pioneer trek tomorrow. Last time they had an activity like this we stayed up all night and then took them to the church at 4:30 in the morning. This time just Prima Donna and I decided to stay up. They aren't leaving until 6:30, and I'm starting to get tired. I just finished making 3 bonnets, a skirt and an apron.

I know, nothing like leaving it until the last minute. The more I try to get ahead, the more I realize how behind I really am. And how is your week going?
