Catching Up

June 1 brought the joint Open house for the boys. We had about 100 people come. We served pizza, hot dogs, Subway sandwhiches, chips, pretzels, veggie trays, fruit trays & cakes & mints! Each boy got to choose a cake. James chose pina coloda! lol Jm chose raspberry. They were a huge hit! A friend of mine made the mints & since the boys are allergic to " mint" she made them in strawberry & raspberry flavors! Several of my friends helped so I was able to visit with people. It was such a huge blessing!

June 2 was James graduation! I was teary thru lots of it! lol A friend had written me a sweet note that I read 1st thing in the morning so that started the tears. Then one of the scholarships awarded that day was in honor of a friend that passed away several years ago. I didn't know there was a scholarship set up so I was emotional about that.

After graduation we went out to eat @ the restaurant of James choice..Chinese!! lol The guy who was best man @ our wedding was able to come to the ceremony & he was able to stay with us until sun evening. So, that was a great time!

JM's girlfriend was such a blessing during the whole weekend. She arrived on Thurs evening & stayed with us until Sat night. She helped load the cars with things, fixed my hair ( as Jm says, I'm not used to having a girl for these things! lol) helped with any work I needed...she set the table up, helped with decorations, did dishes (PTL!), etc, etc!

June 3rd Dale & I visited with our friend, JM worked & James went to church & hung out with friends.

June 4 I did little ones all day & James recuped! lol Jm had class & did some studying.

June 5 was James orientation @ college. Parents were able to go to. It was a nice day, but long! lol But he got his classes scheduled. He's very excited about school starting. He is taking: math, a required learning center class, English, psychology, computers & yoga (lol).

After orientation, James came home & got ready to go to a friend's graduation open house @ a park. At 8 he called to say he was on his way home..I said OK..he explained that he had gotten hurt & wanted me to not freak when I saw his face! I asked if he could see to drive to which he replied: " Oh yes, my eyes aren't the problem, it's my mouth" We were all waiting outside for him when he arrived home. Dale & I had already gathered things together in anticipation for a hospital run. He showed me his mouth..2 big wholes!l then he explained how that wasn't his only injury @ the was his 3rd! that's when he decided to come on home! lol So, off to ER we went..they x-rayed his ankle & decided it was only sprained. He got 5 stitches in his mouth. We were home by midnight! lol

The last few days I have been with my little grand-nephews. with it being summer & they get bored easily, I started a game of sorts yesterday that so far they love! lol It's a point system. So they are busily earning their 100 points for a food treat! lol 1000 points gets a toy treat..the youngest only has to do 1/2 the points of his brothers..the oldest especially is all about this! The yard & house is more toy free than its been in months! lol The 2ND one has used manners more in 2 days than in 2 weeks! lol

Well, I know there's more but that catches me up somewhat! I tried something new this time since when I type a lot blog spot seems to lose it...I typed this in an e mail & then copied/pasted it! lol Hope this works!
