We did win the volleyball game :) in 2 sets!
Then Tue night I switched over to softball.... a little rusty we all were... we lost. BUT I think we got the kinks out and we should be good for the rest of the season.

I have to say I was a bit unimpressed with Alis choice of men that ABC has chosen for her. Oh well we will see what happens, it looks like a lot of drama from the previews, but when is there not added drama on the show? I did watch a 20- 20 eposide a while back and the producer of the show was on there and said the purposefully cast villians...GOODNESS! I am guessing that Justin is the villian this season. My favorite grabs this far are: Roberto and Chris L. We will see!

Amazing Ryan

Below is a conversation I had with my amazing 10 year old buddy Ryan. He was diagnoised with a rare form of Cancer in 2007 and has fought hard this whole time, getting into remission 2x, but this last time..... it was throughout his body. His brain, his lungs, his spine and random other places. He was a brave soul, and I went up Tue night say goodbye to him, and this was our conversation! Trust me when I say that this was a conversation that is not typical for a 10 year old boy, but for Ry his faith was evident the whole time I knew him.

"I feel like," Ry said, "if this is a war, than we've already lost the war. But that's okay, cuz we've already won it two times. I'm not afraid anymore."

"Ok, Ry, but what's that mean?" I asked.

"Cancer. We've lost the war against cancer."

"Right. But what does that mean for you, Buddy?"


"That's right, Buddy. And it's just like stepping through the door to go outside. You'll just step through the door when it is your time, and you'll be in Jesus' arms."

[My voice broke before I could complete that thought.]

and then we began to play the Wii, it took all his energy to drive the race car..... but he won :)

This morning, Ry made that step through the door..... He is now in Heaven. We are all sad here, but Heaven is rejoicing!
Rest in peace Buddy!

Baby showers, graduation parties and more

So in the past 9 days I have had 3 baby showers, a bridal shower and a graduation party. Phew it has been busy, if this is a preview of how my summer is going to go, aut oh, I am in trouble. I love going to these events tho and are so happy for my wonderful friends who are experiencing these life changing events in their lives.
I only had my camera for a few events, so hopefully the others that were there will be sending me copies of their photos - so for now:

Here is Julie and I. She is expecting little Callie Mae on June 1 ( scheduled c- section) She is so excited to have a glass of wine, that she has packed the bottles in her hospital bag :)

Here is Ali and I, she is expecting Elijah Michael sometime around the 17th of June. Her family and her husband are sports fanatics, so his shower was "TEAM ELIJAH" CONGRATS! I cant wait to snuggle them :)
