Way to go Boys!!!

Well - I got the call.....Both of the boys made their AAU teams. It is such a great privilege for them both. They are going to get great coaching and be able to excel at a sport they love. I am sure you will be hearing from us a lot during our adventures in AAU. Go Bombers!!!!!

My Hubbyless Week

Today begins 6 days with out my hubby. He has left for St. Cloud, Minnesota to watch our son Austin at the USA Hockey Festival for 15 year olds. It should be a good time. He is staying with my dad in the hotel while Austin stays in a dorm with his fellow players. Mike will miss Austin's first two games, but will ge to see pratices and the next 2 games he plays. Tonight he is excited to be going to a barbeque with all the Michigan families that are there. He wil get to see many people he has not seen in a while.

I must say I am torn. I am looking forward to having time to myself when the kids go to bed and cathcing up on some reading, scrapbooking, and the like yet I am going to miss him and wish we could all be there together. Such is life!! He will be in touch regularly and is going to have a great time.

AAU tryouts

Tonight was the second round of tryouts for the boys for an AAU Travel baseball team called the Bombers. R.J. tried out for the U12 team and Mikey tried out for the U13 Team. We are really hoping they both make their teams. R.J. has a better shot as there are more open spots on his team. tTey both did great and we are very proud of them for doing their best. We will find out by tomorrow if they made it!!!! Keep your fingers crossed:)

Fun at the Beach

Today was so much fun. it was Mike's day off and so we went to Cape Coral Yacht Club beach for some sun, fun, and a change of scenery.

The kids had fun playing in the water, in the sand, and looking for hermit crabs and conch. They even found a handful of them.

We only stayed for two hours but the time flew by. We are now relaxing at home while Austin and Mike golf. This is our last day all together before Austin goes back to Michigan on Tuesday.

The first pic is Austin with maggie. Second is Maggie. third is all the kids playing in the sand and water. Fourth is a hermit crab - a little blurry but you can sort of see it.

My Meez

I just learned about what a meez was tonight. I thought it was so cute and looked like fun so I went ahead and made one of me.

If you know me well you know this is sooo me. I love to talk on the phone and this was their version of a backyard pool. Ours is not nearly as luxourious but we are there all the time. I was hoping you could do more than one action at a time like talk on the phone, fold laundry, and care for the baby all at once - lol - but no such luck.
