Aaron had his first baseball game yesterday. They played East Memorial Christian Academy, a much larger school with way more funds coming in and a much larger team. So at this point we don't have uniforms and had to get the girls softball teams jerseys from last year so that everyone at least had the same shirt on. We have only had one practice where all 12 players were at practice, most of the time we only had 8 or so players there to practice. Needless to say we were not expected to win.

First we were in Target and I picked out a card and gave it to him and said, "If I was going to buy you a Valentine's Day card this would be the one I would buy." Then he did the same. Then we were at Wal-Mart and he saw a cute teddy bear and said, "If I was going to buy you a gift for Valentine's Day this is what I would buy." It was kind of cool to see his thought process of what he would buy and we both got to see that we were thinking of one another and all without spending a dime. And just think these were only the pre-gifts.
So tomorrow we are both off of work and will spend Valentine's Day together enjoying one another's company (okay so inbetween Aaron's baseball practice, but hey whatever works). There is nothing better than doing suttle things like leaving a love note on your hubby's pillow for them to find when they get home, or having their favorite dinner cooked for them when they get home, or offering to watch their favorite movie with then even though you think it is stupid and hate the movie. In the long run all that really matters is that you have each other, your family, and most importantly you have GOD in your lives. Happy Valentine's Day to all who read this and may the ultimate love of GOD touch each and every one of you.

So we aren't off to that great of a learning experience by now and of all the luck on your first time driving that an ambulance decides to turn on the road behind you. So I instruct him to pull over to the right and come to a stop. "Why do I have to do that?" was the response I got. Okay so now I am irritated, "because that is what your driving book told you that you have to do and it is the law!!" Okay so all now that is explained. So the ambulance goes by and now we are starting to go again and instead of just pulling into the lane we were in he starts driving in both lanes. AAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!! So now I am stearnly telling him that he can not do that as there may have been a car in that lane not that he would know if there was because he didn't look!!!!!!!!!! Breathe in, breath out, one, two, three, four, five. Okay, so now we are halfway to school. The rest of the drive was okay until we get to the school. He pulls over into the right hand lane, using his blinker and all (yipee, lookin' good) and I feel the car stopping, keep in mind that we have to take a right to get into the school, we are in the right hand lane and he comes to a stop. WHAT?!! He then asks if the car that was on the opposite side of the road wanting to turn left into the school had the right of way. Are you kidding me? NO YOU HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY GO!!!! Phew we are at the school, we didn't hit any cars, didn't run over anyone, but man I could really use a stiff drink.
Okay so the next day after school he decides to drive home. What are the odds that we would come upon another emergency vehicle? You guessed it we did. This time there is a cop on the side of the road with his lights on. "What do I do?" he asks. "You have to try to get into the other lane cause it's the law." At this point we are right up on the cop car and he starts veering into the other lane.....THERE IS A CAR IN THAT LANE. So now I explain why you can't do that and you have to pay attention to lots of things at one time when you are driving. Dang, I sure am glad that I am not a driving instructor. The lesson that I have learned....maybe I should leave the driving lessons to Stuart.

The band was so funny. They played 80's music and sadly enough I knew most of the songs. The guys in the band wore funny outfits and wigs and were really a hoot. They sang really well though and sounded like the original singers of the songs they were singing.
I have to admit towards the end of the night, the redneck in me came out and I had my shoes off dancing barefoot. It must have been a man that made high heels!!!!! All of us girls really cleaned up well from our jeans and t-shirts. Glamour girls!!!!
Well I guess that is the latest from Sweet Home Alabama!! More to come soon........
Anyway, I was just so excited to finally find a church that we love to go to and a place that we can seek encouragement and find spiritual support.
Aaron now has a girlfriend, Gabby, who is absolutely adorable, sweet, makes good grades and is not a psycho. Phew!! That is such a relief, I was beginning to think he only liked the psycho chicks that call 30 times a day (not exaggeratig), forbid him from speaking to any other girls and calling anywhere from 12AM to 5AM not thinking anything is wrong with that. Man, two psychos ago I had to do a federal tracing complaint and contact the Sheriff's Department. That was in Florida so hopefully we left all of the severe psychos there. Anyway, several weeks ago he and Gabby went to the Birmingham Zoo with her mom, step-dad and sister. He had a really good time.
Aaron played football this year and we absolutely enjoyed going to his games and watching him play. It was great to see him take pride in the way he played and in trying to do the best he could. We tried basketball and lets just say he is a lot like his mom and he won't try to play again. Right now we are starting baseball practices and if he can keep his grades up I think he will be a part of a really awesome team this year. I am looking forward to the games starting so I can take pictures and share with everyone.
