Good News

This last week Erin and Erik both had try outs for choir and made it. They both had to audition and Erik had a slim to none chance of getting in, because they usually don't have room for 4th graders, because the 5th and 6th graders get priority. Also they usually have the choir set before the end of the school year. So it was a pretty big deal for both of them to make it and it was also really good for Erin who is quite shy in front of crowds. I am really proud of them both.

So be ready for some choir pictures this year!! I will be taking pictures of Erik at his gymnastics class here soon and be able to post them.

I am also excited about the good news of the VP candidate for McCain, Sarah Palin. She is quite a fireball and has a great head on her shoulders and also a really good heart. Having never heard of her before I went on line and starting looking things up and reading about her. She is absolutely amazing. Mother of 5, the last was born with Down Syndrome. Her comments and feelings to family and friends was such a joy to read. REALITY!!!! She loves life, her family, America and its people, its freedoms, and so much more. And believe it or not I got that all from the media. I can't wait to find out more about her. She seems like such a great role model and has nothing to hide. The only thing they critize her for is inexperiance, but her short track record is exceptional!! I am now getting more excited about this upcoming election! Great choice McCain!!!

Congrats Erin & Eric! Resa and Jillian are in choir also!

As for Palin, SMARTEST MOVE MCCAIN HAS MADE YET!!! Before he chose her, I was thinking...."he stinks, but anyone other than Obama (he seriously gives me the creepy crawlies when it comes to him as pres.) Can we get her as prez?
