Sunday, Happy Sunday

Another super Sunday worth writing about.  Sam’s lacrosse team played their final two games for the summer season today.  Let’s just say that it would have been better to end the season yesterday with the three wins that put us in the number 1 seed versus ending on the two game loss record of today.  But, overall it was a decent season and Sam had fun.  He played well and is improving on his footwork so we can’t complain – just have to figure out ways to motivate him to keep working hard and improving his speed.

The weather couldn’t have been better, not too hot, and absolutely perfect when the sun hid behind the clouds.  After spending the day at the fields, we came home to relax by the pool and enjoy dinner on the porch.  With all of that said, I am posting images from a couple of Sam’s games, an image of one of our purple petunias  noticed at dinner, and an image of Gracie after she accidentally picked a petunia when we were deadheading the plant.

Please note that I don’t love Josh any less than Grace and Sam.  He simply isn’t home from camp yet.  He’s off having a fabulous time with friends and playing the game he loves best.

Enjoy and have a terrific week!

Going for the shot.

Sunday, Happy Sunday!

Sunday, happy Sunday.  After a smoldering tournament in which Josh’s team played well and won the championship, we came home to relax by the pool when a thunderstorm came upon us.  Am I complaining, absolutely not.  The much needed rain was welcomed.  The storm has cleared, the clouds moving East, and our fun evening with friends can go on.  Here are a few photos to recap the day.

Ahhh, the rain!

Oh What a Day!

What a crazy, but wonderful day!  Joshua’s B1 lacrosse team won the league championship in a shut out game today!  He had a great game as did all of his teammates.  I was only able to witness three quarters of the game, but what I saw put them at a 10-0 lead and I knew I could leave knowing it was going to be a win.  The reason I had to leave early was to get Gracie to her dance recital.  She was fabulous – no stage fright in her!  She smiled the entire time on stage and just beamed with joy when Joshua gave her the bouquet of flowers at the end of the recital.  John and Sammy were able to watch Gracie dance, but then had to leave to make it to Sam’s lacrosse match.  He too had a great game and his team won 9-4 to end the season with a winning record.  From all of the fun, I went to a photo shoot just in time for it to storm…needless to say, we rescheduled!  Tonight’s images are of Gracie.   Even though the boys had big days too, this day was really suppose to be about Gracie and her recital so she gets the stage again tonight.  She loves when she’s featured on the blog!
