MAPLEWOOD, Minn. - I can't believe it's the middle of August already! This summer has gone by really fast. It is exciting to see fall sports starting up. Their first games are only a few weeks away! In the meantime, I am enjoying my last few weeks of summer.

This week at home has been a lot of fun. My family and I have been busy playing many games including Horse, cribbage, botchy ball, Monopoly and Life. I was the proud winner in Horse! (The results of the other games weren't important! Ha ha!)

On Tuesday, we went to the Twins game. It was not one of the Twins better games after losing 14-6 to the Kansas City Royals. It was still a fun time and an awesome atmosphere in the dome. Next year the Twins are getting a new stadium and are going to be playing outdoor baseball. Twins fans can't wait!

On the basketball court, my teammates and I have been working hard lifting weights, conditioning and shooting. We only have two weeks left until we report back to school so this is always the time our workouts are amped up. Our first game is only 3 months away! I can't wait!!
