Where to start?? Well, Kelly left Saturday and made his way to Natchitoches, LA in three days. He stopped in Kansas City and Arkadelphia, Arkansas on the way. He arrived on campus at on Monday, just in time for practice. This week they have 4-on-1 practices (4 players to 1 coach per NCAA rules for pre season) and camps running in the evenings. Kelly is teaching a tennis class (!) and has found his office (in the equipment room). His schedule is jam-packed with baseball and he's loving it. He'll make his way to his blog eventually, but I wanted to fill you in for now.
The rest of us Spanns are busy as ever as we adjust to school, work and life without Dad. We miss him dearly, of course, but settled into our own routine pretty quickly. Nolan & I get home just before 4pm and Claire rolls in just a few minutes after. By the time we unwind, unpack our backpacks and eat dinner, we're getting into our jammies and are ready for bed. We hit the hay early and do it all again the next morning.
The weather has cooled and is beginning to feel like fall. I love the cooler temps when I can throw on a sweater and curl up with a cup coffee and a book! We'll visit apple orchards on school field trips and baking is a reality once again! (It was just too hot to turn on the oven for awhile!) Kelly, on the other hand, is still living in 95 degrees & sunny. Oh, the changes that are in store for us!
Until next time...
