Well, that was cool. Pluto has been removed from our solar system as a “planet”, but at least its still a “known object”… Whatever that means! I think its neet that people are getting so outraged about this… Its status quo or something. “Pluto is a planet, that’s what we have believed for 90 years, so lets not change it”.
Phooey! Change with the times, we should celebrate that we know so much more about the solar system and our planets that we were able to come to this end.
Summer started school this week. Its only a few hours a day since Wednesday, but she seems to like it. Its harder for Mom & I to get into routine now! Ang threw out some homework the other night, and I have forgotten her book bag one day. BAD PARENTS!!! I’m sure we are on the teachers radar at this moment. I hope she does not call DCFS.
Aiden has been wishy washy about the whole thing. We are not sure if he is digging Summer being gone or not. He starts PreSchool this week.
The kids are going the Catholic School. Kinda different to see them come home with colored pictures of Jesus… But I still feel this is a great situation over what we would be doing if they were in public school.
I didn’t go the fair again this year… I am a bad alumni! I got a call from Leahy that morning, and I could tell he would have went if I did… Ang gave me the look when he called, I could tell she had NO interest in going to Fairbury, or letting me go to Fairbury to drink at the beer tent. I guess I have a bad track record?
Don is coming back to Illinois for a stop over next month. That should be fun… I have warned Ang already that this may be a bad time in our relationship… We may be hanging out a lot.
Dan & I are going to San Diego early in September. Its all part of our Beer Show we do. We are flying in for the Stone Brewery 10th Annual Beer Fest. Some friends from other shows are putting us up. We have all laughed that they may be serial killers… Lets hope not! Speaking of Beer and Planes… I cant take beer for my buddies out in the OC in my carry-on bags… Osama strikes again!
I will get some pictures when we go out to Cali.
Oh, and our cruise, that’s in October. Its a Mediterranean cruise with Royal Caribbean. We start in Barcelona (It ends there too) and works its way to Naples before heading back. We should see some cool things. Barcelona, Marseilles, Florence, Pisa, Rome, Naples, The Pompeii ruins. We are booking our excursions now.
