Just a day in the life.......

Just a day in the life of parenting teenagers.....

Our children are very productive busy people. Don't get me wrong, I'm NOT complaining, just thought that I would give you a glimpse into our crazy life by sharing some details of our crazy night last night. Bill and I both worked all day. Immediately after work, I drove over to Westview High School to help with Allie's dance clinic by selling Westview boxers. After that I ran home to pick up the camera and then meet Bill for a quick bite to eat. We went to the Streets of Tanasborne...Hot Topic to be exact. Matthew was doing an "open mic" raw performance in the store. It was great! Matt and his friend James played about 6 songs to a packed store. They sounded so professional. Matthew is truly talented with his music and we were 2 proud parents standing there listening to him.

We had to leave the performance a tad bit early to race over the high school and watch Allie perform with the kindergartners and 1st graders at the half time show of the basketball game. It was such a cute performance. I had to leave as soon as the dance was over to take Allie to the airport to catch a flight to Southern Oregon University so that she could spend Valentine's Day with her boyfriend Alex. I drove Allie to the airport in her car.....however****

At the airport, there was a little bit of drama with some of the liquid items that Allie had her in bag. In all of the excitement, I left the keys to MY car in the tray at airport security and didn't realize this until I met Bill back at my car. We called the airport and they had my keys, but they said that if I didn't pick them up that night that they would be taken to the Port of Portland and I wouldn't be able to pick them up until Tuesday. UGH...That wasn't going to work, so Bill and headed back to the airport to pick up my keys. It's close to midnight by this point and we were so exhausted!

Luckily, Kaela spent the night with Aunt Cherie who transported her around to her Valentine party with the youth group. It's true what they say...It truly does take a village to raise children.

****Oh and some good news!
Allie was accepted to
Southern Oregon University in Ashland, Oregon.
So, officially she will be flying the coop in August.
She will major in Elementary Education.
We are so happy for her as she embarks on the
next phase of her life! ****
