Summer Soccer Camp

So last week was a little bit chaotic. We had a house guest who split his time between my in-laws and our house throughout the week. Last year we had him as well and he is from the Red Bulls franchise. Tom and three other coaches came up to Binghamton to coach a week long soccer camp at the school. It was a great experience for the kids and a lot of work for the parents. Every night we switched houses for dinner and drinks. It was a fun time but I am enjoying the peace now.
On Saturday we took Tom fishing down at the pond...right on his first cast he caught a small trout. His very first time fishing and he was a natural. Unfortunately the trout swallowed the hook and Todd could not get it out. I could tell that Tom felt bad as the fish went bellied up on the side of the pond. Well...needless to say Todd took it home, cleaned it and grilled it. Tom really enjoyed that!

To top it all off, this is the Brits humor.
He said in his British accent "Look, I made a goldfish".
Weird sense of humor but we all laughed!

On other news, I have been creating a little lately. This serving bowl is quite large and I'm pretty pleased with it. I do have to fix one of the handles yet as it dried a little too quickly and the handle pulled away from the bowl. Any color suggestions??
Is this not the cutest puppy you have ever seen?
Her name is Paisley and no she is not mine.
Her parents brought her up to my in-laws house on Friday night for our dinner. She is a Yorki-Poo and sweet as sweet can be. I hinted around to Todd but to no avail. I did convince him into getting another hamster that Graydon was begging for. So the photos of Mario will be posted at a later date or whenever he will hold still long enough.
