End of Soccer Season

This weekend is the District Tournament.  I am glad this season is drawing to an end.  However, I have not made it yet.  This weekend could be a test of my ability to hold it together.  I do miss having at least one free evening a week to do whatever it is I choose.  I love to read. I love to bake.  What are those you say.  Those are my true hobbies.   I am just posing as a sports enthusiast right now.  No....don't get me wrong I love to watch my children play sports.  But the past few weeks have been a little more than hectic.  Parker started baseball before soccer season was over.  We have had three weeks now of baseball games and Soccer started the last weekend in March.  I don't mind having one or the other but both is a drag.  We have also been attending AWANAS every Wednesday night.  Every night has something.  Either game or practice and Saturday's are reserved for the soccer games.  We have had two great soccer seasons, both teams have played really well. Pray that I have enough energy to make it!!   Baseball however will continue through the third week in June.  I will eventually have time to read again right?  HELP

The Magic Kingdom



I know that we went to Disney in February and tomorrow is the last day of April, I am a little behind in getting this out there.  Those of you who do read my blog, all three or four of you, I apologize.  I guess I should say sorry.  I am so slow.



Going to Disney was something that I had anticipated from the time that Madi was a tiny baby.  I always dreamed of the day she would see Cinderella's castle.  I can remember thinking about how many times she would smile in awe.  I had looked forward to this trip for years.  I actually thought that the day may never come.(if it were up to Chris it really might never happened, he is not a big fan of Disney)  The time arrived finally and I am sad to say I was a little disappointed.  We did have a wonderful time.  I just think I had it worked up so in my mind that no matter how much fun we had it would never compare to what I imagined.   The kids loved it and I loved it and Chris had a good time but there were downfalls.   Too many people.  I don't like crowds a lot and there were a lot of people.  I know what did you expect, Cathy?  Hello it is bigger than the whole town of Cordell.   I knew that there would be lots of people but not lots and lots.  You know what I mean don't you?   Anyway......We had a wonderful trip as a whole.  We spent a lot of quality time together as a family.  We saw the fabulous five, Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto.  We even dined with them!!!  Thanks Chris.  Life was good until all the people cut in line!!!  Yep it happened and I didn't deal too well .  Now I will share a few of the pictures with you.  Disney is just one of those things on my list.  I will check this one off my list and move on to something else.  I am so thankful that God allowed us to go and to travel to and from safely.  May we be so fortunate and blessed to spend more time together as a family.  I love my husband and my kids.  And I love to spend time with them!  (even if it is nowhere else but home)
