Baseball Anyone?

We have been spending a lot of time at the ball field lately. I mean A LOT! Luke is playing all~stars and the Auburn Wildcats are on fire! He has played the past two seasons and this year we have made it farther in the tournament than they have in six years! We are so proud of our boy. He loves to play ball. All of our boys LOVE sports and we LOVE watching and supporting our boys play. We are so blessed to have healthy, active, and sometimes crazy boys! Ben and I always played sports and we feel it is important for our kids to stay active and learn about sportsmanship and how to be a team. I hope our boys always play sports cause we sure enjoy watching them.
We also celebrated Luke's 7th birthday last week after his game. We went to his favorite restaurant~Buffalo's! We had them sing to him and bring him a birthday treat! I can't believe my baby is 7..Wow time flies!

Not Me! Monday

Bowen swimming

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
I do not love the fact that my boys LOVE to play outside rather than sitting inside watching t.v., Nope, Not Me!

I have not been letting my kids eat ramen noodles sometimes twice a day just to make my life easier....I am not a lazy Mama..Nope, Not Me!

I never let Bowen swim naked in the pool....that would be tacky and I am never tacky! Hey the boys likes being in his birthday suit! Can you blame him!?! Nope, Not Me!

So, head on over to MckMama's blog and join in the fessing up fun! You will be glad you did!

Not Me! Monday

elcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week. I do not love the fact that 3 of mmy 4 boys have the most beautiful blue eyes and blonde hair ever!! I am not a proud Mama...nope, not me!

I did not crack up when Luke came in the other day trying to tell me that the 18mo. pants he was wearing were not his shorts...He is not crazy...nope, not him!

Ben and I not miss eachother while I was away on my cruise....absence does not make the heart grow fonder...nope, not us!

Luke is not the cutest 7 year old ball player I know.....He is not at the top of his game....It is not his 7th birthday today...I was not totally in love with my first born son and nursing my sweet babe exactly 7yrs. ago today...nope, not me!

I do not love summer so much that I wish it was 3 months instead of just 2...nope, not me!

My Little All~Star Luke

Luke's All~Star team the Auburn Wildcats won all three games this weekend! They played one game on Saturday and two games on Sunday. They all hit the ball very well and had great defense! Luke rocked 2nd base and had some awesome hits with only one strike out. They will play again this weekend and hopefully we will do this good for the real tournament! He was telling Ben last night that he was starting to like baseball more! I think for a while it was more of a chore for him. He has always done so well with baseball , so we pushed him to be the best he can be. We are so proud of our little All~Star who will be turning 7 this weekend. I can't believe my baby is getting so big!

I just got back from the Bahamas.....and it was fabulous! We boarded the Monarch of the Seas cruise ship Monday morning and got back Friday. We went to Coco Cay and Nassau. What a beautiful place. I could so live there! It was hard leaving Ben and the kids but I did not miss them as much as I thought I would. Every Mama out there needs a break and mine was a long time coming! I had a great time with my sister and her friends...who are now my friends too! I was the baby of the group and I loved it!~ The island had the most beautiful water I have ever seen... breath taking how God created such beauty for us to enjoy! I can't wait to go on another time it will be couples! Ben would love it! Absence makes the heart grow fonder.....I love my husband and boys even more {if that's possible}! Everyone should go on a cruise atleast once! I plan on going on several more....hopefully!
