Just a few weeks ago I went to Megan's open house at the high school. We got to meet all her teachers and see what she will be working on through out the year. Im glad it is her and not me! I don't remember high school being that hard, but of course I never took the classes that Megan takes. And than there is Tucker who is scary smart. He is just like is dad! He barely has to study, oh wait he doesn't study, and he still gets A's. That drives Megan crazy. I am waiting to see where Colby fits. He loves school but does not like to do homework, he would rather be outside playing ball. It should be interesting!
It is scary to thing how much smarter my kids are than me. Let's just hope they don't figure it out any time soon!

Well on to our night...Friday night was very casual. We all met up at a local bar in town. Our group of girls all met early for dinner. It was great to see everyone and it was just like old times. I think we all looked great! One thing I did learn was that I was no longer able to drink like I did 20 years ago! I really didn't think I was drinking that much. We got home around 1:00 am and sat around and talked until about 3:30. When I headed to bed I felt fine, but by 5:00 things had taken a turn for the worse. Im sure I don't have to explain!!!
Saturday we had a family picnic. Although I wasn't feeling that great it was wonderful to see everyone's kids. I have to give my husband a shout out...he was a huge help at the picnic. We had run out of drinks and than plates. He took care of everything! He is a keeper!
Saturday night we all met up again for dinner. We all got a chance to look at old yearbooks and school newspapers. It all seemed like such a long time ago. I don't remember having that big hair and crazy glasses but there were pictures to prove it. We all got a good laugh. We decided that we wouldn't wait another 10 years for our next reunion. I will be busy helping plan our 25th soon because I can't wait to see all these people again.
I would love to post pictures but of course my camera decided to stop working, so I will post as soon as my friends email them to me!

On Sunday night I talked with my bestfriend Diane on the phone. She had called to talk to me about the reunion and tell me about her dad who is really sick and getting ready to have heart surgery. It is such a reality check. Both of our parents have had major health issues and its really scary to think that they could pass away. I remember having dreams when I was little about my parents dying and how I would wake of in tears. Well it hasn't changed, the thought of them not being here scares me to death and brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. So on that note I am keeping Diane's dad in my thoughts and praying everything goes okay with his surgery.
On top of this Diane may not be able to come to the reunion. I can't imagine her not being there! Even though we don't talk everyday or see each other on a regular basis I don't want to do this without her! Maybe she is my security blanket. Highschool was not that great and it truly is something I don't want to do over again. Don't get me wrong I had fun in highschool and have alot of great memories but I will say there is a lot I would just like to forget! Having a daughter in highschool brings back all those memories, girl drama, homework, boys, arguing with my parents...but the one person that was always there was Diane. So I am going to beg her to come. I will have my other great friend Jodi her on Friday but she is leaving on Saturday to go on her family vacation so we will see what happens on Saturday! Hopefully my security
blanket will show up!!!
Keep you eyes open for upcoming Class of 88 reunion pictures! Im sure you can't wait!

We also have had another big change in our extended family. Megan's boyfriend Brandon started college at Wichita State. We took him down on Sunday to get him settled in his dorm. Even though he is not my child it was very hard to say goodbye. He has become such a part of our family over the last two years, the house will seem a little empty without him around so much. One good thing is that our grocery bill will go down! He will be back this weekend and we can't wait to see him.
Everything else is great in the Landwehr house. Megan is busy with cheer, Tucker is worn out from Football practice and Colby's is waiting for his flag football and basketball season to start. Never a dull moment!

After that we headed off to the the Omaha Zoo. Doyle and Shelly joined us along with Derek, one of Megan and Brandon's goofy friends. We were looking forward to the zoo. We had heard great things and were expecting to see alot. Of course I took way too many pictures put I will post a few of my favorites. We were a little disappointed in the zoo. Maybe we have been to too many great zoos but Omaha did not live up to our expectations, maybe it was just too hot who knows. The zoo just seemed to be run down and not kept up. Frank and I always wonder why these organization give big money for new exhibits but seem to never give enough money to keep it up. Don't get me wrong they have some great exhibits but you can sure tell which ones are the new one and which ones have been around for awhile. Overall we had a good time and I enjoyed getting to spend some quality time with my family and friends.

Today I find myself sitting here on my couch during nap time thinking of all of the things I need to get done and all I really want to do is take my littlest guy to the pool. That is one thing about being a working parent I just can't drop everything and take time to do those little things. So I am very thankful for his friend's parents that have the time to take him when I can't. That is one of the main reasons that I decided to close my store. I can't believe how fast the time has gone by since the first day I opened. I absolulely love my store and I hate to close it but its time, my kids are growing up in front of me and I don't want to miss a minute of it. So the decision was made and even though I am sitting here trying to hold back my tears I know it is a good decision and one that I will not regret.
So now I am off to cover my Colby in sunblock and kiss him goodbye before he heads off to the pool with his friend Gabe.
Bye for now - Angie
