Happy National Hot Dog Month!
Since Lily is at camp this week, we had dinner at one of Navy’s favorite places, Coney Dog Cafe.
Navy ordered his usual, a plain hot dog and chips. I got my usually, a Chicago dog!
It is so hard to find a decent Chicago dog, especially outside of a sports venue. I usually get one when we go to a baseball game, but I was so happy to find a local Chicago dog that didn’t come with the price of admission.
We both ordered root beer floats. There’s just something about root beer and hot dogs that go together. And, you can never go wrong with ice cream!
We haven’t been able to visit this place as much as we used to. Navy and I have made it our special spot. We’ve been going here together since we was 4 and in preschool.

It has been such a gorgeous day. The weather was in the upper 70’s, with the exception of a couple of rain showers, it was sunny and warm all day.
That means the kids spent a large portion of the day outside. Bikes came out of the garage. Sidewalk chalk was out front. Their little lawn chairs are on the patio.
The sprinkles of rain also made the already wet ground perfect for playing the dirt and mud.
And, that is exactly what Navy did. Continue reading
Hard to believe that the school year is out for the summer.
Navy finished kindergarten and will be moving on to first grade in the fall. He had a great year and is making strides in reading.
Lily is done with fourth grade. This year had been a bit of a struggle because more of the work required Lily to stay organized to get her assignments and work turned in on time. Her teacher gave us some great advice so that won’t be an issue in fifth grade.
I can’t believe that we’ll be gearing up for First Grade and Fifth Grade in the fall. However, we still have summer!
So many fun and exciting things are going to be happening soon, and we’re going to enjoy it while we have a break from school!
After missing a game and a few practices because his arm was in a splint, Navy was happy to finally be able to play baseball again.
As a rookie, he spends more time in the outfield and bats near the end of the line-up. Continue reading
I got a call from the school day. Navy fell at the skating rink and is complaining that his arm hurts.
He would be in the nurse’s office with an ice pack and could I please come get him to have his arm checked out.
After a LONG three weeks of a walking boot (less if you factor in that he figured out how to take it off and put it on when I wasn’t around), Navy no longer needs to wear his walking boot!!
The doctor even joked that he didn’t need to see him anymore for this injury, but wouldn’t be surprised if he saw him in the future. He knows Navy too well…
We celebrated by having a delicious ice cream sundae, and he was finally able to wear his new Paw Patrol snow boots (even though we still don’t have snow).
Glad to get that wrapped up before our insurance deductible renews!
Navy was upgraded to a walking boot.
After a LONG two weeks in a hard half-cast, Navy’s foot has heeled enough to use a walking boot. He won’t have to use his walker anymore, and he can take it off to take a bath!
He goes back to Fort Wayne Orthopedics in 3 weeks. Hopefully we’ll graduate to wearing both shoes again!
(It would also be nice to get this wrapped up before insurance deductibles start over again in January.)
