Justin's 10!!!!!!

One of the crazier decisions we have made is to get Justin a real drum set....Good thing we don't have neighbors! Hard to believe he is "double-digits"....

Lindsay and Taylor were inducted into the National Honor Society recently. I love this picture!

Emergency Room

Justin had an unfortunate encounter with the dreaded monkey bars during Friday night's football game. They apparently are "slippery little devils"! Thanks to the kindly Doctor, Fire Chief and moms who were at the game ready to help us. (all who apparently used to watch "MacGyver" and made a sling out of what people had in their bags. The good news is that there is no break! We all had on our team's football jerseys, so I am sure we were quite the sight walking in to the hospital. Thank you Jesus for no cast!

First Day of School August '09

The kids roll their eyes every year when I say I want the annual "back to school" picture! Lindsay is a Junior, Taylor is 8th grade, and Justin is in the 4th grade. Lindsay is helping me out with the driving to school this year-which is an odd feeling. We dropped Kyle off at college this past Saturday. He has really nice friends there that we were able to meet. He is staying in a new dorm that is more like an apartment. What a blast he is going to have!

More fun in Chicago...

We went to Navy Pier for the day after taking the train from Crystal Lake. Special surprise, Kristin and the babies were there! We went on a boat ride and saw the beautiful Chicago skyline. Fun Day with the family!


We girls went to see Mary Poppins our first night in Chicago. It was a really fun show. We went out to dinner beforehand...ask me sometime how many adults fit in a revolving door section...funny story!!
