I’m a little disappointed in the quality of the video once I uploaded it to YouTube…might have to look into that.


And in other news…

I’m movin’ on up to President of my local twin’s club chapter.

Way Back When-esday

Cheryl over at Twinfatuation hosts this one. Go on over to see who else is playing – and join in too!

These aren’t from too far back…just last year, in fact.

Burke and Maggie graduated from Pre-K (for the first time) last May. They graduate for the second time tomorrow! (Each class in the school graduates – even if you’ll be returning in the Fall.)

Graduation BBQ

We invited the kids from Maggie and Burke’s class (and their families) over for a Graduation BBQ today.

Mike went all out: burgers, dogs, kielbasa, pork chops, green beans, and potatoes. We also had stuffed shells with meatballs and a pasta salad.

Cupcakes, Oreo brownies, and this wonderful chocolate bark (that I’m so getting the recipe for!) were available for dessert.

The kids had a blast playing in the kiddie pool (that I broke and partially patched right before everyone got here!), running through the sprinkler, splashing in the water table, swinging, playing in the sandbox, and climbing on the playhouse. In general, being kids 🙂

I lost count, but I think there were 14 or 15 kids and 10 or 11 adults.

My Baby Sister Graduated!!

Congratulations to Meghan – my baby sister – who graduated from High School last night!!



Here’s a quick video of her walking across the stage:

I know that this post should be all about Meg … cuz it’s her graduation … but it’s my blog, so I’m going to have to write about how good the kids were! We brought all 3 kids with us, and even though the ceremony started right around bed time, they were *SO* good! There was some squirming (my GOD it was hot in that gymnasium), and some passing-of-the-kids  among the adults…but it was all good.
