“Paco’s team unfortunately lost 7-4 today (to the Grand Rapids division champs) but, Paco was awarded the game ball for two outstanding innings of pitching. It was his first time on the mound for the all star team and he only allowed one hit in his two innings.
Even better, he had a big smile in his face the whole time he was pitching.
They have another round-robin game tomorrow and if they win, they still make it to the state championships quarterfinals on Monday night.”
This is one of the best photos of Paco I have ever seen. He looks so happy. His face looks thinner.
Meant to take a photo of Erin with her latest visitor – Flash. Brandon arranged with Erin yesterday that he and Beck would come by today about 11 am. Beck arrived in his newest costume – a character named Flash. Clark and I had been up because we watched the last 6 holes of the British Open from about 8:30 am to 10:30 am. Erin dragged herself out to the living room when B and B arrived at 10:30 am. But, she couldn’t stay awake, so went back to bed. People with children definitely have earlier hours than we old folks!
Sounds like a football score, doesn’t it? Judy (Erin’s mother-in-law) texted Erin today that Paco’s Little League team had just won the finals for their district in Traverse City, Michigan. Paco had a hit which had advanced the eventual winning scorer for their team. Next step is the state finals in Grand Rapids.
Erin has mentioned several times today how much she misses her paternal grandmother, Jane, whom she called “Bombi”. Jane would have been 110 today. She lived to be almost 101. She was a very hardy soul with a great sense of humor. Usually I call her daughter, Jan, on July 19th, but today Jan beat me to it and called me.
The Apple store called that Erin’s replacement phone was in. Clark arranged that he could pick it up without having to have Erin go in.
Cindy came by on her way home from work tonight and brought tacos from Rubio’s in Gold River. Cindy even helped Clark figure out Windows 7. She is so calm. Erin enjoyed seeing her.
