It was another whirlwind weekend here … I think they get busier every week from now to June. And then, ahhh, those hazy, lazy days of summer …
We kicked off the weekend with a quick family dinner out at the local diner. Saturday was the Little League parade and kick-off carnival. They had rides, popcorn, cotton candy, a BBQ, and some games for the kids. James ran the barbeque and parade for the Fire Department. (They host it for the Little League. He organizes it every year - what a honey!) And this year for the first time, they had a dunk booth. Two of our gym teachers and one of the little league coaches who is a good friend of ours manned up and went in the dunk tank to raise money to send a child with cancer to summer camp. I’m really happy to report that somewhere in the US will be a very happy camper!
Then we had my son’s first Junior baseball game. (He just graduated from Little League.) My baby is still doing softball, so a few more years of LL. After Jamie’s game James and I had dinner out with two of my favorite people. It was one of those Italian restaurants where they let you sit and chat for hours, even on a Saturday night.
After a lazy Sunday morning, there’s one more baseball game, a school project, and then it really steps up for the next two weeks … I am going to be out six nights in a row this week - I need to soak my feet just thinking about it … Every year I can’t wait for spring and then when it comes we are so busy it’s crazy!
So a little peak at what’s sprouting out around here, and I apologize in advance if this week’s posting is a little sparse!
