I don't know about yours, but mine has so much personality. Thought I'd share a picture of Payton at the baseball game....

She wasn't the center of attention at the moment, so she rolled onto her back and just stared at me. Tonight at Gman's game, she had about five little kids petting her and she just loved it. Payton is part pitbull and can scare some people off. It's frustrating that I have to reassure people that I wouldn't have her at a baseball game around lots of people if she was aggressive...I understand the stereotype, but I don't think I fit that image of a person who would train her animal to attack someone....

I love baseball...don't get me wrong! I just don't love baseball six days a week! I have had a post forming in my head every single day, but do not have time to sit down and write it out. We have accepted an offer on the house, but I'm not counting my chickens before they hatch because NOTHING EVER GOES SMOOTHLY FOR US! My stepbrother got married last weekend and it was beautiful. I have not gotten ANY work done at one of my schools and it is starting to make me crazy, but here I am posting on my blog. Better get to it, but thought I'd share some pics from baseball...B's game tonight, Gman's tomorrow....

Absence makes the heart grow fonder...

I have not had time to sit down and blog for two weeks!!!! Believe me, I've been keeping up on yours as I can type one in and have time to read a post between classes, but not time to sit and write my own. I have two words for you, HOUSE and BASEBALL.

This is very scary for me, but two weeks ago my man and I decided to put our house up for sale. This is MY first house. The house where we really became a family. We have been doing little things here and there to get it ready. My man worked his tail off opening and cleaning the pool, putting up new ceiling tiles, installing a ceiling fan, and finishing the trim in the kitchen. All I really had to do was clean. It's times like this that I wonder why I don't take time to clean like this more often! The sign went in the yard's such a crazy time. Do we look at houses that we like when we don't know what will happen with our house? Our realtor is VERY positive. She has had lots of inquiries about our house already.
We have been living baseball for about a month, but since May 1 I think we might as well sleep at the ballpark, too. Tonight was actually our first night in two weeks without any practices or games! B has had 2 games and won them both. He is a different kid this year. Last year he had a poor attitude and refused to play unless his father was in the stands. This year, he hustles and even made a double play in the first inning of the first game. I just want him to get a hit now to build his confidence even more. Gman had his first game last night. I'm not crazy about his coach this year. He's not really good with the kids. When they do something wrong, he stands there and says, "what did I tell ya?" instead of going over and showing them how to do it. They won 18-2 and he told them they needed to play harder next time! I don't care if my child wins, just want him to learn something and show growth. I think I'm going to have to bite my tongue alot this season!
This is a long post, but I'll wrap up with some pictures for Discovery Depot, the children's museum in town. Mary and I snuck out with Cole Pickles, Reester, and Gman while the men did some work last weekend. We were even able to head to some shops and check out the farmer's market.
