The Perfect Summer Sunday

Our two oldest kids play on a church softball league, yesterday was their allstar game. Both of our kids were chosen to play on the allstar team so we packed up the family after church and off we went.

The game was held at a local park, each team set up an area to grill and hang out together. It was a warm, sunny day, with just enough clouds to provide a break from the sun occasionally (though by the end of the day, we were sitting in the shade of our son's truck!) First was the picnic, then a homerun derby and finally the big game.

A wonderful time was had by all, we came home tired and happy. As the oldest 3 went off with their friends, the rest of us settled in for the evening.

Today, I'm still tired. Thankfully there isn't much pressing except for a few loads of towels (our family of 8 goes through towels in no time!) so it will be a puttering day. I'm going to machine piece on the strip quilt for a while, and then maybe this evening will work on the frame while the ballgame is on. Storms are supposed to blow in later, I love to quilt and watch the rain. And I'll bask in the afterglow of our perfect summer Sunday.

Happy quilting!
