A glimpse at our family calendar would tell you that this last weekend was the busiest of all the weekends in the summer. But we made it...with lots of help. And by skipping things. I really just wish July had more weekends! I love July. I could live in July forever...in Seattle. I don't think I ever want to vacation in July if it means leaving the PNW. Winter months? I'm OK with leaving. Back to my blog. I took Hansen to Bownanza, the biggest archery tournament of the year for our archery club! Preston went to Oregon with his soccer team. Lillie got to spend the weekend at Nana's house while parting at the lake with relatives for a graduation party. Maren got to hold down the fort. I would have loved to be in Oregon for the soccer, at the lake for the graduation party, at the pickleball tournament that I have played in for the last three years, or even hanging out at home. But since you can't be at more than one place at a time, I got to have a great weekend at Bownanza with Hansen. Picture time...and there may be a lot (they are not all archery, so don't give up hope...sadly no soccer though):
This is a guy and his son we shot with both days. And a spinning zombie target. Most of the targets were 3D animal targets, but I liked the creative ones the most. And the dinosaurs.
Next topic. Lillie! Lillie got to spend Friday through Sunday with Carol and John. She wanted do some sewing, boating, and partying. And she did!
Preston's team had a mixed tournament overall...some good and some bad. They lost a couple of games, and won a couple of games. They didn't get to move to the playoffs because only one team moved up, and it was one of the teams that beat them. Preston reports that he made a couple of amazing goals in game three. Preston will probably sleep till the afternoon today as he didn't get much sleep in Oregon due to his roommate being on concussion watch all Saturday night. One of his teammates went down so hard (in game two) that he separated/sprained his shoulder and got a concussion. Teams and doctors take concussions very seriously, his teammate/roommate spent some time in the hospital, then once released had to be woken up every two hours through out the night to make sure he was doing well. Preston reports that his teammate is recovering nicely.
That's enough for one blog post. See you tomorrow.
