The beginning of a routine

Not a whole lot of new stuff to put on the blog.  The kids are doing well with school.  The balancing act with cheer and baseball is working well.  The double headers the kids have are tough to take.  They only play 6 innings but 12 innings of 8 – 10 year olds playing baseball is brutal.  They try but an 8 year old pitcher can burn quite a bit of time off the clock.  Luckily there is a 7 run mercy rule.  Watching 7 kids get walked in with an out or two thrown in takes about a year off your life.

Cheer isn’t too bad as I watch the game behind the cheerleaders in between cheers.  Sam watches me to make sure I am watching her.  I love watching football in person.  I don’t get the strategy most of the time but they play with all they have to give.  Sam is getting better each game.  The contrast between practice and games is funny.  She is all business at the games.

The dogs are doing well.  Candy seems to have gotten used to her smaller foot.  It never really slowed her down much. They are both at Lucky Puppy now and loving it.

Now that Lindsey is watching the kids in the morning they are getting out of bed earlier.  Poor Lindsey.  They talk her into making breakfast, this morning I believe the request was waffles.  If it was me I would just roll into the couch and shove them out the door when it was time for school.

Oh well, I am going to go and try and remember what it was I was supposed not to forget.
