Football, West Coast, Birthday, etc

Lots going on around The Dorminy Home.

Mack started flag football again this fall.  He seems to enjoy it and has a coach that is serious about it, which we appreciate.  He is learning a lot….I am proud of how good of a listener he is, and if there is one thing that Josh has made sure he knows, it’s that you do not walk on the field.  Ever.  Mack runs on and off the field, to the coach, to his position, to wherever.  He isn’t going to be found walking on the field.  And I love how he goes to whoever does something good on the team and gives them a high five, letting them know he is glad that they did good.  Love that kid.

Josh is sorely missed when he is gone.  Here he is with the kids after a late night return…..

He invited me to join him on his birthday out on the west coast.  We had a nice time being together.  And that no humidity thing?  It’s for real, and I like it.  A lot.  Not one drop of sweat even at temps 100+!!  A special shout out to PawPaw who stayed with the kids.  He is nothing short of amazing when it comes to taking care of the kids.  They went to Wal Mart daily.  He was basically a short order cook for Molly who eats non-stop.  He took care of Mack’s football practice, Molly’s sewing lesson, and got everyone in Sunday School. Words cannot express how thankful I am that he takes such an interest in the kids.  They are making many great memories with him.  He even did some school work with them.

Above, he is playing a little checkers with the kids in Cabelas.  This is as far as I got in the store…the chairs in which to lounge. That place is huge.

In West Hollywood we drove around a lot with a group looking to start a church out there.  It was great to see a part of the world I haven’t been to yet.  And I enjoyed being able to visualize where our friends will be living as they start their new adventure.

We saw “O,” a Cirque du Soleil performance.  It was entertaining!

We ate here one night.  Delicious!  We were all sitting outside and enjoying ZERO percent humidity.  Nice.

And we are back to square one…packing that suitcase again…
