Today after school Jacob and his Nan went on a bit of an adventure, it included an evil dinner out.

Wednesday is Lacrosse day and when we got to the field we were treated by this site. I don’t know about you, but even after those portapotties were set upright I didn’t want to go in them. Though I must admit it was fun seeing a group of 9 and 10 year old girls pushing them back to their vertical position.
Last summer while away at camp Violet discovered tennis, and she really enjoyed it. Ever since we’ve tried to find a way for her to continue playing it, but with our busy schedule, it’s been hard. This last parks and rec session we found a 1 on 1 tennis lesson that mostly worked with our schedule. We had a few weeks that we just couldn’t make it because of other commitments and were even late once or twice trying to switch between activities, but violet loved it and I loved watching her progress each week. Last night was her last class of the session, perhaps its time to get the family some rackets so we can play together.
Tonight I got down to the Rogers Centre for the first time this season. To see the Blue Jays play the Baltimore Orioles. It was quite a game. After each team scored 1 run in the first it stayed that way into the 7th when the Toronto reliever gave up a solo home run. The next inning they had back to back homers stretching the lead to 4-1. Thankfully, in the bottom of the 9th, the Jays bats came alive and they tied the game at 4 forcing extra innings. Unlike the Yankee game Wednesday (A lose in the 13th inning), the Jays won it in the 10th. It was a great game.
The summer is here and that means our Sunday mornings are spent at the lacrosse field. Today we were in Brampton, and for the first time in 3 years of lacrosse, it didn’t rain. Sure it looked like it was going to for most of the morning, but it held off till after Violet’s games were done. The day started out with the team playing really well against a very tough opponent, unfortunately, it ended with 2 loses. Still watching them today you can see the promise of the team, giving me hope for the rest of the season.
