We're Baaaaaaacccckkkk!

So after several requests from people in the last few days, I will start blogging again.

We have been VERY busy since I last wrote to you in June. Here are some of the highlights:

1) Jack had his tonsils out. That made for a ROUGH 2 weeks, as he did not/would not/could not really eat or drink. Not even ice cream. So our little guy became a littler guy when he lost 7 pounds over the course of 2 weeks.

2) Our little guy got the OK from the doctor to be active again and started FOOTBALL CAMP! He got suited up with a helmet, and pads, and cleats in the 90 degree heat for full contact tackle camp! He told the coach it was the best week of his life. He was hot, sweaty, sore, tired and SUPER HAPPY! He did a great job, but has to put on some weight to be ready for the fall football season. Go Rockville Bears!

3) Stacey finished up her 15th year of teaching with Montgomery County and is now half-way to retirement! She also took a week long graduate class to be certified to teach AP Literature - a college level course taught in the high school. It was a rough week and continues to be a busy summer as she reads the 10 novels, 8 short stories and bazillion poems to be ready in August.

4) Stacey also had to buy new clothes as she no longer fits in 22, 20, 18 or 16. She sold all those sizes at the yard sale and bought 14s. She is down a total of 40 pounds this year. 40 more to go, but the running she is doing to get ready for the 5K on September 2nd will help with that. Stacey now says she will always be a member of Weight Watchers and looks forward to making her weight goal.

5) Jay has been AWOL at home a lot recently because of a busy work schedule. We did all take time out to do some fun things like:


A Frederick Keys Game

A trip Kennywood

and some crabbing

Look here soon for the debrief on Janey's week at diabetes camp. We dropped her off on Sunday and she will be home Saturday. We miss her but know she is having a BLAST!!!! Jack says this week without Janey is his second favorite week of the year. Ah, sibling rivalry at its best.

Speaking of Janey, she has been riding Sunny every week and is doing a great job. He is a kind and gentle horse and Janey keeps asking if we can lease or buy him - every girl wants her own horse, I guess. She has walked, trotted, jumped and cantered on him and has only fallen off twice. This makes Janey happy and irritated - you see a "real rider has to fall off 100 times to be a real rider" and she has 98 more to go.

So, as you can see, we have been busy and having fun. TTYS!
