Time to put up something else :-)

We’ve been enjoying every single second of summer so far! I’ve got lots of photos I’d like to share . . . but haven’t had time to download them.

In short (or not) . . .

Keira – horse shows, riding in our very own arena out front, playing with the horses and kittens, summer swim team with friends, friends staying over, trip to Breckenridge with a friend. Did I mention horse? She’s having a great summer so far!

Jason – baseball, baseball, hanging out with friends, getting grounded for getting home late, baseball, baseball, learning how to drive a stick shift, volunteering to go on every errand so he can drive the Audi now that he’s figured it out, baseball, baseball. Have I mentioned baseball? He’s FINALLY back on the field and having a last! We’re headed to Phoenix this week for a tournament.

Jodie – work, mom taxi, work, mom taxi, muck stalls with Keira, mom taxi, sort and price items for Boy Scout garage sale, mom taxi, mom taxi, mom taxi. 63 more days of mom taxi before Jason gets his license. I. Can’t. Wait. I might even be more excited than Jason is about it . . . and he’s pretty darn excited!

Dan – work, work, work, watch Keira ride, work, watch Jason play baseball, work work work. Business is good and he’s keeping busy – even hired a couple more people last week!

Jared – wait, what?! Jason’s coach is staying with us for the summer. He’s here from Texas for the summer to coach the team and needed a host family – so we gave him Grandma’s room and the truck’s spot in the garage for the summer. While it’s different having a 24-year old in the house, it’s been great. Shakes things up a bit. AND he gives Jason a ride to the baseball stuff . . . I just have to pick him up. So there’s that added bonus. Very nice kid! He’s only been here a week, but we’re enjoying having him around.

So there you have it – our first 10 days of summer break in a nutshell (Seriouly? Only 10 days?!).

I hope you’re all enjoying summer as much as we are!!!

    So excited to see a new post. Sounds like a blast. Not the taxi stuff. Been there, done that for three.
    Happy to hear the kids are loving the things they are involved in doing.
    I bet it is fun to have someone new in the house. I bet he is spoiled having his own bedroom, bath and wonderful food or maybe he helps cook. I hope Jason is picking his brain or spending time, with him, learning more about baseball.
    My summer has been very boring. Miss working with Real Estate!!
    Driving the Audi!! It bet he is loving every minute of it. He had asked Grandpa if he could put his name and phone number on the side of the convertible, when he drove it here. or so grandpa says.
    Love you all,

  2. Enjoy it… It seems so frustrating (time management struggles) at the time – but you will blink, and the next thing you know – your kids will be 28, 21, and 20 – and you will begin to miss these days a little bit (despite saying you never would)…

    Trust me on this one!

    Oh, and by the way – thanks for being one of my faithful readers all these years! Just how video killed the radio star, social media killed the blogger – and due to numerous recent events – I am taking a long overdue hiatus from the Social Media – and reconnecting with my blog, and my blogging friends – so I wanted to take a moment to thank you for being one of ’em!
