    My kids are going on an RV trip with their grandparents today for a little over a week. Tomorrow we're going to watch a middle school softball game. lol. It's one of DD's teammates then we're going to have dinner after with her parents. So, just social time. We're still working on building our team up. The big 3 have tryouts this weekend so hopefully next week we'll get some girls to our open workouts. We only need a few but I'm not a fan of uncertainty.

    Team is on a short break until tryouts on 8/20, which means I will be...

    - Installing a 2x4 between the floor joists in our kitchen floor to provide support under the seam where 2 pieces of the plywood subfloor meet. I'm not a big fan of crawling around under my house. There are spiders.
    - Replacing the automatic sprinkler timer for my front yard. It hasn't worked since before Maddie started playing travel ball. My front yard looks embarrassingly awful.
    - Researching methods for gopher elimination. Not only is my front lawn dead, but it is riddled with holes and dirt mounds. Might be Caddy Shack time...

    Also...Maddie's new cleats showed up this week. First set of metals. I'm hoping they last a little longer than the plastic ones. She's been wearing them down to smooth every 3-4 months...New chest protector should be here any day, too.

    lol...several times actually!!

    The twins are working hard, HS tryouts are supposed to be Monday & Tuesday but it's up in the air (weather related as well as a coach situation that is just ugly)....cross country is looking good this season. Also, heading down to LSU for the Select 30 camp this coming week (kid will miss the first two days of HS classes for that trip).

    I hope to marinate some ice cubes later today....

    DD tryouts are done and all set for 18U next year. DS tryout is Saturday, same club, moving up to 13U and full-size 90' diamond.

    On Sunday leaving for Costa Rica for 11 days. No bats, no gloves, no cleats, no balls. A nice break before fall showcases and practices start back up.
    Donít practice until you get it right. Practice until you canít get it wrong.

    Surprisingly nothing softball related this weekend. We have some great August weather this weekend, so planning on going to the farm and start getting prepped for the upcoming deer season before the heat comes back.
