Well, I hate to say it, but we are still not in our groove. Tomorrow is a new day... kids off to play with the Maioranos in the AM, so hopefully I will have a nice run and then run some errands.

I hope that we hear from you soon, and hope that you are okay!

Hi Shannon,
We all hope that you made it to Brazil safely, as we have yet to hear from you.
Today was hectic and stressful. The kids fought a lot today - everyone was edgy.
Basketball was fun - Elsie had a game at 9am - we really need to help her learn the game (:
We went to your parents after a mid-morning bagel break, and hung out until lunchtime. Pa and I got Wendy's for lunch, and when we got back, Cassy was there. She's in town for a visit.
Your Dad and Cassy came to Aubrey's 3pm game - that was nice!
Kay Yow passed away peacefully today. So sad.

I think that's all. I am absolutely beat, but going to clean off this desk before I go to bed.

We miss you a lot - looking forward to hearing from you!

Saying our Goodbyes

We were all sad to see Daddy leave us for a while, but excited at this new adventure and what it may bring to all of us in the future.

Kids go in for a group hug after our giant last dinner celebration! (Shannon leaves for Brazil the next day)

Our Family Blog

This blog is mainly created for Shannon... so that I may keep him updated on the every day fun (and not so fun) that occurs around here while he is in Fortaleza.
We will miss him SO much.
