Monday Monday.....

The weeks truly are flying by!! I can't believe we are past mid June!! It has been close to insane around here, running every direction, sometimes I wonder how Taylor knows which type of ball to grab, baseball, basketball or football!!!

I finally finished up this simple set of tags and got pictures of them AND put them in my Shop!!

And these.......

And if you are looking for something NEW for Americana:

So I have been trying to be busy....have some really fun ideas floating around, lets hope I can get them out before too long!

Spondylolysis, Lumbosacral

Wow about those words?? This is what Emily's condition is/was called. In regular terms, Emily has a small stress crack in the L5 level of her vertebre. She was diagnosised back in April and has been wearing a molded plastic-like brace for the past 7 weeks. Yesterday, we made the trek back to Abbott Northwestern Piper Building to the Twin Cities Spine Center.

It was really strange, my husband's stepdad had an appointmen at the Heart Hospital at Abbott at the same time. We were only a few floors and a few corners away from each other!

Emily was told she could start to wean from the brace and get into PT sessions and life should be back to normal!! She is hoping she can get her stamina back and be on the school dance team again this coming year!

After we did the hospital thing, we landed here:

This could possibly be my all time favorite store!!

Now that I have Emily on the mend, I have to take Sadie to the vet, she has the annoying habit of licking her front paws until they are almost raw. I am not sure what they will do for her, but there seems to be a problem and I guess I have to find out what it is!

Just got back from the vet---allergies!! It is always something! Had to get meds for her too! UGH!

The Boys of Summer

It begins today, the first day of summer vacation AND BASEBALL!! This morning was the first practice for VFW!! This team will play through the middle of July.....don't worry, I will give you plenty of updates! This morning, they finished the practice off with 'field maintenance'!! The one in the orange shorts is mine, notice how he stands there and watches the 5 year old rake!! Gotta love teenagers!

The little guy belongs to one of the coaches!!

Sorry about all the fencing, there just isn't a good place to take a picture at this field!!

Here is a better picture of my almost 16 year old son (who gives me my gray hair), this was taken after his 9th grade season. I suppose he is chewing on sunflower seeds! Is there anything else to chew on at a baseball game??

I am working on some new things for my Etsy site and Ebay, have you seen my America Star Banner on Ebay? If you love Americana, you must take a peek:

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I think we are playing B's baseball (that would be the other team Taylor plays on) and then rush back for a spaghetti dinner at the local VFW!!

In the name of baseball......Amy
