Labor Day Weekend

Andy and I came back from NY to find a nice surprise- a clean house and Amber home for the weekend! The girls were so awesome to take care of everything at home for us while we were gone. Amber came home almost every night to sleep over and then drove to school the next day. How did I get so lucky to have such great kids!!

Drew took this picture in our back yard - I thought he did a great job!

Yeah Yeah I know, It's been forever...

Obviously I'm not very good at this blogging business. So I'm just going to post a few pictures to let you all know we are alive.

News since my last post:

We had a great 2 whole months of summer! No more year round school for Drew--Yipee!

My little girl grew up and moved out :( -- Luckily only 30 min away

School (college, high school, and elementary!) has started again and life is back to somewhat normal.

Drew is still in school. Last week his teacher sends a note home..."Our students have been working hard on their plays. You are invited to come watch this Friday at bla bla. Please send a costume with your child for the dress rehearsal tommorrow. It can just be a simple costume from supplies you have at home. Your child is a... WOODPECKER.

Ok wait a minute... They have been working on this play for quite some time and we find out the night before we need a costume! I don't know about you, but I don't have woodpecker "supplies" at home! Needless to say, I was a little ticked. But with a quick trip to the craft store we were able to come up with a costume. It turned out pretty cute even if he did look more like a chicken.

It was a cute play and Drew did great.
