I have been quiet around here.  The end-of-the-year calendar has been very full, and life will continue at this crazy pace for a couple more weeks.  I have made a few things that I'll show you when life slows down, and you're looking at something that I didn't make but that surprised me in the mailbox today!  Thank you, Kristyn!

In the meantime, I'll keep reminding myself to take a deep breath and look around every now and then, and I'll see you all soon.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game...

Saturday we took the kids to their first major league baseball game.  It was also my first time at a Phillies' home game.

It was Youth Baseball Day--so loads and loads of little league teams were there.  The boys and girls went on a "parade" around the field before the game.

Because we had to be to the stadium so early for the parade, we got to watch the Braves take batting practice.  That was fun to watch.  For some reason (unknown to us), the Phillies did not take BP that day.

In this picture, Bobby has just realized that the crazy woman madly waving her arms around up in the cheap seats is his mother.  I was so tickled!

The hometown heroes weren't able to pull out a win on Saturday, but all the Evanses (is that even a word?) had a great time.

Hey there

Hmm, another week gone by?  You know how it is--spring time is crazy with activities.  Baseball games, dance class, dance pictures, birthday parties, et cetera.  Throw in some random spring-time illnesses for the kiddies and you've got a whole lot of fun.  Most everyone is improving--but now I've reached that point in the allergy season where the Zyrtec just can't do any more for me, so I've been a mouth-breathing, itchy-eyed, snoring (according to Rob) mess the last couple of nights.  Tomorrow we're taking the kids to their first Phillies game!  I think I am more excited than they are.

This is the only knitting I've done recently.  It's the mitered hanging towel from one of the Mason-Dixon books.  It's very Fourth of July, I know, but the yarn was on sale.  I am going to make some more of these.  The towel holder in our downstairs bathroom is kinda high, so when the kids go to dry their hands on the hand towel, they inevitably pull it down and then it just lands on the floor because they're too short to put it back in the towel holder.  Not any more!  Now this bad boy is firmly attached, so they can dry their hands and move on to the next thing. 

The Lily of the Valley are blooming in front of our house.  I do just love these sweet little flowers.

Happy Mother's Day to you all!
