For the last song, Devoted, Audrey ran up to the front of the church to dance and see better. She was invited up on stage and got to sing and dance with her. She was so happy and excited. I was so happy for her that I cried.

Over labor day weekend we went to my mother in-law's. Their little town has a large Paul Bunyan Days festival over Labor Day weekend. One of the events is a tricycle race followed by a kiddie parade. The kids dress in costume appropriate for the theme and make little floats out of bicycles and wagons.
While we were waiting for the parade to start, Audrey looked at me all concerned and said, "But mom? Where's the kitties?"

This past weekend, Josh, the girls and I went out of town to visit his mom for Paul Bunyon Days. Andrew and Kymberly were spending the weekend with their mom. It was Andrew's last weekend at his mom's house before leaving for boot camp. Not 30 seconds after we had finished our conversation with Josh's mom about when boot camp graduation would be, we got a phone call from Andrew. He and his buddy were being called up early. They were to report at the recruiter's office on Monday at 11 am.
