Week 26 and just like that half the year is over! We have packed in so much the first half and I can’t wait to see what the next half has ahead of us. I am looking forward to a little downtime the rest of the summer.
Am I the only one who does this?? I don’t know why but stopping for gas is just such an inconvenience to me (as if running out would not be) and I always push it to the very last mile before I fill up.
There is no personal space with this boy. After being gone for a week he has barely let me out of his sight!
(NOTE….it should read shut up but evidently autocorrect recognizes the inappropriate word)
Riley moved all his stuff home from Fort Worth on Monday and we loved having him home for the week. He is always entertaining and evidently Dutch was trying to make sure he knew who was boss at home now!
Poor Dillon has grown so much this year and all of his clothes were too small so we had a little shopping spree. I wish I had a picture of him and how excited he was when we finally made it to Hollister. He was so adorable trying on clothes and coming out to show me….A-dorable. He has grown up way too fast and it really seems like just yesterday that I was shopping at Hollister with Jordan and Riley.
I also had a great girls night out with my friends Holly, Amanda and Sarah! We were obviously too busy talking and taking a picture never even occurred to us.
As most of you already know Friday was a special day for our family. Riley signed his contract and officially became part of the Astros organization. It was really just surreal and I was so happy we were all able to be there with him. He left the next day and will start his career with the Quad Cities River Bandits in Iowa.
Look y’all we really do have more going on than baseball! Saturday we were back in College Station to watch Dillon’s 7 on 7 team compete in the state tourney.
One of Dillon’s good friend from Austin actually came to town for the same 7 on 7 tourney and was able to stay the rest of the weekend with us so Keith took them for some fishing.
Don’t be jealous but while they were gone I decided to go through my “junk” drawers. I had been shoving paperwork and pretty much anything else I couldn’t deal with immediately this past few weeks into the drawers to keep the counter clean. Sure felt good to have everything find a home today.
Watermelon is one of my very favorite things about summer!
And these girls definitely felt the same way! Between the 3 of us we ate half a watermelon.
We had a nice little thunderstorm Sunday afternoon which was the perfect chance to catch up (read cram) for Sunday night Seamless bible study. This is a good one y’all so if you are looking for one I would highly recommend it. My friends Katy and Cindy have done an excellent job leading us!
Back to the grind in the morning! Have a great week!
