Check Out Sammy's Hair!

Good morning, it is Friday,

This has been a doozy of a couple of days around here.  For all of us.  Maybe for Preston the most.  We attended a funeral for a neighbor yesterday (Adessa's grandfather Greg, who lived in our culd-e-sac even longer than we have), our wonderful neighbors (Connor's family) of 18 years are moving today, and we learned of the worst possible news about a classmate of Preston's yesterday (that's all on this one).  And if that's not enough, this is try-out weekend for select soccer.
After yesterday's funeral we had a very nice mini-reunion of sorts.  These kids (more like adults) have not all been together for a few years, yet they spent many a day all together playing in the neighborhood (or destroying the island, as I called it) as little kids.  It was great to see all of them.
The last ping pong match.  Yup, you can see the U-haul in the background loading up.  I love that the kids pulled the ping pong table out into the island for one last game.  Today is the day that all the real moving happens.  Tomorrow we will have a new neighbor.  From what we hear, a young couple expecting their first child?  A new generation of kids for this culd-e-sac.  Never really thought I'd be the old timer...that stuff sneaks up on you quickly.
Last night soccer tryouts.  Not sure what team Preston will end up playing for.  It is kind of rough how they do it, all the teams have tryouts on the same days.  However it works out, Preston will land on his feet.  He is a great kid (young adult) and we couldn't be prouder of him!

See you tomorrow.
