{weekend recap}

This was our last volleyball tournament and I can't tell you how happy that makes me feel. We had our last tournament in Jonesboro Arkansas at the Arkansas State University campus. We lost, but that is a good thing for me anyway, if we would have one, that would have meant a trip to Miami Florida--- that I didn't really want.
We have been non-stop since December with practice 2 nights a week and every Saturday along with tournaments and I needed a much deserved break-.

Katie tryed out for High School Junior Varsity/ and or Varsity volleyball last week and she MADE it! She doesn't know yet if she will be on Varsity or the JV until the end of the summer- Which they will praceice and weight train all summer- (yuck)
She was very excited.

After our tournament Saturday, Katie and I got home in time to attend the Annual Memphis LSU Alumni crawfish boil that John and Jacob were already attending Yum- they were sooooo good!

on these books........

Thanks to my daughter, Katie. She saw the movie and read all 4 books in a 2 weeks period. So therefore, she made me watch the movie and I had to know what happens after the movie. So with what litte time I have between baseball games and still volleyballing it I READ!!!! thanks KATE!!!! :)

is this a real word?......
I have been so slack this last week on blogging. My Mom and Dad were here last week from Georgia and I was busy enjoying them and her meals for me when I got home from work everyday- and I might mention my familys clothes washed and ironed everyday for me and also might mention a clean house everyday when I got home. Can you say HEAVEN! :)
We had a good Easter- The weather has been so rainy and cool. Where the heck is SPRING!

Here are a few scrapbook pages I did not too long ago. These are for my 2005 book! and yes it is now 2009 ..... just a little behind :)
