I am thinking it's time to check back into my blog!
Your emails wondering where I've been have really touched me.
There's even been some funny ones...like,
are you and Eric okay? Why do you still have your March header up?
Several of you really thought something was up when I didn't participate in 10 on 10.
I didn't plan to take a break...it just happened.
We've been so busy...and I haven't really felt like blogging.
Tennis takes up a big part of our everyday.
Sometimes I get so bored with tennis. Mentally.
We've also been busy doing yardwork and getting our flower beds ready for mulch.
I've been doing a little spring cleaning.
Brady and I did a 1/2 way trip to visit my mom and sisters for my mom's birthday.
And, I've been planning our summer...trying to fit in a vacation and some fun things...
in between Brady's tennis camps and schedule.
Anway, I did take 10 pictures on the 10th....I thought that would get me back into the blogging
spirit. But then, I was too tired that evening to upload them.
Here they are....
We had a nice quiet Easter at home....just the three of us.
I made ham for dinner. It was so nice not to have any plans for once. We spent a good bit of our day outside doing yardwork. And of course, Brady begged us to go to the courts later in the day.
Speaking of yardwork, Brady has been such a big help with getting our flower beds cleared out.
It has taken me half the time this spring to get things in order because of the extra hands helping me.
Brady loves a good project, that's for sure.
I can't forget Eric..he does a pretty good job of keeping up with our big yard. Mowing and trimming are not at the top of his list of things he enjoys doing. On Easter, he removed a couple of bushes we had at the side of our house. We don't get a lot of sunlight on that side...and the weeds have always been hard to keep up with over there. We decided to get rid of the mess and plant grass. I was worried it would look really bare....and until the grass comes in, I won't know for sure. But, I think it looks much better than it did before.
Every spring we have this green mossy gross stuff on the side of our house.
And here's how it looks now....
I'm thinking a flower box under that window
might look nice. My husband doesn't seem to agree with me.
(Something about drilling holes into the siding??? Whatever!)
Brady was off school on Monday....so we went and played mini golf and went out to lunch. I got beat by 8 strokes! It's much more fun to play now that we're on even an playing field. I think it's funny that Brady holds his golf club like he is hitting a backhand in tennis. We've tried to show him the right way...but he insists on doing it his way.
So, that's what we've been up to. Not a whole lot going on other than tennis matches, tennis clinics, tennis practice and tennis lessons. In a couple of weeks, Brady will start playing on a middle school travel tennis team. He is also in a tennis tournament the next two out of three weekends. And, he's excited to train to be a ball boy in a pro tournament that is coming to our area this summer. Lots of exciting things going on for him. However, it doesn't make for much exciting blog material! I will try and do better with this little blog of mine! Thanks so much for checking in on me. Even if I don't always comment on your blog...please know that I read your blog first thing in the morning...before I get Brady up for school. Some people start their day with coffee...I start my day with my favorite blogs!
