Brooke played in the Clinton tournament today (Monday, June 18, 2012) and ended up in the consolation bracket after losing the first match (1-6, 2-6). She won the second match (8-4), and played a friend from Muscatine for the winner of the consolation bracket. She lost that match (2-8), but it was fun for her and great experience.

So...while he was gone, we wanted to do something special for him to let him know we were thinking of him every day. The girls and I decided to tackle something we weren't sure if we could accomplish in just one week: Take on the Garage! We wanted Dan to be able to breathe easy next time he was looking for a tool, and we thought maybe he'd enjoy parking in the garage! - he's on his way home today from Canada, and we are really hoping he is surprised and is happy with what we've done. *gulp!*
So, here are a few "before" pictures:
Haley had a great time organizing small items into these bins...
It was a fun project, although fairly time consuming. As a motivation, we said we would treat ourselves to new cell phones at the end of the week IF we actually could pull this off. Well, by Thursday night, we had two parking spots (hopefully Dan's Suburban will fit in that empty spot), and by Friday morning, we were on our way to Verizon!
Happy Early Father's Day, Dan!!! We love you, and we missed you!
