Softball and Other News

Softball started today for Matthew. It was a very windy and cold day. He had a lot of fun and so did we. I enjoy watching these little ones learn the game. No score is kept, but the kids do learn a lot about the game and have fun. All the kids get to bat, which is a good thing. The practices and games are held on Saturday mornings so there is no stress about softball during the weekdays.

Matthew headed home.

Ready to hit the ball.

In the dugout.
Other news of the week:
APS is letting go of a lot of teachers and aids. At work we have lost 2 teachers, 4 aids and our Dean of Students. And they are still cutting jobs. Nothing has been said about Special Ed. yet. The budget from the state has not come in, sooo I still don't know if I have a job or not. There is three weeks of school left, so I think I should find out by then. (I hope)
We had the Band banquet last night in which my kids got awards. It was very nice till the end, when the Band director announced that his position was cut. No more Band director. Now we don't know if there is a band for next year. :( And Del Norte hosts the" Duke City Drum Off" next year.
On to the good news. Emily received her Silver Award in Girl Scouts. She however missed the ceremony due the loss in our family.
Brian is home. He has completed his first year of college. He has one week to sleep late and be lazy and then he starts his job at the Labs.
All my kids are under one roof once again. Best mother's day gift ever.
A Happy Mother's Day to all you mother's out there. Hope you have a great day.
Take Care,
