This week was a little bit crazy. Jake & I got back from Fairhope Sunday afternoon. I left Monday morning for Chattanooga to work in our corporate office for a few days. Thankfully Jake's summer camp has early enough drop off times & late enough pick up times that wouldn't interfere with Rob's work schedule too much.
On Monday, Jake's YMCA summer baseball team had their first game. I was so sad I had to miss it! Thankfully Rob was there helping coach & Mimi & Granddad were there in the stands to cheer him on. YMCA baseball is a lot more laid back then the city league baseball we finished up in May. And from the 2 practices I've watched, it seems like the Y players are a little more on Jake's level. Y baseball is coach pitch for 3 tries and then the batter can hit from a tee. And the games only last 50 minutes (YAHOO!!) so they basically just play 2 innings. Jake got a hit from the coach's pitch both times up to bat. Way to go Jake!

I swiped this picture from another mom's facebook page.
On Tuesday night, Robbie had a business dinner, so we are so thankful to the Bush's for helping us out! Granddad went & picked Jake up from camp on Tuesday and Jake just spent the night with them.
I got back Wednesday night and then Robbie left Thursday for a business trip.
While he was gone, I got these in the mail. A big thank you to my sister for picking up these curtains from Ikea for me (they were not available for purchase online). I am using them for 4 different projects in 3 different rooms.
Finally on Saturday, for the first day in over a week, we were all together. I got a few more things for the nursery (the rocking chair will be painted & have a seat cover made for it).
|And we are STILL going through boxes of toys & stuff to get rid of!|
Excuse the mess all around!
We spent Saturday from lunchtime to dinner time at the pool. Several kids from Jake's baseball team live in our neighborhood, so Jake has had fun having other kids to play with at the pool. (As opposed to the very fun & exciting play times he usually has when it is just him & mom!)

On Sunday, we dropped Jake off at the Bush's as they are taking him & their other grandson Jackson on vacation to Gatlinburg this week. Jake is so excited!!
