The boys had a baseball tournament that day which ran into prom time.
Mason had 20 minutes at home to shower & switch from his baseball uniform to his tux.
A hectic day, but everyone looked lovely.
More pictures soon!
Baseball season wants to be in full swing.
With moody spring weather, our schedule changes by the day.
Yesterday the boys played a full game for 2 1/2 hours in wind, rain, & chilly 30's. It was cold watching them, but they pulled off a good win!
I turned my ankle pretty awfully while walking to the field for yesterday's game. The sensation about knocked my socks off initially, but I managed to stay on my feet for the whole game.
Wondering today if I should tough it out or go to the doctor and make sure there isn't more damage than I'm aware of. Foolish, foolish.
(Update: I took myself to the doctor & have a pretty bad sprain with partially torn ligaments & an air cast.)
Mitch & Johnathan had been planning to go to a MN Twins game this past weekend with the 5th grade class. They boarded a school bus early Sunday morning, drove to the twin cities (quite a trip) only to have the game canceled. The new Target Field is highly acclaimed BUT there were no rain outs at the Metrodome!
They noted that the grass is quite a bit greener 170 miles to our south.
We have not a bloom or a leaf yet. I'll be sure to share when we do.
This little brother has sure been a good sport along the sidelines throughout his years. (Johnathan & Lilly, too.)
Saturday morning I spotted a pair of loons returned to our area. The first I'd seen this spring.
Ice is still not off local lakes, but we're gaining open water.
Yesterday I saw a pair had joined the swans at the end of our road, too.
I've never heard a kookaburra laugh. I wonder how many have never heard the distinct call of a loon that we're so used to.
We had a trio of mallards land in our yard, waddling around in the pouring rain Sunday.
The snowshoe hare is still around.. Lilly seems to be taming it.
I just finished The Light Between Oceans, recommended by Marcia. I fell in love with the far away shores it took me too. I've made note of all book recommendations & hope to add them to my already abundant stacks to read. :)
The Light Between Oceans was my 15th book of 2014. Will I make 50 books? We'll see.
Reading is a luxury. Whatever will be will be.
Since I won't be skipping off to too many places until my ankle gains stability, I should find myself with a little more time for luxuries of the sitting still kind.
As I post this, it's after midnight. Officially May 1st.
Growing up, we always carried out May Day traditions. Do you?
Happy May Day!
