Vintage Prints

My mom recently got her hands on an old photo of my grandfather. I think he's the little one in the picture.

Big Load!

That's our driveway. Five cubic yards of topsoil and 3 cubic yards of wood chips...the backyard is getting a makeover this weekend. But iyiyiyiyiy! My muscles are sore just thinking of all the work we're going to do!

Echo has Whipworms. How she got them, we have no idea...especially since Polo doesn't have them...but they're both getting a shock treatment this week (and then again in 2 weeks) and we have to change their monthly heart worm meds (from Tri-heart to Interceptor). The good thing about the new dirt and sod is that we'll cover up most of the eggs since they are hard to kill. I also have to be vigilent about scooping in the back yard (ugh).

We have a busy weekend planned. Sam has a winter guard event. Megan has homework. Ethan has baseball. We're hitting the hot tub expo to try to find a new hot tub cover and then we're spreading all that dirt and the wood chips. I hope to have more pictures of all the progress.

Have a great weekend!

Baseball Schedule Posted

Check out the family calendar...practice dates/times and game dates/times are now posted!

I've been lax on remember to use my camera for anything lately...I'll try to get back in the habit!

For instance, Ethan cut off all his hair tonight (mostly by himself with just a little help from me). He wouldn't let me take pictures though. :P

Happy St. Patrick's Day

I've been really behind in posting...not a lot to announce, I guess. Anyway, Happy St. Patrick's Day.

And here's some news:

The CNU Marching Captains will be participating in the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade! They’re one out of only 12 bands selected nationwide to perform, so this is quite an honor for Joe, the band, and the school.

Once they march in the Philly parade, then can then be eligible for the Macy's Parade. Maybe we'll see him march there in 2009!

Congrats to Joe and CNU!

Death by Coughing

I have a stupid chest cold. I don't have a whole lot of congestion...except for what's in my chest. I'm coughing up a lung here.

Ethan found out he's on the Majors Nationals Team this season. Parent meeting on Monday, 3/10.

Sam's guard team is doing pretty well. She and PJ have also been working hard on Algebra and she's doing a lot better in that class!

Megan's family birthday party this past weekend was a success! We gave her dollhouse accessories (furniture and a doll family). She's been playing with it a lot. Soon PJ and Megan will have to finish the roof and there's wallpaper to install now too.

PJ's birthday is this Sunday. He's having a bunch of guys over on Saturday to home-brewing lessons and bratwurst. I'll be finding something else to do. Like cough up a lung... *sigh* *cough*
