So we are gearing up for summer...NYC, school of religion, softball, gymnastics, St. Louis, Lake of the Ozarks and for me...work, work, work. I am trying to pick up extra shifts when I can. The three boys down the street will be sitting for us while we perform our adult responsibilities. Evan mostly and the girls are thrilled. I am sure Garrett and Austin will get in some hours too. They are great kids and we are blessed to have them. The girls love them.
That's it for now...

We had a great Easter. We went to St. Louis to visit Jim's parents and family. It is always great to see everyone and the kids love seeing their cousins. Jim's brother John and his wife Becky are expecting another baby. We are sure excited about that. We are traveling to New York in June for my sister Robin's wedding. We are really excited and plan on going early to see the sights of New York.
Catherine ended her basketball season and softball is starting. She has missed several practices to rain and our snow which is unusual for this time of year. Although this is her first time playing softball, she is really looking forward to it. She is loving school and doing great.
Caroline had a gymnastics meet today and got a medal, three first place ribbons and a second place ribbon. She is very proud of them and very willing to show them off. Starting in the summer she is going to be on a pre-competative team. We are going to trial it for the summer and see how she likes it. She loves school as well and loves that she is learning to read. She is doing great.
Jameson is in temporairly in Hawaii working for the same company as he was in San Diego. He was doing so well in sales that they sent him there to try to boost their sales. The mall he is working in is on the beach and so he will call the girls and tell them that he sees a dolphin or whale jumping out of the water. We are all jealous of him and his really rough job (or at least the scenery part of it). He is doing well and we are really proud of him.
That is all of the updates as far as the kids. As for Jim and I the rest is status quo. Working and trying to keep up with the kids.
Hopefully the next post won't be 2 months from now. :)

one I like. The whole office is great.
As you can see, Catherine had a great basketball game saturday. She played against two of her friends which makes it more challenging. It was a great game. Really close at times and both teams played well. Grandma and Grandpa came to cheer Catherine on.
Caroline is doing well. Today she is going to a Daisy Scout meeting with a friend of hers from school. Maybe she will want to join now.
Jim went to St. Louis this past weekend. His dad is home from rehab after his knee replacement. He is doing well. Thanks for all your prayers and well wishes.
Jameson is doing well in Cali. He is trying to decide if he should come home and go to KU or just what to do at this point in his life. Time will tell.

Jameson stayed in San Diego for Christmas. We sure missed him. He went to Las Vegas for New Years. It is a good thing that "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas". Not sure I really want to know what really happened. What I do know is that he had a great time and won a little money.
Happy New Year!! We had a wonderful Christmas. We were very blessed to receive many gifts this year. Not only "stuff " but the joy of giving to others. We adopted a family and had a lot of fun trying to give them a great Christmas. We got to visit with Rachel and her friend Josh. We exchanged gifts with grandma, grandpa and Aunt Rachel before Christmas. We went to St. Louis on Christmas day to visit the Szukalski side of the family. We did not hear from the girls the entire trip due to wonderful gifts from Santa. They listened to their Ipods and played Nintendo DS. While in St. Louis we got to spend a lot of time with the Peters and John, Becky, Hannah and Faith. Faith is getting so big. She has cute chubby cheeks. She looks like a little angel. She has to be one of the happiest babies I have seen. We had a great visit. Jim will be going back because his dad is having a knee replacement on the 6th of January. Please pray for him, the family and the people in the hospital performing the surgery and caring for him.
For New Years Eve, the girls and I watched tv, ate pizza and watched the ball drop in New York (twice). I had so much fun spending time with my girls.
