Week In Review

It's been a busy week since returning from Grand Marais.
Grand Marais 2009
We were all pretty tired out from our 3 day trip and all the activities and fresh lake air, so Tues and Wed were pretty quiet.

Thursday, my adult kickball league had a game. We tied 11-11. It was a pretty good game. The score kept going back and forth the whole game. We played all 9 innings even though we went over the 55 minute game time rule. The other team was able to tie us for runs in the last inning and we were unable to come back and score one more run. So far this season we are 2-0 and one tie. Pretty good record considering our team has not won a single game in 2 years which is 4 seasons. We play 2 seasons a year.

After our game I went to the Eagan Athletic Association directors meeting. We listened to a presentation from a lady from the University of MN. She was giving a presentation on youth in sports and why kids drop out from sports. She also talked of ways to be a good spectator and a good coach. It was pretty interesting.

After her presentation, I presented my budget to the board. It was approved! Then I was officially elected to the board of directors. So Eagan Youth Kickball is official! Now comes registration time. I really hope I get a good turn out of kids to register.

Friday night Ken had a softball game. Kevin went with him. Ken's team won their game. Kevin really likes to go to softball nights. He thinks he's pretty cool to hang out with the guys.

Saturday Kevin and I went to the MN Zoo. Our membership expires on May 31, so we figured we'd take one last trip. The zoo has a new exhibit this summer called "Africa" and yes, you guessed it, animals from Africa on exhibit. We got to see Ostrichs, zebras, and giraffes. The exhibit is really cool. Kevin and I got to feed the giraffes a biscuit. You could buy 2 biscuits for $5. Not bad for an experience like that. It's not every day you get to have a giraffe eat from your hand.

Today we are going to see the movie "Night At The Museum 2". The kids are pretty excited. I'm hoping it's as funny as the first one.

Sam has been busy chasing down the Ice Cream Truck all week. And the Ice Cream Truck has not shown up all week. Sam has been riding his bike out in the cul-de-sac. I'm not going to tell him that he's not coming....If waiting for the ice cream truck gets that kid outside and riding his bike, then so be it. He tends to like to be an indoor kid, so it's good to get him out and exercising. I suppose I should see if I can find out the ice cream truck schedule before Sam gets too frustrated. Besides, I wouldn't mind having one of those delicious Jolly Rancher popsicles.

Feeding the giraffe is pretty cool! Good luck with the ice cream truck. Knowing you, you'll take over the route!
