Doesn't he just look like a baseball player...the kid playing first base played with Andrew in "A" ball in 3rd grade...now they are both teenagers...boy that slapped me back into reality.
Then we got to do my favorite thing ever...take my kid to a "bee". Had to go watch my son compete in our school's Geography Bee...thankfully he won...but geez I thought I was gonna die...I hated each question and sweat like I was the one up there...thankfully I wasn't. So my daughter decided last week that she wanted to do the local spelling bee. I tried everything I could think of to talk her out of it...mostly so I wouldn't have to deal with it all...she was so excited and she had such a great attitude about it. I just knew, however, that she would probably be disappointed and I would have to feel her heartache as if it were my own, but I signed the sheet and hoped for the best. Well today was the day.
She was a trooper though...with her certificate...
Andrew had a big hug for her.
As we are walking to the parking lot we asked her what word she missed. The word was "both". She started out with B-O...but then couldn't decided if there was a U or just T-H. She went with the U...and missed the word. But we promised her ice cream so off to baskin robins.
