catching up

It’s been another busy week. I often wonder, did my parents find themselves saying … “Wow, another busy week.” Or was life run at a different pace back then. I honestly don’t remember being shuffled around from one activity to another; I do remember riding my bike through the neighborhood and building piles of leaves. Pretty soon I will remember having to walk to school through snow drifts. But wait! I did walk to school through snow drifts, albeit with shoes on.

On Friday of this past week, Hope had only a half-day of school so we made it a father-daughter day. We went to the USS Midway and took a tour. The Midway is a retired aircraft carrier and is enormous. It’s been relocated to San Diego and turned into a museum by a private foundation. I had my doubts about how long Hope would stay engaged but she outlasted me. I’ll upload the pictures soon.

After that, we meandered down to SeaPort village which just so happens to have a Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream store. After twisting Hope’s arm, we decided to have some ice cream. It was OK.

Saturday was softball and more softball. The girls both love it and have great coaches this year. Hannah is even beginning to slide. During practice last week she did a head-first dive into second base … and it was a planned dive, not a trip and stumble dive. Kind of reminded me of her old man …

And today is Sunday. We get to gather with a great group of people at LifePoint and have a worship celebration. Life is busy but life is good.
