Just Hanging In There

Sorry that it has been so long since I posted. We have just been trying to keep our head above water. We have had so much going on in the past month.

Allison has started fast pitch softball. She played machine pitch last year and loved it. Her team is the Padres and she has the same coach Ms. Brandy. Madison is growing like a weed. She is mostly legs! I guess she takes after Keith. She was going to play T-ball until she found out she had to play with mostly boys. She decided that she would just cheer for Allison and play with Taylor during Allison and Catey's game. Allison's games will be on Mondays and Wednesdays with practice on Tuesdays. We even have some Saturday games. Keith has decided not to coach this year and just be a sideline dad.

Keith has been busy as well. Friday he finished his D.A.R.E. Graduation with the city schools. I know that his is glad. He still has Lee Scott to finish. He has also had a ton of training classes to do. One was from 1 pm to 9 pm.

Baylee is also busy all the time. She is growing sooooo fast. She went to check another puppy check up and weighed 10 lbs. That means she almost doubled her weight in 4 weeks. She like Madison is all legs. We have decided not to get her ears done. We just don't see the need when it is just for looks. She has fit in our family just fine. The only time we struggle with is the mornings when we are rushed anyway. Her house training is going great! No accidents in at least a week. Now that the weather is warmer we have had her outside a lot.

I have been just trying to keep up with everyone else. Allison has had a lot of homework and test this past week since they got out for Spring Break. She had tests 4 of the 5 days this week. Ask either of us about Alabama and the Civil War and we can tell you. Madison has been reading like a champ. Work has slowed down a little bit for me, thank goodness.

The girls will be going camping with Grammie and PawPaw (my parents) over Spring Break. They will be taking the camper to White Oak just down from Eufaula. They have planned some bike rides, hiking, fishing, and exploring. They are hoping for other children to play with. We are so thankful that we have parents that are involved in our children's lives.

Keith and Allison went to the grocery store and Madison and I are here. She is playing with Baylee. Keith and I are still on our healthy eating! (I don't want to think of it as a diet.) Keith started prior to October and went from 223 lbs to 173 lbs. He does not want to lose any more. Yesterday I bought him some new American Eagle jeans and he needed at 31 waist. I have lost 16 lbs in almost a month. I feel better now than I have in a long time. We are working out as a family and walking as a family. We will be ready for the beach this year!

Well, Keith and Allison just got back. I better get back to laundry. We love you all!
