Last Friday was a good day. And even though it was a really long week (Bennett was traveling for work in Buffal0), Sheff and I made the most of it. We had a pasta date night one night, baseball practice for 90 minutes Wednesday followed by Wendy’s, and then we Door Dashed some Mexican food on Thursday and crashed on the big comfy couch and watched Monsters University. I was certainly glad to see Friday – getting the kid ready for camp is essentially another job – so we celebrated by going to the Summer Reading kick-off party at the Hoover Library. They did such a good job – Sheffield loved it! The theme was Oceans of Possibility – and they had a ton of stations for crafts and fun things to do. I was really impressed – we’ll definitely be doing that for the next few summers. After the event, we picked up a pizza and watched Bobs Burgers in bed. I let him fall asleep in our bed that night, and it was so sweet.
Our Saturday started bright and early with a Yanks baseball game. It was close, but they pulled it out and got the win. They ended the season undefeated. So it’s onto the playoffs for the team – and to be honest, I’m really sad that this team will be dismantled next year. Kids moving up, changing leagues. The moms decided to put together an end of season party after championship Saturday – no matter the outcome, because an undefeated season is nothing to sneeze at. I’m so proud of Sheff and those kids. Sheffield loves it – we’ve signed him up for a baseball camp that’s supposed to really work on his skills, so hopefully we can see a big improvement before signing up for fall ball.
We had friends over that afternoon to sit on the porch and just hang out. We ordered pizza again for dinner, played name that tune, and made ice cream sundaes for the kids.
Sunday was spent getting the outside cleaned up and lounging around. We had dinner outside, and called it an early night.
It was a good weekend. We’ve got a bye weekend for baseball this weekend since the Yanks are the #1 seed – so maybe we can bust out the kayak and turn off the phones and enjoy a quiet weekend. Here’s to hoping!!
