The Usual.

Good afternoon, it is Wednesday.

The temps are finally coming down from a very warm weekend. Friday through Sunday saw temps in the low 90s! So what did we do to beat the heat? Just the usual.
Hansen and I spent the heat of both Saturday and Sunday at the state target championships. A full field of archers shot a couple of 900 rounds in 90+ weather.
Hansen shooting with a couple of friends.
By the end of the second day, Hansen had won the youth bowhunter freestyle division. And set a new Washington State record! Way to go Hansen. I shot pretty OK myself, but it was a very long couple of days shooting in the heat.
Saturday night Maren and I were lucky enough to get to go see the Tacoma Rainiers (Seattle Mariners AAA team) break out of a 7 game loosing streak. Of course, the best part of the best inning of the game was when I was out buying popcorn and beverages.
 Lillie had a tennis match. She has another week of her first ever tennis season. I'd say Tennis has been a huge success for Lillie.
Just because it is in the 90s, doesn't mean you can't get out the hair dryer to make melting crayon art! Right Lillie? Right.
Pretty cool melted crayon art. That is, if you don't want to actually color with these crayons ever again.
Here is another way to beat the heat. Preston, Lillie, and I out for an ice-cream break while visiting the local music store.
Speaking music, here Preston's friend Carson is teaching Lillie's first ever trombone lesson. A couple more of these lessons and Lillie will be an expert trombonist I'm sure.

See you tomorrow.

Trombone! Wow! Lillie is really adding to her accomplishments. Congrats to Hansen on setting a state record. Going to the Rainiers game looks like fun. We always enjoyed going to the Eugene Emeralds games in Eugene.

Hansen is the winningest archer I've ever known! The usual is pretty darn awesome.
