Last  week I left off   with us  after  coming  back  from our  daughters  softball  tournament in Wisconsin.   On Sunday morning  we  went to  church ,  afterwards  we  went  for coffee  and  donuts  to  celebrate  all the  Dads !    We  had a   relaxing   afternoon  and I was  able to follow  my  daughters  softball tournament on an app where one of the  parents  updates   play  by  play   and  score  by score, it is  really cool to have.  They  got to the  Championship  game  and   lost  by one  run  !!   They had  won the  2  previous  tournaments  so  it is  ok to  come  second  sometimes.    Myself  and  the  boys  had  a  nice  dinner .  

  On Monday  afternoon  we   travelled  2.5 hours   to  stay  at a  hotel  before our  sons trap team    event on Tuesday.   It  was a  small  room   but  it  was   cozy.    We  arrived  at  the   event  soon  after  8am .   We  had  to  wait a  few  hours  before  he  was   ready to    go.      they  did   50   then  stopped,  then a  few  hours  later  finished  their  last  50.   Overall he  shot  61 out of  100   which was  pretty good,  but  he  was  hard on  himself  for not  shooting  more !   He  did  great!  We  left  there at  about  5pm   and  stooped  for  dinner   about an hour  from  home.   On Thursday  evening we  had  softball  and  baseball games  to attend!  

Last  night  we  went out on a  double  date with our  friends  Jordan  and  Angie. They  are a  fun  couple  and  it  had  been  about  2  months  since  we  got to  see  them.  We  had    a  lovely time  chatting   , and  catching up.  

 

The Basement  Project  completion !! 

As  promised  last  week I am including pics of our  project , the  bedroom/ bathroom  .  We  still have a  family  room to  complete  at  a  later  date  but  this  was  to give our  daughter  her own  space!  It  started  in the  depths of  winter  and  she  finally moved in  Last Sunday  night  after  getting  back from   softball. The  question was  asked  numerous  times  ” When will my  bedroom  be  finished ? ”    It is finished apart  from the  window  treatments , excuse the  green curtains in the  pics, original to the  house!  20220617_215707

This is the view looking from the family room . You can see the outside is not finished.

The  Bathroom    with  vanity  cabinet   sink  and  linen  cabinet.   We did an  accent  wallpaper  wall.   The  black  wall art  also  acts as a  robe hook   with little pivots to pull out when needed. 

20220617_215845This is the  view then for the  bathroom into the  bedroom. We  wanted to put a  door  joining the  two. 20220617_214246

The  view  from Family  room into the  bedroom, again excuse the  curtains !! 20220617_21425920220617_21431920220617_215615

That  is the  project with  the  closet also . We do have another coat to put on closet doors but that will be  easy   to finish.   I hope you enjoyed it !

When  I  left off  last  Saturday   We  were  going to be  busy  with  a  softball tournament in the  next  town over for our  daughter  .  That indeed  was  the  case They  started off on Saturday  morning  with a  loss  then won their  evening  game.    That set up  Sundays  play nicely .  They  started off with a  big  win  which  brought them to a  semi-final.   They  got a  big  win in that  game , the girls  were on  fire!  It set up a  final against the  team they  were  beaten by on Saturday.  Amazingly ,  having  been  beaten  by  5  runs the day before  the  girls  won the  tournament  with  another  big   win!!  Congratulation  to   them !  It  was  very exciting   for  them to   win it all !   

Ok  so  back to  Saturday ,    during the   games  we   got  to attend  the  graduation  party  for  our  next  door  neighbor  girl  as  she  completes   high  school  and   is off to  college in the  fall. They  had  finished  painting in their  garage  to  have it all  set  to  host  the  party,   It was  a nice  day    and  the  there  was  a  lot of  people  who turned up to honour  her. Well done  Reece !

from earlier this week …

 

Monday   morning  soon came  and  back to the  grind  !    Excitingly  we  passed our  electrical inspection on our  basement  project.   A  step closer  to  completion.  

Our   second  son  stared  an  elimination  diet this week as  he   has   food  allergies.   Certain  food  do not  agree  with him.  He  cannot  have  dairy or  wheat.    He will be on it  for  6  to  8  weeks .   Lets  hope  we   come to  a  solution  for  him  going  forward.   On Thursday  afternoon  we      got our  final  building  inspection  so   our  daughter  can  move  into  her  new   bedroom  as  soon as  we   clean  the  Bathroom  and   bedroom  ,  and  also just  a   bit of  paint  touch up.  Phew.. I am  glad  that project is  99%  done ! I will post  the  finished  pics  next  week !  Our  son  had   baseball  and  they  won  against another  town team  where he  had   schoolmates  and friends  playing against  him ! 

I might  be  sounding like a   broken  record  but  on  Friday  our  daughter   started another  weekend  tournament , this  time in  Menomonie Wisconsin.   It  is  a  1hr  20min  drive. She is spending   the  weekend  at   the  hotel,   while I  am the  parent that  drew  the  boys  to be  with!   Myself and the  boys  went  yesterday to  see  their evening  game .  They also got to  swim  at  an  outdoor  waterpark in  between  games.  We  arrived  back   at 9pm  last night. The  boys  were  ready for  bed  soon  after !

