But before Fall we had a summer that was very enjoyable. Darik's work load lightened up enough for me to see him from time to time and actually get in a trip to visit my family in July. He used his vacation days this summer to finish up some projects around the house and complete yet another college course through his work. He was one of the first to complete and Pass the course and myself and MidCo couldn't be prouder.

While I played ball every Sunday night and practiced whenever we could get some people together I got our niece, Eboni, enrolled in fast-pitch softball for her first year. She did an amazing job this summer learning and growing. She had softball every Monday and Wednesday. So our weeks started filling up fast with just sporting events. We were very proud of her success with softball this summer and cannot wait to see what she does next year.
While I played Sundays, Eboni played Mondays and Wednesdays, Adam played on Thursday nights this summer, along with almost every weekend. So watching softball soon turned into an almost full time job this summer. Good thing I enjoy ball, and that Darik likes relaxing and having a beer every now and then.

We finished the week out usually trying to hang out with our friends and family. We try to visit my grandparents at least every other weekend to play some cards and grill out when we can. Charleigh loves running free out at the farm and trying to chase the barn cats, thank goodness she's never caught one though. Those things have claws. :) Speaking of Char she has done much better over the summer months and hopefully will be doing better from now on.

All in all we had a good summer and are sad to see it go but looking forward to all the fun yet to come. As summer goes we know fall is here but can see winter around the corner which means Spring isn't too far behind in turn means the Wedding will be here before we know it. We can't wait to officially start our married lives together soon!
We hope everyone enjoyed the summer!
Promise to update more often!
