Fun being the attentive mom

From time to time I wonder if trouble just follows me. Jman has had a few days (try several) where he REALLY didn't want to go to the Y. So I asked why............ only to find out that one of the counselors has been telling him he was writing him up........and I have not seen a piece of paper. So I addressed it with the person I deal with daily when I take Jman in.......... then this weekend he tells me a story about the same counselor breaking a clipboard by slamming it on the table. UM??? Why am I the only one it seems that hears these things.......... oh the fun. SO. I addressed it up a higher level. We will see what comes next.

But my question is always, is it just me? Or is it that because I actually pay attention I see things differenly than other parents? I cannot believe that I care more than other parents.......... we are all parents, we all love our kids.........

A good cause

I have a friend who is going to run with these guys. Check it out. And then realize that it is a fundraiser for those men and women who are injured while defending our freedoms.

Soccer Game

Okay, so today had to be the hottest day EVER. Jman went out there with 2 pair socks on and in the beating sun! The parents sat on the sidelines dripping sweat and trying not to pass out. Thankfully we survived. It was a tough game. Our kids only had ONE practice before this game and most of the kids have never played before. Jman was complimented by Coach Matt at the end of the game for being aggressive!!!! He said we need more aggressive players who are willing to get out there and PLAY! (for once his mama's personality has paid off!) He did well. And was dripping sweat too by the end of the game. No score cuz they don't keep score..........

but for those of you still reading, we didn't have any goals and the other team did.

So tomorrow is the BIG DAY. Jman's first soccer game. :) Check back tomorrow for the report. Bearing in mind they do not keep score.......... so they are ALL winners. (yeah right!!)

Sweet dreams.

Labor Day

For Labor Day, Jman and I went to VA Beach so I could run with 16000 of my closets friends (including my best friends husband since my best friend is pregnant). It was great. Well by my standards. L (my best friend) hung out with Jman and the cheering signs to ensure that we didn't pass out on the race way. El Bob finished in 1:45 and me, well, I finished in a lot longer. It was humid and in the 70's, but not too bad. I relaxed (after a while) and just enjoyed the race.

After the race and a little food, we hit the beach to fight the waves and I guess to find out exactly how much sand can make it into Jman's swim trunks (thru the mesh on the lining) before his trunks fall off.

Pictures coming later.........(when I get some)

All in all we are doing well.

Jman started back to school today and it was a rough start. Some days just don't go well. Tomorrow will be better.
