A Great Week

Good Sunday evening to you. The past week seems to have passed by in a blur. Here's a partial list of what's been happening in our lives.

On Monday, we attended Kaitlyn's wedding shower at church and it was so nice. Games, gifts, good food, and great friends made it very special.
Kaitlyn finished packing up all of her belongings this week. Alan rented a U-haul trailer and they drove to Missouri yesterday. Today they moved it all into the apartment. I will look forward to their return tomorrow evening. I don't envy their 10-hour drive.
Here's a picture that Kaitlyn sent to me from the road yesterday. ☻

Yesterday I volunteered at Bryan's band festival. I worked an intersection with a barricade, blocking traffic from entering the parade route. I only encountered one rude person - a teenager who was pretty ticked off when he couldn't get his truck through. He left in a huff, squealing the tires of his truck all the way. Ha! ☻The festival was good. Fifteen great bands all in one place = great fun.
Yesterday evening we attended a friend's birthday party/BBQ. It was a lot of fun. Jadyn and I felt so tired at bedtime. I don't even think she moved much after she hit the pillow.

We've had two evenings within the last week or so when we've played a board game with the family. We're so glad we've had time to do this, before Kaitlyn moves away. It's something our family enjoys a lot.

We're still getting things accomplished for the wedding. Phone calls, errands, etc. The wedding is less than 2 weeks away now. I am so excited!

There seems to be a constant stream of laundry. There's not too much more than usual, but Bryan's activities keep me busy. Wash Arby's uniform, wash marching band T-shirts, socks, gloves, repeat, on pretty much a daily basis. Band season will soon be over. Just 1 more parade. Whew!
Here's a special picture. Jadyn picked this up in Kaitlyn's room and decided to put it on her head. They sent this to my phone. Wow. Here's Bryan, outside the restaurant we went to a week ago. I wish I was this agile.

Countdown to the big day! And... as to the photo sent over the iphone... Seinfeld coined the "bro," perhaps Jadyn could coin the term... never mind, not appropriate. But it would make a good pair of earmuffs.

Sounds like a busy but fun week! I know what you mean about the laundry! Wash soccer uniform and then wash it again the next day! Sarah can get a couple wearings out of her soccer uniform but not Johnny- PU!

I am excited to see wedding pics on your blog!

I want this agility too!


what a fabulous time you are having preparing for the wedding. I am sure it is bitter/sweet.

Looking forward to lots of pictures.

So glad your daughter's bridal shower went well. I'm sure that the trip that she took with her Papa will be a wonderful memory for the two of them! Enjoy your time with each other!:)
