I can’t believe a week has gone by and I haven’t blogged once. Summer schedules are insane!
Last week I did more than just play with my iphone, though I admit it’s such a fun toy, I’m not sure if it’s a good or bad thing to be so in touch!
Last Tuesday I sent Adrienne off to a College Exposure Camp, where @ 15 college coaches spent 2 days working with @ 120 softball players. They did batting drills and she did workouts for her position, she is a catcher. They did game simulation putting them on teams and seeing how they performed. I’m proud to say she caught the eye of several coaches and thankfully coaches she was interested in impressing. She did her homework and checked out the schools, their academics and really selected schools she is interested in attending and playing softball. She then had 3 days of a exposure tournament with her team. Eight girls on her team went to the camp, they had a great week together and with 3 coaches. This is the first in a long process of getting her recognized and with any luck getting her offers for scholarship money for college. This also includes keeping her grades up and doing well on SAT/ACT. Colleges want the whole package and right now Adrienne is on the right path………..yay my baby girl.
I spent last week watching Caitie leave most of the time…….and then on Friday afternoon, as we headed out for a weekend of softball, she headed to south FL with her boyfriend’s family for a week long vacation. They have several time-share exchanges and so she is spending the week in a lovely resort, and spending a couple of days and nights going to Key West too. She’s having a blast so far.
I finished a book last week…………book review coming up tomorrow, make sure you come back to read. I started a new book, and oddly enough books just keep finding their way to me. I bought one off the bargain racks at B&N this weekend……I mean honestly under $5 and a memoir I wanted to read……..can’t go wrong. Here is the funniest thing, Kevin was unpacking one of the bags from the weekend and found a book. It was on my nightstand when I went in last night and I recognized it as something I wanted to read, but where did it come from……..I’m still perplexed as to when I bought or was given this book………….the last time I used that luggage piece was in April……spring break, before that it was January, I think………lol, and I still can’t remember. Yikes……..I’m putting a moratorium on buying and even wanting more books………I have half a dozen or more that I own and need to read!!
This week is craziness………Adrienne playing in a week long tournament, but it’s semi-local, depending on what fields they are assigned, games start tomorrow. Lots of other things going on too…………………off to get busy!
