Friday night, we were invited to the ribbon-cutting ceremony of the brand new Special Needs ball field at one of our local parks. This was something that Neil and I supported from day 1, so it was so great to see the final product! The field is made especially for any Special Needs children, from wheelchair-bound to autistic. And, we even witnessed the inaugural game! Very cool.
Saturday, we planted our summer garden. I know it doesn't look like much but the veggies
Saturday night was the semi-annual Family Camp Out in our neighborhood. Neil and Sam always attend, and this year I took Luke down for a little while. It was amazing weather so there was a great turnout...around 25 families, and Sam had a ball. (I'm sure Neil enjoyed his beer-by-the-fire-with-friends, too.) Luke and I headed home before bedtime, but I'm thinking that next year would be a great time to introduce him to the air mattress!
And, finally...we have a new pet. Okay. It's really more like an experiment with fur.
I promised Sam (last year) that we would "keep" a caterpillar so he could see it change into a moth, and since we have cherry trees, the tent caterpillars are plentiful. All-in-all, he probably has a much better life in our aquarium b/c many neighbors consider his kind a pest right now.
We named him JJ (John Joseph was Sam's idea?!?). Check him out, pre-wings!
