Larry's dad had surgery to repair his broken hip and will be out of the hospital tomorrow. He'll go to a rehab hospital for two weeks and hopefully up and at 'em by his 90th birthday on August 1st!

Eric's 3 on 3 basketball team is 15-2 at the DeSmet camp. Not too shabby since there are 100 kids there. Also, Eric is the only 8th grader on his team. The others are 6th graders! Today Eric got to play 1 on 1 with Kevin Lisch, who is the point guard for SLU (St. Louis University). He said he "got smoked" (his words). They played in front of all the kids at the camp. Also, yesterday Blake Ahearn of the Miami Heat was there. He went to DeSmet for high school, so that was fun for the kids for him to be there.

On the first day of basketball camp Eric put on his basketball shoes in the morning and found out his shoes were a size 11 and his feet are now a size 13. So he had to play basketball for 6 1/2 hours with shoes two sizes too small. When I picked him up from camp he said, "I'm afraid to take off my shoes; I think my toes are bleeding!" They weren't, but we went directly to Champs for a pair of size 13's. Poor kid!

E's baseball team won their first game last night! Woo hoo! Afterwards, Eric was on the phone telling someone and they asked what the score was. Eric said, "We lost 10 to 7." I said, "You mean you WON 10 to 7!" He's so used to saying "we lost." So that was exciting. Eric didn't pitch but played a great game at first. Got 2 hits, an RBI and walked.
