Our New Address

TCGC.  Before Junior Golf are Tennis Lessons, then Swim Lessons, then SNAG Golf for Lucy.  Between the Nitrates (hot dogs), Alcohol (Chard) and the Chlorine, I have really pickled myself this summer.  And developing the sun wrinkles to prove I've been a good observer.  Now I just need to start smoking and I'll officially be turning 65 on my next Birthday.  Here's to that Social Security check coming early I guess.
In more uplifting news, Lucy learned to swim swim this last week.  She beats every little pool snot that wants to race her...without using her arms.  I hear from her swim coach that if she ever does learn to use her arms, she'll be ready for level 2 with the big kids.  Next year I might even be able to bring a book to the pool.  Nice.

Feels like from May to August we celebrate until we bleed frosting and sweat whipped cream.  Today was our last celebration of the summer...one with Henry's Kindergarten class and his pal Jack (who share a birthday week).  We've got a whole 9 months to recover now.  Happy Day all you summer babies.

I miss the beach house already.

Spring Cleaning

One of my goals for the spring was to have a nice lawn to play on by the 4th of July.  Both the before pictures are pretty lame as I only remembered to take them after finishing the areas halfway.  Imagine the area to the right of the shed overgrown with blackberries and sloping into the bluff and the lawn with 7 trees removed by me before we brought in the 15 yards of fresh topsoil you see in the before picture.  This was a big undertaking, but it's done.  Check!
