Oh my goodness! It’s a new post. . .yeah, yeah, yeah!
School has officially let out for Summer break today and I will try to do better at blogging. I know many people are tired of pulling up the site to see nothing new. So here is a funny for your day. .
Julian has gotten his baseball season off to a good start. They just finished their third game last night and the team has one two of the games. They are a pretty good little team and each week I can see progress. He is really enjoying playing.
Here are some pics of his very first game. It was really fun to watch this new experience take place in his little life.
In the dugout.
Ready to swing.
This is my favorite! Isn’t he cute!
So here is the funniest thing about this day. . .
One thing we had to purchase to go with his uniform was a jock strap and cup. The night of the game Tom takes this strappy contraption out of the package and begins to show me the workings of it. I felt like I was having a bra explained to me for the first time. (I’ve never examined one of these). He explained the “jock” and the “cup” and how it snaps inside it’s cover. Quite fascinating. Tom sort of sighed this big sigh and said “Wow, this is like a right of passage! Come on Julian, let’s go to your room!” I had to laugh.
Then when he came out in his uniform – completely proud – he went around to the little ones and showed them how you could knock on his cup and hear it. I really laughed when I saw Evely knocking on Julian’s crotch.
When we got to the game it was hysterical. You could see that all these little boys were wearing something very foreign to them. They adjusted, knocked, tugged and held onto them! I can gladly report that now that they have completed their third game, they are settled into the feel for all their gear.
Another reason that I haven’t had time to blog is because my Mom and I had a quick one day garage sale. It amazingly takes a good week to prepare for those things! This one was sad because I got rid of my crib – forever. The crib that I remember like yesterday putting together with Tom. Yup, the crib that held all three of my babies. The same crib that each child moved out of to house a new one coming. Now it’s gone. . .forever. No more crib. . .forever. . .
Okay, you get the point! It was a hard moment to load that up in someone’s truck for a mere $50.00.
BUT, dear Evely has a new toddler bed. She loves it and it is so cute. That will be my next post, so stay tuned.
Anyway, while getting ready for the garage sale Tom yelled at me to get the camera and come see Evely’s new purse.
Here it is!
Can you make it out?
Yup, it’s the cup!
There are many uses for a good jock strap and cup and it serves nicely for a purse of a young lady getting into her car.
