Week three...

...lots going on...

Ryan officially has his driving permit (segment1) so I'm now the passenger and he's the driver!

Football skills camp was last week - other than strict instructions -no jumping, running or twisting- he enjoyed the two days. First day was rain, rain, rain - so they were inside for the first half and then outside for the balance. Friday was sunny and perfect weather for drills.

Week three for me - have some job opportunities unfolding.

Captain Kangaroo! -It's wild kingdom around here- momma and poppa robin decided to nest under the deck and now have 3 babies; the momma doe and her fawn come through the yard every day around 2'ish; I knocked down a softball size bald-faced hornet nest under the deck a week ago; and the chipmunks (more than 6(or 600) I'm certain) are enjoying chasing me from the front garden to the back garden. And they continue to work on destroying the retaining wall by burrowing all over and under - I've lost a number of plants due to disturbed roots. I can't understand why any of them want to be at the house when the wetlands are at their beck and call and about 40 yards away ??

Kisses and sunshine to the family...will summer weather actually stick around for more than a day at a time ?

....things I have been doing in the last few weeks...

Ran the 5K in this race for the second year in a row. Improved my time over last year !

What am I doing this week.... I'm in search of a new job ... and keeping busy with all the duties as treasurer of our football booster club ... and getting caught up on gardening and yard work!

Ryan continues to have positive physical therapy sessions for his knee. He's well on the way to starting a great football season - spending time weight building and strength training. And he's almost done with his driver training - that green permit is on the horizon.

Pete's on sabbatical - spending time in the TC area fly fishing for the "golden bones" on the shorelines. Unfortunately, since Friday the weather has been a bit chilly so the fish have been in deeper waters, reluctant to move inward to the flats for his fishing pleasure!
