Choose Life

H1, H2, & Big Boy Life on the (L)edge

Begun in the aftermath of Katrina, this blog was a way to keep family and friends updated as the family struggled to return to a semblance of normalcy. Now, more than four years later, the memories are still strong, the family is, to some extent, scattered. However, life did go on, and this is our story.

It's 1 AM... Do You Know Where Your Kids Are?

It’s been quite a weekend! We drove to NOLA on Thursday, after work, so we arrived at around midnight. I’m still trying to catch up on the sleep we missed that night!

Friday morning started out with the Holy Name of Mary School awards Mass at 8:30 AM. Linda went and watched Ian get awards and honors and a straight A report card. Way to go, IAN!!!! We’re really proud of you!!

Friday evening was BB’s dance recital. She was really cute, and the evening was really entertaining. The recital had 37 dances of varying ages and abilities, but all were truly enjoyable to watch. BB was in two dance routines. After a long night, she was really tired, but wanted to keep on dancing. She got a bit upset when we told her she had to go home.

Saturday we met with a couple that is getting married the end of July for wedding preparation. They are a very nice couple and we wish them all the best.

Afterward we went to a Vietnamese restaurant with KenEllie for lunch. I tried something called a tapioca drink. It was chocolate and coffee and pretty tasty, but the tapioca was an unexpected experience. It was weird because the tapioca wasn’t small and kind of smooth, like tapioca pudding. It was lumps, about the size of a piece of Kix cereal, and it was chewy. Very strange to suck up a couple of those through a large straw!

Saturday evening we went to a Bride and Groom shower for KenEllie. It was a small, staid affair as you will see from the photos. Each guest was given an assigned time out of a 24 hour day, and their gift was supposed to be time appropriate. It was really an interesting concept and thought provoking, as well, for some of those times!!

We got to see our friends Keith and Chris at the shower which was especially nice. We have been extremely close over the years, but lately haven’t been able to get together much at all, so it was an ideal time to catch up on what’s going on. Hopefully we can make this the start of many more get togethers in the future!

And speaking of friends, Mick and Bev stopped by briefly to drop off their gift, but they were watching grandson, Anthony, so couldn’t stay. We’ll be having lunch with them, and with the Patti and Jerrod, today, before we head back to Memphis.

Time for a cup of “joe” and to get ready for church. We pray to Our Lady of Prompt Succor for safety during this hurricane season. We pray that you are all blessed with good health and happiness.
