TEENAGER in the House

Tyler's birthday was May 9. We now have a teenager in the house.
We have been so blessed these past 13 years to have Tyler with us.
He is such a delight and we love to watch him grow and learn.

Kitchen Pictures

I have moved back in to the kitchen. I really love it. Some of the things that we changed I really like. Most cabinets were changed to drawers. We moved the refrigerator to the other wall. There is a roll out pantry for spices and such.
I like the two trash can pull-out, one for trash, one for recycling. We also put in an induction cook-top and I really like it. I have already had a few boil overs and clean-up was a snap. I love the lazy susan in the corner. I now have a double oven and one is convection. We cooked three cookie pans all at once and they came out great, no more rotating. We put in one big sink, it has been great. The cabinets now go to the ceiling. Even though I can't reach the top 2 shelves , I can put things up there that aren't used on a regular basis. I spent lots of time configuring the back splash and really happy how it turned out. Love the lights, undercounter, can lights and ceiling fan with light.
I'll send some pictures for you to see.

Sports award Night

Tyler was on the 7th grade Basketball team. He also swam for the swim team. They had a Sports Award night. He got some trophys and also recognized for Honor Roll while playing sports.

Fiesta Texas Band Competition

Tyler's band went to San Antonio to Fiesta Texas and played in a Band competition. After they played then they got to spend the rest of the day in the park and go on all the rides. I chaperoned. We met at the school at 6 am and got back about midnight. We did ride on the nice air conditioned buses so it was nice.
