It has been a long time since I posted. School has been keeping me busy, then I am just tired when I get home. It seems Feb. is going to bring lots of meetings and then IEP's (Indiviual Educational Plans) need to be written and meeting with parents. Plus add to that weddings in the summer. I wouldn't have it any other way.
Jude is very busy with wrestling. He has been gone the last two weekends at various sectional tournaments associated with the junior high and grade school tournament circuit. He loves every minute of it.
Jude and I have been involved with Lifeteen. This is a high school youth group sponsored by all three parishes. It has been a very rewarding experience. You can come to the mass at 5:00pm held at Holy Angles every Sunday night. Please do, the mass is open to everyone. Our youth group meets after mass. The music at this mass is great. You are surround by kids who enjoy mass and hanging with Father Dave, it is just the best faith experience.
Bryce and Monica have been working on some wedding stuff. they will be married at St. Mary's and the reception will be in Lorain at Delucas. They will be meeting with Father Dave real soon. Monica is going to pick up her dress in another week. She is very excited.
Shaina and Jonathan have been working on their wedding also. We have a photographer and flower lady. Shai has rooms blocked off at the Grand Plaza, but I think she has a listing of surrounding hotels also listed on her wedding site. I have been keeping an eye on flights. Peggy Legay told me to look at USA 3000 and Alliegent Air both fly directly into Tampa, which is just 20-25 minutes from St. Petersburg. What I have done in the past with flights is go to the airport I want to fly into, look at the airlines that have service there and go directly to them to see if I can find deals. It has worked for me, when going to see Shai. I am so excited it is going to be so much fun.
Finally, I want to tell you about our amazing future son-in-law and his awesome game last night against Witchita Thunder and I quote: "Horrell played against his former team for the second time this season and once again was the difference maker. The 27 year old had 37 saves in a 2-1 victory Saturday in front of an announced crowd of 4,916 at the CenturyTel Center". " Jonny is like any athlete at any level. When he starts to get some confidence, he thrives on it," Mudbugs coach Scott Muscutt said. " He made some big saves early for us and he only got better from there".
It is so nice to see good things happen to good people. Jonathan has worked hard and put his whole heart into hockey. Jude and I feel like proud parents.
That's all. Have a great day!!!
