Today was a fun day and the rain held off. We went to the driving range (after making many stops to the bank & the steam cleaner place & another bank) and Alarik & Christopher hit a bucket of balls. I think they had fun, however they plowed through the bucket so fast that I guess I will never know. After that, Stephanie entertained a friend and her 2 daughters while our neighbor’s daughter also joined us and before ya know it…we had a full house! But a good lunch and some outside play got the kids all worn out and then we were off to Christopher’s football practice. Tonight he got his helmet & pads and our friend Shayne (who actually played football in school) helped him get his pads in place (Look…my ego isn’t so sensitive that I would let my son run out there and get hurt. I would rather have someone who knows the game pad him up and teach me how to do it than to have me do it and he gets his head knocked off!).
So tomorrow is Alarik’s last day here with us and here’s hoping that next summer we can have Alarik back to visit us again!

Tomorrow…if the rain holds off…we’re gonna try to get to the zoo before Alarik heads home and a little food off the grill if we got the time…(and you & thie girls are invited to the cookout Mandy!)
