Here we are half way through summer! It’s been a fun one!

We finished off the school year with a/b honor roll for both boys. Taylor did great his first year in high school! He enjoyed it as much as a 15 year old enjoys school! Logan did well in his first year of middle school too. He’s our social butterfly!! 

Logan made the middle school baseball team. Yay!!! He has been looking forward to wearing that school uniform like his daddy!

We left ball tryouts, literally, left the field and headed north! We stopped in Washington DC, Maryland, Philadelphia, and New York. We saw all the monuments, liberty bell, Babe Ruth’s house, Arlington, changing of the guards, the Rocky steps, Hershey Park, Orioles vs Red Sox, Brewers vs. phillies and a nationals vs. cardinals games. Of course, Camden yards and mookies 3 home runs was the high light!!!! 

We made our way to the quaint little town of Cooperstown, Ny. We visited the hall of fame and Logan played ball at Dreams park. It was so cool!!!! Logan even got a HR!!! We learned today that coach Lou, the founder, had a heart attack and died unexpectedly  this week. So very sad, what a great place he made!!! Glad we got to meet him! 

Once home we all returned to our normal summe routine….work, sleep, swimming, napping…you get it!!

Logan got hit by a pitch in the elbow! It immediately swelled up, we were so afraid it was broken, but luckily, it wasn’t!

Taylor slammed his thumb in the car door and had to go get a hole burned in his nail to let the blood out! Then he fell and we again thought we had a broken arm. Dr even thought it was broken, but it was a deep bruise. Always something with boys!!

We have thrown in cross country practice and school baseball practice, driving and a girl friend! 

Camp is coming up for Taylor. Six flags for Logan. Mt. Airy to visit Mayberry for Kim and Guh. Plus, a really cool trip for Logan to play ball in ny again! 

School starts back August 11th.we will stay busy with our new adventure with cross country running. Taylor keeps us busy with driving!!
