Just A Little Date

R2 and I had date night last night. R1 would have gone with us but he has been at camp all week. 

R2 and I went to one of our favorite places where they cook Japanese food on the grill right in front of you. So we ended up ordering two different sushi rolls, soup (I know it's 100 degrees  in Texas but they have the best soup) and shrimp and fried rice. It was yummy!

And then he and I went to the movies to see Inside Out. It was cute and Hubs told me it would probably make me cry. The boys love to make fun of me when I cry at movies. Like at the end of Toy Story 3 when Andy dropped off his old box of toys at Bonnie's house before he left for college and then Woody and Buzz sat on the porch and watched him drive away. Yes I cried. I like a baby crying big crocodile tears I cried. And since we are being honest, it took me about 5 times of watching it before I quit crying at that scene. I still get choked up but no tears. So when the part came that Hubs thought I would cry, R2 looked over at me to make sure I wasn't boo hooing and then proceeds to hand me a tissue. I look at him and tell him I'm not crying. But he didn't believe me and then put his hand up to my eyes to make sure they weren't wet with tears. Oh that boy!

Anyway, It was a great night and he was a perfect gentleman. He even gave me a good night kiss on the cheek.

Girls Gone Coastal Weekend

Two weeks ago a friend of mine invited me to on a girls weekend to the beach. Of course I jumped at that chance and I'm so glad I did. 

There were six of us total and I can not even begin to describe all of the fun we had but I can tell you was there was a lot of laughter, a ton of food, and more memories made than I can count. I'm so thankful I was able to hang out at the beach with them for three days.  

Thanks ladies, until next year!

Ah Sweet Summertime

Well summer is in full effect over here. We've been out of school for almost a week and things haven't slowed down at all. 

R1 has summer baseball twice a week and workouts every morning. R2 started Rocket camp yesterday. And in a few weeks R2 starts his summer tutoring program again.

And in a few more weeks R1 leaves for camp. He comes home for a few days and then leaves again for another camp. 

I love summertime. I like there are really no set schedules to keep. We do not have to be up at a certain time. Things are kinda spur of the moment. Which is a nice pace compared to the crazy that is known as the school year. 

So with that, I hope y'all have a great summer with some wonderful family time.

And Just Like That, He's a Sophomore

Yesterday was R1's last day of school as a Freshman. Where did the school year go? I swear it feels like he was just starting his high school career. One year gone, poof, under his belt, no longer the underclassman. 

I can not even begin to tell you how proud I am of him this year. He made all A's most of the year and if not all A's then it was all A's and one B. He was involved in so many school functions and extra curricular activities that I never knew if we were coming or going. He only missed one day of school. He also received several awards at the awards ceremony.

I watched him make decisions that will ultimately affect his future. I watched him step up to the plate when it mattered the most, on and off the baseball field. And the best part of all was I had a front row seat to cheer him on.

I love you R1! You make me and your daddy so proud. Congratulations on all of your accomplishments this year. They are hard earned and well deserved!

It's Been Busy

The title of this post says it all. Actually it is kind of an understatement. 

The boys have been involved in sports that have kept us on the go more than I care to be. While I love sitting at their games and cheering them on, we have been away from home these past two months more than I want. I love to go and do things but sometimes you just want to be a homebody and stay in your comfort place and take care of your people. 

R1's regular baseball season ended a few weeks ago. He and his team had an amazing season, 8-0. WHOOP! He did a fabulous job behind the plate. I could not be any more proud of him. So now it is on to summer ball. 

R2, well he's still going strong. Basketball season has ended. It was a long season but totally worth it. I mentioned he made All Stars and the tournament was last week. His team lost early but he played with more heart and left everything on the court. Long story short, he got sick last week with strep and played through the first game not feeling 100% and finally just said he couldn't play anymore. As a side note, he played that game before I took him to the doctor. I'm not one of those parents like on Friday Night Tykes that yells at their kid to suck it up and get out there, no excuses! Well I did tell him to suck it up until I could find him some Tylenol or Advil. He is still playing baseball and so far they have only lost one game. Not to shabby for a bunch of 9 and 10 year old kids.

So between both boys and three sports with games and practices it has been extra busy around here for the past two months. Oh and let's throw in there a field trip, an awards ceremony, a banquet, and field day just to add to the craziness. 

However, I see the light at the end of the tunnel, never mind that's just a glare from the sun. 

Y'all have a great and I'll see you in a few weeks when school has ended.

My Catcher's

It is baseball season and I could not be any happier. My boys are playing ball and my Astros are back on TV. All is right with my world again. 

For the first time ever both boys are catching. R1 been catching since he was 8 or 9 and R2 is following in his footsteps starting this year. R2 isn't playing catcher all of the time but he is learning. 

These boys make me proud every time they step on the field. 

 R1 doing his thing.


 And R2 doing his thing.

One Of My Favorite Days Of The Year
