Good morning Ladies! Can you believe it is the last weekend of July? We are on the doorstep of August and the last month of summer . I hope you have managed to have some summer fun . The weather is staying warm and mostly humid with sporadic thunderstorms to cool us down.
Last weekend our softball girls finished their season after being beaten in the nationals tournament Saturday evening. They did great all year ! There were lots of tears and hugs as it will be the last time they will be together on the same team. Some move up to 14 u and some stay in 12 u for next year. They all went bowling on Sunday afternoon to celebrate the season !
We have been busy with our 3 boys also , going to waterparks and the zoo this week. The boys start soccer next month , The two older ones played last year also , but its a first for our 4 year old.
We are hosting our friends Eric and Sarah along with their 2 year old Lucy today. The kids will go swimming in our much used pool while the adults can chat and maybe enjoy a beverage!

Good morning Ladies!! What are you doing this weekend ? We have a softball tournament going on since Thursday, the last one of the summer season called nationals . The Girls qualified for this great event after earlier wins throughout the year. It started on Thursday morning with a game , they lost , and then won their second Thursday afternoon . Then in the evening there was a parade where all the teams dress up !
Our team are the tigers and the girls picked out these full body tiger costumes from the 3 photos above. The only this is it was 95 degrees with a humidity feel of 105!! They persevered and got through it drinking lots of water. I felt bad for the guy in the tiger head . There were many cute teams , I wish I had taken more photos . We played two games Friday won one and lost one. We have our next at 9:30 this morning , phew!!
It has been a warm few days as said earlier, today is supposed to cool a bit.
The rest of the week was quite normal ! I have to get going soon!

Good morning Ladies! Welcome to a sunny Minnesota with temps getting into the 90s or 32-34 celsius for next week, phew! I like some sun but that is getting a little hot for this Irish body! We will stay cool . It was a nice long weekend with the 4th of July on Thursday. Saturday and Sunday were spent pretty much at home.
The monday-Friday was pretty much routine , the kids did a lot of swimming and had their summer activities . Yesterday was a great day for Liam when he finally mastered riding his bike ! He was practicing for so long and then got it! So excited for him .
We have softball this weekend , it is the state tournament . We will see how our girls will do!!

Good morning Ladies ! We have turned the calendar to July and the summer is starting to roll on , as long as it is not too fast , right? Last weekend was taken up with softball ( surprise !) and a visit from my in-laws. Softball was Saturday, our team played 3 games and had to win one to make it to state which they did! It was nice not having it on Sunday ! Most of the Girls on the team came over to our pool in the evening Saturday for swimming and Pizza . It was a great way to cool down after a hot day. They all get along so well.
On Sunday after Church there was a meal and celebration for the Lady who directed pastoral life in our parish for a number of years.(We also went to a local restaurant on Friday for those closer to her) She retired at the end of June. Dottie is truly a woman who knows the meaning of serving God and I can learn from her. She will continue to volunteer in the Church.
The in-laws met us at the celebration at 11.30 am and after we hung out at our house. My mother-in-law celebrated her birthday on the Friday (June 28th) and so in the evening we went to a restaurant close to our house so the kids could also give her a great birthday gift!
On Tuesday our Daughter turned 12 !!!! I am not sure how it is possible but that’s the answer the calculator came up with when we did the math! We had a little celebration at home and she requested ice cream cake from Dairy Queen .
On Independence day July 4th we celebrated with our neighbor and his Daughter , and also his friend who recently moved here from New York with his boy and Girl . We went to a parade in the morning 15 miles away , a tradition we have begun for a number of years. Then we came back and had lunch, swimming to cool down . The guys bought a bunch of fireworks from a stand in our town . They are the kind that don’t leave the ground but were still pretty cool for the kids! Others in the neighborhood crossed state lines to buy the airborne kind , you are not supposed to use those in our state but it is not enforced really.
This weekend is just a time to hangout and enjoy !
