what has transped in 2010:
January - The New Year was wonderful. The little family
celebrated at home. Everyone made it to midnight. Kathleen
complained about watching the ball drop an hour early because
it was a live telecast. She wanted it like it was when she
was young, pre-recorded so it dropped at the "right"
February - The little family went to a friend's house
for the Super Bowl. It was great because it had been quite
some time since everyone got together. The children enjoyed
playing with their friends, and the adults just enjoyed chatting
and watching the commercials...uh...game. Alison has found
out she has "abdominal migraines." She started some
medication and goes back in a few months.
March - March was rather interesting. It snowed on
the first day of Spring. Then, the weather warmed up and the
family car died....again. This time it was the radiator. What
a mess. This year, Brian managed to get through Spring Break
without a visit to the emergency room or have any injuries!
Easter was wonderful as well. Alison, Brian and Kathleen "hid"
eggs for Cole outside and Kathleen made a treasure hunt for
Brian and Alison to find their baskets. The Easter Bunny even
brought a basket for Keith. Brian's school band performed
in UIL and placed 2nd and 3rd in their categories. We are
so proud of him and the band.
April - Has been well. Kathleen is glad the car is
surviving. This is also the month for all the state mandated
testing. It has Brian and Alison stressed, but they seem to
do rather well. Alison was also tested for Band for her 6th
grade year, and will be playing the trumpet. Guess she really
is a daddy's girl. Brian will still be playing the sax next
year and should be performing a solo for an award soon.
November - .
