And the good keeps coming...

Ok some bad comes with this post... We have a friend who has been like another nephew to me. He is my nephews best friend and has been part of the family since he was 3 or so. Well he was in a really bad motorcycle accident on Sunday. He was hit by a drunk driver but is doing ok. His pelvis is broken in three places and his arm is broken also...they aren't sure if the rod they placed is going to work :( So anyways to help him out Lee asked his mom (after she brought it up) if his boss needed help. So she called him up and Lee has a job in Heating and Cooling....yeah us but sad they way he got it. He is trying to help this kid keep his job because as soon as he can work Lee said he would step out if they want him to. So if nothing else he gets some work experience for his resume.

Then in today's mail we get a big envelope in the mail from the college...I thought it was to fast for his degree but waiting until he got home so he could open it...after all it is his mail. It turns out to be his honor certificate...

Ok here is the big graduation post!!

As some of you know when we moved back to Michigan Lee left his dream job :( He could not find a job here so he went to a temp agency to get a job. He worked with them for a few months (89 days to be exact) and then they let him go but told him that if he came back in a few weeks they could do another 89 day thing. Well this does not work out because we have Rachele and I just found out I was pregnant with Kenny. So my dad said to him you really want to go to school...Lee said yes and may dad said well go, I'll take care of the two bills you have. That was in  the summer of 2006. So his journey to his degree began. We went on state aid to help out with the insurance part of things and Lee enrolled in school...I was already enrolled and trying to finish my degree.

So here it is 2010 and he is all done...
He graduated with honors so I made him walk to get the degree!!!

Upset Hubby!!

What to do with a man that hates that "I spend to much time on the computer" is upset that I did not blog about his my defence I was waiting until I get the pictures on the computer to show him off. Its not like he looks at the darn blog anyway...but he is still upset. So in the next few days look for a post about Lee's graduation...

Hello blog world!!

Its been a bit since I blogged...So we got a lot of the cleaning done we wanted done. We did get the my little area for my crafting as you can see by my chair...but that was the only thing I have done. That is able to be seen. I did pull out the knit blanket I started when I found out I was pregnant but stopped because I miscarried and just couldn't work on it. But I figure we will have another one someday so I might as well be ahead of the game.

I have done a few things for dad on the cricut. I need to make him a smaller sign for the back of his car windows...then I can make one for my sister. I will post pictures of my finished products. They are into ham radio stuff so they want to put their callsign on their cars.

I go to days at the end of the month...yea!! I have 6 night shifts left. It is going to feel like an eternity. But the wait is worth my sanity and family time. I hope to be able to do more crafts once I'm on days and once school gets out...which is the middle of June.

Update on the kids!!

Ok so a few weeks ago Rachele wanted her training wheels off. So Lee took them off and we helped her ride up and down the drive way. She did not get it. She was bummed out so I told her Aunt Beth was a good two wheeler teacher. So on Friday she asked Aunt Beth to teach her how to ride. So my very great sister who just finished running on her trendmill and was headed to the shower came right over (she lives across the street) to help her out. Well after about 30 minutes she kinda had it but had too much drama so she didn't continue. Later that night in the driveway she said can I ride my bike...I said yes but daddy and I are busy so we can't help. She said ok I just want to see if I can get started. She got more than started she just took off and is so happy to be riding.

Kenny is still having training issues. The boy just doesn't get it. He knows when he goes but does not want to go in the potty. It is crazy. He does good at daycare but not at home. Anybody know why??? I have heard boys are harder to train but this is silly. His vocabulary is getting larger and very interesting. Nothing bad but it is funny that he uses the right word when needed.

Ok as most of you know from FB we have been cleaning. I have some before pictures of the dining room but its not totally done yet so it will be a bit before I get them up. We moved onto the garage because it was such a wonderful day yesterday and the kids wanted to jump on the trampoline. Any ways, my craft corner is taking shape. A lot more work needs to be done but we are headed in the right direction. We cleaned out the lower part under the shelves you know the part on the ground. It was all stuff the owner left behind. So we moved it to the shed not knowing if they want it or not. Well that gives us a lot more room to put totes and get rid of some of the clutter in the garage. So with the nice storm rolling in I'm not sure how much work will be done outside but I can finish the inside.
