The Saga

I arrived in San Antonio for work this afternoon. We are here for the ISTE conference which focuses on incorporating technology into education. We had dinner on the River Walk and stumbled upon a large crowd forming, facing an old church. It was an amazing light show that was projected onto the face of the church and set to music. You can read about it more here:

We are at the hospital this morning for an ACTH stimulation test. It measures the level of cortisol the body makes which is a sign for adrenal insufficiency. It was hard getting the IV in but once that part was done it's been smooth sailing. He's been promised a restaurant for lunch when he's done.

Garden Babies

I have my first babies in my garden!  I got it planted later than normal this year so it will be a while before I have any veggies to enjoy. Sugar snap peas are just beginning to emerge and though hard to spot, I have a couple of baby tomatoes forming.

Tournament Softball

We are in he middle of our second tournament softball weekend. We are still getting our feet wet and had a great showing in all three games. We go in to tomorrow as he #5 seed having beat the #3 seed today 10-1 (yeah, it doesn't make sense to me either). Regardless, they have improved so much as a team and Molly caught a line drive and 3 pop flies today!  So proud of her!

Summer Nights

Playing outside after taking a shower used to be one of my favorite things to do in the summer. Molly loves it too!

Uncle Bill

My mom's brother Bill passed away earlier this week. It was relatively unexpected and took us by surprise. I took a quick trip to Iowa for the funeral. It was good to see everybody even if it was for a sad occasion. I will miss Bill's love for the kids and his 4th of July picnics. He loved hosting family and showing the kids a good time.

Summer Break-Two Days In

I organized the pantry....

I ended the day with some wine and a snack...

Maggie curled up on me while watching A Dog's Purpose...


Matthew got frustrated with me that I asked him to do TWO chores yesterday. He told me that he would rather be the parent. I told him that he was welcome to be the parent and then made him a list of the 17 things I did before noon yesterday. I received this text later that day :-)
