Slacking...

Well, I have been slacking this week on my blog but I can't decide if I truly put down what I am actually thinking or what has happened to me. I am doing this blog as a journal or I am the one writing in it so I guess it doesn't matter, what do you think?

Tuesday we had a volleyball game, JV lost but Varsity won. The coach didn't start certain kids because they were late...she proved a point. Now that brings me to my point... I guess I don't jive with v-ball coaches that don't have kids. I don't know...I don't feel as I do anything any different or slack in any way...but it makes me mad...to the point of being pissed. But I don't do anything, I keep shut or can't think of anything until afterwards...sometimes I wish I had some balls like my husband or Amanda or Bowman...you can all speak your mind and get your point across very well.

Wednesday was the news of "slacking" but the day ended great...my husband (football coach) beat me home from practice ??? I drove up and my family were sitting outside and the kids were playing, riding toys a nd pushing Tonka trucks and playing bumber cars. I love outdoors and the front porch... the weather has been great but those dang mosquitoes...eat me alive & my kids. Well I put in lasagna in the oven and did my cooking for the evening along with a salad & pizza from 2 nights ago...so it was Italian Night.

View's from the "FRONT PORCH" ....this what I see from y front porch...my kids laughing & playing. Cora speeding away on her pink bike and directing traffic & giving orders. Jantz is all boy...hunkering down w/a mean face ready to tackle anyone or anything in his way or it doesn't matter whats in his way, he will go out of his way to hit it or run over it. Jantz learned how to pedal the bike or hot wheels tricycle...he was excited & we were excited for him....a simple "way to go" and his smile went from ear to ear. Love those moments...

Other views from the front porch...seeing people drive by, waving, & smiling watching the kids be kids. I think that is awesome...some people aren't around small children or have grandchildren that they don't see everyday, so when they ours running around I'm sure it puts a happy thought in their minds to looking forward to seeing their grandkids. Also, some of those people will stop in the middle of the road to visit or just to say 'hello'. Many conversations happen on the front porch. With the weather being cooler, I challenge you to sit on the front porch, browse the internet, fixing up the yard, or playing catch w/kids. Some will say that is what a backyard is for but no one ever knows if your out or not due to a fence to the backyard facing an alley that no one goes down. Backyards are for more privacy, but every now & then just sit on the front porch or go drive around and look at some awesome front porches that don't ever get used. I wish my was bigger but I'm sure someday it will. Patience & money!! right babe...?

Thursday, pretty relaxing day. In P.E. we are doing an obstacle course & Coach Gaylor made up an awesome one...just to demonstrate he & I were out of breath but my "highlight" of the week goes to Coach Inman & her husband Luke...they decided to compete and go through the course, being very two great athletes...it was neck & neck. At one point in the course, you have to jump through hool-a-hoops & if you knock it over you have to do 10 push-ups...they both knocked over the same one...it was great! But Luke prevailed!!! right after he got done...he was out the door...breath hard...very hard to where you can't catch your breath....I was laughing but the kids in class enjoyed every moment of it.

Also, took the kids to the park yesterday, there were kids their that are in my P.E. classes, so of course they were calling me "Coach Botos", then I heard Cora say 'Coach Botos watch me"...the other kids started laughing but she did get my attention...it was sweet. I hung out at the park w/the kids and my sister Lori.... what an awesome sister. Love ya sister....& if you ever hear us talk in a weird tone about a snake, just ignore us...when we are quiet or in a bad mood one of us will say "There's a snake in my boot"....you reply "what's your snake name?" you just have to hear us...we both get to giggling so hard that we have to stop & laugh. Crazy girls!!!

Friday...football takes on the Fritch Eagles, can't decide to go or not...probably stay home and do laundry like I was supposed to have done last night. Who knows!!! Everyone have a great weekend and live life to the fullest!!!

LIVE...LAUGH...LOVE

Until tomorrow.... Mama Botos
