This weekend (6/6)

Brendan's last* two soccer games:

Saturday, June 7 - 12:00 p.m. - Brendan soccer vs. Cleveland United

                            - 3:00 p.m. - Brendan soccer vs. Galaxy FC
That's it, I guess?  Probably some running around, getting ready for both boys' upcoming summer camps.  Maybe boating if I'm lucky.  Realistically, I suspect our boat motor is going to have to be rebuilt.  Again.  It'll likely spend a lovely boating season sitting in the parking lot at Portage Lakes Marine.

* Caveat:  There is a possibility of one more game taking place on Saturday, 6/14.  It's a make-up game from one that was cancelled earlier in the season.  The other team hasn't confirmed yet.

Road Trippin'

Last weekend, Mike and Nate went camping with the Cub Scouts.  They played games, went fishing, did archery, BB guns, and slingshots, got to see Air Bear (the Akron Children's Hospital emergency helicopter), chatted with the boomerang guy, and had a couple of campfires and treats.  He even silk-screened his own t-shirt!  It's adorable.

While they were busy, Brenny and I went on a road trip to the Ohio Caverns.  After his soccer game, we stopped at the gas station for drinks and snacks, and hit the road.  We had so much fun!

Sorry for the crappy cell phone pictures.  It wasn't a very camera-friendly place.  Brendan is still exasperatedly gloating that he was smarter than me and convinced me to change out of my flip flops into sneakers.  Who's the adult in this relationship, again?

Box Top Club

Nathan ended the year with 298 box tops, earning a total of $29.80 for his school!  Thank you to everyone who collected and sent them.  He got to go to a special popsicle party, with extra recess, during the last week of school for being a member of the "Box Top Club."  We really appreciate it. 

Keep saving them - we're already starting our collection for next year!
