Frequent Request...

"Mom, can I have a cooking mitt so I can play 'magination baseball?"

Michael's baseball obsession continues. Sometimes while he's watching a game and sometimes purely in his imagination, he will act out the action on the ball field in our living room. When his glove is not nearby, he asks to borrow an oven mitt as a stand-in. And yes, he calls it "'magination" baseball.

Ah, Internets...

It is time to blow the cobwebs out of the corners here at Midwest Mom. I thought I would just blink the lights and let you know that we are here, all is well, etc.

Are people even blogging anymore? Seems sort of old-timey, what with all the kids on Twitter and who knows what else these days.

Harper's summer began May 23, but mine did not start until June 13. So here it is the 4th of July and I feel like I'm just now un-clinching from the crazy school year we had.

It has rained all day here. We had the in-laws over for dinner. Matt was a trooper and grilled in the rain. Then we played cards and everyone went to bed early.

How are you?
