Late Summer HappeningsAugust 16, 2022 Lucia’s first time going off the diving board. Susan and Shelly in Shelly’s classic car. We went to a Des Moines Menace playoff game. They lost on PKs. We went to a car show. We decorated the sidewalk. We went for a walk along the Des Moines river while Mari was at soccer tryouts. Making bracelets was a popular activity this summer. I was a referee at Keeper Wars, a goalie competition. The kids made our foam float into a slide for the pool. The girls played in the creek on a walk with Susan. We got a cool volleyball net for the pool. We went for a hike at Greenwood Park. Rose, Lucia, and I went to the state fair. Andrew and Susan went to Eatery A for a final meal. College departure is close. Boy Cousins. They had a final weekend together, spending the night and doing some fun activities. Mari’s soccer season started, with a new club. She is in the white. We got a new couch. 8/16 – We had the Liesses and Reagens over for one last dinner before Andrew and Ian head off to college.
