Are you jumping on or off?

I have to say that I think I am neither. I wouldn't call myself a bandwagon fan and I don't think I ever will be. Okay, so the Brewers have lost three in a row, but so what right? Now you are going to have all these people who are going to jump off the bandwagon because they have lost a few games. Then they get hot again and people are going to be jumping back on. It is just a never ending cycle. It is that that gets me fired up. I know that I can only catch a few games a year, but I still watch them on WGN/TBS or, but what about those people who don't even turn them on and they live in Milwaukee. Maybe I am a dork, but every year I go through the Cubs and Braves schedules to see when I can catch them on those stations. There is just so much going with the Brewers right now that it is making my head spin. I don't know if it is happening to anyone else, but that is how I feel.

I did read a good article on about Brewers fans and how fans who are fans no matter what are having a tough time getting on board because we don't want to be disappointed again. I will say that no matter what happens this year, I don't think I will be disappointed. These last two months have been a whole lot of fun and that is worth it.

Enough on Brewers news here is some Texas news:

The girls are doing great. Emma is walking more and more and crawling less and less. I would say it is about 85% walking and 15% crawling. Maddie is talking more and more, it is still not all that much, but more than even a month ago. We have been trying to stay out of the heat, but we do like to go in the pool in the driveway.

This past weekend grandma heff, grandpa heff, and aunt Jana were here. They got in on Friday and we just hung out on Friday. We did go looking for a Wii for Mike, but couldn't find one. He ended up getting one on Saturday morning at Best Buy. That night we grilled out and just talked. Saturday morning we got our things together and headed down to Galveston. It took a little more than an hour to get there, but it wasn't a bad ride at all. We walked along the Strand and through the Wild Game cook off. Grandma, Jana, and Chad wanted seafood, so we went to get some lunch. They got their seafood and grandpa and I ate chicken. Then the girls were ready for their nap, Maddie actually fell asleep at the table at lunch. (See the pictures above) We drove down Seawall Blvd. and looked at the Gulf from the car. We headed home and played outside in the pool. Once the girls went to bed, we even managed to get a game of Phase 10 in. Sunday was church and then we had the Wilke's and Steve over to watch the Tigers game on ESPN. So grandma didn't have to cook, we had a finger food dinner. Monday, Chad headed to school. We got stuff together. Went to lunch then to Garden Ridge. Jana and I got some stuff there. I need to go back with no kids, because I need to be able to roam in that store. We headed to the airport and then to school to drop some stuff off for the sports banquet that night. We had a fun weekend with them here and can't wait to see them when we get to Wisconsin in a little over a month.

This week is "dead" week at school. The week before finals. That means everything needs to get done this week. Saturday we are going to the Zoo, Chad hasn't been there. Then next week are finals, graduation parties, graduation, then end of the year meetings, and then summer officially can begin.
