Fall softball is over (huge sigh of relief).  Three practices a week and two games every Sunday made for a very intense, albeit short season.  She loved being a part of the team.  We loved that she was able to play this fall after her injury last spring.
If you asked her she would say volleyball is her favorite sport but since that door was closed to her, through no fault of her own, we are proud of how she has embraced softball.  She is a great kid with and an awesome attitude!  Love her!!

A BAD RAP.....

Just because I don't particularly like play-doh or kids helping in the kitchen or finger painting or.....well you get the picture here, I get a bad rap sometimes.  I will have you know that my kids do get to dye Easter eggs, carve pumpkins and GLITTER things!! 
Yes it is true! 
Tonight's craft was glitter pumpkins/gourds.

We will be picking glitter out of our food for weeks but I think they turned out pretty cute. 
I wonder what else we can glitter around here.
