I'm still working on the Q&A post. Thanks to you all for such great questions. It's just taking me a little longer than usual to come up with witty answers. I'll keep trying. In the meantime please enjoy the first installment on 'Mundane Monday'.
Part of the problem I've been having in coming up with blogging material lately lies in the fact that life has settled down into a familiar routine. During our adoption process, every day was a new challenge, full of surprises, headaches and hope.
Now that Maddie is home, life is becoming more normal, more sedate, more routine.
And once school gets out, it'll only get worse.
Thankfully Maddie is easy going.
Very rarely do we get any complaints from her...every once in awhile she gets to be squirmy about sitting on our laps (we keep a tight reign on her for bonding sake), but a quick run to the concession stand or around the grandstands usually settles her down.
On the field...
Alek is pitching just about every game. He is ecstatic! He's doing well...he averages about one 'beaning' per game...but he also strikes out quite a few. And when he's not pitching he's playing third base.
Anya is doing so much better than last summer. She's more engaged in the game, which is something I NEVER thought I'd see. She's not playing in the dirt so much this year and is chasing the balls down like a pro. Woohoo!
To say Nick is excited about baseball is like saying I like chocolate. HE LOVES BASEBALL!!!! We missed his first practice last week and you would have thought we had ended his future as an All-Star!!! He wined, whimpered and cried almost all night. GOOD GRIEF! But once he found out there would be more practices, he was golden.
He woke up this morning ready to play...and gave us minute-by-minute updates as to what they were going to practice and what time we needed to leave to get there on time. Thankfully he wasn't disappointed. He LOVED practice and is already counting down to Friday's nights session.
Alright..there you go.
A mundane Monday report.
Hey! You asked for day-to-day...you claimed the everyday would be interesting.
I can't wait to see what kind of comments up come up with for this one!
