Memorial Day

Well after a busy weekend of graduation festivities we are looking forward to a quiet day on the lake. Graduation party was a big hit and with all of the extra kids around here the leftovers are almost gone.

With all the hoopla of getting a day off from work we would like everyone to remember the true meaning of Memorial Day. All Americans need to say "Thanks" for all those who have fought for this country and for those who are still fighting to keep us safe.

The photo is of Uncle John receiving the Purple Heart a month ago in Afghanistan. He will be arriving to 29Palms this week.

A Big Thank YOU to all those who serve this Country!

Bubba's Last Day of School!

Tabor was is no mood for a picture on his last day of school. He is not so bothered by the last day of high school but more so it might be his last day playing high school sports. Baseball has a big game tonight in Sleepy Eye for the Sub Section Champions @ 5pm. It's been a busy week for Tabor, Monday we had new student orientation at Ridgewater College. Tabor got into all of the classes he wanted to. We got to see his new apartment and it was same place Grandma King lived in when she went to college in Willmar. I guess they changed the name, Grandma said it was called the "PIT" well now it is called Evergreen Estates. So looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday for Tabor's party! From 3 to 6 we are serving up some of Tabor's favorites.

Busy Weekend!

Saturday the JV baseball team took 2ND falling to LCWM. Dalton has found his sweet spot for baseball. Wonderful weather to be at the ball park! Then we hosted the After-Prom game show. We had 50 kids who stayed after the dance and partied with until 4:30a.m.! We did "Plinko" Now & Then. Minute to Win it and my favorite "Let's Make a Deal". Darin did his best Drew Carry impression. Tabor was a big winner and won a $500.00 Browning Shotgun, 10 rounds of sporting clays, $50.00 worth of gift cards . He also came home with t-shirts, photo albums and lot's of other stuff. Now we just need to all get caught up on our rest.

Run Tanner Run

Well we got a beautiful day for a track meet. LCWM/Nic Knight Raiders won hands down. Tanner is still wondering if this whole track thing is for him. He loves to run to condition for wrestling but track seems to run just to run and the jury is still out on that one.

A Break in the Weather!

Okay we are finally back playing ball! This week the only night we won't be at the ball park or track meet is Monday night. So a busy week for the Elliott Boyz! Tabor's varsity team is 2-1 and Dalton's JV team is 1-1. We have so many make up games to get in due to the rain. Tanner's track team keeps taking 2ND place and each time he competes he improves his personal best. Tuesday night all 3 boyz are in Lake Crystal so hopefully we'll have some track snap shots to show off. Today it only got up to the upper 40*'s. Come on where is the warm weather?
