{Games & Laundry}

It kind-of slipped my mind how hard baseball is before school lets out.
This is my little guy hoping and praying his jersey will be dry before game time.
Let the games & laundry begin!

{Rest & Relaxation? That is the Plan}

I am thinking I am extremely emotional today since that squirrel that lost his life in a tragic
way brought tears to my eyes (ya'll see it in the Westwood Drive?). And I am thinking I might be

out of sorts when I was on the phone with Mandi W. and she told me she was folding laundry and
I thought, "Oh no, now I feel like I need to be folding laundry too since we cant see our couch around here". . .
Minus a fun lunch date, and my usual fun with my 3 yr old class on Wednesday nights my week

has kinda' been a dud. Kinda' stressful. Sooo, I pledged to somehow relax today. My family can
only hope at some point I find cleaning the kitchen and laundry similar to a spa visit, because if not, I just cant do it.
I already brewed me some fresh sweet tea. I have my cozy pants on.

I might go to sleep.
I might not.
I might go antiquing.
I might not.
I might clean.
I might not.
I might watch a movie.
I might not.
All I know for sure is I am going to try to rest a little!
P.S. Pictures are at a restaurant we ate at on the way home from FL last year. I don't think I ever posted them? Isn't that fern amazing? I think so.

{Good Monday to You}

Not much computer fun time for me this morning.
I have got to hit the ground running. . .

Bible (Talk to me God)

Make Bed (already done!)

Laundry (clean just gotta' fold)

Bath (Completely necessary!)

Work (Plan, Listen, Plan, Listen.)

Pick up Kids (Yikes!)

Snacks (A must.)

Baseball (Everything ready to throw on!)
Baths (Could be optional?)
Bed (At last. . . )
Oops. . . I forgot to put dinner in there somewhere. . . It could be a crock pot day. . . but I don't have anything to toss in.

Have a good day!
Time for me to get started!
Pictures from Mitch's Restaurant in CA~ Some of the best fish ever. Mmmm.

{Bike Love}

I don't have to say anything. . .
because you know. . .
I adore.

{Mr. McDreamy Sparks}

So, I told my girlfriends a couple of weeks ago. . . that after seeing this movie. . .
and this movie. . .

and this movie. . .
(Our first movie date. . . Mr. Hobbs, "My True North")
I want to meet this guy!
(Did you have an older man pictured? I did.)
Meet Nicholas Sparks.
And like I said I would do. . .
I've done my research.
His life was somewhat of a surprise to me. . .he's a what? A Coach!
To read about "Mr. Romantic Writer of the Universe" go here:
Yes, he has his own website, fb fan page, and tour dates. . .
as he should.
I am so a fan!
Love, Tonia
P.S. Can you believe CBS passed on a television series of one of his books!!
What is wrong with people?
P.S. Maybe coaches are just romantic? Dana, fill us in. . .

{The Final Chapter}

Thursday Eve marked the last chapter for "PTO Singing Programs" for Clayton.
At this point in their little 9 yr old lives. . .

Some still love and show excitement. . .

Others just go through the motions, and do the best they can out of force
(my sons falls in this category). . .

But none the less, when it was all over they got to see their friends, and celebrate. . .
"Never again!!"
. . . and from my observation that appeared to be the best time for them.
3rd Grade PTO Program
Sweet Summer Songs
Take me out the the Ball Game. . .
one of my all-time favorites!
Clayton growing up is hard on this Mom. . .

{Spring Fling}

Last night, Lily & I headed out to Spring Fling together.

We had a really good time.
Holding hands.
Walking from room to room.
Lily was so gracious.
She thanked me over and over for bringing her.
She got a pink & purple "do".

It is beautiful.

The hair color has lasted well into today. . .
Looks really pretty with her new crown from McD's.
Unloading from McD's. . .
A few moments in the house, and she was transformed again!

Beautiful Sis.
Spring Fling West Wood Elementary.
Mom & Sis.
A Great Time.

{Oh dear. . .}

What to do? Who wants to volunteer to tell her?

For the time in history, I didn't like what Grant L. said. . . Lily is to old to play on Buddy's team. Somehow we missed that. I thought she couldn't be 7 before May 1st. The commissioner emailed him this morning. . . is our form at the church confusing? Okay, I know, probably just to me.

Oh dear, now what to do my sweet mommy friends?

2nd year team is full . . .

Mmmmm. . .

{Little Worker Buddy}

We have much, much action next door. . .
Buddy is lovin' it!This morning he requested his breakfast to be served outside.

He had a "birds eye view" of what is going on.

He even has his
tools ready
in case they need
some help.

It's going to be a great day in "Buddy World".
Isn't that just the sweetest?
Ahhh, I think so.
Talk Later.
