Baseball has offically begun!!!

Yes.... it is official, baseball season has now started for us.  The pure craziness and fun, and long evenings and weekends are here for the next several months now!!!  We started things off over this past weekend, with Evan's team playing back to back practice games at Bender Fields...... we arrived at 10:30am, and didn't finish up until after 4pm!!!  And this was simply a couple of practice games.....

Last night, Sierra started off her season with her first game, played in Deming at 6pm.  The weather held off from the rain, but stayed cold and miserable for parents.  The game went on, and Sierra played great, and had fun.  It would appear that her team won, although they don't actually keep score officially at this age level.

Tonight starts Evan's season officially, with his first game at 6pm, over at NW Fields.  So far, the weather appears to be cooperating once again.  It will be fun to be spending about 5 days a week with baseball games and practices, all over the county!!!  And then, there will be games on the weekend for Sierra, and more than likely some full weekend tournaments coming up for Evan's team as well.  Let the craziness begin!!!  :-)

In addition to baseball..... I have taken on the Advocare 24 day challenge, along with my brother, Brad.  We are just on day 2, so nothing to report as of yet.  I weighed in yesterday morning, and will do weekly weigh-ins on Monday mornings..... it will be interesting to see what happens.  Brad and I are both hoping to see impressive results.

On the Dave Ramsey class front..... we have complete Baby Step #1, which is fantastic.  That is a huge relief.  However, the next step is even harder it seems..... we have to come up with a cash flow plan and full on monthly budget for us, along with several other forms to complete, all before next Sunday.  This should be fun and interesting, as it takes both Tracie and myself to do them together... and we will be fighting around my work schedule, her schedule at the kids' school, and baseball all week.  But, we are committed, and we want to get ourselves financially in am  much better place......so, we will do this!!!

The new money plan we are using, consisting of a budget and using the envelope method for keeping money in separate categories.... it is working really great so far.  I am hopeful that we will be able to expand on this as our finances get better, and as we find ways to get additional income in the future.

OK, time to get back to busy again.  Things to do........
