Well, this is kinds of embarrassing...just noticed that we have not posted a blog update since April. Yikes. To be honest, we really havent been doing much of anything..just a lot of sitting around, watching TV, etc. Pretty boring. Yeah right!
Where to even start....
Softball - Maddie played her 4th season of Softball. She has improved a ton year to year. This was the last year in the "development" league so she needs to decide if she wants to move up to 12U and play the real deal. We will see.
Soccer - We were finally able to get Kenzie out on the soccer field this spring. In her first game, what does she do...she scores 3 goals! She went on to score a bunch more over the season, and above all - she had fun! She is excited to keep it rolling in the Fall.
School - The girls wrapped up their school year at Hope. Maddie is now on to 5th grade (wow) and Kenzie moves up to 1st Grade (double wow). They love their school, their friends, the teachers, etc.
Summer - Well, the story here is that it is just now showing up. Where as a lot of the country has suffered from heat waves, the good ole Northwest has been basking in 60 degrees and cloudy. The joke is that summer usually starts on the 5th of July..this year it wasn't until nearly August. The good news is that the forecast is for a stretch of nearly 10 days above 70.
San Lucas - Technically it is Cabo San Lucas but I'm trying to stick with the S theme. Our big summer vacation was with the extended family for 9 days in Cabo. Other than a jaunt across the border to Tijuana back in 1994, this was the first time to Mexico. We stayed at Villa Del Palmar, just a few minutes from Cabo. Bottom line, we had an awesome time. Lots of sun, sand and sillies (wow, the S's are rolling). We look forward to making a return visit sometime.
Seattle Visitors - OK, I'm struggling to keep the S thing going now. We have been lucky to have a number of visitors come on through Seattle as well. Our good friends the Landskovs (minus Jeff) were out in June...and are back again (plus Jeff) now. We miss them since the left to Colorado last summer. Steph's Grandma and Aunt and Uncle just wrapped up a quick trip out for Steph's cousin's wedding. It was a great few days with them. Finally, as we speak, the Lakewood Dynamic Duo of Ben and Lauren are on their Northwest Tour. They are giving Mom and Dad a little break before their new little brother arrives at the end of the month. We always love having visitors, so come on out and visit!
Well, I think that will do it. It's funny how the summers seem to fly by. When we were kids, it felt like they went on and on. As always, we will try our best to stay a bit more current. You can always find us on Facebook or Twitter (http://twitter.com/mjtwit) for "real time" updates.
