Yesterday was amazing. I got to go watch Zach "try out" for the NTIS games. He had done evaluations on Wednesday and is now playing games in hopes to be selected as one of 18 players to go to Cary NC. I am a huge baseball fan because of my boys. Zach plays baseball six days a week or at least practices. It's just his thing.
Right now, Zach and other amazing (they are invited to try out) players across the country will compete in identification opportunities that will culminate in the selection of regional NTIS teams. These teams will be comprised of the best players from within the region to form the team that goes to NC. So Zach and the other players are playing games today and being evaluated. They announce the players tomorrow.
No matter what it has been a great experience and I loved watching him. If selected they announce the players tomorrow, all teams will participate in the USA Baseball NTIS, Aug. 22-25 (16U & 17U)at the USA Baseball National Training Complex and adjoining Thomas Brooks Park in Cary, N.C. Anyway, I am headed to teach in IL but thinking of him like crazy. I love that my husband or I never miss a game. I have the BEST husband. (sorry if your not into baseball- it's just such a big part of our family story) It makes it easier for me since we can't both be at every single game.
I am sooo excited. I am headed to Hannah's Home Accents. I'm here in the Denver airport waiting for my second flight to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I KNOW I am suppossed to be going there this weekend and I just know that it's going to be special.
The workshops sold out and Dana called with a special request to make room for ONE MORE. I love knowing that although I had no more kits or time to kit another one, that she needed to come. I am going to bring all kinds of goodies to make her weekend fabulous. I brought goodies for EVERYONE too. Wow... am I blessed to love what I do.
Scrapbooking can and is VERY PERSONAL. We talk about personal memories and trials and often I am in tears. I laugh and cry along with each person I meet. There are heartfelt- life long connections that I feel and grow from. So just know if your coming tonight or tomorrow... I am honored and can't wait to meet you. Dana, thank you for asking me and waiting for me to come.
Okay... now for the SNEAK PEEK for Inspiration Unlimited 2013 PAULA CHENEY class. Are you prepared to be amazed????
This class features the Idea-ology Configurations book filled with bright Distress Paint Colors, Idea-ology trinkets, and inspiring words. Each book will be just a little different as you make it your own as you choose the words that mean the most to you. In class you will also experiment with Distress Markers, Stains, and Alcohol Ink. And one little bit of advice from Paula herself..."Loose the manicure, put on your apron and get ready to get a little messy!"..
I am so thankful and honored that she is teaching at the event. She is so talented and I know those coming are going to be learning so much from her.
Okay.. thank you Denver International Airport for FREE WI- FI. It's the small things that make me happy!
Time to board the second flight... Have a great weekend!!!!!
