Here we go!!!

Hello Family!

Some of us are far away, all of us are busy, and time zones impede our communications but we're still a family that loves each other. With modern technology at our finger tips, the thought occurred to me that we should have our own website. My master blogger husband suggested to me that the easiest thing to do would be to create a blog. We can post information about what happening in our lives and photos to help us recognize those fast growing kids and keep up with each other's age lines. Maybe I can even get Mom to learn enough about it to fire up the computer Marv gave her so she can chat with us!! Ok - I know I'm dreaming could happen!

So, here it is - our very own blog. We can log on and catch up on the latest goings on. But - everyone has to put information here so we can keep up - like the status of Jerry's surgery recovery (hint, hint) and maybe Ashley vacation photos.

I'll start by telling you that I've been home for a couple of weeks and it looks like I won't have to travel for a few weeks more. It's good to be home without having to plan for the next trip. I know it won't last too long but I'm enjoying it while it does. I'm busy preparing to close the office here. With only a few people left in an office that was very small to start with my boss decided that the company would save money by having me and my employee work from home. So we'll each be setting up an office at the home. The company will pay for certain expenses and provide the office equipment needed. There are pros and cons for this but on the whole I think it will be good.

Those of you in Alabama were disappointed when Danielle and Keenan didn't make it to Brian and Emily's wedding (which was beautiful and delightful I might add). Below is a picture of Keenan from a tennis tournament last weekend. He has grown go much you would hardly know him. There's a link to his website at the right although it's out of date right now. Bobby's working on getting it current and you should be able to see how he's doing with his tennis soon.

Also, I have to tell you that Bobby and I went with friends to the Andre Agassi Grand Slam for Children concert last night which is a fundraiser for Andre's foundation for helping disadvantaged children. They raised more than $8 million. His Foundation uses 100% of the money for the children and he and his manager pay for the administration of the foundation. Both of them are truly some of the good guys in this world. Michelle went too with some of her gaming friends but they went to the whole VIP activities. I'm sure she will have interesting accounts of the evening.

Got to run but hope you are all well.

Love, Sis
