Has it really been almost a month since I last blogged? Wow? Well, let's see . . . As usual, it's been a busy couple of weeks!
KJ's lax season is winding down but volleyball is in full swing. It feels like this travel volleyball season has gone on FOREVER. We were supposed to participated in a tournament at the U of Delaware last weekend but at the last minute the team decided to do a tournament closer to home and the girls ended up winning it all. KJ, like T, has had a difficult time juggling the two sports (T had to juggle dance team and lax in high school). Actually, I shouldn't say that. She's been very clear on what she needs to do to be a contributing member of each squad and has to make some tough decisions. I think she's done a great job (especially maintaining her grades! Honor Roll again baby!!!). It's been her coaches who have had a harder time. She's had to miss some lax for volleyball and vice versa. The weekend they won the volleyball tournament she had to miss a lax game and her lax coach was a little upset with her. On the flip side, she's had to miss volleyball for lax. Fortunately, she's playing great on both both squads and has had two lax goals this season so far and numerous assists! Big Daddy is SO proud!!!
Easter in Dallas was a ton of fun and we had such a great time at Six Flags with T-bone and Pony Boy! Johnny Frat-Boy had never been on extreme roller coasters before and I think he had a thrilling time! We had a wonderful brunch at the Westin and after T and Fratty headed back to Oxford, KJ, Cosmo and I spent the afternoon exploring downtown and did the tour at the Book Depository at Dealy Square. Fascinating exhibit and the history nerd in me loved it! We also walked around the campus SMU. Monday, while Cosmo was at the office, KJ did some shopping at Grapevine Mills and had a fun lunch at the Rainforest Cafe and walked around the quaint town of Grapevine. We fond the new Steel City Pops and chilled with some pops and had lunch at a great Mexican restaurant before KJ and I flew back to Baltimore. Cosmo likes the Dallas branch and his apartment is very cool, kinda feels like an upscale New York loft -- HUGE bathroom, granite counters, chef's kitchen, etc.
Cosmo flew home this weekend and my parents were also here for a few days on their way back to PA from wintering in FL. It was a nice, low-key weekend. The weather was nice, but only in the low 60's w/ lots of sunshine, We had Jimmie Cone for the first time this season on our way to dropping Cosmo off at the airport.
Gotta busy week coming up -- lots of landscaping going on and we're going to open the pool soon. KJ has lax and volleyball this week and I've got to get my car registered in Maryland since my Alabama registration is about to expire.
