News From the Homefront
Well, summer is in full swing here, or I should say summer is trying to be in full swing. We had four inches of rain Sunday night which canceled more baseball games. We should be like halfway through our schedule and here we have only played one game.
We have been spending time outside in the evening practicing our batting. One of his coaches recommended that we get an old tire and have him stand on it while batting, thus teaching him to keep his feet still and helping with balance. We also went and got this broomstick type bat and really small woffle balls, which are supposed to help. I don't know how much this has all helped, but we are definitely having fun with the practice and getting in a lot of family time without the x-box or the computer.
Of course no practice would be complete without Murphy the Diva lying right in the middle of everything relaxing.
I am busily stitching on my newest LHN design that I do not know the name of. It is almost finished and if I got off of the computer for one little bit it would probably be done. The design has the verse telling about the colors of the flag and what they mean. I am also currently crocheting an afghan for a Christmas gift.
Jonathon has had the summer bug that is going around. One day he had a fever of 101.7 and then it stayed low grade for the next couple of days. He was signed up to do a 5k that Saturday. When Saturday morning came around he said he wanted to participate, I think he wanted to run because he and a friend has signed up together. Wellllllll, that turned out not to be a good idea. It was very hot and humid that morning and he definitely wasn't up to running 3+ miles. He walked most of it- crossed the finish line- asked to go to McDonald's for breakfast-came home took a shower and laid on the couch the rest of the day.
