Monday: T ball and rest (also known as catch up on laundry, house work and grocery shop, so technically is it really rest?). We had our first melt down on the field. We got there right before the coaches started and he refused to take his glove onto the field. No big deal, he could do what they were doing without a glove. He was playing with the kids prior to start and everything was great. I have no clue why the switch flipped, but after the first warm up lap around the field, he came running to me hysterically crying. He wouldn't say exactly what had happened, but something had to have happened. We elected to watch t-ball from the stands, versus participating, but we did not get a cheeseburger afterwards which is usually our reward for trying. We have one more week of clinic, and then we will have a break from any organized practice for a little while. While I am glad he has the opportunity to participate in these mini clinics, I think maturity wise he is just too young to really get any benefit out of them. Oh well, they are cheap and fun when he does participate, and we will try again next year when he is four.
Tuesday: Due to the threat of tornadoes and severe thunderstorms that actually caused me to get off work early and pick andrew up early, I had to hit the mill for a quick 4 miles. Thank goodness Rock my run just added a prince mix or I would have lost my mind! I just never can get into mill running.
Wednesday: Planned strength, but my BRF called and needed to get 6 miles in, so off I went. It was SUPER windy from the west and north, but the temp was good as was the conversation. We were amazed at how flooded the newly planted fields were. I have never seen flooding this bad in all of my years running this route. The wind was blowing so hard that the little miniature lakes had waves. Poor Stella wanted to get in so bad, but the waves scared her. The flooding seemed to have torn up our rural road pretty bad. You could see where the water had actually been over the top of the road. The ditches over by the humane society were full to the top, and some of those ditches are deep!
