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.

Let's see... Kenny's birthday was last Wednesday and I tried to post something but couldn't get it to work. So now I'm a week late wishing him a Happy Birthday. But that's ok, 'cause Ellie's cousin got married last weekend so KenEllie were wrapped up in pre-wedding stuff and we didn't get to celebrate his birthday anyway. We're going to do that this week. So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KENNY!!!!

Speaking of KenEllie, they're getting ready to move. We're going to miss them. It was really nice having them practically next door. We didn't get to see enough of them even then. I think I was extra sensitive to trying not to seem like a pushy parent, since they were right next door. In retrospect we probably could have just "dropped in" more, but I was trying to let them "live their own lives", so generally waited for an invitation before going over. Oh well, water under the bridge, I guess. Live and learn. Still, we love them heaps and bunches, and will definitely miss them.

H2 qualified at the shooting range last week! He seems to be doing very well at the academy and has made some friends there who he hangs with on weekends. Oddly enough, one of them is named Kenelly, which makes for some confusion, let me tell you.

BB sold 404 boxes of Girl Scout cookies, the most in her Brownie troop, and will receive SEVERAL awards for it! Way to go, BB!!

Ian got 5 A's and 1 B for his exams. Great work!!

Both S2 and H2GF's mom are doing better. Thanks for all your prayers! They DO work, you know.

H1/DIL1 have embarked on a joint venture that will be a bit of a struggle for them. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

And oh, yeah. Happy St. Patrick's Day!! Now go drink some green beer or something.

God bless!
