Summer in Full Swing

We've taken all of July off from school. It has been lots of fun! After returning from Camp Sunshine, we have been just hanging out and having fun. We did have a few medical things to attend to, but July has been pretty slow in that area.

We're getting ready for the next school year and the boys' bone marrow biopsies next month. They will have auditions for Cheaper by the Dozen in a few weeks and will work on the play through early spring.

Matthew has big plans for his pro-life group. The group has planned a car wash fundraiser for August 29th. This morning he went to a pro-life breakfast with a few of the Triad Students for Life members. It was a conference/fundraiser for a local doctor who works on pro-life issues around the world. Busy morning.... as soon as that was over, he had to rush over to serve at a funeral Mass along with Joseph. Sean still does not like funeral Masses. Can't blame him for that!

Next week, Matthew and Sean are volunteering for our parish Vacation Bible School. Sean will get service hours for his confirmation next year. He's not a natural volunteer like Matthew! Luckily altar serving also counts toward service hour requirements.

Sean is also preparing for the honors recital in October. Since he received a Superior rating at the state piano competition, he was invited to play at the honors recital. Of course, he and Joseph are both busy with summer baseball, too. Of course, Matthew is gearing up to start tackle football season. Once summer winds down, we will be asking where it went!

I finally switched back to blogger because it is easier to use and I can post pictures and not have to delete them later because of storage space issues. I liked the look of the other blog, but it just isn't as user friendly.
