Summer is (almost) Starting!
Andy's last day of school is tomorrow. The two very best days of school are the first one and the last one. I don't think he quite realizes that he'll be done with school for the whole summer. Emmy's birthday is this Saturday and a friend of hers is having a birthday party that day. This year Emmy finally gets to go to this girl's party because Emmy isn't having a party. Their birthdays are so close that every year their parties have been on the same day. Emmy will be having a birthday dinner this Sunday at Nana and Grampa's house. She's very excited. My brother EJ is coming to visit for a couple of days. We're looking forward to that. As of now he's still driving. He's bringing his girlfriend so we'll get to meet her. I don't know anything about her, and I have no idea what's been told her about me. Lately there's been a lot of visiting going on. One of my sisters was here this past weekend with her three kids. Last night two of my nieces and nephews came to town for a month long visit. They are staying with Nana and Grandpa, so we'll see them frequently. I'm not going anywhere till August when I go on vacation to Indiana. Two of my siblings live there and most of my family will be there for a family reunion. The kids and I are really looking forward to it. As of now, Derek will not be going with us. It's been a few years since he's come to a reunion with me. Once I went to his family's reunion without him. It's not that he doesn't want to go, it's just that it never seems to work out. Secretly I think he thinks we're all a bunch of weirdos. Well, maybe it's not so secret. Anyway, that's my update for now. We're enjoying the niece and nephew, ages 10 and 9. Maybe I should take pictures of fun things so their parents can see them. I'm sure their being greatly missed.
