This is Abby

Abby here!!! I know you're all proably thinking "Geeesh, it's about time". But I am going to post for my mother. Right now she's in Seattle at a Swan Bay Meeting. Anyway...... It's our last day of school today!!! We had a barbaque and I can't believe school's already over. It feels like just yestersday Mr. Van Maanen was helping me put the shelf in my locker, even though it was really just yesterday that he helped me get it out. I had great teachers and a great homeroom class. I can't believe it's already summer!!!

November Sleep Over

introducing Ivy May. Yes, it's true, we are happy dog owners again. All of these pictures are blurry, not sure what was going on with my camera. Ivy is an outdoor dog, that gets to come in a lay on her bed once in a while. She is so cute. I don't love that she has already chewed up at least two shoes, but she's a keeper.

The girls talked me into a sleep over. Abby invited Kristin and Elle and Emily invited Sydney. It was a fun way to spend the two extra days off.

Indoor Arena Motocross

Luke had his first indoor racing experience with lots of "Fans" The ladies love MX!

He even did flat track during this weekend. Two 2nd place trophies. He took first on the flat track but his rear tire went flat and he was unable to ride in the second race.

Lots of noise and fun!

Fall 2010

Well it is oficially Fall this week. The weather is definately agreeing. I am thrilled that it is pouring down rain today and NOT yesterday. Yesterday was a big first for me. I was an official wedding planner! The wonderful couple was Frank and Sue Nydam. Everything went fantastic.
It was very fun. Rick was in a tux as a groomsman.

Life is Good

Yes, It has been 6 months, but I have really fun stuff to share today.

I have two beautiful Cow Girls and one Motorcrossin' Man!

Today Luke had a great day with his Coach Kyle. We were both very proud.

Emily and Abby recently attended the Lynden Rodeo Pagent with our friend Karen, and they looked so pretty in their cowgirl get ups. Thanks, KK.

Happy Birthday Nanna!

Today Rick's mom would have been 64. I made one of Rick's favorite casseroles for dinner and invited Ted over. I don't think it was one of Ted's favorites. Rick is still in South Dakota with Taylor and Jade. Taylor signed up for the draft today and visited a recruiting office. Rick was proud as they left. Taylor shook the men's hands and said, "It was nice to meet you, sir."
Jade got her drivers license today! She is pretty excited!
Abby and Emmy are playing dolls tonight, while Grandpa Ted is with Luke at Tiger Cubs. That should be interesting. It's Luke's first den meeting. Emily starts piano lessons tomorrow. So much excitement!

I Am Back

I am Back..............

It has been two months since I have blogged. I embarrassingly, read each of your summer blogs. Embaressed because, I so love reading yours, but Ashamed that my blog sat silent.

OK! We have had a fantastic summer, I am dripping with GREAT pictures, but the LC Centennial has really kept me busy this summer and NOW! It is a beautiful thing, but WOW!

Luke enjoyed each Thursday competing in his motocross at Hannagan Speedway. He finished 2nd place overall, even though he started half way through the summer. He is set and ready for next year with a new race bike and gear to rock the track. God gave mercy: so no falls were too harmful.

Abby could not get enough of her Alaska cousins this summer. They had a hard time saying goodbye, but the time spent was a true blessing. We love you girls. She rode her horse at Pa Pa & Hunny's any chance she got.

August brought Jansen family fun during a big event at our house and the Company Picnic. It gets better every year. Too much fun!

We have also been blessed with our friends from New Zealand and Costa Rica.
The cultural differences are the same and different. My kids are so privlaged to have the experience to live with the friends we have. Sad good bye to Claire and Family and not looking forward to the CR goodbyes.

I don't want to forget Emily.
She is so excited to start piano lessons this year. She has been reading really well and ready for 1st grade. She too, likes to ride horse.

Also: Rick is traveling to Sioux Falls right now and is bringing a car for Jade who turned 16 in May. She will be a licenced driver soon.
God speed to Rick who is currently in Wyoming, driving the Pontiac Grand Am that will soon be Jade's.

Taylor will be 18 on the 12th. A MAN! Rick is excited to spend time with Taylor and Jade. I am happy for them and wish I was there. Luke does too. He asks why Taylor's voice sounds different.

Ok, with any luck, I will include photos next time. I forgot how.

Oh and on a side note. I am still the assistant Development director, Alumni Coordinator, Silpada Jewelry sales girl, Mom, wife, friend, and have taken on year book advisor for the K-8 yearbook. And did I mention, it is the Centennial!

It is going to be a GREAT year!

Hugs to all and thanks for sharing your stories all summer!

Our family is celebrating God's Faithfullness this year at LC's Centennial!

God Bless You
