After fielding a ball barehanded he noticed a lot of blood and discovered a nasty gash on his finger - yuck. He bandaged it and continued to play having two more at-bats and getting good line drives with both. After the game we decided he should head to the ER to get a few stitches.
After many hours there he finally returned home at about 1:00 am with a heavily bandaged hand and a referral to a hand surgeon. It seems he also broke three bones in two of his fingers!! He'll have to learn to be a leftie for a while. He sees the surgeon later this week.

I found a picture frame for just 25 cents at a garage sale the very next day - painted and sanded it and framed this pretty piece of art.

Time to go:
This year California berries win hands down!! And after all the drama I'm thinking as nice as it sounds to pick our own berries and preserve them myself - we're buying our berries at Costco!!!!!

I love gardening and this is truly love - for my hubby who is not enamored with yard work like I am to spend the day shoveling, hauling and generally doing whatever I asked.
When she wasn't eating dirt that is:
I'm so happy with how my gardens have turned out and as they grow and fill in and bloom I will remember how my husband spent the day loving me!!!

The music man put on the wrong music for this next dance and all the girls danced like champs in spite of the confusion - I would never have been so poised!! Ruthie also let me know after it was all over that her ghillies are too small and her toes hurt a bunch the entire dance (I checked and indeed her feet grew far more than I realized this year - off to find bigger ghillies!!)
Relaxing with best friends after it's all over. They all did so well and needless to say I'm so proud of them all!!!

Okay, to counteract the picture of the slug:
Baby in a basket:
Esther loved being carried around this way - and Ruthie loved doing it!
Ruthie has a dance recital tonight. The tradition for Irish dance is for the girls to have curly hair. This presents a big challenge for my daughter (no hair straightening products will ever be needed by her :0)!!!) We have to begin the hair curling process at least 24 hours ahead of time.
Dance pictures will come soon!!

Aren't they just so sweet?!!! Almost as cute as my own kids - almost but not quite!!
Tomorrow I will share a picture of the acrobatic slug that lives in my backyard!!

Today in spite of amazingly sore muscles (better get back to the exercise DVDs!!) I was energized by my day of "rest" and I got a lot done:
Fed kids (they must be growing - they keep wanting to eat :0):
Weeded the veggie garden (I'm not going to let those weeds get the upper-hand this year - I hope):
And for Mom - yes I wore sunblock and a hat (even though the hat was hard to keep on while hanging clothes):
And while I did do all those things the real reason for this post was an excuse to play with my new camera (do I really need an excuse?)
