Sunday, April 11

just a quick hello …


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!
