First Day of School

Well, the first day of school was yesterday. WOOHOO! Per tradition, this is our classic “Walk to the bus stop” photo. Smaller crowd this year, as Hanley was already in class when this photo was taken. She's on the bus by 6:50 AM. Ouch!
Anyway, the girls and Courage had a though-provoking stroll to their final destination...Mercer Elementary. Have fun!

Lost a Friend

We got some sad news on Sunday that our dear friend and former neighbor, Lori Dierckes, passed away. Mark tells us she is finally at peace after fighting breast cancer for several years.
Lori and Mark became our very close friends after moving next door to us on Asbury Rd. They were the kind of neighbors you could always count on to help out, or just hang out with, and it was obvious they were true soul-mates.
Lori will be missed by everyone she made contact with.
