Andrew went to Valley’s Homecoming dance last night. Before the dance he went out for dinner with his friends Will and Tatum, then they headed to the dance. Andrew said it was great, a lot of his friends were there, and the loud, non-stop music made it hard to actually talk with anyone.
Mari played the Sousaphone at Valley’s homecoming game tonight. She likes playing the tuba, but she does not appreciate holding the sousaphone for any extended period of time.
This evening we went to the grand opening of a Wahlburgers restaurant in West Des Moines. The kids were excited to see Mark Wahlberg, and it was something to do. Donny was also there, with a lot of New Kids On The Block fanatics, including Susan (NKOTB was her first concert). It was interesting.
Lucia & Rose had a photo session today with photographer Mari.
Today we celebrated Susan’s birthday. The Connors were in town this weekend so we had a chance to celebrate with the whole Liess clan.
I don’t usually make posts about our furniture, but we got this really cool table from West End Architectural Salvage. It is 10 feet long and 4 feet wide. Susan pointed out that since living in the RV with tiny furniture we are going big!
PS – Check out the brass band action in the background.
Now that Elliot is in the 6th grade, and we live a normal existence, he is joining the band. He decided to play the saxophone. He sounds great from the start and already has a smooth transition between notes. One of the great things about being home is enjoying the kids practicing their instruments.
