August 2007

Aight, I'm at work, bored out of my mind, so what better time to update ya'll on what's been going on the last month and some with our little family. It's been quite the summer with lots of laughs, heartaches, driving, food, ice cream....and new kitties (yikes).











That's right, Riley got two (yes two) new Kitties after she came back from visiting her dad's house the beginning of July. She has been begging and pleading for a kitty, since, the beginning of time. Berns told her she could have one after the wedding sometime back in Feb....when we got back from Brazil she reminded us...darn those little kids with good memories. Nonetheless, she loves them and tortures them with great compassion, so it's been fun to have them around (I'm still holding my ground at the fact that I dont like cats though...)








Other than new kitties, Riley is spending her time coloring, riding her bike, swimming, and just being a precious little four year old. A few days ago she decorated herself with stickers from head to toe so that she could be a monster...We couldnt help but laugh. She is hysterical. She has also enjoyed decorating Berns with her make-up kit....I think she is preparing for beauty school...and what a better canidate to practice on than Berns...

Speaking of the "not-feminine-just-wearing-makeup-cause-the-child-made-him" soccer boy, he has spent his time working, and working some more. Starting next week we will no longer see him as he will start coaching the JV high school soccer team, still work at Sherwin Williams, and go to school full time...it was nice having a husband for 3 months.... moohaha. He will graduate December 15th (anyone wanting to come is more than welcome!! Especially Lani with some cookies). He's getting more and more excited about being done with school and entering the "real" world....I however feel extremely old for having a husband that i met in high school and he is now graduating college. We both attended Jessica's high school graduation thinking we needed some canes or wheelchairs when we came to the realization that Jessiy was in 6th grade when we graduated....I think I just heard some cracking in my joints...




I have been spending my time....you guessed right....working. I'm still at the hospital torturing people with needles; but I have also had the joy of choreographing a musical at the Durango Arts Center that opens this week. Adding to that, I didnt have enough dancers, so mom stuck me in some of the dances because I looked "under 19"....I still havent decided if I like that. Nonetheless it's been a very fun experience. Jess gets mad cause I'm making her tap, Celidh (one of my dancers) gets mad cause I make her pretend she's in love with her partner and has to get "cuddly" with him; and Becca (my other dancer) is mad because none of my dances involved eating or lying down....I'm so harsh. Although, I'm not sure I like being one of the dancers either....I find that when you choreograph, you dont really know the dance well enough to dance it....funny how that happens.




In other news...Berns bought me a new car!! It's precious and he's precious. It's a 2007 Nissan Sentra, and it's smarter than I am. Which is why I have decided to go back to school in the next couple weeks. If things go right I should be graduating with a bachelors and a minor is 2 years...yes, it's been forever since i started school....but things are now looking like I'll finally be able to finish---thank heaven for good husbands!


We are all heathy and happy. We've been tossed and trampled on this summer, but all in all we are doing great. Riley is still the same little bundle of laughs, Berns still dances funny, and I'm just Shea....
Until next time.....
loves,
Berns, Shea, and Ri

I LOVED your post! I loved hearing the goings on although I knew most of them since you'd been here to visit. I really loved the pictures. Keep up the blogging please. And hang in there as you both finish school. It will be difficult at times but worth it.

Love you all!

Loved, loved, loved the update! You are so cute and cuddly! BUT, I definitely make better cookies than Lani AND I make chocolates at Christmastime!

Love you!
