Not Sure I'm Ready For Another Golfer.....

 Mercy me today was Claire's official golf match ever!! It was a scramble and we so proud that they used most of her balls! Love that she can hit straight over and over! That girl had a blast...despite the heat! Way to go Claire!

Rockin 44!

Well, Claire had a little putt putt challenge yesterday against Wedgewood Golf Club, and she did well! She plays her first real match today at Galloway...will post soon!!

Well, I turned 44 and was lucky enough to be surrounded by family and friends!!!!
Me with my nephew George and niece Gracie on my Bday...bittersweet, because they are moving to Nebraska!

 A lovely dinner at The Half Shell!  Yum!
Laura and her daughter Ellie joined us for dinner....I believe Claire was attempting to photobomb this one!

It's Fed Ex Tourney Time!

 So every year the 4 of us go to the Fed Ex St Jude Golf Tourney for a day.  Usually a Friday....and this year Lance was absolutely tickled that his golf hero David Duval was playing.  Lance loved David Duval back in the 90's and he still plays in tourneys today when he's not commentating on TV.  Well, we followed him for 9 holes and I guess he noticed us because when it was over and he signed his scorecard, he signed Claire's hat, and took his own hat off, signed it, and handed it to Lance.....St Jude pin and all.  Lance was speechless for the first time ever!

Golf Golf Golf!!!

 Jesse placed third in the 16-18 Tour Division Tuesday at Glen Eagle.  His confidence really needed that medal....way to go Jesse!!
 Jesse was the caddy for this man, who flew in from Chicago to play in the pro am...He owns 40 ish pizza restaurants in the Chicago area...Jesse was well fed and well tipped!! He was a happy young man!
 Jesse was fortunate to be a caddy in the St June Tourney Pro Am yesterday! He had a wonderful day and is here with one of the tour players Russell Knox, ranked #36 in the world.  Jesse caddied for his group.
Claire attended the Jr Clinic at the St. Jude tourney led by a pro and had a great time as well!

Lance took this amazing shot last week while Jesse had a fog delay before a golf match at Wedgewood......

And the week keeps on getting bigger!

 Oh boy...I can fell myself aging....
We bought a car that Jesse will drive with us in it until we are comfortable letting him go on his own....we picked a used car with the highest crash rating we could find!! He will have two summer jobs and golf, so I have no idea how we were going to pull off all that driving around.....we will see how this goes!! What a milestone week...a drivers' license, a car, a now job, and an upperclassman!  I can't handle it all!!!!

Happy Anniversary/Mother's Day...all in one!!

Well, this year we put together a new hard topped gazebo for the little back yard deck....Despite it taking several cool rainy weekends to get it done, it's all done! Lance & his dad even installed electricity to it complete with weather proof LED lighting and a fan!  Looks like the perfect place for a nap to me! I love it all, and I even have speakers out there!

I have a few more pillows and things I'd like to "bling" it out with, but I'm not going to ask Lance for a singe new thing...just yet

SFA Father/Daughter Dance 2017

Well, another wonderful St. Francis Father Daughter Dance has gone by and a blast was had by all!  This year it was packed, and their were drawings, dace offs, dance contests, and lots of yummy drinks and desserts!  Lance and Claire met a few other friends and their dads at Shogun, and then all proceeded to the dance together! I hope she never outgrows this!!!

Claire turns 11...and other fun!!!!

 Well, today our Claire turns eleven!  I just can not believe this, but I guess it's true.... being that it's the middle of a school week, she won't have her party until Friday...but we celebrated tonight with dinner with family!

 Her favorite breakfast breakfast of all!  Crepes!  And who doesn't love a good glass of white grape juice in a wine glass!

Claire got to see her cheer squad girls perform in SFA"s Beauty and The Beast!  It was fantastic!

Happy Birthday Sweet Claire!!! You are going to rock 11!!!
