Double Whammy Sick Day

I already had a doctor's appointment scheduled for this afternoon, so scheduled to be off of work from lunch on...

Last night, both Kelsey and Alex were complaining about not feeling well, sore throats, congestion, you know the drill. Kelsey had herself convinced she has the swine flu, so we had to look up the symptoms online to convince her that she was not struck with the dreaded disease. (She's still not convinced).

Both girls had to be in school today for PSSA testing, so filled with cold and cough medicine...out the door they go. Wasn't long before the first text message is received "Mom can you pleeeeaaasseee pick me up after PSSA's". Needless to to the school I go and both girls were home and back in bed by 10:00 this morning.

They were given strict instructions to keep their boogied-up tissues to themselves and to cough only in their own sleeves. I soooo don't want it!

First Mowing Day of the Season...

Today we officially cut all of the grass at the farm for the first time of the season. This is a picture of the "front yard". It takes one person 5 to 6 hours to cut all of the grass. What a chore! Plus, it was 90 degrees today. Summer showed up full force out of nowhere for a bit!

Then Noel put up two birdhouses right outside of my computer room so I can birdwatch while I work. It is National Bird Day do something nice for our feathered friends!

Sadie gaurded the area for intruders.

Busy Week!

Work was crazy, our schedules were hectic and we were very glad for the weekend to get here! Friday night consisted of Kelsey's final prom dress fitting and then off to a charity basketball tournament. Allan played in the tournament, so we were there to cheer him on. Unfortunately, his team lost their first game, but we're hoping they win today. Now, how in the world did they lose with form like this?

That's ok, we'll get 'em next time!

Well, like I to Kutztown University today to check it out! It's my Alma Mater, so it was a day full of memories for me. Allen went with us and we enjoyed a lovely day walking around campus and poking our heads into the Student Union, etc. Lunch on the way home was yummy too!

Birthday Girl!

So Kelsey turned seventeen yesterday. How in the world did that happen? In one year, she will be an adult. I truly can't believe it. I am very proud of her and the fine young lady she has become. We are starting our college tours on Friday. Wow. Before I know it, she'll be out on her own. I miss her already.

The Wiz!!

Tonight was opening night for Shamokin Area High School's "The Wiz". Alex played several parts, including a munchkin. All of the kids did such a great job and put on a terrific show! Here's a few pictures:

It really was so much fun!
