GAA Softball News for Team Fuel

Welcome to the Fuel team's document resource page.  Please find your practice and game schedule as well as other GAA documents below.  I handed these out at our first practice on Thursday, March 15.  

Schedule (for printing), more schedule stuff is below

Names of Girls on our team:

Rose Arnold
Clarice Arnold
Sarah Benfield
Jae'Coria Ervin
Madison Brackman
Monique Delagey
Camilla Garner
Zyon Richardson
Emora Snipes
Autumn Strouse

Special items to note 

Girls and coaches are to use cell phones as little as possible during practice and games.  

Also, please note that the girls should not wear Soffee shorts.

If you are interested in helping at practice, please feel free to do so.  We need some base runners to begin some situational play drills!  :)

The GAA also needs concession stand volunteers.

If you want a team shirt (for a non-player lsibling or adult family member), please let me know your size as soon as possible.  The GAA will order these at $15 per adult and $10 per child size.  (All players' shirts are included in your registration fee.)  This is a great way to help the GAA raise money for our league.

Thank you for your help and great attitudes.  Coach Steve and I are looking forward to this season with your outstanding girls.

Spring 2017

Just some scenes from around our yard this spring.  The words below are from the hymn "Immortal, Invisible.'

To all life Thou givest, to both great and small;

In all life Thou livest, the true life of all;

We blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,

And wither and perish, but nought changeth Thee.

Great Father of Glory, pure Father of Light
Thine angels adore Thee, all veiling their sight;
All laud we would render, O help us to see:
’Tis only the splendor of light hideth Thee.

Happy 6th Birthday, Alex!

We can't believe that Alex turned 6 years old on May 11, 2017.

At School

He really wanted me to paint the Spirit Rock at the NCLA.  
Even the high school kids could see it!

The kindergarten class was ready for Steve's card magic.

The class wanted to see the magic up close.

Steve selected a volunteer (in paleontologist hat) from the crowd.

The concentration is intense.

Alex gave Mariana a ring during recess.  He said he is going to marry her.

Alex also gave Braelynn a ring at recess.  Alex said he will also marry her.

I led the kids in a bookmark-making art activity.  
They learned to draw dogs and cats using basic shapes.

They are hard at work.

Alex's table of friends with their bookmarks

Alex and his teacher, Mrs. French

Alex and Mrs. Logan (a few days later)

Puppies are ovals and circles and kittens are circles and triangles.

At Home

The Weekend = More Partying

Julie with Alex.  (What is Clarice doing in Granddad's pickup?)

Kim and Alex

Mother's Day

Steve's family and my Mom and Chuck on Mother's Day at our church.
You can see Alex's first lost tooth.

Update on #the100DayProject

Just wanted you show you my progress for #the100DayProject happening on Instagram and Twitter.

Day 12: Painted a landscape on a 1" wood round with acrylic paints.  You can see the tiny hole in the top so we can hang this up later.

Day 11:  Easter Bunny on the brain!

Day 10:  classic Endearing Young Charm - handpainted flower in a bottlecap pendant

Day 9: #SaveTheBees

Day 8:  "Etched" flowers, handpainted

Day 7:  Baby penguins make everyone happy.

Day 6: 3-D roses

Day 5:  whimsical flower trio

Day 4:  Indian Blanket flowers

Day 3:  Yellow Daisy

I love how this project allows you to experiment with different media, take chances and then reflect later on whether you accomplished the desired effect.  We will see if I get anywhere near achieving my goals for this project.

I hope you are enjoying finding other projects on Twitter and Instagram, also.  Remember to look for the hashtag #the100dayproject to search easily for artists' work.
