1st Volleyball game of the season!

Here are a few shots from last nights Tiger win against Watertown...










My oldest left for college this week...

We took Patrick to St. Thomas on Tuesday. He was hired to be Tommie Ambassador, and was able to move in and set up a few days early.
He was very excited to go and we had a good time setting up his dorm room. I am very proud of Patrick and I am thrilled for him to take this next step in his life. Change is good, but change is hard...I truly enjoy having my kids around, and its hard to realize that things will never be exactly the same. But we look forward to all of his new adventures at St. Thomas!

This photo is one that St. Thomas took to put on the blog website, where Patrick has been hired to keep a blog. Here is a link to his blog if you are interested in following Patrick's first year:

The trip is over... let the games begin!

We got home late last evening from the Florida trip. I think that everyone had a fabulous time.
Back to regular practice today and their first game is tomorrow (Wednesday) at 5:30 in Watertown.
Good luck to them!!
