No time for losers...

Hey batter, batter...

swing batter, batter.

Good running form thanks to Turbofire.

Look Davis I got on base!

'cause the grownups are the champions OF THE WORLD!!!!! After numerous rain delays this afternoon the Gruffs' grownups beat the Gruff players 12-10. Yours truly got an RBI, walked twice and scored a run. Stop laughing. I'm serious. See above.

Nice form Ellis.

That tiny speck out there in the back 40 is me. Jo rocked as short stop.

Great acting Peter!

Fire in the Hole Dannen!

The finest Team Zombie catcher, I must say.


The really hard workers of the day.

Rain delay crazy eyes.
Of course it's really all about the kids. (sarcasm implied)

Team Retreat 2011

Happy Anniversary Shay and Juli!



Davis showing Craig how to use the skylight controls.

Ashlyn and Merschon comparing kneecap braces.

Watch out GQ.

After getting splashed be a wave, brrrrrr.


Can we all make it across?

Yes we can!

Whitepark Beach

No, Jo is not pregnant of course but the wind and her shirt did not mix.

Wow! Northern Ireland is beautiful and inexpensive, comparatively speaking. We stayed in a former pajama factory in Bushmills. We toured the Bushmills Whiskey factory for educational purposes of course. Bailey pointed out that part of the production line incorporated an Archimedean screw. Yeah for home education! Wednesday we visited the Giant's Causeway, walked across the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge and saw the Dun Luce castle. Thursday we came home after making a stop at the Banbridge outlet mall. I scored a skirt and capris at the Gap for £8.38 and Davis got some new shoes at Nike for £15. Bargain shopping rocks especially when it is in £ and not Euro. Throughout the 4 days we had great times of Bible study and discussion as a team. Mainly we had a lot of fun together before our autumn activities get rolling.

I know most of you who read this blog already know that Bonnie and Tyler were married last week, but for those of you who don't know, Bonnie and Tyler got married! Scott was very honored and blessed to be able to officiate his first ever beach wedding for these dear friends of ours. Afterwards, he and Corey flew to Miami to catch two Cardinal games. (Thanks to Hunter for the great tickets.)  After a 24 hour delay he came back to us with 4 heavily loaded bags. Fabric! Chocolate chips! Vanilla extract! Fabric! Clothes from Grandma! Fabric!
