Catching up...

Well... I have been a bad blogger... I finally have a few minutes to catch everything up, so here goes...

since I last posted:

We spent a lovely day at Kel's on 6/8/08. Katie and Olivia were keeping cool in the backyard with the water toys.

6/10/08 - Katie's last day 3rd grade- she will certainly miss Mr. Miller. She was overloaded with projects she completed throughout the year.

6/15/08 - Father's Day at Dad's. Kids had a blast in the pool! Katie made Dump Cake all by herself for dessert that night. It was delicious!!!!

June : My tiger lillies finally started to bloom. I LOVE the vibrant color!

6/19/08 - Sean passed his driver's test!!! Because it takes so long to schedule an appointment at the Lancaster Ave. office, he scheduled his test in Lebanon. He thought it was on 6/18/08 @1pm, so Ray took the day off and they drove up there... turns out the appointment was for 6/19/08 @ 9:45am. So, I took the day off to take him up there. I actually got to snap a few photos of him taking the test... sssshhh.. don't tell anyone! His instructor was very sweet. She even gave Sean a tic tac! Here's a picture of Sean taking his first SOLO ride! Needless to say... I have MANY more grey hair now! I am still a nervous wreck everytime he goes out.

6/20/08 - A dear friend and co-worker is moving back home to Norway. This was her going away party. We held it at Happy Landings in Exeter Township. It was a picnic for the staff and their families. Here's a picture of Michelle, me, & Gidget. It was getting late, but I wanted to get a picture of Gidget, Corey, and Olivia. Olivia was getting very tired and didn't want to smile... so, they made SILLY faces!!!

6/21/08 - Katie is a HUGE Phillies fan! Jayson Werth was signing autographs at Vanity Fair, so Daddy took Katie over to meet him. (She got to meet Shane Victorino - the flyin' Hawaiian last year!) She also got to see the Reading Phillies mascot - Screwball and the Philly Phanatic. She also got her face painted. She had a blast!!!

6/21/08 - Sean's graduation party at Nana's and Boompa's. Before everyone got there, Sean and Katie were out by the pool. Katie laid in the same position as her big brother. It was so sweet!! Everyone had a blast swimming and chit chatting. I made Chicken Teryaki (Sean's favorite), potato salad, fruit salad, and ceasar salad (Sean's favorite). We went through 20 lbs of chicken, 2 huge bowls of fruit salad, almost 7 lbs of potato salad, and 3 huge heads of lettuce for the ceasar salad. I must admit... it was tasty!!!

Katie has been attending Bydenwood Day Camp everyday. She LOVES it! She goes hiking and
swimming everyday.

I have been busy scrappin' everyday. I made 2 albums for Gidget's going away party and I submitted some pages and a mini-album for my Design Team Membership at Scraptacular. I also donated a mini album to Save the Memory Crop.

We are on vacation next week. Heading off to Hershey Park on Tuesday with Mike, Michele, Nicole, and Tyler. We are going to Philly on Thursday & Friday for 4th of July.
well... sorry for the long post, but now I think we are caught up!
