Went to the Corvette show in St. Charles, IL
Went to friend Katie's for a girl's night
Fed carrots to her horses (that's Jan)
Jan playing makeup artist to her niece Katrina
Katrina and Jan (wish I got a better picture of Katie's backyard...it's just beautiful!)
Last night we went to our friend Paul's. Katie's is beautiful, but Paul wins the beautiful backyard prize. Here's his backyard...
Paul built this lake himself, AND the dock, AND his house...
And he built this bridge from the house to the dock area
Paul's friend Eric getting ready to ride the rope swing into the water. Eric's college friends are Trey Parker and Matt Stone, who created South Park. They created the character Eric after HIM! Isn't that cool? And Eric is hilarious; I can totally see why they created a character based on him.
Eric fishing from the bridge and the girls chatting...
This is the only picture I have of Paul from last night. That's him on the right (below)
Nice view from his top deck. He lives only about 20 minutes from us.
Paul even built the little deck on the left so the kids could swing from the rope from there
That's my week in pictures.
This Friday, Eric and I are driving to Chicago for his basketball tournament - the King James Showcase. He wrote several emails to college coaches telling them that he'll be there. The coaches aren't allowed to contact players until September 1st of their junior year, but there will be over 200 coaches at the showcase. Eric wrote to UCLA, USC, University of San Diego, Cal State Fullerton, Illinois State, University of Illinois, and Mizzou. I don't know if coaches from any of those colleges will be there, but because he wrote to them, they'll start a file on him and hopefully will contact him at some point. Eric's friend Tyler is going to film his games and put together a highlight tape for him. He's done this for other athletes and is really good at it. Most coaches like to watch entire games of players, so we'll send complete game tapes too.
Hope everyone has a safe and Happy 4th!
