Where Have I Been? The Ball Park

So, October didn’t turn out exactly as I imagined. I had asked Jennifer Tankersley to do the Holiday Planning guest post series, with the complete intention of blogging along side her and sharing my thoughts on the topic, and well…

Jennifer has done a fantastic job, and I’m so thankful that she was willing to take over the blog for a little while, because, well, I’ve been at the ball park.

Yep, my boys played Fall baseball, and it  took over our lives – again. Just as it will again in the Spring.

I think I’m just going to have to learn that just as I lived through the season of parenting that involved diapers and children who needed to be supervised every minute of the day, I have to accept this season of parenthood that is spent running children to scout meetings, field trips, activities, baseball practice, and spending hours each week hanging out at the ball field.

Don’t get me wrong, I choose for my kids participate in these activities and I believe they get a great deal from doing so. Otherwise we wouldn’t do it.  I just need to learn to adapt my schedule - including blogging -  and my mindset to accomodate the temporary take over of the schedule.

At the end of the day, I am grateful to Jen Tankersley for stepping up and sharing her Holiday Planning tips with us, and now that baseball seasons is over, I’ll try here in the next few weeks to share some of the thoughts that her articles triggered for me.

P.S. Had to share this picture of Jazzy with you, she’s been coming to the ball park since K got her, and LOVES it! …. if only I could learn to love the ball park as much as Jazzy does :)
