We started out the week with our practice that's now twice a week. It was only once a week, we can handle that, but now that games have started it will be twice a week. Wade said to ask them which day they want us there....we'll see how it works out.
We are now a family of 11. Coffee had kittens....the kids are in love. Wade grew up raising animals and I had a calf in our backyard once or twice for a couple of days, this is new for me.......
We live in the ghetto....that's just a fact that I've come to accept. Wade feels safe, the kids have no idea and I'm just happy that we have locks on our doors and windows. Here's the story- we are going to school and see 5 police cars in the parking lot of the school with their lights on and a helicopter flying low passing the school. I'm a little freaked because people are dropping off their kids. I call Wade and he said it was probably fine because people are dropping off so I decide to walk them into school. When we get there the principal is meeting with the teachers in the library and the attendance clerk says that all she can say is that the kids and school are safe. By that time the kids are in the gym and another classmates' mom is dropping her daughter off. We chat for a while and watch more police cars show up. I go to walk the track and then drive back by the school. On the other side of the school there are more police cars and a news truck. I think about going in to school because I just know Hays is probably freaking out.
A couple minutes later a friend texts me that a man had been staped and was lifeflighted to San Antonio. We get a note home from school saying there was a person that was "injured" and twenty questions on what kind of injury he could of had took place. I spoke with Mrs. Weaver that night and she said the kids didn't say a word. She also said that if she was having to drop off her kids, she would of kept on driving.
That night we had our "reading" night, we had a great time.
On Friday we had our walking tour of downtown field trip. The kids had a good time. We left a little early so we could go and watch softball in Belton.
Our first game- Hadlee was pitcher for 2 innings and made 5 consecutive outs. She let two get on base then made a play at home to get out number 6. She had lots of drama when we told her she was playing with boys this year. Hadlee definitely stepped up her playing and was the star of the game. Hays had a blast because he got to play catcher. Harper was the best cheerleader and proud sister.
We will play all of our games on Saturday afternoons. One down...eight to go.
We were hot after the game so we went for a swim in the TLU pool. It was the first time of the season. I need to note that we had our first incident report filled out because Hays had to be saved by the lifeguard.....
