Tuesday night we attended the National Night out in Nicollet. The humidity finally broke ( for a few hours). We gathered up my athletes from school and handed out beads, glow in the dark necklaces and pencils. While boyz were busy mingling with all the little kids and handing out goodies I put on close to 100 temporary sports tattoos. Although each kid kept telling me the same thing.....Mrs.Elliott I can't wait for school to start.........really because I can. It was a very nice evening out and we got tons of excellent complaints. I am sure you can all tell who is in the Blue Morph Suit! He had a great time but did manage to scare a little boy half to death when Tanner asked for a high5. How about these beautiful blue eyed puppies that are ready for new homes? They are so playful now and I am sure the only goal they have each day is to eat the flowers off my plants!

Well I don't know where the time has gone but summer is almost over! Darin had a great birthday on Monday. We took the boys to Tokyo Grill in Mankato and had a great chef. Can't tell by the video but he had a little fireman who wet the grill. The boyz got a kick out of the chef drawing designs with the food and tossed it around. Plus the boyz did the shopping for Darin's gift and did a great job on a new line and reel.
Boyz had another wrestling camp this week and boy has it been hot out! The puppies have grown into these fun and active little Elliott's. It will be hard to part with them but they will only be with us another 2 weeks.
And Tabor is only here for a few more days! We did our final inspection of his apartment today. Okay when Grandma King went to Ridgewater back in the day ( ha- thought I would give up your age didn't you) they called the apartment building "The Pit" I don't think much has changed. Captains practice starts on the 28Th and he will be all moved in on the 30Th.
Darin is out of state for a few days for a trip with Cargil guys. I am sure they are working hard on finding the fish. The expansion here at the Mankato Mill is going very well. Papa Cargil just announced another bonus trip for us! Everybody keep eating bread. Yeah! We know we are going the 3rd week in September but the location is still a secret. I'm excited but lets just say school/football coach is not. Smack dab in the middle of Homecoming week.

Well finally after 24 hours mom and babies are doing very well. We will be posting more photos when Dalton comes home from camp. We have 4 females(2blue and 2silver) and 2 males one of each color. Tabor lived through a horror story of a trip to the vet's office. And I will be going to town to buy a new purse and the van will be professionally cleaned on Monday. Let's just say those shots and I.V. worked really really fast! Now how many people say they delivered babies while driving?

Tabor has bee working full time and enjoying learning the ropes at the mill. He has been doing his football workout at the YMCA after work each day. Only two months left and he'll be off to college. With Tanner gone this week the strawberry patch has been producing lots of berries. I think he ate 5 for every one he put in the bowl.
Dalton spent two days at Jeff Tricky QB camp in Minnetonka last Friday and Saturday. There were many kids from Iowa, Wisconsin and Canada at the camp. Each camper worked with a NCAA college QB and were taped and taught about throwing technique. Outside of the stadium there was parents and coaches who were struggling to find the right player to watch. I thought to myself....."Rookies" every ones know you find your son by looking for his shoes!
We are so waiting for the weather to straighten out so we can head back to the lake! Many of you know we have been waiting ever so patiently for Rocky to have her puppies. As I promised Dalton nothing would go on the blog until he got to see photos first. Any guesses on how many she will have? This morning it was a struggle for her to walk to the end of the driveway and back again so we are getting very close.
