Good morning, it is Monday.

What a nice weekend! My health is starting to come around. My voice is almost back and I only have occasional coughing fits, so I've rounded the corner into the living corner. Yay.

We have had it all from soccer to skating this weekend. Preston has guest played for a local team who is in a big tournament (his team didn't qualify for) and has played great. Of course tryouts for all the teams are next weekend and the team he guested on wants him to join. The problem is it that they are kind of arch rivals with his current team, only they are actually better. Preston fit into the team nicely, scored a couple of big goals and played well. He is thinking it may be time for a change, but he is worried about loosing friends and such. We have been mulling the whole thing over and soon enough it will be a done deal....either way. Yesterday he got to hang out at Emerald Downs with his girlfriend and her family.

The rest of us went rollerskating! Actually Lillie went rollerskating for a friend's birthday. Afterwards it was home

Hansen spraying the chairs as we clean off the patio furniture for outside dining! Why is he spraying in the sky? Hmm.

This is a picture of our island trees. If you look close enough, and towards the top of the big tree, you will see a little brighter green patch. That is Lillie! Yes, she and her friends like to take turns climbing way too high in trees these days. Groan.

And finally Hansen and his new roommate. Maren got this cut-out from a convention drawing or something. It is hanging out here for now, but will probably end up at the school library when we are ready to part ways.

See you tomorrow.
