Trip to Maranatha

Good picture of Brie and Emily.

She gets a top bunk. Guess it was first come first serve. :) It has been a while since I made a bunk bed. Not easy!!!

This is Brie's dorm. She is on the other side of the building but I took this side b/c the name is on it.

happy 15th birthday Katie


Today is our youngest daughter's birthday. Can't believe she is turning 15 already. Seems like it was just yesterday that we were bringing her home from the hospital.
We are going to have a birthday breakfast with the family since dad has to work tonight, then we are going to have a birthday dinner with some of her friends.

Other news.....we took our oldest daughter to college yesterday. She is so excited about starting.We went around with her yesterday getting all the paperwork and pictures and all the audition times she needed. She has four roommates and hopefully has all the things she needs to start her semester. I would have pictures up to show you her room and all....but the memory card we used in the camera won't let me download them since we used my daughter's camera and not mine. So will have to get a disc made and then post them.

Have a great labor day weekend everyone. I know I am going to enjoy it. I have a four day weekend and am going to make the best of it. :)

You Scored an A

You got 9/10 questions correct.

It's pretty obvious that you don't make basic grammatical errors.

If anything, you're annoyed when people make simple mistakes on their blogs.

As far as people with bad grammar go, you know they're only human.

And it's humanity and its current condition that truly disturb you sometimes.

Look what I got :)

Like my new fridge???? We got it yesterday because my other one bit the dust. It was not keeping milk or anything cold and I am sure it was at least 20 years old, so it was time to get a new one. I love this new fridge. It has a water filter system on it so we can get good water to drink and has crushed and cubed ice. I like all the extras you get on appliances:) This is the first new fridge i have ever had. I always have gotten used ones. I am so excited. I go to the kitchen just to look at it hehe:)

too busy to post...

Wow!!! I was looking at the last time I posted and I haven't posted at all in August. I am really falling behind.
We have been very busy this summer. This last week we took vacation and had a great time. We went to Indiana to a family reunion, then the next day had a 90th birthday party for my grandpa. Then we came home and my parents, brother and sister and her family came to stay for a few days. We went shopping and found some really good deals and went to visit my aunt one day-which was very nice to see her and her hubby again.Then Thursday we really didn't do a whole lot-sort of a rest day. Friday we went into Chicago to shop. It was a lot of fun. We walked,I don't know how many miles that day around Chicago,but it was a lot of fun. We stopped at Millennium park and saw the bean and the sculptures there. The guys were at a Cub game that day and the Cubbies won.They were excited. We then ate dinner at Giordano's. Great Chicago style pizza.
This week we are getting the kids ready for school. It starts next week. I was not ready for all of them to go back at the same time. The younger ones usually go the week after high school but not this year. Guess it is good though. They are all ready to go back.
Hope you all have enjoyed your summer. I know we have. Just wish it didn't have to end.
