I THINK IT WAS AROUND BRANDTS BIRTHDAY I TOOK HIM SOME BALLOONS AND ONE LITTLE GIRL SAID WHERE ARE OUR BALLOONS…I TRIED TO EXPLAIN IT WAS A SPECIAL DAY FOR BRANDT BUT PROMISED BEFORE SCHOOL WAS OUT I WOULD BRING THEM ALL A BALLOON….

My Insy Wensy Zozobug

Last yr 2011 i spent most of july running back and forth to bozeman in hopes of being present when this one and only grandaughter arrived… she tried and tried to get here early but it kept getting later and later and she finally came on aug 3.. oh what a day it was….there is nothing like a birth to restore you . esp if your not the one giving birth…. its exhausting excruciating and exhilarating…all in one little 5 lb bundle… marcie was a champion and went thro with flying colors… since she was a little girl all she wanted was to be a mom and aug 3 that dream came true..she has enjoyed these 10 months to the max.. even the sleepless nights and ear infections. and going back to work to soon… its all been worth it over and over…. i fell in love with her the minute she arrived and have been going to bozeman,,, skyping,,, talking to her on the phone ever since…i believe she said nana before she said dadad…hahah derek,,you should have worked harder…when she holds her little hands out for me to take her and then points outside it cracks me up…she knows ill give in…that smile and laugh priceless and those beautiful blue eyes are just like her mama..in fact derek was looking at pictures in the hallway and said well theres what zozo looks like…her mama…. thank you God for such a precious bundle of joy you gave us..its like having marcie all over again….

MY FAVORITE THINGS

June means alot of things but one of my favorites is baseball…. my first baseball experience was with my great nephew Dally,,,and T ball.. right off the bat i got in trouble..i went out and was behind the picture taking pictures of my dally…i never liked that fat pitcher guy after that much..got good pictures…. then Tanna tried her hand at tball and alec came along and then the dandelion picker kaylee bug…but oh has it been fun going to Idaho to watch 3 of my grandsons play for the HaydenMeadows little league..all three are pitchers,catchers and hitters….and to top it off the youngest grandson bman is in rookies…. ive seen great improvements in all the boys this yr…i read 10 life lessons baseball can teach kids.
1) FAMILY TIME..how much fun is it to be out on a sat morning watching all these kids do something healthy and good… i love concessions and hayden has a great concession stand…whatever kids arent playing enjoy nanas. pocket..can i get a cheeseburger,,,??
2) MAKE FRIENDS you see these kids making new friends and becoming less shy …and in the stands the moms are becoming girlfriends all over..
3)DEDICATION AND COMMITMENT if you want to play you have to be to practice,, be enthusiastic,, be a good sport and really be all there
4) RESPECT..respect your coach, umpires, other coaches, your team mates, your parents..and yourself
5) WIN SOME LOOSE SOME.. this is a good lesson…we cant win every time we do something..thats not how life is…get up ,, dust yourself off and shake the other guys hand saying Good Job…Great game.
6)NO I IN TEAM… playing on a team is awesome for everyone.. even the best players cannot be single,,they need everyone on the team to make it work…parents need this lesson prob. more than kids because we always think our johnny should be…..
7)KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE BALL focus .. whatever we do in life we need to focus and be our best…
8) SOMETIMES YOU GOTTA GET DIRTY get in there and gether done
9)PRACTICE IS HARDWORK…whether youre playing the piano, or learning to hit a ball it all takes practice
10) PATIENCE rome wasnt conquered in a day….you will get it just be patient.. wait for the ball to come to you..dont swing to soon…

i just thought those were good. It was so fun taking Brandt to watch Keat play ,,he loved it and loved being with the cousins so much he wished his game would get cancelled so we could stay one more night with the cousins…..
