Long time...

I has been weeks since I posted. I just haven't felt much like writing anything up. Things have been crazy all summer. Now we are only 2 weeks away from the start of school and I am wondering where the summer went!

First and foremost, I want to assure anyone reading this that we have not submerged underneath the Mississippi, La Crosse or Black Rivers. Nor have we slid down off the bluffs in a mudslide. Even though we have received nearly 17 inches of rain in just over 48 hours, we are still standing on solid ground.

Anthony is doing well in Iraq and should be leaving there sometime in September. We hope to have him home by Christmas. He sounds older and wiser somehow. I guess the Marines will do that to a person.

Lucas has moved on. He is no longer living at home and has found a new girlfriend. He causes more grey hairs than any of my other children. He has a new job, but who knows how long that will last.

Meghan is 13 and acting every bit the teenager. All she talks about is boys, boys, boys. Oh well, that will end someday (not!).

As for school, I am looking forward to it. I have some interesting classes this semester so it should be fun. I am also getting a new laptop since I finally crashed the old one for good. Bah! So much money on a new toy!!

Anyway, if anyone is still checking this page, let me know. I'll try and get back here as often as I can.
