Easter




Easter Sunday we had a great day at home. Tom had the day off of course. We slept in, then had brunch with liege waffles. Then we spent the afternoon outside cleaning up the yard and garden for planting. We also planted some new lilac bushes, it was perfect yard work weather. We tried to teach Sirius to play fetch with a frisbee. He didn’t care about the frisbee no matter how hard we tried, he just likes big sticks.
Of course there were also Easter baskets, too much candy, and some lazy movie watching on the couch in the evening. We didn’t make a big traditional Easter meal either, in fact we made a big cheesy pizza pie instead. It was perfect! I hope you had a wonderful Sunday too!

My Graduate…

I know I’ve been a very bad blog poster for the month of June, but with very good reason…my son Kurtis graduated from high school! It’s been a whirlwind of activity around here. We had the graduation ceremonies for both him and his cousin Skyler who also graduated this year.
Then there was graduation parties, and a visit to his college campus. I am not sure if I mentioned it on the blog yet, but Kurtis is going to Penn State. We are so proud of him, and while it feels really far to me (3 hours away) I know it could be a lot further.
We had his new student orientation and got to check out State College PA, we had never been there before. I’m sure Thomas and I will be making many trips that way in the next year (first year students cannot have cars) so I’d love to hear of anything anyone recommends in the area.
