End of July????!!!

Wow! What a fast summer. I cannot believe it is end of July. I guess it didn't help that we went on vacation for 10 days. That probably sped the summer up a bit. Vacations fly by so fast. We went to Traverse City, MI and camped for 10 days with our good friends and their kids. We had so much fun on the beach, went wine tasting (got a little tipsy!), had campfires and celebrated my birthday! Now I am back to work, kids are back to their social life, and Jon is back to working and coaching soccer for Taylor. I will post pictures of vacation as soon as I upload them from the camera.

Jon has his 20th class reunion this weekend. I am really not looking forward to going. I know NO ONE! Ok...maybe one person, but that could be pushing it if she doesn't go! I don't know what to wear either. Do we dress up, stay casual? No clue here.... Ugh!

Other news....Little Jon broke his leg 5 days before vacation. He broke his femur riding his dirt bike around our yard. We had to call an ambulance b/c I didn't know if his neck and back were hurt. He hit the guide wire that comes down off of the telephone pole. So so scary. He is ok though. He had emergency surgery and got 2 rods put into his leg. So, vacation for him probably wasn't the greatest, but his friends and best friend took great care of him and made sure to do things that he could be involved in. Jon is still on crutches and will be until school starts. What a bummer for him! and so scary for his dad and I!!!

Have a good day everyone!

Highly Recommend...

I was reading one of my daily blog reads on The Ross Family. I have been following Lindsay's post for a while now. She put these two blogs up on her site and boy, did they make me cry me eyes out while here at work.

The first site is about a little girl who fell in the hottub at home and the other is about a 3 year old little girl who crawled into the family car on a hot day and by the time the parents found her, she was unconcious. Both of these really made me step back and think and really cherish my kids even though they drive me nuts sometimes. I was watching my daughter sleep last night and I started crying thinking that I don't know what I would do if she wasn't in my life. Words can't explain the devestation of not having Jon, Taylor, or Megan in my life. Thanks Lindsay for the recommendations.

It's July Already??!!

Oh my gosh....Where has this summer gone already? And what a rainy, rainy summer it has been. Here in Michigan, we have had a TON of rain constantly. I want warm weather, I will even take humid, BUT NO MORE RAIN.

Anyways, we are going on vacation in 8 more days! We are going to go camping for 10 days at Traverse City. We went there last year and had a blast. This year we are going with family friends, should be even more fun. I can't wait to get away and do nothing and have no plans for 10 whole days. And...the best part is...the day we come back is my birthday! I love my birthday, love, love, love it! If only I could get Jon to understand this!!

I have been playing soccer twice a week on an adult outdoor league. It has been fun and great exercise. I have also been doing training here at work to start a new part of my job. Can you say unlimited Overtime??!! Once I get back from vacation the OT will start. I bet we will be needed money after vacation...
