Good Weekend

Let's see, where should I start?

Wednesday night at lax practice T twisted her ankle pretty bad so we've been icing her and doing lots of advil. She had a game Saturday and Kenny the trainer taped her up pretty good. Thursday we met Chris @ Mama Goldberg's in Homewood for lunch and from there bought T a new pair of jazz shoes and tap shoes to get her ready for her two-week dance intensive starting Monday. I'm so excited about her taking a tap class. I've been bugging her for a while now to try tap; I think it will make her a more well rounded dancer (and I also think tap is a lost art). I luv, luv, luv watching KJ do tap! She looks so darn cute!!! Anyway, I hope T's ankle doesn't bother her too much tomorrow -- especially on pointe.

Friday I had an appointment at the orthopedics's office. My left heel has been bothering me for a long time now. I can barely put any weight on it and it's very painful. After 2 x-rays, turns out I have something called "plantar fasciitis" and I have a heel spur. They gave me a shot of cortisone in my heel and I'll have to do some physical therapy. I stopped at Lowe's on the way home and bought a new umbrella for the patio. Whoop-de-doo!

Friday night we took the kids to the drive-in movie way down in Harpersville. We had a lot of fun despite the gale-force winds, the thunder & lightening and the torrential downpour. We saw "Up" and the first few minutes of Hannah Montana (couldn't take the rain any longer by the time Hannah started). Poor Austin. T never told him what movies were playing until we actually pulled into the drive-in. He and Chris had to suffer thru Up and Hannah. hahaha

Saturday was a long lacrosse day. Chris had the Copperheads come over from GA to play some of the BamaLax teams. Thank God his buddy @ BSC let him use the turf -- the rain was so bad here in the morning! The U15 game was a heart-breaker (BamaLax lost by 1) and things went sort of downhill from there. The Varsity Boys lost, the Varsity Girls lost (badly) and then the BamaLax Varsity Boys played Chris's men's team (the old man, or "Big 'un" as he's also known) scored 6 for the men. I think, but please don't quote me on this, that the BamaLax girls had 3 shots on goal the entire game and T had 2 of them. Not bad for a kid running around on a bum ankle.

Kendall got to hang with some of her little lax buddies at the game(s) yesterday and I over-heard her telling one of her friends that Austin spends so much time w/ us, he's like a step-brother to her. It was really cute.
So today we are celebrating Father's Day a week early with Chris. Next weekend he'll be busy w/ the Alabama Games and Saturday & Sunday T is dancing w/ Colby Shinn, a famous choreographer. We had a big breakfast of bacon and eggs and for lunch we had Caribbean jerk shrimp skewers, scallops, steak and baked potatoes. Strawberry shortcake for dessert. The girls bought Chris Metallica's Guitar Hero for Wii and I bought him a NY Jets flag to hang in the garden during football season. It's been a very, very nice day having Chris home and just relaxing for a change.
