2017–week 19

sunday: layla, micah, and dave got to go with my dad to a game in the All Star Club! micah was sad all day that the mariners didn’t win. but at least this year’s game didn’t end with vomit at 11:30pm.003

wednesday: a little extra time before i needed to leave for work and a forecast with no rain was the perfect opportunity for me to throw my daily load on the line.030

also wednesday: i told micah he needed to go outside and do something active in the fresh air instead of playing video games all afternoon… he decided the best thing to do would be to get the biggest shovel he could find and dig a hole in the middle of the yard.034

thursday: we have had this hairy menace for 3 years!! and he’s turned out to be a pretty good dog. 036

also thursday: micah’s game ended in exciting fashion when a HUGE streak of lightning hit not far away, thunder, downpour, and finally hail! 039

monday: layla’s gymnastics awards banquet. she won most improved on her team.

speed pitch and dunking the coach in the dunk tank were just a few of the events. 2017-05-07

wednesday: shane left in the middle of the night to meet his JROTC group at snohomish to head to the airport. they flew out at 6:30 in the morning for 5 days in san diego at camp pendleton. this just seemed really far away. and grown up.013
