As a family, we have now lived through our busiest part of the summer. Mid-July had us going in various directions:
Two weeks of morning swim lessons for Levi and I.
A week of Trail Life USA camp for Ben, Luke, and Dad.
Get the house ready for Nana and Opa’s visit; pick them up from airport.(They stayed with the boys while Dave worked and I was gone).
Get home from camp, unload and drive 2+ hours to a 50th birthday party for family. Get stuck in horrific traffic jams.
Next day, I leave for 5 days to a Classical Conversations training in upstate New York.
Ben gets a 4-day a week, 6 hour a day job for the rest of the summer. We have mounds of laundry to do.
After such a busy time of not really seeing anyone, I proclaimed this past Sunday Family Date Day. After church and lunch and a bit of rain, we headed to play mini-golf.
What a sweet time of laughter it was! I haven’t belly laughed at so many comedic errors in a long, long time. Everyone was in good spirits and was a good sport. We all laughed at each other over and over again. Dave’s ball knocked Ben’s into the cup, giving him a technical hole-in-one……and just a few holes latter, Dave did it again giving me a hole-in-one. There were a couple holes that Luke (or me) just couldn’t get the ball more than 5 feet past the pin. Over and over this happened. Yes, I know you had to be there so appreciate it all. We had a blast.
Because my boys cannot go 2 hours without eating, we decided to splurge and have ice cream for dinner:
It was a great family memory day, and I know that we will have to have another A-Team Comedy of Errors Mini-Golf Challenge in the future.
