Busy, Busy, Busy

Well, so much has happened in the nearly six months since I last posted. I have so much to tell you and I will give the quick version.

In January we had puppies, two boys and two girls... and all were sold by the beginning of April. This was great news, it's paying for our summer travels! We will be going to Seattle for a wedding, Cape Cod for our 20th anniversary, and Colorado for a Robertson Family Reunion. (yes, they are expensive dogs.)

I began jogging in the mornings and I was loving it. Then my work hours were changed and I was too lazy to get up that early to jog. At work we were told that 5 teachers and 8 aids would be cut from next years line up, I am one of them! That's okay actually, I've really missed my free time and the creative juices are ready to burst! I'm eagerly awaiting unemployment. It has caused me to make some decisions, I am going back to school to finish my degree to become a speech pathologist.

The kids continue to get older (but not me) and more fun! Jacob got his drivers license in January, now I send him to the grocery store! Taryn continues to dance and Christy excels in school. Christy also graduates from the 8th grade this week. We took a few pictures of her with

Maury parents bought us this awsome ceramic grilling, smoking barbeque. We are totally
enjoying it! So far this week he's used it every day, cooking chicken, fish, steaks, veggies, quiche and cobbler. So yummy!

I turn 43 next month, so being the
rebellious child that I am, I had my nose pierced! Will I ever grow up?

My sewing
and crafting will begin soon! I've had a few friends comment about how they wish they knew how to sew, SO, I am cleaning my studio and working to make it a more friendly "classroom" setting so that I can have those people over and teach them the fun and beauty of sewing!
