Hello, all.

It's Friday morning, and the start of Memorial Day weekend. Woohoo!

I would love to say that we have big plans for the weekend, but that's not the case. We're hanging out at home today and tomorrow, and possibly headed to Mom's house for a picnic on Sunday afternoon.

And if my brother has his way, he may talk us into hauling hay.

We had another t-ball game Wednesday night, and we lost.

The team we were playing was 5-0, and they were good. We had a chance, but their team caught an unexpected break.


One of our players hit the ball and it went airborn. This, in and of itself, is a miraculous feat. Most of these kids are lucky to hit the ball five feet, much less hit a pop-up.

So the ball is in the air and we are so excited, and then . . . boom.

The pitcher catches the ball.

Again, another miracle on the mound because no one on our team can catch a ball that's been thrown to them.

So our team is scrambling to get back on their bases, the kids on both teams are all confused, and the other team manages to get the ball to second and tag our runner out.

Oh, well.

We did a good job from there, but with run rules and only three innings, we just didn't have a chance to come back.

But after three innings, most of the players have lost the ability to concentrate, and they're just running around in circles, playing in the dirt, or climbing the walls of the dugout.

Again, literally.

So the game ended 15-13. Twin A was a little disappointed, and Twin B could have cared less. I think if we end up going to my Mom's house, we might have our own practice to get ready for games next week.

But we'll just have to see how it goes.

I hope everyone has a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend!!!
