So Much has happened

So much has happened since I have last written.  Even the page setup that I am writting on right now is different.

Since February- Chandler turned19, Carson turned 10, We ended the school year in May.
Chandler left for Columbus, Ohio where he played with the u19 & U20 teams.  David, Carson, Cameron and I visited him and while there we went to Kings Island(what a blast!!) The U19 team won Nationals, it was televised and was so exciting to see our son play soccer on t.v.
My mother-in-love( diagnosed with Alzheimers 3 yrs ago)  fell on June 14th, feeling that he couln't keep her safe at home anymore at home as this was the 3rd fall, my father-in-love decided it best to put her in a nursing home, she spent 1 wk in the hospital, 1 wk in the nursing home, 1 wk in the hospital again, 1 wk in a hospice facitliy and then quietly took her last breath  with family surrounding her on July 15th.  Thankfully we were able to get Chandler home in time to see her before she passed even though she did not recognize any of us in the end.  She was a fiesty fun woman and has been greatly missed.  Father-in-love is trying to keep busy but misses her so.
Finising the story--Chandler started soccer back at U of M, another school year has begun for Carson, Cameron and I. David has continued working and just celebrated 29 years with FedEx. My Dad had a mild heart attack and thankfully was able to get by with surgery that put in two stents rather than by-pass surger, so we are praying that this along with diet/exercise changes he will be back to himself very soon. We just got back from a soccer tournament in Atlanta last night for Carson's team where they won 1 game and tied 2 but didn't advance.  Now going to spend this Labor Day preparing for the week and going to see our favorite #5 play tonight in the Tiger's game.

Now after recapping 6 months in 1 paragraph I guess it really isn't necessary to write daily. ha!!As I looked through the pictures that I wanted to choose for this post I realized I really should blog more often because there really are do many other things that occured and details that I want to remember.  I have to try to make the time to record these days as I know my memory is not as good as it once was.. ha
