June 6th

Today, not much happened. Slept in, didn't get up to eat breakfast.  I was awaken from a phone call from Botos and the Kids screaming into the phone, "WAKE UP MOMMY! WAKE UP!" it was the sweetest voices ringing thru the phone. All I could do was smile and giggle. I got up and headed to TOYS 'R US... the kids had told me that they wanted a surprise but yet tell me exactly what their surprises were to be.  Cora wants Make-up (she says she won't eat it this time?) and Jantz wants motorcycles or monster jams. (trucks). 

So I am in the store walking around wondering if I should actually get what they asked for or get them something else. Botos and I were talking the other day about getting them a wooden guitar.. they have been watching CMT and like to play and sing. Sooo I found a couple of those but WOW expensive. So I called Botos and the bottom line is he said to get what they want.. Ok. I did. found it all on the clearance aisle. 

Had a relaxing day after that... had lunch at the Hula Hut... OMG... awesome food and fun atmosphere.  If you are ever in Austin, where they keep it weird, u must go and eat at the Hula Hut. 

Then of course we headed back to the mall. I finally got my metal/ink thing majingy off... and walked around the mall for the next 2 hours trying on about oh... 10 swimsuits! So depressing, watch out F3 here I come!!! lol.

Well I have packed, showered, talked to my kiddos TWICE, and ready to go to bed so that we can get on the road to head HOME!!! 

Until next time... Mamabotos.

June 5th

What a day! Had a wonderful breakfast here at the hotel. Then we headed to the track to watch the ladies run. What a nervous wreck Coach K was.. so funny. But the girls made it to state, what an honor to be running at the State Track Meet in Austin in front of thousands of people!!! I told the girls I was jealous. The ran a great race and ended up getting 6th. Finished 6th in the top of Texas is not bad at all!!!!  Vicki ran a great race in the 200m, what a close race. Very proud of the Lady Cats, job well done. 

Sitting up in the stands, watching all these great athletes warm-up & run, makes me wonder if one of my kids will ever have that opportunity to run at the State Meet? I think some parents take that for granted of their kids running at State, some parents live their dreams through their kids, which is sad. As for me, I don't care if my kids do not participate in Athletics.. haha. But I don't think I am going to have a choice.. lol. I mean they already compete to the front door, who can get out of the car first, take a bath the quickest, eat their food the fastest, race to bed, going to sleep first... every where I turn they are competing. 

I miss my kids. I talked to them today twice on the phone and u know, I can barely tell them apart on the phone! Until Cora says I want Make-up Momma for my surprise and Jantz wants me to come home now... Cora also let me know that I only took her to 1 track meet this year, oops,, good memory. She loves to go go go!  Jantz on the other hand wants a  Monster Jam truck...  I am so ready to get home and get great big  hugs from them... their little arms squeeze your head off. ohhh i love it!  

Good night Cora, Jantz & Botos. I miss you too! I know the kiddos are probably driving you insane but your a great dad & hubby. I know that my kids are in great hands. I love you sbdwb!

Until next time... Mamabotos

June 4th

Well, we left for the State track meet today. Girls run on Friday at 6 and Donte jumps at 3. So exciting to have kids at the State Meet, for themselves & representing Childress.  We made it in, had track practice, & headed to the mall. Great kids to take in public. They are fun as well. 

All week I have been doing Lady Cats basketball camp. I had the young girls, 3rd-5th. So much fun, I love watching the younger girls get better and surprise themselves when they say "I can't" and then they end up doing it! Little faith and determination goes a long way. I love working camps and I have been fortunate to work some BIG camps in my days. In college, we had to stay the month of June, work 4 weeks of camp in a row w/about 100 kids each week. So many girls I have met and now that they are older & coaching now its crazy. Cause you know they don't care if you played or how many points you had. They remember the camps, the one on one relationship and fun times at camp. Then I was fortunate to work Baylor Lady Bears Camp for 3 years, also when they won the National Championship!!! Awesome!!! 

Things happening at the Botos house is that we have been planting flower beds, planting grass, & basically finishing up things around the house that was damaged from last summer's storm. I just pray that we don't have another storm like that. 

While planting our new flower bed, the kids were able to dig for worms, which Jantz has named wiggilies... haha. So darn cute. I have enjoyed my first week of summer w/the kiddos and my husband. I am looking forward to going camping and working a firework stand this summer. The Botos' will be at Hwy 83/FM 164 (prison road). Grand Opening on the 24th of June!! So come on out and buy some fireworks!!! 

Until next time... Mamaabotos
