9/10 Ola Henry Co. Tournament Champions!!

WOW! I wasn't expecting this. It was a hot weekend of the ball field. I got alittle much needed sun. 9/10 Braves did awesome. We played some real baseball. We finished 1st in our age group then completed our regular season in first with a record of 9-3! Way to go Big "T"!!

I can't believe the lengths that some coaches and teams would go to to win. We played a team that would just knock the heck out of our players hoping that they would drop the ball. Trent was playing short stop and caught a runner in a "pickle" trying to steal 3rd. Trent ran him down and the guy just bulldozed Trent knocking him into the ground. But Trent never let go of the ball. Then the other team's coach threw a ball that was in his pocket out on the ground hoping to confuse the umps into thinking that the ball was dropped. It was nuts..... he got a warning but I thought he should have been thrown out. By the end of that championship game I was shocked that Brett nor I had completely lost our cool.

Rock Spring Field Day

This is the first year that I have had both kids in the same school, doing the same types of activities. Trying to balance everyone's calendar is getting tougher and tougher as they get older. This week I decided to take both field day's off to go and help out. Boy am I tired. We all had fun though.

I was amazed at how athletic Alyssa is. It's a shame she can't play sports. She would be very good at it. She is super fast... the fasted girl in her class. Her team also won the tug of war.... she was so excited.
 When you get into the older grades.... it is on.... they are so competitive.
Trent's best race was the jump roping race. He tore it up.... Alot of the boys just aren't coordinated to jump and run at the same time. It was funny.
Trent and his friend, Logan.
Needless to say... both days I went home and took a nap.

Kindergarten is finally coming to an end! Tonight was Alyssa's end of the year program.
Their theme was rainbow. Each class was represented with their own color. Alyssa's class was orange and her cousin, Dylan's was purple.

Alyssa with Ms. Calhoun and Ms. Staton.
When I asked for a "silly" face this is what I got. They actually could be twins.They are the same height and really favor eachother.

Yesterday was Ola Baseball day @ Turner Field. It was hot... but worth it!
We even were brave enough to take Taz with us. She did good but next time she said that she will stay with Nanny.

Trent's in the middle of the screen.

Mother's Day At Stone Mountain

One of my favorite places in Georgia is Stone Mountain. This mother's day we took a trip there. We had a great time.

We started with a picnic. It was alittle chilly in the shade.

Jekyll Island

Well I did it!  Yesterday, I sent Trent on a 3 day field trip with his class without Brett or I. County rules state that only Dads can go with sons and Moms can go with daughters on overnight trips. I was really nervous about sending him but I have known his chaperone for several years and he was a fellow Mudcat coach so all was good. and Yes.... Brett could have went... but let's face it... he doesn't even like to watch his own two so I would have never sent him to watch over 3 or more kids that weren't his own. lol.

I guess when Alyssa is in the fourth grade I can go with her... Lord knows they wouldn't let her go without me.

After Trent was gone Alyssa said... Mom, I know I kick and hit Trent alot... but I wish that he would come home so we could play.  Maybe sweet girl you should be nicer to him when he is here.

So far I got a picture via text of him holding a snake. He looked terrified.

Homerun Derby

Last weekend Trent participated in the Ola Homerun Derby. He knocked 2 over to give him 3rd place overall!
Way to go Trent!

I can't believe that there is only 2 weeks left of school! WOW! This year has flown by. My kids can't wait for summer. Alyssa longs for the days in the pool at her "old" school.

The Tooth Fairy

Funny story....

Alyssa has an extremely loose tooth. The other night she was determined to pull it. She tried and tried to wiggle it out but it was simply not ready. Finally around 10pm I told her to stop and just go to bed. I laid down with her to help reassure her that the tooth wasn't going anywhere and that it would be there in the morning.
As we laid there she said...."Momma, Olivia said that our parents are really the tooth fairy and that there is no such thing as the tooth fairy." I was shocked and quickly asked, "Why does she think that?" Alyssa then proceeded to tell me that Olivia had written the tooth fairy a letter and asked if she was real to take the letter. The next morning.... Olivia found the letter and the tooth on her mom's dresser.....
I then asked Alyssa, "Well what do you think?"  With missing a beat... "Momma, I know you are not the tooth fairy because I looked through all your drawers and I didn't find anything!"

Guess Santa will have to be on his toes this year.

MOOVe Over Cancer

Relay for Life 2010

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives people across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event, because cancer never sleeps.

Trent raised the 3rd highest amount in the school for Relay for Life. Because of that he got to pie a Beta Club member in the face during his schools Mini-Relay. It was so funny. He was extremely nervous and excited at the same time.
Of course... Alyssa thought that was hilarious.
Friday night was the Henry County Relay for Life.
Team Rock Spring Elementary.... Moove Over Cancer was our motto.
Our team had over 75 members! It was a great time to reflect on those whom we have lost and our fiends that continue to fight this horrible disease.
