Crazy busy is the headline of our life right now. Even though it is the beginning of August, fall baseball has started. This week has been practices/scrimmages, all in preparation for Monday's first game. As you know from many of my other posts, I love being involved in my son's baseball team.

Common courtesy at sporting events is a topic that is close to my heart. One of my favorite things to do with my family is attend sporting events, whether it is professional or youth sports.  It is a great way to bond with your spouse, and with your kids.  And a great way to support your favorite team.  For the most part, we always have a great time, and look forward to the next time we can … [Read more...]
