Time for some football!

So much missed

well it has been too long since i i have too much to update!!
lets start from the beginning....
Just as school was starting we had a really weird day....
Noah was at a friends house and got bit by their dog

while we were at the doctor getting a couple stitches i get a call from Taylor
who was at Rich's softball game and turned her ankle when she was walking up the stairs
so I left Noah in the good car of the doctor and I ran to get Taylor' a boot for 5 weeks
then not just a few weeks later, Somehow (no idea how) Quade Broke his arm.
He woke up one morning and was complaining about it hurting so Rich took him in and it was Broken. He was in a cast for just 3 weeks though.
So now...hopefully, everyone is on the mend and the "they come in three's" is over at our house!

My sister Lynn and I ran away from home. She retired this year from the police dept. and needed a celebration vacation so we put our heads together and decided to go to St. Maartin, Virgin Islands
It was fun but most was relaxing. No schedule just relax and relax some more
here are some photos from that trip....

Lynn kick back on the beach

love the sunsets

we went on a horseback ride

and we went on a sunset cruise around the island

it was beautiful!

the next day we went on an all day snorkel trip

this is the little private island we stopped at for snorkeling..way better then Hawaii!

the water was soooo amazingly blue

These were taken the last night before we flew home

Good bye St Maartin!

After we got home I got a call from Brittnee letting me know that she had had a miscarriage
so that weekend I left to go spend a few days helping her out while she recovered
it was a pretty traumatic experience and it will be a slow recovery for her

just before i left to go to Britt's, I got a call from Hayden and Charlotte with Great news!
they are engaged !!!!
We love Charlotte and are excited to add her to our family.
No date has been set yet.

Then last weekend we went to the fall festival parade to watch Noah march with the Young Marines
he Joined the Young Marines a few weeks ago and he really loves it

Also that weekend Julian went to Home Coming...

Julian is off at havasupi with the other exchange students hiking this weekend...
so...i think this brings us up to date
Next up...Ireland!!!
then a meeting in Philly
and then Mexico for Thanksgiving!!

I will be adding some of Noah and Sawyer's football pictures next....
stay tuned
