Golfin' Buddies

Have you ever sat down to do a little "blog surfing" and been so annoyed to anxiously click on someones blog only to be utterly disappointed when they STILL have the same posting up as the last week...and the week before that (and the week before that, you get the point). Well, that is how I feel everytime I look at my own blog; not a good sign. I have really slacked. I was so on top of it all at the beginning and now I am falling behind, very very behind. So, sorry. I will try harder.

Over the summer I enrolled Andrew in a golf clinic. It was so much fun! Being the overprotective mom that I am and not being overly excited about contact sports for my young boys (what mom wants to see their babies chased down and tackled to the ground?! Yikes!) I am always on the lookout for a new sport that my kids can enjoy. Something that can be fun for them without a lot of pressure. Besides turning the golf clubs into lightsabers, I think we found a winner with golf (tennis and baseball as well). Ground rules have been laid and lightsabers no longer make an appearance so no worries grandmas'.

At the end of the golf clinic, the kids were able to play in their first tournament. Other than it being a million degrees outside and being buzzed by at least a dozen fighter jets (F-15s) it was fantastic!
He looks like a pro, right?! He was loving the driver that day and had some great hits.



Josh and Logan giving it a try.

I love this kid!

I love this one too, even when he scowls at me for "distracting" him.

That grass/dirt is in big trouble, though I think the ball is safe. :)

That is just so cute! I've been thinking of enrolling Corben in that next summer, is it worth it? He says he wants to golf like Daddy! I'm with ya on the contact sports!

Thats great. Kayla and Abbie LOVE golf. We will have to get them out on my golf course at work the next time you guys are out this way. Our girls would love that.

I have been anxiously waiting your new post. I was not disappointed.
What darling pictures. And I should say very "handsome" golfers.

I have to say it creates a great deal of excitement to think of coming to visit you all.
I miss those boys!

Much love.
Grandma Jensen

Mike,

You have no idea how excited the boys would be so go play golf with your girls!

Angie, Yes, I think it is worth the money.

Ramona, we can't wait for you to get here!

OK, your boys look so cute golfing.
I'm still waiting for some good shisa pics and thanks for picking up the shisas. Sorry you had to return your little Shisa. How sad.

Ohhh ... such cute kids!! The golf clinic is definitely worth every penny!! Isaac loved it (just wish we would've had them in together)! :)

Your boys are so sweet ... I can't see them doing contact sports ... definitely baseball, golf, tennis, etc.

You do great, Cathryn, with your blogging. It's tough but you're a very, very busy lady! You have a good balance and that's very important. :)
