A Busy Month

April was busy, crazy and seemed to just fly by!
Ashlie received a Principle Pride award for doing her schoolwork! (Not a fan of the principle pride - but that's a whole other rant and rave)
Ashlie also got PUNK'D by big sis. All I can say is someday Ash will be as big as big sis and then she better watch out!
The boy had yet ANOTHER photo op with his best friend, Hot Dog

Mom took 1 final (aced it!) and 1 midterm (aced it!) and started studying for another final.
Mom also had another surgery - but all went well. Healing is slow, but it is healing. Mom is still not allowed to run and it is making her feel very grumpy.

My Mom and Dad with the good 'ol Coleman camp trailer (it is a 1977 Coleman tent trailer). This is the trailer I grew up camping in- such fond memories. Mom and Dad gave it to me - I just passed it on to my sis. We don't use it now that we have the boat.

Mom and Dad had very fond memories of the trailer and came over to say goodbye.

Here they are again - saying their farewells to the good 'ol camping house.
Dad didn't look so well - said he was just tired. I kept bugging him - asking if he was feeling okay.
He ended up having a massive heart attack the next morning.
We are very lucky he is alive! Doctors kept telling us they didn't think he would make it. He still has two very blocked arteries, so everyone is taking turns watching him carefully.
So we spent last week at the hospital with Dad.
Very exciting - not the kind of excitement I really like, though.
Just glad Dad is okay. Not ready to lose him!

Mom is now studying for one last final.
Chris is cleaning the snorkel gear in anticipation of our end of semester celebration (in Cancun)
Kids are moping around the house because they are not invited.
Dog is feeling anxious because he knows we're leaving.
Hopefully May will be a little less eventful.

Oh my gosh! How did I not hear about your dad? Hang in there!

You have a full plate! No wonder you didn't call to tell me when I could bring food. I am showing up this week, sometime, with food in hand.
