Good morning Ladies ! It is starting off with rain showers and rumbles of thunder in the distance . The weather has been on the cooler side , in the high 70s into the early 80s. It is usually warmer in August but I will take it. The grass is looking well! I did not get to post last week. I don’t like missing weeks but I am back !
We had a pretty relaxing weekend gone by. We did a few projects around the house , got the grass cut and generally were able to take it easy. On Sunday we chatted with my Parents and sister who just visited. My sister was at their house dropping off a new iPad I picked up for them ! It works so much better to video chat with! We went to church at a nearby parish for a change. It was a lovely ceremony. We stopped for a late lunch on the way home. Our daughter continues to do well at driving, she is getting better all the time . On Tuesday our oldest son started a new season of flag football . It is a less rough game than regular (American Football) but learning all the skills also. He also had practice on Thursday. We got ready for school this week with supplies and clothes purchased . I am going off on a tangent here, but I would love to see the schools bring in uniforms ! I wore a uniform to school while not the prettiest in fashion sense everyone had the same ! it was a coed school . It was a grey blouse , grey skirt Maroon sweater with Maroon tie . In the cooler months tights were included. In later years it was optional to wear grey pants/trousers. The boys wore the same with grey shirt and Pants . Anyway I can see the value in a uniform !!!
Visitors 2022 part 2 !
I left off last time ending day 2 of our visitors trip. Friday we went out and about seeing some quaint towns in the area . I dropped our daughter off at her softball tournament before that and another parent took her home ! Thank you ! My Sister went to dsw shoe store and got some great bargains and cute sandals ! In the evening we went to the mall of America, it had been 17 years since they had been there( the time we got married!) We walked all around and they got to see all the pretty, and novel stores but did not do much shopping. We had dinner in the mall before coming home. We then had game night ! We introduced them to corn hole or bean bags where the first team to 21 wins. It was so much fun , we played in teams of two.
On Saturday they slept in a bit. They got some breakfast and I then took them to a nice town on the cannon river called Northfield. It is a lovely town with a lot of history and lots of small shops. We came back at about 1pm as we were having a little party get together . My in-laws came along with my brother in-law and his son . Our friends Brandon, Josette and Maddi also joined us. We had a nice l late lunch . The visitors got to peel corn for the first time , a fun experience. We had a lovely chat together and played a few fun games of spoons, played with a deck of cards and giant spoons! We had a few nightcap drinks ! My sister made her Irish coffees so good !! Sunday came quick and their last day with us. We did a bit of chatting after they had packed their bags. Then at 1pm it was time to go to the airport. I dropped them at departures and had an emotional goodbye , until we meet again . It was a fabulous few days and lovely memories made .
