Concentrate and ask again.

Good morning, it is Tuesday.

We made it through the long weekend in style. Last night we had a small BBQ in the back yard followed by a fire pit. Hansen brought home a little sand from the beach last week, so last night I cut a pop can in half and put some sand in it. It went directly in the middle of the fire...Hansen is trying to make glass. After school today we will dig out the can and see what happened.

Here are a few pics from yesterday:

Preston's team finished regular time in the finals with a 2-2 tie. They then went on to loose the game in penalty kicks. They did get a medal, and Preston was the kid introducing each of his teammates as they got their medals.

Preston went first in the PK shoot out. He made his goal and came back to mid field to get congrats by his teammates.

This shot is during the game, Preston taking a free kick. I should have gotten a wider shot so you could see the rest of the team on the right crashing the goal.

I also took down the tent and put it away in the garage. While I had Maren's car out, I brought the Halloween boxes down. Lillie was a very happy camper.

It's never too early to start trying on ideas for Halloween, is it?

Well, according to Hansen's new Magic 8 ball...it is decidedly so. Hansen has had way too much fun with his magic 8 ball. Last night Hansen was asking questions like, "Should Preston reach over the edge of the couch and punch me?"..."Without a doubt."..."NOOO!"...Thump. I would recommend Hansen ask more, uh, life preserving questions.

See you tomorrow.

I love those magic 8 balls! How cool that they still make them and Hansen is enjoying his.
