Where has the Year Gone?

Here it is May 2010 just a few days before Erich's and my 20th wedding anniversary. We haven't planned anything too special, just going to the Melting Pot for dinner on Wednesday evening. We did a trip to Laughlin earlier this month and stayed at our new favorite casino/hotel The Aquarius. Reasonably priced rooms with great floor to ceiling views of the Colorado River.

Taylor has become a toddler, no longer the little baby but a cute, stubborn little girl. Alexis just finished her first year at Glendale Community College. She will be taking Summer courses and working at Sprouts Farmer's Market in the Bulk Foods Department. She was awarded a $2,000 scholarship from Sprouts for her next school year.

Zach moved out April 15th with his friend Zach. He is struggling to learn how to budget but is enjoying being out on his own. Kassidy had her gall bladder removed in April after having a lot of painful attacks, she is doing much better now. She has just graduated from 8th grade and will be attending Peoria High School next school year. Samantha will be in eight grade. Kassidy and Samantha are looking forward to their trip to Franklin, MA to visit the Waslewski family in June.

Erich has just accepted a full-time position with the University of Phoenix as the FNP (Family Nurse Practitioner) Program Manager at the Phoenix Campus. He is looking forward to the change.

Crop Girls is doing well. In January we moved two doors down into a larger suite. I love spending time with our customers and feel I have made some new friends. I am enjoying being a Grandma, Taylor is a joy and I feel very lucky to have her living in our home and being able to see her every day.
