HAPPY EASTER!!!

I went to the Easter service at Grace church to say hi to God. He remembered me. And the service was AMAZING.

After winning two games (see posts from yesterday), the Majestics moved on to bracket play today with an 8:00 game this morning. They lost by 18 to the #3 team in the nation. E had 2 points. Hey, at least he played and scored, right? They are headed back to the hotel now and then will board the bus for an 8-hour ride back to St. Louis. Mmm, mmmm, glad I'm not on that bus right now.

I forgot to mention Krista and the kids' appearance on the TV show Extra! Good thing I tivo'd it because it was so short that if I blinked, I would miss it! It was cute though. I tried to find it on the Extra website so I could post it here, but to no avail. I'll keep checking.

Eric is signed up to go to the FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) basketball camp at UCLA at the end of June. He is so excited about playing in the Pauley Pavilion and staying in the dorms there.

I forgot to tell my family that at Eric's basketball banquet at school, the coach, in his first year of coaching, said that his proudest moment of the season was when they beat Riverview Gardens, which is in a very oppressed part of town, and "the fans" (mostly made up of my family) gave them a standing ovation and congratulated the coach afterwards for a tough, well-played game. Their coach was so appreciative of the handshakes and thoughtful words of encouragement for the challenging job he had of teaching basketball to kids who had more to worry about outside of school than any kid should have. Thank you, family, for being so kind :) It did not go unnoticed.

You know you're getting old when your husband announces that he has big plans that night for the two of you and you are so excited (and relieved) when instead of a night out on the town with another couple, he says you're going to Sam's. Woo hoo!!

I don't know which was funnier, watching little KC chase a big coyote out of our yard or watching Eric, in his bare feet, try to run out there and shoot it with a BB gun.

Just so you know, I've changed my settings so you can leave a comment now without having to write some weird word that you see to verify that you are who you are. I didn't know you could change that, so NOW, not only does it make it easier for you to comment but it also sends me an email of your comment so I won't miss anything you have to say. How special is that?

Here's a "funny":

When I was ill, my husband and I were stuck in the house for months. But I made a complete recovery and was so happy the day he bounded into the kitchen and asked, "Would you like to go out, girl?"

"I'd love to," I replied immediately.

We had a wonderful meal, culminating with my husband making a confession. "Remember when I suggested going out tonight?" he asked.

"Yes," I said.

This video is so cute. Makes me laugh every time I see it...
