Small Album

Posted by Scott at 08:20 PM

Photos - When we ordered our dining room set, the bad news was that it would arrive the day after my folks left. I'd promised my mom that I'd take a few pictures so that she could see what it looks like in the dining room. Click on the boys below to go to the album.

One of the pictures shows a tree that has fallen in our yard. Currently it is still held suspended by two nearby trees. In true boyhood, drive-your-mother-crazy fashion, the boys keep walking over there to stand in awe underneath it. A tree service comes tomorrow to help us with it.

Today - We did have gorgeous weather today. Sunny with temperatures hitting 56°F. This afternoon I worked on all the boys' bikes and prepped the trampoline for another season of jumping. Today Abby got an early birthday present of a new bigger bicycle. Claire also picked up a set of inline roller blades. Somewhere between the bikes, trampoline, and roller blades, I think we've just set ourselves up for a visit to a nearby hospital.

Birthday - Happy Birthday to Tom who turns …mumble-mumble… tomorrow!


The room looks gorgeous! I think you guys have great decorating sense, and it is so clean right now too! I'm a little jealous- it's been a long time since we had a empty room to decorate!
I can't blame the boys for being fascinated by that tree! Cool!
We had a beautiful day here too, except it is so muddy from recent rain.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

That tree looks awesome. Tell the boys to get a rope and pull the top down, they would have a great catapult.

Hey Scott, I'm glad to hear that you were able to see your folks for a visit, even if it was a short one. How is your Mom doing? I'm hoping that since she's traveling, that means treatments are progressing well.

The dining room looks nice, though your server could use a bigger hard drive and some blinking lights... 8)

Hi Will,

My mom's doing pretty well. She'll start the final phase of her treatment very soon. Both she and my dad had a nice visit. I think seeing the other half of her grandkids did a lot to bolster her mood. She really missed them and they missed seeing family too!

I got a big kick out of your comments about the server. Funny, even being the computer geek that I am, I didn't make the connection between a dining room server and a compute server until you mentioned it. Thanks for giving Michelle and I a chuckle during breakfast this morning.

BTW, have you listened to Daily Breakfast #90 yet? An email I wrote to Fr. Roderick was read "on the air" (so to speak). I'll write a little more about it tonight when I have the time.

For now, "coffee break's over... back on your heads!" ;-)
