Really, June??

I can't even believe that it's June 22nd already. Insane. This year has FLOWN by.
Sure, it's been a crazy year for us becoming dads and all, but even so....holy cow, it's gone by quickly!!!

Anyway....I don't have much to report in the way of exciting news.

Last weekend was pretty busy. Jim and Zachary came to the fields on Saturday, which was fun - especially since we won (Yahoo!!).  After the game, we hung out with some college friends of mine and their families. Most of them hadn't met Zach yet, so that was a good time.
On Sunday, we celebrated our first Father's Day. Jim went to his sister's house for breakfast in the morning and I headed into Boston for my softball games. I only stayed for the first game, and then headed back home to meet up with Jim and Zachary. We pretty much just spent the day relaxing by the pool, playing cards, and having a few drinks. Later that evening we went out to dinner and then came home and collapsed. It was a very nice, relaxing day!

On Monday, I was working from home, but we had our monthly check in with our social worker as well as Zach's. They stopped by in the late morning and everything went well. Nothing new to report, we're just (patiently) waiting for the next court date to roll around. Until then, it's just business as usual!
Monday night, I had yet ANOTHER softball game, but this one was a night game played on the Boston Common.  We didn't win, but we played well and had a lot of fun!!!

Last night, Jim and I were 'guest speakers' at Panel Night for the latest MAPP training class. For those 'newer' blog readers, MAPP training is what all people who are interested in becoming foster/adoptive parents in MA have to go through in order to become certified. At the second to last class, a panel of 'experts' comes to the class and shares their foster/adoption stories with the class.
It was our first time being on the panel and it was an excellent experience. I can't wait to do it again!!!

I just looked back at my blog archives to this week a year ago, and I had just written about Jim and I receiving our 'official' certification from MAPP training.  I'd also written about me attending the 'car seat clinic' at work and that I'd received two brand-spankin'-new car seats our of the deal.
Little did I know when I was writing that, that less in than a year later we'd have a baby and those car seats (well, at least one of them) would be a part of our daily lives. CRAZY!!!!

That's all I have for now....nothing too exciting going on here....OH - but the rumor mill is churning away here at work. Apparently something B-I-G is supposedly happening here within the next 3 weeks or so.
I'm not going to get into it right now, but the rumors are flying fast and furious!!!!

Have a great day!!!

This was my Father's Day gift from the 'kids' :-)  Awesome

I like the 'few drinks' part of your Sunday celebration. I assume you mean milk in a bottle and then burping behind your backs... :-)
