Proud Moment

OK, we may not be his real parents but we felt just as proud at the Track and Field Banquet as Tim got his Letter and certificate. This is a big deal for a kid who has never been on a track team before. In fact he did even run very much before this but he went to every practice and even with shin splints he pushed through and his hard work paid off! CONGRAT'S TIM!!!

Family and Friends

What would life be with out family and friends?? I am not sure but.... I know I don't ever want to find out!!! Happy Memorial Day!!

Raystown lake

Finally the weather turned warm and so off we went for the weekend to Raystown lake. We get up there once in a while but not nearly enough. Tim took his friend Karl and we had a really great time. Our friends Barb and George have a boat so on Sunday we went out. The air was a little cool but the water was colder....that did not stop the boys from doing there thing. They jumped off the cliffs, fished and went tubing on the jet ski. I give them big props because the water was COLD!!!

While in Florida we went to see my cousin. We had not seen them in about 10 years. Crystal was only maybe 6 or 7 years old the last time. She is really a great kid!!! We only got to spend a few hours there....but it was great! I only wish we lived closer so we could spend more time with them. Hopefully they will be able to come and visit next summer!!

Randy had a convention in Florida so we all decided to go and hang out for a few days. We had a great time. We started at the beach, then Kennedy Space Center and finally in Orlando.

Tim took this picture of us on the Cocoa beach pier.

Kennedy Space Center

We went on a air boat ride and saw lots of Scary Alligators. This one that Tim is holding is only about a year old.

Minnie Mouse, Tim, Rich, Dorinda, Randy and of course Mickey Mouse at Animal Kingdom.

Where I spent most of my mornings!!! Ohhh....I miss that hammock!!

Getting ready for summer

Randy was out "tilling" the garden a few weekends ago. We finally had a day with out rain....which has been very rare as of late. We will be ready to plant it in a few weeks.

The boys were out loving the day as well.

I went to France in March with a school group from my hometown. What can I say....I LOVED IT!!! I was sick the first few days but was better after that. Here a few of the thousands of photos I have hope you enjoy!

What 3 classes looks like

The first photo is Randy in Florida doing homework. The second photo is Randy at home....doing homework!! It never stops!!

Where have we been?

OK, I know it's been a LONG time since I posted anything....I can assure you we have not fallen off the earth!! Long story short.....closed the store 28 Feb. a few days before got the stomach flu, the weekend after I closed got a cold/sinus infection. Went to France a week later....had to recover for almost a week after I returned, started helping out with critter care, a pet sitting animal care service, went to Florida, getting ready to go to New Hampshire and start school in 2 weeks. Where is Randy.....working and doing homework and taking care of the house, Tim, and the pets while I have been gone....he did go to Florida though. He took 2 accelerated classes and 1 reg. class last time and is now finishing one reg. class and started 2 more. I don't know how he does it!!
