Andy has been working from home most of this week because some work is being done on the parking lot area where he works. He and the kids have been to the pool, rode their bikes to Mugs Up for lunch, and just generally had fun times together.
I have the privilege of going to work every day with some of the best. They are not only my colleagues, but my friends. Today, I got to watch Kurtis complete his doctoral degree. I actually remember the first time I met him five years ago. He cracked a joke that only I found funny. I laughed so hard and everyone looked at me like I was crazy. Since that time, I have come to very much respect the person he is. He gets my sense of humor; he always makes me laugh; and he is always honest with me. Congratulations to Dr. Woo! You are one of the best!
It may not look like much, but what you don’t see is the three hours of a house to myself. Wine, pizza rolls, and quiet are a little piece of Heaven.
The MKT Trail has some pretty significant damage due to all the flooding. It is going to take some hard work to get it opened again. Please let it stop raining so repair work can begin. I love this trail!
I knew this kid was good for something!
The Mid-MO Stars went 1-1 today in an abbreviated tournament. However, John had a tough day on the field. He was lifeless through the first game and sat the bench for an inning. He bounced back in the second game, but he was not the same John that we have seen in the last month. Everyone has these days, but they are especially hard to watch as a parent. You want your kid to play well, and it is so hard when they just can’t seem to get it together for more than one out. I know it happens. I had these days when I was playing volleyball too. It is a whole different world when you are watching and you can’t do anything about it.
This is what a baseball team does when fields are too wet to play.
Laura is never allowed to come to a tournament weekend again. This would be the second time she has come that games were rained out. I am only half joking…
