What could these things have in common? Its the thanks that Wayne got from his Little League kids on Saturday night for a season well done. We had an all day tournament for all 165 kids we had playing, and the kids seemed to have a blast at it.
Its incredible the amount of organizing it takes to run a season of baseball -- especially considering we started completely from scratch this year...5 months ago, we didn't have fields, equipment, or for that matter, kids to play!
There's a lot of work dealing with 12 different teams, and 12 different coaches, all with different personalities -- some with too little enthusiasm, some with a little too much, and thankfully, most with just the right amount.
My "job" for baseball with Wayne has been pretty much the same as my job for life with Wayne...I am the official ORGANIZER -- reminding him when things need to be done, people need to be called, keeping schedules and handing out information.
This week is my last week off for summer before I go back to work, so I will be busy tidying up the loose ends of our baseball season, busying driving kiddos to before-school-starts dental cleanings and soccer games; trying to squeeze a little school shopping in, and someone-hit-me-up-the-side-of-my-head-and-knock-some-sense-in-me-now, going to see a 7-week old puppy that I'm going to fall hopelessly in love with and most likely bring home.
Its amazing how my ordinary days twist and turn and weave themselves into quite an extraordinary life.
