Rain, rain everywhere

It first started with school getting rained out last Monday and then it was rain yesterday both here and Saint Louis, so that meant no baseball for anyone. Chad I think was relieved. He was still bummed about Tuesdays game and had a bad day yesterday, so he told me he didn't think he would be able to take whatever outcome. He was emotionally spent. We still went over to Diane's house to wait it out. We all thought that the game was going to be played. During the day I had made Emma and Maddie tigers t-shirts from an iron on transfer on the computer. So then when Chad got home and saw them, he wanted one too. So we ended up making him, Phill, and Kim one too. I didn't get a picture of them all, but I'm sure that I will here some other time this week.

Last weekend Grandma and Aunt Jana came for a visit. They got in on Friday night. We went and got them from the airport. Maddie was putting on a show two minutes after getting them. We went to the pumpkin farm on Saturday. It is actually a Christmas Tree Farm, so it wasn't too big, but enough for Maddie. We then came home to relax and then get ready for Concordia's Dinner Auction. We left Grandma and the girls and headed up to The Woodlands. We had a good time. Chad kept leaving to check the score of the game. Mike also kept texting Jana anytime there was a change in the score. It was a fun night out. Grandma ventured to the playground with Maddie and it sounded like they had a good time. Sunday was church and then something to eat. We then had people over for the game on Sunday night. We just grilled out, grandma made German potatoe salad and an eclair torte. It was kind of comical, because I think that we had to run to the store about 4 times, because we kept forgetting some ingredient. Monday we went to breakfast and then it was off to drop them off at the airport. It was a short visit, but a good one.

The rest of this week has been a blur. Tuesday was parent/teacher conferences, so Chad had a long day. Today he is reffing a scrimmage at girls basketball try-outs, tomrorow is Football, Saturday I am co-hosting a party (at least it is not at our house), there is also a fallball baseball tournament at school, next week is Homecoming, so that means that sometime this weekend Chad will have to go supervise decorating. Then we have just two weeks from today that we will be leaving for Wisconsin. We are hoping that there is no snow, but at least some pretty fall colors. There are none of those here.

We hope that you are keeping warm. It has finally "cooled" off here. It has only been in the 70's with very little humidity. It is suppose to warm up a little, but not too much. We can't wait to see everyone in two weeks. Have a good rest of the week and a good weekend.
