Yesterday and today were very busy days. The girls and I went to our first Hofstra softball game. Dave was at the Duke/Dartmouth lacrosse game for Autism, so he didn't come with us. Thankfully the weather was so nice. They asked Hannah to throw out the first pitch of the game, so she wore her official Hofstra jersey. She was nervous, and must have told me 30 times that she was too scared, but when the time came, she walked right out with the team. She moved up a bit closer to the pitcher, and got one in right over the plate! They announced her name, and that she had been "adopted" through the Friends of Jaclyn Program by the Hofstra girls Softball team.
It was great, and she was so proud of herself. We stayed for the entire first game, which they won 1-0. All of the girls on the team were so welcoming to her, and made her feel very happy to be there. AFter she threw out the pitch, they gave her the ball, which they all signed after the game. We really had a good time. Here are some photos from our day.
Today the girls went with Dave to a friend's son's Eagle Scout Award ceremony. I was home on the couch suffering from this stupid lyme disease still. Hannah has been busy all day (and I mean ALL DAY) baking and making me brunch, appetizers, and now dinner complete with cake for my birthday (which is actually tomorrow.) She had fresh fruit and homemade banana bread for brunch, loaded tacos for appetizer and now a special roasted chicken and asparagus for dinner. All from weight watchers cookbooks, so at least at I won't be fat AND happy for my birthday! Dave just got home from the wake of a lady here in town that died from breast cancer. She was the town attorney, her husband is the president of the Mattituck Chamber of Commerce and they have 4 children, all 7th grade and younger. Stupid cancer.
Enjoy your week!
