Only 96 days until Christmas!

Man! How is it that I'm always behind on these things!?

Kristen & Ben's wedding was a blast! I have pictures somewhere...

Then last week was busy. Ethan has had three games (1 win, 2 losses) so far.

The kids were over this past weekend and we were non-stop. Farewell party at Cathy's for Ramir, Discovery Park stuff, PJ helping his buddy move, a BBQ at Kelly & Matt's place, then cleaning, yardwork, laundry...the whole nine yards. PHEW!

This coming weekend is blessedly less busy. I think we're rearranging the basement. Woohoo!

This is gonna be lonnnnnnnggggggg!

PJ took Megan and Ethan to the Library of Congress (his new job) on Monday, 8/21. They just ran around and had lunch there.

On Saturday, 08/26, PJ went skydiving again. It's not really my cup of tea, but he had fun. He goes to a place called SkyDive Virginia. Here are some pics from the trip.

Trisha came to hang out with me while PJ was skydiving. We talked about wedding stuff and also went to the Discovery Park Movie Night and helped sell hamburgers and hotdogs. Then she and I went to Cathy and Cesar's house and hung out until the wee hours of the morning. Sunday, we all recuperated. I took Rumor with me to get Ethan and then we went to PetSmart. Now Rumor has a name tag!

On Tuesday, 8/29, at 930, Ethan had to go for a Tetnus booster…now required for all kids before 6th grade in VA. And at 430, the dogs had a check up. Well, Rumor had the check up. Polo had his eye examined and Echo had a little bump looked at. It was quite an adventure to take all three dogs to the vet! LOL. Rumor weighs 28 lbs and got another distemper booster. She also needs to keep gaining weight. Polo weighs 32 lbs (the little porker!) and his eye appears okay and Echo weighs 23 lbs and her little cyst appears to be nothing big.

On Sunday, Sept 3, we had a block party with all the neighbors. It turned out really well! We had two bands play and a DJ. We’re definitely doing it again next year!

The first day of school came and went without incident. Ethan looks ready for sixth grade, huh? He’s playing percussion this year and we just got his instrument.

The baseball game schedule is on the calendar. Ethan's first game is 9/13 at 6pm. All games are at Pioneer Field.

The Discovery Park build is just over a month away. We still have a lot to do on the food committee! AGH! We still need a lot of volunteers!

Tomorrow, Sept 9, we have Ben & Kristen’s wedding! It’ll be fun. I’ll post pics.

Oh…and this just in, we scored tickets for Aerosmith & Motley Crue for September 30! PJ is stoked! He’s taking Joe to visit Christopher Newport University in the morning and then we’re all heading to the concert in the evening. Yippee! I *heart* Aerosmith!
