Oglesby Little League celebrated their opening day on Saturday. It was a bit windy, but the sun was shining and overall it was a beautiful day. The teams walked in a mini-parade through town to the softball diamonds where everyone was introduced. We ran home for a quick lunch before heading to Bo’s first game of the season.
This is Bo’s second season playing T-ball and this year he is on the red team, State Farm. He has been asking about T-ball since February so he’s thrilled that the season has started. His skills and knowledge of the game have definitely increased since last year, but I don’t think we have a future baseball star on our hands. But who knows I guess, if it’s something he really wants to do I’m sure he can do it.
Clara and Anna were both really good. They enjoyed watching the parade and all of the “big kids” and even sat in their own little folding chairs and watched the game. They are definitely easier to control than they were last year! Granted, I distracted them with snacks, but hey, they were sitting for nearly an hour.
Bo has pictures and his second game this evening. Clara, Anna, and I will be staying home as I don’t think the game will be over until nearly 8 — later than the trio’s bedtime, especially on a school night. I think it will be a fun season and Bo is enjoying it — which is all that really matters!
The school year is quickly drawing to a close and Bo is registered for Kindergarten next year. We’ve officially decided to send the kids to private school — to Catholic school. I’d like to say that this was an easy … Continue reading

I took this pano photo of our deck this morning with my iPhone. It doesn’t really look crooked like that — it’s basically square — but I couldn’t figure out a better way to show most of it and the … Continue reading

Last week, Mike and I were able to escape for 5 days for Top Chef: The Cruise. We booked this in the fall as our annual anniversary trip and we enjoyed every minute. We ate ourselves silly and enjoyed the … Continue reading
Our spring break wasn’t super eventful – it was staycation of sorts. Clara and Anna were sick for the first part of it, so we were home and hanging out for several days. Towards the end of the week they … Continue reading
This month we: – I continued to work out with Laura (and sometimes Bonnie) at the Y at 5 am. One would think that would translate to weight-loss, but not so much. Probably due to the amount of food I … Continue reading
Well, our Easter didn’t turn out exactly how I’d envisioned it. The plan included white dresses, church, Baptisms, and lunch at Starved Rock. The reality was sick kids, 80′s inspired outfits the Easter Bunny brought for 20 minutes, and spaghetti … Continue reading
Between lack of time and lack of inspiration, I haven’t been posting much lately. I’m turning to old school link-ups to try to regain my blogging mojo. 1. If calories didn’t count, I would eat… dessert for every meal. And … Continue reading
