Update Summer 2009

Well, been a while since updating. Looks as though Facebook has taken over the postings but I will post a few pics and announcements here. Matt graduated from high school and I graduated from Texas State with my BA in English and a Honors minor. I am heading to grad school at TxState to study Tech Comm and Literature and Matt is going to San Antonio Community College then eventually to Texas State to study communication design - Art. Not much else happening. Justin becomes a Jr in HS and is learning electric guitar. Dave is still busy with church, just finished a really busy 2 weeks of VBS. The kids and I drove to Chicago for a grad party for Matt and visiting family, now back in the 108 degrees Texas heat. Ugggh. More posts and pics later.

Happy Holidays, 2009!

About time I made another post. Here are some pics from our trip to Chicago. I drove alone with kids, and Dave joined us Christmas helping to drive home after the New Year. I had a great alone time with the kids and made it in one piece. We had crazy weather: snowstorm (4 inches), below zero temperatures, ice storms, sleet, a thunderstorm, and even woke up one morning to flooding in my parents basement. My brother Gary joined us for a few days after Christmas. We had a cold trip downtown to the Field Museum and Millenium Park and went ice skating on New Years Eve. Here are a few pics from our trip.
