Our oldest son Fred has been riding 25 miles a week, all in one day, it sounds like a long ride to me, but he says it is not that bad. He called Sunday and told me they took an hour off their time, that is amazing. Wish I could ride along, it sounds like a good workout, but I am not as young as I used to be either, I doubt it would be a good idea to start with 25-26 miles for me LOL.
I am hoping Fred and I can see" Bodies the Exhibition" this weekend, we have been planning to for a while, and it leaves next weekend.
The most exciting news around here came today; our son Terry is getting married on Friday!! He and his fiance' Anna have decided to go to the JOP instead of trying to plan a wedding on a shoestring budget. We are hoping an appointment is available, we will find out tomorrow afternoon. We are not at all certain we will be allowed to go in the office, the website says two witnesses. Tom and I definitely would bring our three little gals, and that puts us way over 2! Plus Anna's parents want to be there too. What can we do? We do not want to miss this very important day either. Maybe they will let us stand in the hallway and participate from there, I do not remember the office being very large. No matter how things turn out Friday (or another day if no appointments are available Friday), we are very happy for Terry and Anna.
We have not seen much of Eric lately, busy time for weddings in the summer, he is the event planner where he works. We saw him and his GF Melissa a few weeks ago and had a nice visit.
Brian is currently in a play, 25th Putnam Country Annual Spelling Bee we have not seen it yet, we are hoping to make it this weekend. The reviews have been really good so far, he said the big review comes out tomorrow or Friday!
Brian comes over twice a week to help us with the girls, it is a huge help for me now too, especially with home schooling. It has been really nice to see more of him too, he is also really busy with work and acting.
Julia is a senior this year, I am still in shock over this, I remember the day the ultrasound showed that I was having my first daughter, the jubilation from the gals in my Step class, and the anticipation of dressing her in PINK, of putting bows in her hair. Today she came home from school with a baseball cap and jeans on, but she also likes pink...
She is still hurting from the car accident she was in January, the driver of teh car overturned and hit a tree. Her knee keeps getting inflamed and she is currently undergoing PT for bursitis and tendinitis. The PT thinks her meniscus is injured, and believes that her therapy will fail and she will need her knee scoped to check for soft tissue injury, I hope she is wrong, I really do.
Amanda has finally decided that drinking water is not all that terrible, I wondered when the incredibly hot Tucson summers would get to her. She does prefer lemonade to water though. We are so excited about her progress with drinking, I have been able to get her to give herself water 5 days in a row now, unheard of a month ago. Now to work on self-feeding, she is still refusing to hold her own spoon. One small step at a time, any bit of progress is celebrated here.
Julia 2001, The main difference between Julia and Meghan? Julia has her dad's eye shape and Meghan has mine. Yes, I also have almond shaped eyes, it is a family trait, only Meghan has eyes like mine. That includes the dark circles and baggies LOL. I always had them; bad allergies to my dad smoking, and no, no one smokes here.
