2012 : week 39

The final day of softball this year.
It was a long day but lots of fun with new friends.

There was softball
and lots of waiting around for more softball.

We played the first game of the day
and the last game of the day.
It was a long day at the park!

We might not have won all the games
but we were really good at tailgating.

And to top the day off,
Carly had her best hit of the season
at her last at bat.
A good day to end the season and
make us want to come back for more!

2012 : week 38

Carly played softball at Jackson Prep this week
and it turned into a mini family reunion.

 Celeste, Denise, Beege, Libba and Woody made it.
JC had karate.  We missed seeing you JC!

I asked Carly did she feel special.
She said "yeah, REALLY special".

Grandaddy made it.
MamMam and Aunt Kacey made it too.
Missed Uncle Rocky.
Carly said he probably wouldn't enjoy a ballgame.
So one day, we will have to get him to one.

2012 : week 37

Last week we joined Heritage United Methodist Church.
We are settling in and getting involved.
Carly is making friends and participating in Youth.
Sunday, she helped with children's church. 
The youth director sent me this photo
of them "cleaning up".

2012 : week 36

At the beginning of the summer, Carly was aggravated that I told her it was bed time.
I can't remember what time it was.  It doesn't matter.
It was just the thought that it was summer, and I had the audacity to send her to bed.
She responded that this was going to be the worst summer ever.
Going to bed might have spurred the comment,
 but it probably had more to do with the move.
The next day, after a good night sleep, I asked her to come up with a bucket list
of things that she wanted to do this summer that would make it fun.
Besides going back to Hernando, she couldn't come up with a list.
So, I decided that when we did something during the summer
that she seemed to enjoy or asked to do again,
I wrote it on a card and hung on her door.
There are bigger things like going to the beach,
4th of July family weekend in Clarksdale, and
a trip to Hernando,
but there are also tons of small things
like swimming, eating watermelon, playing tennis.
I wish I had been better at documenting the small stuff,
but overall a great look at summer!
