A glimpse

I'd be embarrassed to post last week's schedule for Matt and I. We made it work, but we didn't see each other. Lots of tag teaming with him working nights and our ridiculous after school schedule with kids' stuff. We literally ran in different directions at different times and even did kid swaps in parking lots. Thankful we make it work, but it's a zoo! 

I've very much slacked in the pic dept in Sept. Both boys in school sports really kept us hopping as well as swim schedules back in session, religion classes, dance, and soccer. We are lucky to get dinner, it's never together! 

I did start taking pics Wed evening. I took Mason to a baseball send off to state party. Matt had to work so he opted to do the swim team/soccer runs. 
A fun time with a fun team. Still honored that Mason was one of the few picked from 7th to play 8th grade baseball and enjoy this moment. 
I did take Thursday off. We crammed 4 kids' parent teacher conferences in and also flu shots for the crew. 
So great to hear all doing well. 
I only took a few pics as we were rushed- 

A poem Mason wrote about his Dad. 
And of his life-
Pleased  to report all doing well. We are fighting speech/hearing stuff with Molly, but I'm confident it will be resolved next month. 

Onto Fri. I left work and headed to Peoria solo (Matt had to work). It was a tough game, but at least Mason made it around the bases with a couple steals. 
Mitch had his last cross country meet in Bloomington. His awesome results are further in the post. He was awesome!!!

And today, onto soccer in Champaign. A big tournament. 
They played across the street from Assembly Hall, awesome! 
A break at the Guitar Center. He would have stayed all afternoon. 

Mitchell's results!!!! 37th out of 272 runners and his best time of the season, 13:18 for 2 miles. He's knocked nearly 2 minutes off his time in 6 weeks. What a great experience for him and he's ready for track this spring! 
Mom offered to keep my sweets this weekend. I miss them sooo much. They have to be so much happier there than driving all over for these events. These pics prove it! 

So much fun for them! Love their genuine happiness! 

Mason's plaque for state baseball. 
Cross country is over, baseball is over...bring on swim! It's our normal happy place and pace! A few less running a to practices and events will make a huge difference. So proud of my boys! 

I think 83 baseball games played since March...
