I have a ton of pictures to share for today's blog! I'm having a hard time seeing them as my computer monitor died and I am using a very small one from "back in the day" until I get the new one fixed or replaced. OK, glasses are on...lets get started:
My cousin Emily and her husband Sumanth welcomed their daughter Lucy Lark into the world! Huge congratulations! I snagged this picture of Emily and Lucy napping off Facebook, I hope you don't mind...I think it is great!
Science fair weekend at our house. The science fair is on Tuesday and these projects had to be done. I helped Lillie and her friend by taking pictures, they giggled, goofed off, and did an excellent job completing their project.
Hansen had an experiment to do as well. But rather than help, Hansen did this all by himself. In fact, I was at the pool with Maren and Lillie while Hansen just got on task and worked away. Good going Hansen. This plan was better for everyone's blood pressure.
Besides the science projects, Preston had a soccer tournament hosted by the Washington Premier club. Just getting in and out of the parking lot (field) was it's own adventure. Rain had turned this grass field into a mud field. It was like driving in snow.
Today I may have to give the truck a bath. It is covered in mud. The van stayed home...Maren thinks it was because I didn't mind trashing the old pick-up truck, but in reality the van was out of gas and I just didn't want to take the time or the money to fill it up.
Besides, the truck did great. And so did Preston.
The team lost the first game, won the second and third. In their six team division they ended up third. The other bracket may have had it easier, but that is the way tournaments go. Good tournament overall. Preston had an assist the first game and scored all the goals in the second and third games. In this picture he is being chased down field...
OK, you thought you were done with my blog huh? Not quite. Friday Hansen got back from sixth grade camp. He had a great time. He took my little weather proof camera (and is thinking he may keep it, as he used it for his science fair project and has not given it back) and took some great pictures. The following pictures are all taken by Hansen at camp:
Another hiking picture. It rained the whole time they were out camping, but that didn't seem to dampen the kid's spirits any. Yeah, I'm good with the puns.
See you tomorrow.
