Sketchy Thursday

Well it was a bit of a sketchy husband has been gone for training all week and last night the kids thought it would be a good idea to go to the ball field to start getting ready for Pee Wee baseball season. I brought along the tee and set the 3 little kids up in the outfield hitting balls and pitched to my oldest. At this time, I thought everything was going fantastic. Then I brought them in and they got to hit while their big brother fielded the balls. My oldest darling daughter (we use words like spunky and high-strung when discussing her) got extremely upset about something, still not sure what set her off. She really wanted to hit, which she did and does very well, but only walked to the base after hitting. Then she got mad when she would get thrown out.

She really is an angel 95% of the time, it's that other 5% that is the challenge. When it was finally time to leave, she refused to get into the van. She sat in the dugout yelling that she was staying at the field! When we finally got home, she sat in the van by herself for 10 minutes before coming inside. She didn't even want to talk to her dad on the phone when he called. Then this morning she was back to her sweet, happy self. Kids are a joy, aren't they:) Here is a very simple page of her at t-ball last year that I just finished. She ends up being about the only girl who shows up.If you look at the 4th of July page of Luke, you will see it's same sketch, different paper. Kind of a boring page, but a good page is a done page, right?

As for sketchy Thursday, here is the page I did last night based on a sketch from Sketchy Thursdays. They are looking for a guest designer for May and this was the sketch. The page feels like it needed something more, but when I start adding things just to add, I usually end up disappointed with the results. If anyone has any suggestions....

Have a great day - Enjoy!
