Little Man and two friends play Star Wars.

The parents of these kids saved our butt.

Mom works at a different school than the kids, so we
need before and after school care.

Last year, a bus stopped at our daycare place.

This year, the kids had to change schools. 
(due to budget constraints, our kids school closed)

 Buses from the new school did not stop at our daycare.

We would have to pay for the daycare’s bus at $3 per kid
per day.

Just for before and after school care, it would have been
$350 a month!

This family agreed to watch our kids before and after
school until Mom gets there.

Total blessing

I got caught by a train on the way home.

 Not just any train, it was one from the INDIANA rail line.

We had an Apple moment today.

We did an iPhone to iPhone video call from Mom to her friend.

I am no Apple fanboy, but this video call feature is pretty cool.

Little Lady had soccer tryouts today.  She did very well!

This is the first year for fall soccer, usually she plays in the spring.

We all went on a “date” to Rascle’s Fun Zone.

Here Little Lady is hurling a ball on mini bowling.

The kids are racing each other hard.

Eventually, Little Man passes her.  She was got caught behind slower
traffic.  This slow kid kept bumping Little Lady so she would not pass.

Little Lady got a hole in one on her very fist hole!

Maybe we will get her those golf clubs she has been asking for….

Here the girls are teaming up on Little Man.

Now the kids had their opportunity to soak Daddy.

By the end of the day, the kids were SOAKED.  We should have brought
a change of clothes!

Ice Cream social!  Little Man displays his creation with
about 2 pounds of sprinkles.

Mom sent out e-vitations earlier in day.  We had a pretty good turnout
for a spur of the moment party.

After some ice cream, a couple of the dads pitched some wiffle ball
for the kids.

While we played wiffle ball, the adults hung out along first base line.

Target had this supersized Lego Darth Vader display.
(I would save a lot of time if my paycheck was direct depost to Target
and Legos)
