Sitting in traffic on the # 1 Highway is never any fun. Especially on a gorgeous day that was meant for gardening or anything other type of outdoor activity.
My kids made the best of it. Cayden was testing Jonah in timed math quizzes and Peyton practiced writing her name. Or at least practiced the letters of her name. I'm not sure if she has quite got the concept of putting them in order yet. But whatever kept her amused was fine by me.
Meanwhile, I was enjoying listening to a Mark Clark Podcast about something of interest to stretch my mind just a little bit. The topic of Predestination vs Arminianism was more interesting than I thought and maybe a tad bit controversial for some.
Interestingly, the clouds in the sky caught my attention in a way they never have. I often look up to see if its grey and rainy or clear and sunny. But never does a cloud actually interest me.
This cloud reminded me of one that is often drawn in a good old Archie Comic. Round, fluffy, white and floating freely in the sky. I was so in awe of how beautiful that I had to share my enthusiasm. So I told Peyton to look at the most amazing and beautiful cloud outside!
Her response. 'Mom. That's boring.'
Wow. Was I disappointed by my my little 4 year olds lack of enthusiasm. But then again... I've never really been all that interested either I suppose.

The players sitting around the table enjoying a drink and plate of amazingly tasty wings looks just a little bit different every year. Yeah, I know we get older every year:) But it's not the only thing that changes.
Every season our team loses some great teammates. And every season we gain some new ones. The great thing about becoming a 'Chicks That Kick' team member, is that you never fully get let go of by the team. We have had some amazing women be part of our circle of friends but unfortunately 'life' gets in the way. Some ladies move. Some get hurt. And some simply can no longer juggle the activities of the other family busyness. And that's just the way life is.
So, when we sit around the table with new teammates and old, we often share stories and laugh at all those great memories of times past. Some of those memories include nursing babies on the sidelines, Fireball, speediness of our littles, Kelly and Julie. Cindy's one play, take it right up the middle and score and Cheryl's stories of Sweaty Crotch. Oh there are so many more after 9 years of being a Chicks That Kick.
Our team never 'replaces' a player when they leave the team. We simply 'add' a player. Another newcomer that has different skills and other life experiences to share. And then we make more wonderful memories to share and laugh at.
It's the connecting and meeting of new women that I truly enjoy with our little team. Well, this comes in at a close second to actually playing the game. Best wishes to my past and present Chicks That Kick teammates!

I have a very independant and bright girl on my hands and she knows way too much about electronics. Could be a very good thing. Or... I am in trouble:)
