I will start with a "Happy Birthday" to Russ...today was his day. We had a nice family day and spent the day around the house!
TJ had two soccer games this weekend....making up for no games last weekend. They tied their game yesterday and won today. According to Russ who took the pictures today, TJ was on fire. He played goal first half and scored 3 goals second half(one called off sides), they won 4 to 1. TJ seems so grown up to me lately...it is kind of scary. I remember a friend of mine telling me when her daughter was in 8th grade that in 4 years her daughter would be "gone", starting college and her own life....well that 8th grader just graduated high school and is on her way. I can't help but think how fast the next five years will go with TJ. Am I that old? Can it go that fast? I do believe time seems to pass faster the older I get.
Friday night we celebrated my Mom's and Russ's Birthday.....dinner, cake, and gifts. Saturday, we celebrated with Russ's Mom....more dinner, more cake, and more gifts. I am so thankful my kids have the opportunity to spend time with their grandparents. I was able to spend a lot of time with my grandparents growing up and I cherish those memories, I hope my kids will too.
As I have said before, Russ's Dad seeds me tomatoes every year. This year was no different. Russ's Mom brought them with her this weekend and I planted them yesterday. I was given a huge variety and I can't wait to see how they do. I have the smallest of small...currant tomatoes all the way up to the whopper and beefsteak. I will get some pictures this week, at the end of the summer we can see what the garden looked like start to finish!
School ends Wednesday....did I say, "School Ends!". I am not ready, no food, no plans, no ideas....I have less than 72 hours to get it all together!
This week is a big DMB week for all of us fans....Dave on Fuse Monday, new album Tuesday, and the Today Show Friday. According to my "ticker" on the bottom of my sidebar I have a little over a month until the big day! How time flies.....it seems like yesterday Russ and I sat at the concert last year. Summer is almost here, I hope I can make it!
Have a great week!
