Happy Dance and Weekend Plans

I am so excited that Friday afternoon is upon us, but I am even more excited than usual. We are in the midst of baseball season at our house. Three of our boys play baseball, and it can be a bit overwhelming trying to schedule everything around games. Our third son plays on a traveling ball team, and Michael helps coach this team. This has been a great experience for him as well as our family, but it is very time consuming. We were suppose to go to Knoxville and play a tournament all weekend, but PRAISE THE LORD the tournament was cancelled. Now I know that a good baseball mother wouldn't be so excited about this cancellation, but this ball mother jumped up and down!!!

I was at the breakfast table this moring with my cup of coffee in one hand and a pen in the other writing as fast as I could. I wanted to make sure Michael and I were on the same page for our new weekend plans. We took a few minutes before he left for work to outline our plans. Our farm list grew by leaps and bounds, and if we get half of our list accomplished then I will be more than thrilled.

Our raised beds are coming along wonderfully. I am already thrilled with our results! I will have Michael post pictures a little later in the week. We are ordering lumber for 6 more beds, and that will give us a total of 10 beds for this year. I was hoping for 20 beds, but I will be thankful for the 10! As of today, we have 4 constructed and ready for planting. I tried my best to get Michael to let me use one of our beds for nothing but flowers. Growing flowers has been a passion of mine for a few years now. I love having fresh flowers all over our house! He told me no way was I to take a whole bed that we should be raising food in and grow flowers. Well, I have now decided that I am going to ask that my family build me my very own raised bed for Mother's Day, and you better believe that it will be full of beautiful flowers!!!! I'll let you know later how this one turns out!

grace and peace,

We sure do understand the "Happy Dance". We've had a few of those as well. It's always a struggle to keep priorities straight and not overfill our schedules. I hope and trust you had a productive weekend.
