Well, another year has rolled around and I've been a MIA blogger and a MIA knitter. I have no excuse about the blogging. Just laziness. I have been knitting, but just not finishing anything. We have, however, had some momentous family occasions since my last post, so let me get you all caught up!
First, in August 2012, our oldest son Nick married his lovely bride, Meagan. We gained a lovely daughter and had a fabulous time at their lovely wedding.
Then the school year began.
I loved my students, but it was not a good year.
Enough said about that as it will be over in a couple of short weeks.
Peter, one of our twins, enlisted in the Air Force and went to BMT in January. It was difficult not being in communication with him for eight weeks, but we cherished those rare calls.
While Peter was at BMT, his dear Granny, my sweet mom-in-law, became very ill. All of the family gathered to say our good-byes in March. Her service was a wonderful tribute to her life. She is loved, cherished, and greatly missed.
About a week after Mom's funeral, John, Alex, and I traveled to San Antonio to be with Peter at his BMT graduation. We were so proud of him! He was an expert marksman and an Honor Graduate.
He's just completed the first part of his Technical Training at Keesler AFB in Biloxi, Mississippi. Last Thursday, he moved to Sheppard AFB in Wichita Falls, Texas for the remainder of his training. He'll finish in mid-August. Avionics....that's his field. He hopes to learn the location of his first base assignment in the next few weeks!
Then there's Alex, the other twin brother. He's doing been busy completing his Junior year at GMU and doing this:
That's a quick family update to fill in the gap of the past 11 months. There's a big trip scheduled for this summer, so I'll try to find my blogging groove before then!
