Grandson and his baseball team are in their end of season tournament, and have won their first two games. They got chocolate bars yesterday from the local Hyundai dealership because they were also one of the teams of the week. Their coach also received Coach of the Year in the Mosquito division.....so it was a pretty great day for this team! They had also just had an intense game in the blazing heat where they beat the other team 13-12. They went into the last inning leading 12-5.....and it was very exciting!

We went back to the sports field for Pretty Girl's game at 1 o'clock. The day started out warm and just got hotter as the day progressed. I managed to use sunscreen but I forgot to do my neck. I may or may not be a little bit pink. Oops.
Pretty Girl played 1st base in her first inning too!
And she hit the ball way out to center field. It was awesome!
The team started out with two boys on it....but one stopped coming about half way through the season. They all had a fun game this afternoon.
Pretty Girl is Number 10......here is the team waiting to receive their medals.
Team picture. There were a bunch of happy kids on their last day of the season.
Showing me her medal!
And with her favourite coach! Great job DIL and the Heat!

It's Closing Day for softball today and we started it out with a 9 am game for Sweetheart. She had a super game, where she fielded well and hit well. It's always so bittersweet when the season ends because all of the girls play their hearts out. And they have come so far in just a few short months.
She played first base for the first inning.
And if you look really close you can see the ball that she hit between her and the pitcher. I love the look on her face....
The sun was in a bad spot when they were handing out medals. But you can see the fun bouncy castle in the background!
Waiting for their medals. Sweetheart is wearing Number 5.
Another softball season has come to an end. Way to go Batgirls!
She's so proud to get a medal!
Her Daddy was one of her coaches!

We went to the playground this morning and we were inundated by 20 small children who had come to play from the school daycare. Sweet Pea didn't mind one bit and just kept on playing while my other little ones were overwhelmed. So we headed off to play in the "forest", which is where we always end up on most days anyway.
My little poser is way too cute. She insisted that I take her picture!

We took Sweetheart to her track and field practice tonight......she has been going since the middle of May and is really enjoying herself. But like her Daddy says, "What kid doesn't like running, jumping and throwing things?" Lol.
She has softball on Mondays and Wednesdays and she has Track on Tuesdays and Thursdays. She's still dancing on Tuesdays too, so she's a very busy girl!

May was a very eventful month. I started my 16 radiation treatments on May 1st and I finished them on May 23rd. I requested the last appointment of every day and they said they did their best to accommodate me, but the schedule was all over the place. A few of my appointments were in the morning and the majority were in the afternoon, but it was a very crazy three weeks plus a day. I worked a lot of the mornings until noon or two o'clock, and a few days I didn't work at all. But it went by fast!
I feel very fortunate to have gone through it without any negative side effects. No bad sunburn. And no extra tiredness that doesn't come already with going to and from Abbotsford every day. I'm not sleeping very well but I still feel very blessed. The only reason that I'm not sleeping very well is because I started taking tamoxifen in mid-April and it has brought back all of the menopause symptoms that were actually just starting to disappear. Night sweats are not fun. At all! Hopefully, my oncologist is right and it will only be bad for the first couple of months and my body will adjust. I have an appointment with the Cancer Agency at the end of June and I will see what comes next. I'm actually not really sure, but I don't think my treatment plan will be too intense.
