Last night C had what was supposed to be the last game of the fall baseball season, but we still have four rainout games left to make up. I have mentioned on here before that this coach lives and breathes baseball. He is super serious and lacks a little in the friendliness department. Just for example, during one of the hot weeks of practice, C wore shorts to practice. When he walked on the field, the coach yelled "C, you ever heard of pants?" This was in front of everybody. Luckily, the sarcasm was lost on C and it went in one ear and out the other. Anyway, all that to say that there is no such thing as a "game ball" on this coach's team. Other teams in our league do it, but not ours. However, one of the assistant coaches took C aside after the game last night and handed him this ball and whispered to him that it was the game ball. C was so excited!!! See it doesn't take much to get these little guys excited an I'm glad that there are coaches out there who realize that.
On to the "family pumpkin project". Somehow, the family project turned into a mommy project. We were given the assignment to decorate this pumpkin any way that we wanted to as long as we had fun and did it as a family. I threw out several ideas to C and he turned them down. Today he came up with the idea of gluing goldfish and Cocoa Puffs. I thought that was a great idea. So I got out the glue gun and C helped me lay a few fish out. Then as I added a drop of glue, he placed the fish on. Twice. Then he was done. He disappeared. When I went to his room he said he was tired and needed a nap. So Mommy finished the "family project". I think it turned out pretty cute myself.
