Yes can you believe it, I'm still whining about Patrick being gone! Pathetic I know, I just got spoiled to him being home so much. In his line of work he is able to leave early in the day and work from home a lot so we never go more than three hours without seeing each other. It is nice that he is able to to that because it helps me a lot with Hadley and being 34 weeks pregnant his schedule really comes in handy! Okay enough about that already! Last night Hadley and I stayed in Claremore with my mom and Tom. Hadley got to see the horses and feed them, she had so much fun. Here are some pics.
Kaston had a game last night in Jenks at 7:45! SO late! I do not make it to many of his games at that time in fact I've only been to one this season. When we signed him up for Marquette baseball we didn't realize that it was with a Jenks league and all of our games would be there. Its about 25 min from BA to where they play deep in Jenks and the 7:45 games to not work well with Hadley's bedtime. Kaston usually gets home around 10:00 and is in bed by 10:30 which is entirely to late for a school night! Kaston has struggled this season with hitting too. He now plays kid pitch and those games are so boring! There are not near as many hits as there are with coach pitch. Also Kaston does a lot better in practice for some reason and recently admitted to having stage fright. Poor guy I just wish he could find a groove and start liking baseball more. Not getting any hits in some of his games here recently has affected his confidence too. : ( We are making him stick with it though because once he really develops he will be great because he has such an athletic build and Id hate to see it go to waste!
One another note- last Friday on April 28th, Kaston had one bad luck of a day! Lets just start with the fact I got a call from the assistant principal at 11:00! She told me that Kaston had been sent to the office twice already and by two different teachers! Let me just say that Kaston is pretty well behaved and this was totally a shocker even to Tracey (asst princ). Friday was a bad combination though, not only was it almost the weekend but he had a sub and all the kids were going wild according to the sub.Poor Sub! I remember being in elementary and having a sub, it was pretty much something as kids we all looked forward to because we got a way with a lot more! So when Kaston got home I asked him what happened in music class and he proceeded to tell me that Mr. W (a not so favorite teacher in the school) told him to stop talking just once and then sent him to the office. The sub sent him for playing with playdo and Kaston claims that he did not hear him and kept playing with it. Hate to sound like that parent of a child who does no wrong but COME ON! Both situations sound a little petty to me. If you cannot control your students then maybe teaching/subbing is not for you. However I did talk to Kaston about respecting and listening to subs and other teachers who are not his main teacher. He also is grounded from his xbox and PSP for a week. Now here is the real kicker! A couple hours after being home from school Kaston went out and Patrick's putter just so happened to be out there with some golf balls and Kaston Chipped a ball into one of our bedroom windows on accident!!! I heard it from the living room and Kaston came right in. His face was ghost white and he looked scared to death! lol That was enough punishment for me just to know how scared he was to tell us. Poor kid is at a tough age and hard to entertain without electronics and the one time he picks up a golf club he breaks a window! I know it was an accident so he did not get in trouble but he is not getting the bday present he wanted- instead it will be his way of paying us back. Just when you don't think it can get any worse...it does! Thank God our windows are doubled paned and only the outside pane broke! With Patrick leaving on Monday we are not able to get it fixed until he gets back so I'm just thankful there is no outside air coming in! Needless to say both Hadley and Kaston stayed with Nana and Papa Friday night because momma needed a break! lol
Tonight Whitney and Chris are staying the night with us. It should be fun, we plan on ordering takeout from somewhere and watching a movie in the theater room! That is of course if I can figure out how to turn the projector on! Patrick usually messes with that side of it. Well that is all for today! I know it was a pretty long post...
