We have been busy. It all started this past weekend with soccer ending for both kids.
Kendall's last game was exciting. The girls rotated positions and she loved playing goalie. She stopped the ball three times from going into the goal. Pete and I were so proud!

One of the other dads took these pictures of Clayton.

I really like this picture (above) when he's receiving his medal. The smile is so precious.

Sunday we attended a graduation party for the daughter of Pete's boss. The party was for three good friends and it was held at this neat barn just outside of State College. The weather couldn't have been better.

On Monday, I took the kids to Spring Creek Park. Just like the name implies, there is a stream that runs through it and the kids can play in the water and sand. I sat down on a blanket and read while the kids did their thing. We were there four hours. I had my softball game Monday night. I don't think we've won a game this summer, yet. Tuesday was play group at another park. Wednesday, I took the kids to see Madeline at the old theater that has been remodeled. The theater has free movies on Wednesdays at noon in the summer. What a deal! After that,
Kendall went to one of the girl's house who had gone to the movie with us and Clayton and I met the play group at the indoor jungle gym. Then we all decided to go to TGIFriday's for dinner since most of the husbands were out of town or busy. Of course, it helped that kids eat free on Wednesdays at TGIFriday's. :) Thursday I watched a classmate of Kendall's and her brother in the morning and then in the afternoon, another friend came over with her two boys. I watched the boys for a little. They play really well with my kids. And tonight is supposed to be the mom's night out. I might not make it since Pete is running late from his trip to Maryland. Oh well. Won't be the first time I had to miss because of the man.

Oh, one more thing. Kendall wrote on our walk outside with some chalk.

It says "Girl's Rool." You tell 'em, Kendall. Well, that's week #1 of Summer. It's gonna be a busy one.

I love her new haircut!

That grass that they had to play soccer in needed to be cut! I can't believe how long it is!

Sounds like you are going to have a very busy summer and Kendall is right...I love how she wrote that on the sidewalk!

Thought about you yesterday when heard Farrah Fawcett died... remembering how we all used to play Charlie's Angels at recess.
