T-Ball Practice

Cora had her first practice. She had a great time. She got to field the ball, throw it and bat. In her mind, Monday was practice and then on Tuesday her coach was going to take her to their game on the bus. I guess one positive thing is she has learned her days of the week or at least game days! LOL.

It was nice to sit and watch her play and have fun. During her practice, Jantz on other hand could not understand why he couldn't play yet! So he & Daddy decided to play catch, well that lasted one throw, yes Botos tossed the ball and Jantz missed. The ball went over the top of his glove and BAM busted lip!!! So playing catch w/Daddy didn't last long.

Practice ended and so Cora got in the car and here is our conversation:
Me: Did you have fun?
Cora: NO! Its not fair.
Me: What's not fair?
Cora: I don't want to play anymore.
Me: why not?
Cora: We don't have positions, where we are supposed to be, nor do we know where to field the ball! We don't have the dirt like Daddy's field. Our field is all grass and nasty looking!!
Me: You know who to talk to don't you?
Cora: no who?
Me: Your Daddy!!!

So we make it home that evening, and I looked at Cora and asked her if she had something to ask her Daddy? Of course she had forgotten. So after a few hints she "members-re". Same story as above. Big Daddy's response: When you get better? u get to play on better fields? Cora: Oh,,,ok. Needless to say she hasn't hit a t-ball practice since then plus she has CRIED at every practice!!! urrrggghhh...

Easter Weekend

Had a wonderful Easter Weekend. Friday had school 1/2 day, was a great home, took a nap, got up did nothing. Loved it!!! Got up Saturday morning and headed to Tulia. Attended the Bobcat baseball game: man, those Bobcats can battle and it was a great game. Super proud of the boys. Cora & Jantz played the entire time, but no homemade mud was made this year! lol. After the game, we headed over to my brother's house. The kids played so hard. The weather turned out to be great, little chilly that morning but turned out to be a beautiful day. While I at my brothers, I walked w/the kids plus Luke down to the little park close by their house and watched the kids throw bouncy balls up the slide. Luke got the biggest kick out of that. Then the color of their cheeks started to tell me that it was time to head back home. So we did. Got inside and the Men's final four games begin, so we had supper and hung out in the AC for awhile. We had a great time. Then it was getting late so the kids & I loaded up and headed home. Jantz didn't make it to the City Limit sign, he was OUT!! But miss Thing, she talked to me all the way home!!! Imagine that...

Sunday rolled around and we made it thru church!!! Yes, so excited about that, may not have heard one word of the sermon but we made it through. AFter church, headed over to Nanna's (Botos' mom). Kids hunted eggs and then Cora through a fit. So we went home had a talk and then she got to go back over and play. Love Love my neighborhood!!! I know my kids are only 3 &4, but they rode their bikes back & forth to Nanna's, our house, & to my parents. next thing I knew, there were 7-8 kids all riding bikes all over the neighborhood. Its a safe neighborhood and everyone watches out for each other.

Then about 3, I had four little kiddos show up all of the wet!!! So I took them out back and hooked up a water hose to the slide and placed a kiddy pool underneath the end of the slide and the kids had a blast... "Redneck Waterpark!" Next thing we did was place a water sprinkler under neath the trampoline. Kids had so much, but I had fun sitting there watching them giggling, falling, and getting Sun burnt!!! oh-no. Yes...they all got burnt, especially red (Aaron). Yes, he is a little sore today. Speaking of Aaron... he reached his 100 POINTS of AR this past weekend!!! Super duper proud of him...he has worked his butt off.

After playing in the water-park, we headed over to my parents for a awesome dinner. Afterwards, the kids & I headed to Wal-Mart so they could spend their allowances. Big deal for them. Cora got nails...Jantz got train carts for his Thomas the Train set. While we were checking out, Cora paid and got change back. No big deal. Well Jantz went to pay for his and he went over!!! So she did give him any change back. He kept telling the lady,"Give me my change!" I had to tell him he went over, anyways, he could quit grasp that he didn't get to get change back. LOL... They also got new shoes. Man, how their feet have grown!!! Jantz got home, put on his spider-man shorts, to go along w/His spider-man shoes!!! He could run so fast and stop on a dime. Cracking me up!!! Cora on the other hand, got on her clothes and shoes and then they were racing and then seeing who could stop first!!! lol until they messed up the cable to the TV and big Daddy Botos stepped in said NO MORE!!! lol

Finally after all the running and baths, those two kids crashed so fast & hard. LOL... love those kids to death. Cora starts T-ball practice today, she is so excited!!!! I am too, but then again Jatnz can't quite understand that he doesn't get to play just yet!!! Oh lord help me...

Until next time...Mammabotos
