Going Home Part 2


Sorry it's taken so long to get the much awaited part 2 on the blog...the rain made me sleepy. Anyways, the 2nd part of our trip was spent with Lucas' family. With the exception of his parents, we hadn't seen some of his family since my graduation and most of his family since the Christmas before last, so it had been a while. This part of the trip was much more relaxing. We spent a few days in Rogers City (and since there were fewer people to see there than in Hillsdale, we got to sleep in and hang out and relax) and then we went downstate for Logan's graduation and Denise and Dan's 50th birthday party. Biggest Highlights: GRANDMA"S HOMEMADE BREAD and gleasons, Denise's cookies (which are the best in the universe according to a very reliable source), seeing Rogers City friends, Logan's graduation (which was very efficient and over in an hour), the partay, playing cards (and occasionally winning) and being surrounded by family Random funny thing: it really isn't a funny thing, it's a funny person. Lucas' aunt Debbie is one of the funniest people I have ever been around. Aunt Debbie, I still randomly picture you singing "all things are possible"!!! The thing I'm still bitter about: In general, I stink at anything that requires hand-eye coordination, but I was hoping that just once I would have the amazing ability to bowl a decent game at Logan's graduation reception (at the bowling alley where he works). It was not to be. I bowled a fabulous game of 58 and followed it with a game of 63. I did however have the distinction of throwing the most gutter balls...

hey guys! how is the rain/water level/state of emergency over there? getting better? did it get worse?

and to respond to your comment - I've never seen "24". I have heard that it's good though.

Wow! you are right up there with my average for bowling too. 68 was my average and I was on a weekly bowling team then. I do it for the social part not to win of course.
Getting Matt ready for his mission trip to Bahamas Monday. I will be glad when he is back safe and sound and hopefully working at a job. mom in Ne

So it must be true what they say about the summer months being lazy . . . yes, that is a less than subtle hint.

Yikes--Wonder if JSchellhammer has been to my blog!

Hi Lucas--I'm going to try to send you dig. copies of the pic with you and Evie, once we have the Net at our house again.

Glad you guys had a fun trip--it's always good to get a little vacation time in!
