The Philippines, et al

I finally just learned how to type the name of the blasted country. Not that I have anything against the country; I don't. But I could not, for the life of me, spell that country. I just have to remember Philip lives in the pines.

I am being spammed by someone here at eBay about information for my trip. "Here are the restaurants that are open 24-hours-a-day."

"Here are the shots you need. Or don't need. Your choice." My choice?

"Here's your hotel room. We know it's not much." By the way, here is my room.

"Here is your travel itinerary."

"Never mind."

I am getting really antsy. I am definitely going to take my Max Hall jersey and wear it proudly around Manila on August 30th. And then on the plane ride home. I am extremely jealous that the rest of my family (mom, dad, Greg, Brian, etc.) might be riding motorcycles up to Washington for the game up in Seattle. But, then I just send them a link to my hotel room. :)

The kids finished their swimming lessons today and start soccer tomorrow. Talk about busy - and they aren't even in their teens yet when it really gets busy. We had to get Hunter some new cleats and he thinks he's pretty fast now (doesn't every kid when they get new shoes?). Cassia has a new-found interest in soccer now. I am not sure what changed. Last year it was trying to find the best flowers to pick for mom (all during the game) to actually showing a desire to play, albeit after one practice. I'll take the improvement though.

And Redick's favorite word is now "Diet Coke." It's pretty cute though, because he has a southern accent.

I loved seeing the kids practice soccer in your front yard last night--so cute! Gavin started soccer too so I told him he might get to play against Cassia sometime. He also spends most of the game just waving to Mom!
