back by popular demand

Hey Kids! Back by popular's Ragsland! I've been gone almost 2 years. I thought I could handle being one of the cool kids, but it just wasn't happening. I was talking to my sister-in-law today (who'd have ever thought I'd have one of those on the maternal side of my family), and she told me that just for old times sake, she'd check to see if I'd updated. Not surprisingly, I hadn't. Let's see how long it takes her, or anyone else, to notice!

I still don't have a digital camera at my disposal...thought one would come my way for Mother's Day, but hey, I got an uninterrupted nap, so there are still no pix of my beautiful kidlets.

Speaking of the kidlets, we've been very busy. Jake will be starting first grade and Zac will be starting 7th grade; both in the number one school district in Louisiana. I'm not sure if it's all that great to be number one in the bottom tenth of the nation, but we'll go with it. I kid. The Zachary school district is fantastic, and we're happy to be a part of it.

This summer, so far, has been full of baseball. Jake finished his season of coach pitch ball with his team in 3rd place (of about 5000 teams) and Zac finished his season of 11-12yo league in 3rd place of 7 teams. Zac was selected to play all-stars, so we've been busy with that. We have the district tournament in Denham Springs tomorrow night and back here in Zachary for Friday night. If we need another game to determine the winner, we'll play again Saturday morning. The state tournament is over July 4 weekend in Abbeville, LA. That should be great. George and the boys will be there while I take my mom home. She's been with us almost 2 weeks...

It has been wonderful having my mom with me these last couple of weeks. She's been staying with the kids while George and I go to work. Granted, I only work a few hours a day, but Bopba is there when the kids get up in the morning. George left today for a middle school mission trip, so I have my mom for some company while he's gone. We're going shopping tomorrow for a gift for my brother's baby shower over the fourth of July weekend.

You know, as far as Ragsland is concerned, no news is good news. However, now that I've figured out how to log in (it has been almost 2 years after all) I'll try to keep my faithful fan-base up to date!!! Maybe I'll even get a new digital camera and post some pix while I'm at it!
