Sarah Heads To the Basket

The painters have been here all day and it's freaking my cat out. She could hear them talking and laughing as they papered and taped off the windows. They'd slide their hands down with the tape and it was a kind of creepy-sounding. You'd think we'd be used to noises in an apartment complex, but w..........

Okay, I was gone for a minute. The FedEx man just brought a huge box of Burt's Bees skin care products to review for Pretty By Nature. WooHoo! I love my job.

Oh, here's Amelia........ And I can see Greg out front. All my kids are working their way home. Sarah, too. She started choir. Max's bus. This is a busy time of day.


I took some shots of Sarah playing basketball this weekend. She played in a tournament and now it's all over until next year. I loved every minute of watching those girls. They were so bold and scrappy. I know that I've said that before, but I've watched Sarah sort of retreat into a shell this year and it's been sad to watch. Basketball was an adventure. She was Larger Than Life Sarah again.

Here's Sarah heading toward the basket. In this game they played against their "sister" team. The other Notre Dame team - one was White and one was Blue, although they look black and white here.



This is from the second game. I really don't know what I'm doing with these action shots.


Is it wrong that I'm proud of her agressiveness in this shot? The first day we were shocked by how rough the girls got. They would knock each other over and grab the ball and roll around on the floor. Sarah got more comfortable with the more physical side of the game.


Heading back to the basket...........



We are transitioning at work again. We are changing Lifestyles over to Blisstree this afternoon. This was my last official Dating Dames post. After this I will be one of the Relationships team. I think they plan on having 5 of us.
Veggie Chic was going to be gone, but somehow it's going to make it and be part of.....food, I think. I was running out of time, they were due to lock us out, so I quickly wrote about my lunch, which was so damn good. And I'm giving away some skincare at Pretty By Nature.
Now I'm off to get Bay............

sports are wonderful for kids and I love seeing when girl's sports are encouraged

sports saved my son many times when he was feeling isolated or lost

any time some work is being done in the house I have to put Siren in a locked room and Mia goes in the kennel - which takes up half my hallway - they are freaked out beyond belief by any unexpected activity

You got some great action shots. It seems that all sports are rough and it doesn't matter if it's boys or girls. The Berts Bees are a favorite of my mail carrier. She loves the hand cream and the lip balm and is out in the elements all the time...

Thanks for commenting, ladies! :D

I think that the more comfortable kids feel in their own skin, the better, and something like basketball is great for that.

I was putting the patio back together and Amelia stuck her head through the blinds to watch me. So silly.

Burt's Bees - I tried the scrub today. Allthe products always smell so good.

Good work all round!
