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 !
