2nd Grade....

Ellie's first day of school...

Breanna meet Ellie at the bus stop and they got on the bus together. They do have the same bus route so they enjoy having each other.
Second graders with their siblings.
Off they go....
Ellie and her teacher Mrs. Mulvey. We hear great things about her....

Happy Birthday!!!!

It was Brad's birthday last week so the girls and I went to his work and decorated his bike and waited for a phone call!!! The girls and I planned this a month ago and they kept the secret. It was a surprise to him.

His favorite strawberry cake....

Fall is fast approaching here in New Hampshire. I noticed some red leaves today on the trees!!! I actually look forward to the fall season. It is my favorite time of year here in New England. It is a great time for visitors! (hint) This last week the girls and I went out to Altamont conv. for the whole time and Brad joined us on the weekend. The Howes were generous to have us stay with them. Always good times together. I will have to post pictures later. That is the happening here. We are enjoying our last week of summer vacation before school starts next Wednesday. Take Care----

Our furry friends...

We love our dogs! Missy is growing and is now four pounds. She was two pounds when we got her. Tucket and Missy are now the best of friends. I really didn't know if that would ever happen. It keeps our house lively.

Brad and I just celebrated our tenth year anniversary. We had honeymooned in Nantucket so we went back for our tenth. We enjoyed a long weekend relaxing and shopping. The Boston Pops with Natalie Cole were there performing on the beach. We were able to get tickets so that was neat to see. We stayed at a really neat inn called The Veranda House. Really quaint and simple. They would serve hot cookies and tea in the afternoon. A really neat touch and of course breakfast. We enjoyed our time and always look forward to going to Nantucket.

Four out of five.....

Tim and Sarah were also at Milford convention. Soooo... we had four out of five us kids at conv. We will have to plan better next time so that we all five are there.
