A Series of Unfortunate events

Ben is currently reading a book series called, "A series of Unfortunate events." That would be a good title for the last few weeks. Ben unfortunately threw a disc golf Frisbee threw our dinner room window. Reflections glass was able to fix it for about $150. Still waiting for the bill. Second unfortunate event: Andrew backed out of the garage with the end gate of the van up. Did you know that a simple little plastic piece costs over $400. Unfortunately, my camera has not gotten any better and is still struggling to focus. I am slowing researching what I would like to buy, but in the mean time, the camera money has been thrown through a window and you get the point.

On to better news:

The hockey season has started, which adds insanity to our lives. We have had 4 hockey games in the past 2 weeks and many more to come. I can't really describe how much fun it is to watch the boys play. It's worth all the money, the driving and the chaos.

We have so many things to be thankful for. Here's today's Gratitude list:
1. Good jobs with steady incomes -just to cover all the unfortunate events!
2. Health - we have been very healthy even with the H1n1 flu around Ames.
3. Functioning vehicles - They may have cracks and dents, but they work.
4. Beautiful weather sunshine always lifts my spirits

I finally undated my photo album, be sure to check it out on the right side on this page. Until next time....

    Rose, I really know how you feel. We have had one of those weeks also. But I am glad to hear that you are still in good spirits. I hope that someday I will be able to see the boys play hockey. I have always liked hockey.
