Happy Fall 2006 !

   Those of you who see me on a regular basis...wait on a minute, I'm not sure anyone has been seeing me on a regular basis. But, those of you who see me, will have to stand up for me to the other faithful, but disgusted, disgruntled, disinterested bloggers. I have been crazy busy, and that is a good thing. I remember the days when my busy wasn't so good. Like you, I follow other websites. And, recently, there has been a barrage of relapse and loss among the wonderful children afflicted with this disease. One mother put it best in her effort to keep her chin up.   She said, "Just what you wanted, more frequent updates." So, silence can be golden.  Are you still mad at me?

So, what have we been up to? School for 2 children occupies some of our time. Life makes up for the rest. By the way, Joe says that school is boring.  But, Joe only says that because he thinks it's cool to say that.  Last night, he was talking on the phone and said that the worst part of school is homework, and the best part is recess with his friends.   Secretly, he likes it and is doing quite well. As for the homework thing, he gets one assignment per week revolving around the letter for the week, so, I don't know what he is talking about. Gina, on the other hand, has nightly assignments in 3rd grade, and she is sure to tell him about it. They are both adjusting well to the busy routine. Weekends are no time to rest either. We try to go and just appreciate the gifts in each day.

Last weekend, we traveled to Michigan Stadium for the game. It was the most perfect day. The weather was awesome. And, it was former player day, so Jeff got to go through the tunnel and be recognized on the field. The kids LOVED it and Jeff relived some glory days with old friends. There were enough of them. The attendance was another record of 111,344 fans. It was truly amazing. As we sat among the Blue, Joey said to me, "Mommy, it's so good to be with OUR PEOPLE!" I have told that story a million times since. It was so cute. He has found that friends are important in this new phase of his life. And, I am really enjoying this journey with him.

The other night he said, "Mommy, I am going to miss you when you die. But, you know what? There is a good thing about dying. The good thing is that God gets to see all of the friends he made again up in Heaven." I wonder what it would be like if we all looked forward to that day, and then, made the most of our time here. I am going to try that. And, I am going to be grateful for each moment. I love you all, and I'll try to keep my friends happy. I promise not to be such a stranger. Til next time....
