Brenna & the Dragon Boat Races

by on Jun.27, 2011, under Brenna, June 2011

Brenna was invited to and spent the day Saturday, June 25th with her friend Makayla and her family at the Dragon Boat races in Farragut.  She spent the day watching the races, making crafts, but unlike previous opportunities, she didn’t get her face painted.

She had a blast spending the day with her friend and enjoying all the activities the Dragon Boat races offered!

Now that we know about the event, we may all go next year!

Here is more about the event:

Nicklas & Donovan

Nicklas had one of his classmates, Donovan, spend the night Thursday, June 23rd.  The boys spent most of the evening in the basement playing with the slot cars or the Nintendo Wii.  They also opted to sleep down there pulling out the bed from the sleeper couch.

Updates and all that…..

by on Jun.16, 2011, under All, June 2011

Well, it has been a while since we have updated the site.  We’ve been busy with work, school, and adjusting to life down in TN.

Brenna was in pre-k and absolutely loved it!  She made many friends and has a really close friend named Makayla.  They were together constantly in school.  So much so, that they were given the “Reese’s Stick” Candy Bar award as they were always stuck together!  They get together now as much as they possibly can.

Nick was in 5th grade and he kept his grades up…..and down….but finished the school year with 3 B’s and a C.  He was on a basketball team through the Loudon County Rec department and when he could get the ball, he did very well.  There were two ball hogs on his team and they didn’t give the ball up very often.  Nick also participated in the Steekee Writers Fair and was awarded 2nd place for his piece.  We are very proud of him for that!  He went on a field trip with the 5th grade to Fort Loudon Middle School to see what it would be like for them in 6th grade.  He seems to be excited.  Nick tried out for the middle school basketball team and unfortunately didn’t make it this year.  He said he had fun and would try out again next year.

Michaela is taking a break from working full time and is staying at home with the kids.  She does baby-sit twice a week for a girl from Brenna’s class and her little brother.  It gives her a bit to do and Brenna has someone to play with at home.  Michaela has also gotten involved with the Tellico Community Players and worked lights for a play earlier this year.  She is currently working lights again for another one of the Players shows.  The Players will have a musical later this year and then at Christmas time, they will put on a version of Ebenezer Scrooge.

Paul is busy with work.  He has his hands full with a variety of issues and it’s generally never boring.  His company had a holiday party and it was very nice.  It was held at a country club and had a live band.  The food was excellent and the dessert table was over flowing.  Michaela fell in love with the red velvet cake.  A good time was had by all, including the kids who were home with a sitter.

That is pretty much it in a nut shell.  More updates will come during the summer and the school year.  Check back often as we will continue updating.
