It's a shame that I have so much to do inside this week, with getting the house ready for our move, because the weather here has just been beautiful. It's perfect; not too hot and not too cold. I've got so much to do and it doesn't help that I leave in two days for a week.

Preston had baseball practice last night and as we pulled up another kid from his team pulled up at the same time. We (the kids, me, and the other kids dad) walked up to the field. We always practice on the same field but yesterday something was off because there were 5 coaches out there and Preston's team only has two. Also, there was a guy standing by the entrance to the field with a clip board and a list of the players names. I thought they really must have gotten organized since the previous practice. Oddly, Preston's name was not on the list. I figured they must have just left it off so the guy added it on. I went and sat down with the other moms but didn't recognize anyone. I didn't pay attention out on the field because Grace was everywhere and I was busy chasing after her. After about 10 minutes I saw more parents come up and still didn't recognize anyone so I walked over to the dad I knew and asked him if his son's name was on the list of players. Nope. You've probably already figured it out by now but I told him " I think we might be playing with the wrong team because I don't know anyone over here." He kinda looked around and realized that he didn't either. So we called the list guy over and told him what we were thinking, and he in turn called the coach over, and yep, you guessed it - we were practicing with the wrong team!!! Oops. I guess I don't feel so bad, though, because their coaches didn't realize it either. We then drove all around the two areas they have and could not find our team anywhere. Finally we spotted the coaches wife and apparently the league double booked our practice field and we got stuck practicing and a piece of grass between two field. Nice. I'm just glad I wasn't the only one who sent my kid out with the wrong team.

On a sweeter note with Preston - On Tuesdays and Thursdays Troy takes Preston to school. This morning I was half awake and could hear them getting ready. Then the door opened to my room and next thing I know somone's getting in the bed with me. Preston hopped on the bed gave me a big hug and a kiss and then jumped down and left for school. (He thought I was still asleep because I didn't open my eyes) I love having a little boy. :)

Tomorrow is Ms. Langfords (Preston's teacher) Birthday. Bella just loves Ms. Langford and when she heard it was her Birthday right away she said she wanted to buy her flowers. So we are going tonight to buy her flowers. Then at 2:00 tomorrow I am surprising her with balloons and cupcakes for the class to share and her real present (a gift card to get her nails done). If you can't tell we all love Ms. Langford.

I'm posting some pictures from Rowdy's Birthday party last weekend (it was a western theme) and from Grace when she decided to play dress up. I dressed her but she brought me what she wanted to wear and was very insistent on it. (The nice arm piece was her doing). Enjoy!! :)
