I should start journaling again - just a quick post to keep this page alive. Yesterday was Heather's last day of middle school and James' last day of elementary school. Mom came into town for the awards ceremonies. James won a free fish - we ended up at the pet store, and now they all want a prarie dog. James got an Oboe today - yet another instrument - we now have clarinet, saxophone, chello, guitar, uke, pianos ... and Autumn wants a violin. House full of noise-makers!
