A beautiful evening for baseball.


Even though Landen and Nathan both played some great games at Faulkton last night, I was only able to get a good photo of Nathan through the (very nice, but difficult to photograph through) new netting.
Both the PeeWees and the Midgets won 4-3.  The NW Midgets hadn't beaten Faulkton in a long time, so it was a hard fought and good win for them.


Post-game conference

God treated us to this breathtaking sunset on our drive home.

Minna returns!

Minna was my friends' foreign exchange student 20 years ago.
She was in NYC for a business trip last week and also flew to Fargo to see Tonya and Tina.
They made the drive to Eureka on Sunday, and my friend Amy and I were able to see her again, too!
It was great to catch up again and learn a little bit about Finland, her family and career now.

Mid-Season Tournament

 We had a fun day of baseball yesterday!
The Wildcats lost a close one to Faulkton in the morning, 0-2. Both teams played solid baseball and it came down to the difference of a hit. Even with the loss, it was a fun game to watch, and Nathan said it was a fun game to play, too.  

They came back in the afternoon with a 10-0 win over Highmore for 5th place in the tournament. Faulkton finished 3rd and Redfield won the Championship game.

Happy 16th Anniversary!

David & I celebrated out 16th Anniversary on Friday.  The years keep flying by and we are blessed beyond blessed.
Teresa made us a cake and some gifts for the day.
The dressing alike was completely coincidental . . . we don't like to make a habit of that (except for NW Wildcat gear!) :)

The L is for Love.

The yellow heart matches our kitchen perfectly!

We all celebrated with a trip to Aberdeen for pizza.
Here's to many, many more anniversaries!

. . . and softball!

Teresa is playing softball this summer on the Mellette 10 and under team. They had her first game last night and won 9-1.
She had a lot of fun, although it is a little different than baseball!
