This is a post I have been wanting to do for a couple of weeks now. My life has been very busy lately. We have had several special and/or important events in our family, and I have not had time to do justice to any of them, much less include pictures. So, here is the last two weeks of my life:
My oldest son Joseph and my daughter Rachael were in the spring musical "Peter Pan". Joseph was Mr. Darling and Rachael was a pirate.
My middle son, Daniel, was inducted into the National Junior Honor Society. He is my 3rd child to receive this distinction. The middle picture is him with his buddies from the football team.
Just to show what an outstanding student/athlete he is, I snapped these two pictures of Daniel and his girlfriend Stephanie at their last soccer game. Their teams played each other and at one point they were opposing goalies. Stephanie is drawing on Daniel's shirt because we couldn't find his official team shirt, so we had a makeshift one.
This is Rachael's latest "headshot" for auditions. I included it here because she has been trying out for a lot of summer shows, and because I think she's beautiful!
As you may have read earlier this week, last weekend I got to steal away for a weekend with Steven, and we drove up to Chicago for dinner and sightseeing. We had a terrific Chicago-style pizza and parked the car for a walk on the Navy Pier. The one of me asleep Steven took when I got sleepy sitting with him in the truck while he was blogging.
I love this guy so much!
Finally, we have Aaron's First Communion. Doesn't he look great in his jacket and tie?
These last two were taken yesterday. After 2 long weeks, Aaron finally got his stitches out. The one of him in the blue shirt is him waiting in the doctor's office. After it was all over, we went home, changed into more comfortable clothes and went out to eat. The cut has healed nicely and we have a much more relaxed boy!
So, there you have it. My life for the last two weeks.
Have a great Thursday!
