I'M BACK .... TO THE LAND OF THE BLOGGING



What an amazing couple of weeks it has been. We finished team camp with a record of 15-5 I believe. It was an amazing 20 games in 7 days. We took a much needed break and headed to our pool for some fun in the sun. I just love this team !!!


After team camp was over, I flew to Michigan for the weekend to surprise Steffie (one of my travel mates from China) for her 40th birthday. Becky another China travel mate from Iowa also flew in for the surprise. We haven't seen each other in two years, but thanks to blogging and our forever bond of being Pingjiang moms, we didn't miss a beat . We talked until the early morning hours and just loved it. David and Emmie (Steffie's family) pulled off a wonderful surprise and I am so thankful to them for the chance to catch up with my friend.




I flew out Sunday from Michigan and gave Scott a quick Father's Day hug and we headed off to the Lankford's lake house with the team for some bonding time (super thanks to the Lankford's for hosting us). I for the first time ever tubed behind a boat. It was so much fun and we are all sore. The kids are trying to talk Scott into a boat now, so we can tube more often....







It has been a super fun, exciting, exhausting, busy, and loving time with the girls, friends and the kids. It is good to be back in blogger land. I have missed you all. If you want to see more fun pictures from the basketball trip check out thepridelions.blogspot.com. I will be putting together a super fun slide show later tonight.
