Birthday Celebration

We celebrated the three birthdays this weekend, Erin's, Patrick's and Michael's.  We went out to dinner Saturday evening and then back to Amy and Dave's to open presents and eat ice cream and cake.

I think last time I wrote an entry we were getting ready to go to Saugatuck.  We went and had a nice vacation there.  The weather is the best thing about Michigan, warm days and not so warm nights.  It was fun being with the sisters and their families. Susie came this year too, which was a nice treat.  I hadn't seen her in over a year.

Now we have one more vacation left.  We are going to Hilton Head from Sept. 5-12 with John and Chellie.  They rented a four bedroom house with a pool, so it should be a lot of fun.  Chellie's mother and partner will be there too. 

All of the grandkids are back to school except the ones in Boston.  They don't start until after Labor Day.  Erin and Abbey started last Wednesday and Katie, Sara and Michael started this past Tuesday.  Both Abbey and Sara started middle school, and Corinne will be starting at Boston Latin, which goes from 7th through 12 grades.  Lots of changes.  I'm not taking a class this fall but I am going to teach a class, College Writing.  It is a "late start" twelve class which doesn't start until Sept. 15, which is perfect as it will be after we get back from Hilton Head.  Wayne is taking another history class, but I decided to pass on that.

We have a busy week coming up--birthday week.  Tomorrow is Erin's birthday, Saturday is Patrick's and Sunday is Michael's.  We are going to Olive Garden Sat. Night to celebrate their birthdays. Then Tuesday is Julie and Kay's birthday, and I'm having the Fancy Aunt lunch here on the thirtieth for Kay, Marisa (whose birthday was last month) and for Annie whose birthday is next month.
