Family Fun

August 20-21
New Castle, Indiana and Cincinnati, Ohio
We had a two day whirlwind tour of Glover family kids and grandkids before everyone went back to school and work after summer vacation.

Here are some pictures of the grandkids in their many activities.

Grandson Andrew demonstrates his skill at ambidextrous tennis ball juggling with two racquets.

Grandson Collin demonstrates his bicycling tricks.

Baby Annie captivates us with her happy disposition (and her very strong almost walking legs).

We also enjoyed games of Star Wars Monopoly and multi-player solitaire (up to six of us at once!) and a wonderful home cooked meal with the New Castle Glovers.

Granddaughter Meredith (in red) playing the first of three games in a soccer tournament against very tough competition. She is a strong player with awesome endurance, and had very little time to sit out during this game. It was already hot before 8 a.m. when we were watching this game.

Twins Natalie and Mollie demonstrate their diving board tricks at the pool. They also showed us their excellent swimming skills and flips in the air when thrown by their father. (I remember doing that fifty years ago or so.)

Grandson Harrison plays goalie in the Wyoming High School Varsity vs. Alumni soccer game. Although he is goalie for the Varsity team during the school year, he tended the Alumni goal, due to a shortage of Alumni players. Talk about a conflict of interest . . .

We also enjoyed catching up with the Apfelbecks (grandkids Kate and Patrick and their parents) and Dick's daughter Megan over dinner between swimming and the Varsity vs. Alumni game. How did we fail to get a shot of the dinner table at the bustling Gabby's restaurant? We were just too busy talking.
