Hello again

Lots of shit going on around this place, I don't even know where to start. 

First baseball game last Tuesday.
It was a close game, but they lost. 
Caden got two runs in and pitched two innings until he had a collision with the catcher and runner and smacked his head on their helmets then the ground. 
Shook him up pretty good, but no concussion thankfully.
After the game however he says his right knee is killing him. 
So I took him to the doc the next day.
LCL strain is the diagnosis.
 Minimum of two weeks out of baseball and gym at school.
He is totally bummed, but quite glad it is not worse and depending on how he heals -HE  MUST TAKE IT EASY to facilitate healing - will still be able to have a good baseball season.
No idea when or how he was injured. 
Could have been when he was practically tackled while manning second base, the collision while pitching or even when he was stealing bases and sliding.

Looking cute in his new glasses, sporting the required brace - looking longingly at a friends pond.

Finally talked his siblings into boating with him.
Course he couldn't paddle so got a free ride. 

They paddled him up and down the pond. 
Then up and down again.

Somehow my youngest two children had never flown kites before.
How does that happen?
Chyann running to get Caden's kite up for him since he isn't allowed to run.
Check out how lovely her thick hair looks flying behind her.


 Chyann had to try it our for herself. They both had a blast flying kites for the first time.

And I got talked into paddling the pond for Caden too. 
Which I must admit, was a hell of a lot of fun. 

Much more that I could add, but will save for another day.

Have a good one.

thats the kind of boat i want at the place that TJ and I have.

I have not flown a kite in years! I will have to give it a try some time.

Damn that boy plays hard!!! I hope his knee heals up well and quickly. Following the doc's instructions will help, I'm sure.

I love flying kites, we need to do that next time we go to the beach. It's such a cool thing to do.

Hope Caden's knee heals quickly!
Isn't it amazing how something so simple as flying a kite or paddling around a pond can make your day?!
Looks like it's gonna be a busy summer for you!! (0:

I absolutely LOVE those paddle boats. The last one I was in though was sinking and we had to be drug back to shore before it completely sank... that's been like 13 years ago... lol. So sad that he keeps getting hurt, at least it isn't horrible!
