I'm Back (I think)
Sorry I have not posted since last week. We have been very wrapped up in Little League All Stars. Our school district has only been involved with Little League for 6 years and my youngest son was in on the ground floor (the year prior to that he played in AABC for a team that went all the way to regionals- Joey didn't play much be he learned a lot). Our first year we sent a team in each age division to All-Stars and Joey's age group was the only one to win a game. Since then our All-Star teams have won in round one but never beyond. Well, this year we made it all the way to round 4 before being knocked out. Pretty much the same group of kids ( a few were too old and are playing JV at the high school) since we have so few to choose from. To give you an example- one district in our division has 10 teams at the Junior Baseball level from which to select their All-Stars from. We have two. Our entire school district (k-12) has just about 1000 students. Yet, we managed to beat teams from school districts that have had Little League programs for 50 and more years. Sadly, several areas within our district didn't even send teams to All-Stars because they felt they had no chance to win. Well, if our LL had taken that attitude 6 years ago we wouldn't be where we are now....and building. Next year will be the first time we field a team (or maybe two) in the Senior age group thanks to a president who wants to see our program grow (thanks Rod!!) I know my baseball loving younger son will be out there and my older son, Jamie (who is already a professional travel hockey and high school track coach and he is still in college) has offered to coach Joey's team.

But, for now, the season is over and we move on to other, golf, the family vacation then back to school!! Oh my- I will be sending my baby off to high school....darn (please note-, VERY BIG, grin).

    I wanted to let you know that I just e-mailed you a copy of the ring code from the RingSurf admin. site. You’re listed as a member of the Fiber Arts Bloggers webring, but your blog is in the queue at the moment as you haven’t the ring code up on your blog. If you want to e-mail me when you have the ring code back up and whatnot, I’ll check it out and get you back into the ring as quickly as I can. Let me know if you need any help!

    Congratulations to the boys and the dedicated adults who've helped them get this far! My husband has coached AAU basketball here in our small town - the first year they struggled to get 8 kids to turn out and they had to play teams that had 150-kid tryouts and picked the best 12. We completely understand that underdog frustration and how sweet it is to win.

    I know not all kids are athletically inclined (I wasn't) but for those that are, sports can have such a positive influence on their lives. It's been a wonderful thing all through school for my stepdaughter AshLee and now she's headed off to college to run track.

    Finally, congratulations to you - sports seasons wreak havoc on family life but it sounds like you've handled it beautifully. And now you get a much-deserved break!

Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
