1 Hotel Room, 2 Beds... & Just the 7 of Us

Happy Thursday! Hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July! We did, although I came down with a nasty cold but am feeling tons better now. On the 3rd, we went to a friend's house to watch the fireworks from Ag Park. The little ones liked them pretty well...Emma had her hands covering her ears the whole time so Abbie had to do the same thing. On the 4th, Shawn took the girls and John and Tommie to Omaha to spend the night as John's Mariner's team played in the state baseball tournament. Joey and I stayed behind and had a great supper at my sister's house. It was really strange being in the house with one child -- Joey and I enjoyed ourselves. On Saturday, we joined the rest of the family in Omaha. It was interesting having all of us trying to sleep in the same room, but we found a place for everybody. On Sunday, John's team played at 8a.m. and won, 12:30p.m. and won, finding themselves in the State Championship game at 2:30. It was a great game, and we all felt in our hearts that they were going to win, but unfortunately they lost in extra innings 3-2. They boys gave it their all, and we are really proud of them. This was their last game together as Mariner's, so they really wanted to go out with a State Championship title. It was an emotional experience for all of us involved because the kids have been together for so long. 2nd place is excellent too and the b

oys have worked really hard. Anyway, now our weekends are free for a little while -- maybe we can get caught up on all of the things that have been neglected around here all summer. John will be 15 on the 29th, and he is anxious to get his learner's permit test

taken. I don't know if I am ready for him to be driving or not, but I guess I will find

out. School will start in about 5 weeks, I am having a tough time with how fast the summer is going. Seems like school just got out, and now we have to think about getting ready for it again. 4 of the 5 will be

going off to school, two preschoolers, one in middle school, and one in high school. Will we survive? Stay tuned to find out!
