I was thinking that it was the first official day of summer, but that really doesn't happen for a couple of weeks. Because school is out, I would consider this the first official day of summer. For this first day of school I painted downstairs and went back to my classroom to work on homework for class tomorrow. I still have 6 more days of my math endorsement. I have learned many things from this class, but I will be certainly glad it's finished. This next school year I hope to be able to relax a little and do the regular classroom teacher stuff. No more math class and no more HP grant.
I have been downloading some pictures that we have taken over the last few months and finally downloaded pictures Lindsey took in New York last Thanksgiving. We need to let her choose a few and upload them with some captions she would write.
Considering that Jen told you about our latest addition to the family we ought to load some pictures of Max. He is a fun cat to watch. He loves to play with strings, shoelaces, jump ropes, etc. He is also fun to watch as he plays in the tree in our front yard. He also likes to sit on the front driver's side tire and relax.
Nathan will be playing the last four games of his season in the next two weeks. He has done very well. He has played catcher most of the season. Last year he didn't like it very much, but he has loved it this year. He has been able to get a couple of runners out after a couple of pitches got behind him. He has learned to toss the ball and look at the same time hoping that the pitcher is there to get the toss. He doesn't listen to his coach very well. I was coaching third and I told him to run home on a pass ball. It wasn't even 10 seconds later he was walking to the dugout after stealing home.
I have really enjoyed coaching this team. I am glad that I have had the opportunity to do it. I have had a great support group to help me. We are hoping to finish the season well.
Of course Ashley is very excited to go to California. She gets to go see Wall E before the rest of the world gets to see it. Julie has told there is another surprise, but she won't tell her. Ashley has asked me a few times if know what the surprise is. Ashley doesn't know that I know. If she reads this blog she will know, but that's ok. Have a good time Ashley.
Lindsey gets a week off before she starts doing the band thing. They start parade season and not too long after that they start learning their show for the upcoming season.
Maggey and Abbey are happy to be able to play outside in the water and ride bikes. They spent most of the day doing those two things.
