I am missing my son ZACH so much. As you know they are playing in Cooperstown. They are done with their six seeding games. They won FIVE out of the SIX. They lost the one game yesterday by one run. So they are going into the tournament today as seeding #17 out of 104 teams. I so wish I could be there. It's hard because they only get to go as 12 year old boys.
Today they will start the tournament and it is single elimination. They will play later today and I will be here in UTAH cheering the team on. This week is drill camp for the MHS Spartonians. Since I am a Captains mom, I am in charge of helping this week. I am doing the lunch today and McKay is doing her motivational today and gift. I LOVE so much to be apart of each of my kid's life. This Saturday they will be in the city parade. So as much as I would LOVE to jump on the airplane and head to Cooperstown... I knew my week was busy here with the other kids. I am taking the kids to the STADIUM OF FIRE on Saturday. I can't wait... Carrie Underwood will be performing.
It was so cute...yesterday we were waiting to hear results of the games and two of my kids came into the room at separate times. They wanted to know if I had heard updates. I told them that we were waiting and each said...they were praying that Zachie "Zach's nickname by his family" would do well. It touched me. I know that our family REALLY tries to support each other. More than anything the kids are having the TIME of their life's. Zach is so busy having fun he is not wanting to call me. ha!

I have been cleaning and purging like crazy. I have been avoiding my unloved storage room for so long. I figure if I never use that I am saving in the last year than it is time to donate the items. I am trying to keep myself busy while the boys are away. Spencer and Taylor's home flooded and so that means they are with us this week too...so we are enjoying having them around.
*Weigh in went well. WOO HOO... no weight gain on vacation. It pays to plan ahead. The first stop was to the grocery store to buy healthy food. I guess for me it's true... if I don't plan than i plan to fail. I had fruit and veggies always available. WEIGHT WATCHERS rocks... I love my weekly meetings.
Have a GREAT WEDNESDAY!!!!!
