Girls Rule

We started our weekend out by going to a great 40th birthday party for a friend.  We danced until the guy with the guitar quit for the night.  We laughed so much at ourselves and acted very stupid.  It was a blast.

On Saturday Clara played 3 basketball games back to back.  She is playing on an all girl basketball team with some of her best softball friends.  They played mostly all boy teams.  There was one other all girl team in the league.  Needless to say they ended up winning the whole age group.  It was awesome.  We enjoyed watching the Daddies of the boys when we played them.  They couldn't stand it.  The mother's of the boys thought it was cool though.  The last team we played was overheard saying "This is the girl team, they will be easy."  Famous last words.....  These boys learned a valuable life lesson this weekend.  Never underestimate a woman!!  Clara did not make a shot in the first two games, and I told her to keep shooting because the law of averages she will start making them.  She made 6 points in that game.  The best part was she came over, across the court after she made the first shot and said I was right.  Clara is extremely independent and does not ever consult me about sports, so I felt very special at that moment.

Rob had a basketball game that they lost in overtime, but it was a super game too.  Lewis and I were just along for the ride.  We enjoyed the beautiful weather and the kids had their first baseball and softball practices.  Clara gave me a pedicure last night too, a lot cheaper than the nail places.  We also watched Toddlers and Tiara's, that is crazy stuff.   The craziest part is the money these people spend, and most look like they don't have it to spend.  We have our own kind of crazy around here, but I hope it is a little more normal.
