One Crafty Daughter...

Ok so I have to share this story of my daughter who is constantly drawing, painting, and just creating in general.
The other day the boys were playing Nerf basketball in the house and it split in half in the middle of play. The boys worked and worked to get it back together using tape etc...
Then Madison steps in and takes the ball, walks into my craft room and asks for the thread and needles and proceeds to stitch that darn Nerf ball back together... and it worked! Gotta love that.. she totally cracks me up!

We are currently on a hiatus with baseball everynight... yeah!! We have taken advantage of it this week with a trip to the pool, off to see Ice Age (so cute), and of course Wed. Family Night at Jens... tomorrow I am hoping to get the kids out to do something... Six Flags maybe? If I can get myself talked into taking all 5 alone... yikes!
We start back next week and then the following week is district tournament and then if we get that far, State. Should be exciting!
We are gearing up for the busiest part of the summer...
next week basketball camp for both girls
the week following is basketball camp for all 3 boys, and district tournament.
then the last week is the State tourney and football camp for the boys and Madison has cheer camp.
whew... all of this with baseball practice and 8:30am workouts in there... geez!
