From there it was onto J Smooth's football game. It is alot of fun watching the young teams and their varying skill levels. Some know exactly what to do, while others are content to just trot about the field looking at blades of grass. JSmooth's team lost, but he had no clue. He enjoyed himself and that is what really matters.
While J Smooth was playing football, Bama had an all day tennis tournament. After J Smooth was finished with his game, Big Daddy and I turned over the two younger children to head with grandma to a school carnival . By the time Big Daddy and I got to Bama had played one singles match and won, and was begging to play doubles. He and his partner played great, winning the doubles for their seed. Immediately after that match Bama was called to play another singles, in which he won. His team swept, winning in both singles and doubles in all players. Yeah! I am so proud of these boys. I love them as my own. They are a great group of guys that have bonded and really work as a team. I was delighted that they won.
By the time I got home to my computer (well after 5), I had gotten an email from my blogger friend, Charnita telling me that she and her daughter had found the gnome. Shucks! But at the same time, I was happy that they had found it. I know her daughter was delighted to participate in the hunt, and to find it must have made her day. I know the gnome has a good home at Charnita's. She is such a sweetheart. She has already fed the little gnome a meal that he was sure to love. I am certina he will not stray from her house. To read more of the gnome recovery visit Charnita or to see the clues and see the blog who thought of this ingenious idea and the relation of gnomes to my little hometown of Helena, visit Hewy.
Congratulations, Charnita, on a well hunted venture! And congrats to everyone, who had a winning day!
