WOW, babies, babies and more babies isn't even the right description.....CONGRATS to all those young patents and new babies.....Just remember that Great Aunt Beck's Babysitting service is available every weekend.
Well, I hate to copy an old phrase but it seems like while all the "young" families are busy filling their "nests" ...... this family is beginning to empty theirs.

That's right, only 16 days of High school left. I am reminded daily. Usually at 6:53 am each morning as Katie rushes out to the bus, late again. Isn't it funny that after 12 years, she still can't remember to eat breakfast, what time the bus really does comes, or what I did with her books, but can tell you at the drop of a hat how many days of school are left? So the count down is on and then Welcome to the world of college life. I now have a new respect for all of you who have already been where I am getting ready to go. Can you all say FASFA? Well, I can say it but don't ask me to understand it!!! And what makes one book worth $180.00? (by the way, June 16th is the big graduation party.)

On the other side of our "proverbial nest" ... Megan's softball season is literally in full swing with her all-time favorite coach of the year... Her "Daddy". Games are on Tuesday and Thursdays, practice is on Sundays and one other night, yet to be announced....and will be held at my house (Lucky Becky) So far only one person has made a trip to the E.R. and that was the other coach... contrary to whatever you've heard; softballs when coming at you, bouncing off of your temple are not soft. But don't worry, it wasn't anything that 15 stitches couldn't take care of. And NO it wasn't me or Megan who hit him! Anyway, not such a bad season afterall!!

So over the next few months we will all be at the softball fields or on the "corner" selling my wares to pay for those books. Hope to see you all on the 16th.

Hello all! I just came across this when I was checking my old e-mail account. Glad to see messages from the whole gang. Everything is good on our end. Married life is going great. Adam is still working his crazy hours at the station, but loves what he does (and I'm pretty proud of him too). Kristin and I have decided we will never be normal with our fireman and policeman! The school year is really flying by. Four more weeks and I will already say farewell to my sixth graders. I'm not sure where I'll end up next year, I'll keep you posted if I ever find out!! I'm also starting my second year as the j.v.volleyball coach for Louisville. I had a great time last season and can't wait to get underway again. This month we'll have had our house for a year already. We're excited to get outside this summer and do some major yard work. Adam signed us up for a co-ed summer golf league which is sure to provide some great entertainment. Any golf tips would be much appreciated (Rookie is an overstatement)! Hope all is well with everyone! I'll be sure to stop by the site often!
