Saturday Snapshot - My homerun hitter :)


School is out officially...even though my youngest has been out unofficially since I've been out.  Does that make sense?
We've enjoyed some time together just she and I while everyone else goes on about their merry ways.  Our two oldest have part-time jobs, thank the heavens above.
She and I sleep in, drink coffee leisurely (that would be me actually), watch a little tv (her), blog a little (or a lot), eat breakfast at lunchtime, read books, swim, read books, and back to bed again :)
Sound boring?
Not to me.  Sounds like and is HEAVEN!

Thanks to our crazy MS Springtime weather though, softball season is still ongoing with make-up games and a tournament today.  

I've always taken loads of pics of my kids participating in whatever activities they choose but the thing about softball is the pesky fence.

After she hit a homerun the other night though, I decided we needed a reminder of that special game, pesky fence or no pesky fence...

so without further adieu...

here's my homerun hitter through the fence (designed to keep obnoxious parents on their benches :P)



And yes, it's Instagrammed up a bit...why do you ask? ;)

  5. Cute photo!  But hey, you're in MS?  I'm from MS, but living   in the north now.  Makes me wonder if we know people in common...

  8. the only sport I've had trouble with so far is nighttime soccer...the fast action combined with low light and me sitting so far away doesn't work very well.  The older I get the bolder and closer to the field I get ;)

  10. Oh wow!! I grew up in N MS around the MS State campus, moved to TN for 6 years and have been back for 15 years in S MS...Where's your hometown?

  11. I think you may be right about the fence, it may actually be to keep parents away! It's a nice shot even with the fence!

    Very cute.... sadly, some parents do take things too far in way that isn't very role-modelish for their children.

  17. Haha! Your description of life when school gets out is what retirement here in the grey cottage is ALL about ... and we never tire of the relaxation.

    Your picture of your little slugger reminded me of that CCR song "Put me in Coach! I'm ready to play today! " Glad to know you're steering clear of those obnoxious parents ... they always ruin the fun! Baseball's all about sportsmanship and letting everyone get a crack at the homeplate!

    Hooray for the homerun-hitter!  Looking all serious and down-to-business there at the plate.  Great photo--fence and all.

    Here's my Snapshot.

  19. Great photo, and I'm envious of your heavenly arrangement.  can I move in, I promise to pull my weight, well maybe not my "weight" I'm rather heavy.

  20. Way to go on the homerun!   We have nine more days of school around here.  We live across the street from a school and it will get nice and quiet.

  21. I would not mind school being out if that could be my summer routine too!! And I'm impressed with your home run hitter! YAY!

    ReplyDelete
  22. What a perfect instagrammed picture :)  It's perfect for the fence.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Great shot. I think the fence added something to the photo. I took one of my youngest at a track meet the other day and I was on the other side of the fence. I told him it looked like an album cover. Here's Mine

  24. I was thankful for that fence several times during our season! Isn't that crazy!!

  25. Before the first game she was nervous that she wouldn't know how to run the bases...needless to say, she got over that! :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. me too, Lisa! All 3 of our girls have been in involved in sports of some kind :)

  27. Now I have that song in my head, Susan :)
    When the parents acted like idiots even the kids were looking at them like they were crazy...the kids didn't even realize something was worth fussing over.  It's a shame really.

  28. I kinda liked the fence myself after it was all said and done.

    ReplyDelete
  29. LOL! I'm also trying to lose some of my weight that I'm pulling right now...I lost my metabolism somewhere between 42-43 :/

  30. I bet you can really tell a difference, Nise' :)

  31. Unfortunately it won't be my schedule all summer, Jenners.  I have to work summer registration this coming Tuesday and then start an online class on Wednesday.  I also have to get a school-wide assessment report finished this summer so I'm just taking advantage of free time while I can :/

  32. the fence has definitely grown on me...don't you just love Instagram??

  33. I think it does too, Paulita!

  34. I'm very familiar with Petal...we live in Ellisville and I finished my Masters and PhD at USM.  What a small world!  I'm also familiar with MSMS...but I've only known a few kids who've gone to school there. Very neat!
