Catching up...AGAIN!!!

Ok, since I haven't blogged since Britt's graduation I reallllyyyy need to catch up!

Let's start with me forgetting my parents at the airport!!! Well, I didn't really forget them...I just didn't think they were coming in on Wednesday....we all thought they were coming in on Thursday, including my brother who made the reservations for them.

So here it is Wednesday evening and I am finishing up some last minute details, like cleaning my bathroom, and washing the sheets for the bed my parents are going to sleep in...when the phone rings and its my dad. I ask him where he is and he tells me, "The airport." So I ask, "Daddy why are you at the airport at midnight? Your plane does not leave until 8am?" He replies, " I am at the Honolulu Airport!" Ooooppppppssss!!! So I instruct my children to finish all the jobs I hadn't and jumped into the truck to go get my parents. I was bummed because I though they were flying in on Thursday evening, so I had just decided to work until they got there, so I had to go to work the next day. They just chilled out at home!

Then came the mad dash to pick Rick up because the boat did a personal transfer and he was coming in late Friday afternoon. he had just enough time to rush home shower, change and head out the door...to Alycea's graduation. It was beautiful and I pretty much cried from the time we got in the car until I went to bed that night.

The next day saw us running around for lei's and other items for the graduation ceremony, painting the windows on the truck, and juggling all those people into the cars.....

I will stop here because Britt's graduation deserves a post all of its own.....so stay tuned...I'll be back by this weekend!
