We all slept pretty late this morning because it had been almost midnight before we got the call to tell us what time Cameron had to be at the ball field-11:00 for the game and he would need to be there at 10. Not too bad!
We were up and showered and had breakfast in plenty of time. We found the field without any problem and went to watch the end of the game being played while Cam and his teammates warmed up. The game started promptly at 11 but we were soon down by 4 points. The boys battled back and went ahead but in the last inning, we got behind and couldn't pull it out. Bummer! It was a single elimination game, so the tournament was over for the Bengals.
The boy's cousin Jensine had come to the game and brought another friend of hers named Lindsay. The two girls had spent a lot of time with Tyler while at the ball game, and when I suggested that the boys come over to swim this afternoon. They said they would, and asked if Jensine and Lindsay could come too. I told them that they could all come. They all went home for awhile but about 4, Kim brought the boys back. They said the girls might come but they never showed up. The boys and I went to the pool but there was a large birthday party going on and they didn't want to crash the party. They came back to our house and hung out for awhile, hoping the party would break up but it didn't. They went home about 6:30 and said that we would try it again next week.
We stayed inside and watched "The Blind Side" on television. If you haven't seen it, it's a great "feel good" movie. We both read the book and now saw the movie and they are excellent. I plan to spend a lot of time reading my Kindle when we get to Colorado this summer. I am looking forward to sitting outside A LOT this summer when it's nice and cool but of course I'll be thinking about all of my friends and family back here in Texas. Enjoy the heat and humidity!
