Busy Week - Dance, Teacher of the Year, Baseball...

Last week was as busy as ever! I'm not sure we could have squeezed something else in if we tried! On Monday, Mikayla had dance and then I had to be back at school at 7:00 for a PTA meeting and spring Open House. Then on Tuesday, Mikayla had dance again and I had to pick up their pictures that we had taken at the studio at the end of February! Also on Tuesday before I left school I found out that I had been chosen as our Teacher of the Year! I was very surprised and honored at the same time! To be nominated for this by my fellow teachers after only 6 years in the classroom was such an honor! It was announced to the other teachers at my school on Wednesday morning so I received many congratulatory wishes! After school on Wednesday Drew had baseball practice. Thursday afternoon we didn't have any activities so I cooked dinner and we hung out at the house! On Friday night my daddy took us out to dinner to celebrate a belated happy birthday for mom and to celebrate my recent honor! I feel so blessed to have such a supportive family!

On Friday, Drew had baseball practice. When we arrived we found out that our practice field had been double booked (again!). The coaches decided that our teams could scrimmage. That actually proved to be the best practice we could have in fact! The kids really got to see what a game would be like. For Drew he was able to see that you wouldn't get a hit every time and that this year they count strike outs. He did really well and I don't think it will take him long to realize that it's not the end of the world if you don't get a hit every time. It helped when I shared that Poppi and Uncle Jonathan didn't get hits every time when they played either!
Mikayla reads with Claire during baseball practice. She loves having her chair and books with her!
Drew gets ready to hit the ball! Look at that future Atlanta Brave - particularly Chipper Jones (hey a mom can dream can't she?)!

Drew plays the field - he does a great job of backing the other guys up!

I wanted to get a picture of how dirty Drew got during practice. So... after practice he and Mikayla pose for a picture in the back of our new van. Gotta love that South Carolina red mud - see Drew's face and hands!