Dress of the week June 11th!

Good morning to you Ladies ! How are you doing today ? It is starting off cloudy here and there will be rain showers on and off throughout the day, I am hoping they are mostly off ! Our next door neighbors eldest daughter graduated high school this year and they are having their grad party today. A lot of it will take place in their garage, which her Parents spent a lot of hours finishing the walls and painting to get ready for the party. But it will be nice for them to have outdoor time too. We are storing some of their garage equipment in ours to give then extra room ! We had mostly sunny days here though this week.

I left off  last  week   with  the  big   event  being our  daughters  softball tournament in the   the  ball  fields  close to our  house.   There  were  teams  from  all over  the   metro  area  at  it and  beyond.    They won  2  out of  3  on the  Friday night.   Then on Saturday  they    went  on a   winning  run  and  got to  the  championship  game !!   They faced  a  strong  Mankato team  who are always  good.   The  game  was  pretty  tense  with  our  team in the  lead  and  then  theirs.   We   needed to get  a  run in the  bottom of the  fifth to  tie the  game.   We  got  that!  In the  6th  we  held   them scoreless  when they  were  batting.  Then our  girls  went on  a  scoring  spree  with 5  runs!  to take the lead!  Mankato  got  one  run  back in the  7th   but  were unable to  catch us   and  the  girls  won the  tournament  to  great excitement!  It  finished  at 10:30 pm  Saturday  night !   Well done  Girls. 

 

Sunday  we  went to  church for the   feast of  Pentecost  ,  commemorating  when the Holy Spirit  descended on the  the  apostles of  Jesus  giving  them  the    courage to  go out and  convert the  people to Christianity.  We did  put down a  green  carpeting  under our  deck in the  afternoon  to  finish off  the  area,  the  grass  does  not  grow  well  there!   On  Monday it  was  back to the  grind  for  me ,  The  kids  were in their   first  full  week of  summer  vacation ! On Monday  night  we  went to  a  local  waterpark as  an early  surprise   for  the Shoutout  below !  We  are  still  chipping  away at  our basement   bedroom/ bathroom  project,  it is  nearly ready for  electrical inspection on Monday ! we  still have  doors to rehang  and  the door  knobs,  also a  few  more  little   items to complete. 

On Thursday  both our  daughter  and second  son   had  ball  games !   Our  daughter  had a  double  header  against a  local team tat  they  won,   and  our  son had  a  single  game  at his  age  level.   They  won the  game,  a  big surprise  was  when  the coach put our  son in to be  the pitcher !   He   tried  very hard  ,  has  a strong  throw,  but  could  be  good  at it with  practice.  It  was  fun to watch him !  

 

Hello Weekend illustration

 

We  have  another  softball tournament  today  and  tomorrow ,  also our  son  on the  trap team  has  practice  for the  state  tournament  in  10  days  time.   We  also  will  try to get to the  party  next  door  !

June 2022 H. S.

Last weekend  was a  long  one in the  U.S.   It was  even longer  for  me  as our  youngest  was  feeling  unwell on the  Thursday  night  and  we  decided to  keep   him  home  from  school  as  a precaution On Friday .   Also on Friday  the  carpet  was  installed  in the    basement  bedroom project  for our  daughter. we also had  the  temporary  bedroom  she is  using , an office on the  ground  level carpeted.  Thanks to our  installer  Oleg , a lovely young man !  On Saturday  morning  I  went  for  a  walk in the  woods  with our  eldest  son. It was a  lovely  nature  walk but it  started  to  rain   during it. so we  cut it  short  . My    phone took in  some  moisture  and I had to go to the  phone store with it.   They were  not able to fix it  and I  had  to  have  a  new one  sent to  me,  it is  why I  have insurance!   In the  afternoon    our   middle  boy had  friends  come over to play.   They    went  swimming in our  still cold to  me   pool!!  They did not  have  any issues.  

Sunday  was   a relaxing   day   with  nothing  pressing on the  agenda.  On the  holiday Monday  we  went  to   watch our  local town  baseball  team in action. They would  be  considered  minor  league  but the standard  was  really good.   It  was a  fun  day out     for  family   and    and  good  food  as  well!

Tuesday  was  back to  reality  ,  but  for our  youngest  2  it  was  the  day they  got  their  summer   vacation.  They  had to  go in  for a  few  hours   and  then were  done !! I  remember  those  carefree   days !   On  Thursday our older  2   finished  for the  year .    There  was  softball and  baseball  games  for our  2  players on Thursday  night . Our  daughter  had  a  game  across the  state  border in Wisconsin,   and our  son  had to  travel a   half hour to his  game. We  had  to  divide  and  conquer  as   parents .  Our  daughters,  team  won  but our  son’s   came up  against a  stronger  team.    Last  night our  daughters  team  played  the  first  3  games in  the local tournament   They won  2  and  lost 1 .  I will update you on the  rest of the  tournament  next  week.
