Today officially kicks-off summer! Many will have friends and family over for cook-outs, pools are open and all of us ladies can legitimately wear white pants, shoes and carry white handbags – woohoo!
The 6th annual Ray Miller All American Soap Box Derby is next Saturday! Wow, really? Oh my – so this means getting weighed in (Chase and car can only weigh 230 lbs) then running through a very thorough inspection…. prepping the wheels then getting impounded until about 5:00 am June 5th.
For the next three Fridays Ronnie and I will both be off, woohoo! So, this week we got mulch,
had an afternoon snack,
picked some peonies
then enjoyed an evening out (but not before enjoying a nice bottle of wine).
Even though the next few weeks are jam packed with activities, we’re looking forward to some three day weekends…yay us!
So….this member of our family was very patient ALL day long yesterday, cheering her brother and his team on.We had promised to take her to Dulles Town Center shopping but that never happened so…..today we ‘skipped’ church (I know, pathetic) and headed back to Sterling. Chase was excited to hit “Dick’s” in search of a new catcher’s glove and big barrel bat.Cierra got a lot of cute clothes and Chase eventually caught up with us to get some shorts. I gave them a 2 hour time limit but that didn’t work out 🙂 5 hours later we were leaving the Mall but not before stopping here….yum, yum, YUM!On the way home, we stopped on top the mountain. During my past few flights home we have flown right over our house, the Charles Town Races and I’ve been able to see the road they are cutting right through the mountain. This isn’t the best picture but it really is amazing how very soon our by-pass will be connected and go right up and over the mountain. Wow.Another busy week ahead……rain in the forecast though 😦
Yesterday was a beautiful day! Sunny, lo humidity and mid 70’s – perfect baseball weather and it’s a good thing since the Pinnacles had THREE games to play.
for a 9:00 game. We struggled a bit with this team but overall played pretty good. The team we played was what’s considered a ‘major’ team while the Pinnacles are AA. Final score 7-2.
Chase caught all three games so was pretty tired by the end of the day. He got in a run down which always gets me stressed out (sigh); ended up out but he gave it a good try…Really, how many from the Red team does it take to get him out, ha!
Unfortunately we didn’t make it to church today although I was sure to read my daily scripture…..I really do have so much to be thankful for 😉
I stumbled upon a “Mom” book on Friday while ‘killing’ time in the airport. I didn’t buy it for my Mom, or Ashley nor any other Mom; I bought it for me.
I have spent the majority of the past two weeks on the road. Alone. Working. It doesn’t typically work out that I’m gone that long but for some reason everything was scheduled close together.
But….Kayden and I sat in the car where it was nice and warm without dust blowing all around us! It was nice spending some time with her today….it’s been too long.
Chase and Cierra have friends over and we’re watching the race. Tomorrow is MOTHER’s DAY! I hope all the Moms out there have a wonderful day!!
