Are ya ready for some baseball?

The Crawford Majors Team played on Tuesday night in Chadron.  They started off strong, and keep the score at 4 to 4.  Pitching in the 4th inning caused some scoring by the Chadron team.  Andy went in to relieve the pitcher and threw three he struck out!  It was awesome!  Our boys stole at least a half of dozen bases.  Aaron even stole home!  It was a great learning experiece for everyone despite the score 13- 4....
Andy then played for the Minors on Wednesday night.  He had several great plays and hits.  He even tried batting left handed and hit a home run!  IT WAS AWESOME!  The Minors played well, and improvement can be seen since last year already!

He's Here!

Our new horse, Roxi had her baby!  Mom and Dad purchased her last fall, knowing she was expecting.... and yesterday little Stone was born!  He is so cute and soft.  Andy, Meggie and I rode the Rino"Fred" up the pasture to see him, where he ways laying down having a nap in the sunshine.  I approached him and Roxi with caution....slowly.....slowly.  I petted and rubbed him while he was sleeping.  Then he awoke and stretched his VERY long legs out and then stood up!  He is so cute!  He has a little short mane and tail....which I petted.  (Andy and Megs were too scared to get out of "Fred")  So, then he had a drink while slurping..... cute!
You are probably wondering why this is so significant.  Okay, in all of my years I remember at the Ranch, we have not had a colt born.  So, it is SUPER cool!  Meggie loved that Papa called her bright and early yesterday morning.... because we have been waiting impatiently for lil' Stones arrival!
Yea, God is good!

Lord, hear our prayer...

Today is National Day of Prayer.  SO what better time to send up our thoughts, fears, hopes, and joys!
Heavenly Father, today we pray for everyone. YES, we all need help from above....  I pray for little Miss Addi, who is recovering from surgery in Denver. Please help her to heal and to be able to eat, we want her to come home and be with her family.  Lord, please see that all those who are in need of surgeries, that you help them recover and heal.  Lord, please help all of my dear friends with all of their tribulations.... they are dear to me!  Please bless and guide all of the graduates to see what path they are to follow for their futures.  It is a difficult time to be an adult, and make wise choices.  Lord, please lay your hands on those who are traveling, and help them to be safe.  Please Lord, let us see your blessings in each of our lives..... we love you so.  Lord, hear our prayer.............AMEN.

A new windy day....

Yet another day of wind.... no wonder that people go crazy and do stupid things when the wind blows for days on end.  The same is true for consecutive hot summer days.  One thing is certain, I am glad that we golfed yesterday.  It was something that Hubs and I were so craving... maybe it was the alone time.  Having three children wears on the realaionship at times.... or should I say, it suffers greatly.  So, when we get the opportunity this spring, we will be golfing and repairing our relationship!---another gift from above----
Well, today Meggie and I are going to try to tackle her imploded room.  She just has entirely too many "things"--- dollys, kitchen stuff, stuffed animals ect, ect.  SO, you may have to throw me a line to make it our of her black abyss....
Oh, and I have some serious projects in the works..... mama's day cards!
Take Care all on this Windy DAMN day!

Mom's tulips.....
No, not that kind, sillies!  I think it is my cold.... headache, runny nose and tiredness.  It was a long day yesterday with the Garage Sale, and I don't think I will have another. I would much rather go to Garage Sales, or even better, ANTIQUE-ing!
So, today we are plotting the attack of the day.  We are thinking some GOLF!  YEA!  We have a membership at LBGC, but have yet to use it.
BUT, the wind blows again.  YUCK!
Have a great day all!

My favs.
