A Wild Couple of Months!

It has been wild nine week summer!

Jack got out of school on Friday, June 11.

On Saturday, June 12, we attended the Laguna Cal Ripken TOC award ceremony, went kayaking, attended an orientation for the Jesuit summer program, hosted a barbecue for Sharon's family and went bowling!

The weekend of June 19 and June 20 was the pre-state Cal Ripken tournament. The Outlaws had 3 wins and 1 loss. For the weekend, Jack was 8 for 13 with one walk, no strike-outs, 5 doubles, 5 runs scored and 6 RBIs.

The Outlaws won a tournament in Woodland during the weekend of June 26 and June 27. Jack had an inside the park home run!

Starting July 2, Jack played in the Northern California Cal Ripken Tournament and we spent a night in Rohnert Park. The Outlaws beat Rohnert Park by a score of 17 to 6, lost to Oakland by a score of 5 to 4 in eight innings and lost to Concord by a score of 2 to 1. In the Rohnert Park game, Jack crushed a home run over the left field fence.

Starting to feel under the weather at a meeting at Green Valley on Friday, I came down with the flu and completely lost both days of the weekend of July 10. I missed my chance to see Spamalot.

We left for Spain on Wednesday, July 14.

During the weekend of July 17, we were in Barcelona on Saturday and Madrid on Sunday.

After spending a few days roaming the Spainish countryside (Segovia, Avila and Toledo), we were back in Madrid during the weekend of July 24 and flew home on Sunday, July 25.

We took off for eight days and seven nights at Lake Shasta on Saturday, August 1.

We came back from Lake Shasta late on Saturday, August 8.

We spent Sunday, August 15 in the Napa Valley.

Jack started school on Tuesday, August 17.
