The girls do some cheers during half time.
A minor league baseball game was on our bucket list for the summer......we attended a Lancaster Barnstormers game Saturday night.
We arrived early and enjoyed some hot dogs and fries
before the game.
This fella provides a lot of fun....
Ellen just giggles and laughs at his antics!
We enjoyed the game...
and our team won!
Look who also came to the game =)
Marcy and Scott
Paityn and Brinley
Scott's parents came too!
This was Paityn's first time at a Barnstormer's game!
They ended the game with a fireworks show....
It was a struggle to get Ellen to this game because of the fireworks.
She doesn't like the noise.
I got her earplugs.
She found they really did eliminate the loudness of the booms.
But the challenges of keeping her calm before she found
out how much they helped....
Parents with special needs kids know the depth of that
Sunday was church and our monthly Fellowship meal. Our pastor and family were away so we had a pastor from Ethiopia speak and a youth worship team from Petra (our parent church) lead worship. Even though our congregation is still reeling from an unexpected death of a young man last week, it was a great service.
We brought Paityn home with us and the rest of her family came later. Kim and Andrew and Greta and Lynn came too. We watched the Olympics....stayed indoors because it was soooo hot and humid outdoors! We had a storm too but it didn't do much to lower the temps!
I'll add a few photos from the Aaron's Acres family BBQ on Thursday evening.
Thankful for the shade as we wait to eat
those yummy burgers and hot dogs!
Ellen gets a hug from Debra, one of her camp buddies.

It was a good two weeks for Ellen!
I love looking at the sky.....here are a few shots I recently took.
Serious storm clouds!!
We had several storms recently that produced huge rolling clouds.
Pretty but a bit scary too!
At the Ballpark
Love a pretty sky!
Now it's Monday. Aidan and Zoe are on vacation so my concentration will be on this house. Each room needs a good clean and organization. Let the fun begin......
It will be a good week! Wishing you the same!
