The Week In Review – Backwards

We have had a great week with beautiful weather and lots of activities.  Temperatures have been in the 80’s (finally) and the sun has been shining every day this week.  The warm temperatures have made it a bit more difficult to sleep at night since we still do not have air-conditioning.  We did finally order three sets of new windows for the bedrooms.  This will allow for a window air-conditioner in our bedroom.  Needless to say, Mike is quite excited.  No more sleeping in the basement on those really hot nights.

THURSDAY – We finished our regular season of volleyball last night with a 2-1 match.  The games were tight and the other team had a very aggressive player who spiked the ball every chance he had.  Playoffs start next week – wish us luck!

WEDNESDAY – Sophia had her 2nd soccer game on Wednesday.  She played most of the game with only a couple of short breaks.  She did a lot of running and got her foot on the ball serveral times.  Her face was bright red by the end of the game.  The kids were all excited for our after-game snack – Icee push pops!  She is still the only girl playing on the team, but she doesn’t seem to mind.  Mike, Sebastian and I all cheered her on.

TUESDAY – Mike’s 42nd birthday was on Tuesday.  He took the day off to golf with a friend at the Black Bear course.  Mike and his friend both had great games, but Mike was happy to have beaten his friend by 2 strokes.  After golf, Mike picked up the kids early from daycare and spent the afternoon playing in the backyard and swimming in the pool until I got home after work.  John and Denise had put a huge pack of steaks in the fridge for Mike’s birthday present.  We enjoyed those with fresh corn on the cob and french bread.  We also had homemade birthday cake for dessert.  Yellow cake with homemade chocolate frosting – Mike’s favorite.

MONDAY – We welcomed a new member into our family on Monday.  Her name is Daphne and she is a 4 year old boxer.

Mike and I read this bio on Daphne and saw her photo and we knew we had to see her.  We drove to Wyoming, Minnesota on Saturday to meet her.  On Monday we officially adopted her into our family.

Breed: Boxer
Age: 4yr.
Gender: Female
Weight: 48lbs.
Date Added: 7/14/09

Daphne is a beautiful dog and very petite for a boxer.  She was found at one year, abused and very shy of men.  Three years later, she has gone through 2 levels of training, housetrained, crated trained, goes potty on command, loves children and her humans. Cats????
 
Daphne loves her baths and for fun, running through a sprinkler or just standing in the spray!  She is also a good watch dog, but definitely not aggressive.  She loves females and will warm up to men. 
 
She is very well trained, runs around without a leash and has excellent recall.  Daphne has lots of energy like a pup, but is also a nice housedog. 
 
Boxers need lots of exercise, human contact, TLC, and a job.  Her new home will need those qualifications. 
Daphne is spayed, micro-chipped utd on vaccines and heartworm tested.

  1. OH MY GOSH!!! I still can’t believe you now have a dog!!! We did see a picture of her on Melissa’s IPhone up at the lake. But we can see her much better on my own computer. What a cutie. Now we have six grandchildren, two granddogs, and one grandcat. Quite a family, I would say. Can’t wait to see her in person. We will talk to you soon to see how it is going with your new addition to the family.

    Love, Mom
