Good morning everyone! It's Friday! Tonight will be the last practice before starting the All Stars tournament on Monday. I just hope the boys are ready. Yesterday we decided to get Nick a new bat. I am so embarrassed to tell anyone how much we spent on this bat. You might think he plays in the MLB!! It was on sale but still... Anyway, he is so excited to use his bat for practice last night, which happens to be a scrimmage against the 11 year old All Star team. He gets out his new bat and all the boys oooh and aaah over it. And the coaches, too!! So most of the boys use this bat and hit very well with it!! And Nick? Ha!!! He struck out EVERY time!!!! Go figure! I was so mad! But then afterwards he comes out and he is pretty humble about the whole thing and my heart just melted. I think he was just trying so hard to hit the ball that he forgot what he was supposed to do. So he is looking forward to batting practice tonight. I know he will hit the ball. Plus I am not going to be there and that always seems to help him. On the plus side, his pitching was a thousand times better than at the tournament last weekend! He has been working on that and it is so much better!
Today's card is one that I made for the Featured Stamper's challenge at Stampin' Connection. The featured stamper was Kimberly Van Diepen. If you have never seen her work you must go and check it out. It's beautiful!! She is able to create that vintage style with ease and I just love that! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
