June 16 Update

Sorry its been so long since I posted anything.  We have been busy with summer here.  Noah got out of school on June 3rd and took the following week to relax and catch up on video games.  There were a couple of days when he didn’t leave the house and just bounced from bed to couch back to bed again.  Last Wednesday he had golf lessons at the Keystone Ranch Golf Course and Thursday he went back out to the driving range with his buddy, Parker.

On Friday night Noah and Al went down to spend the night with Al’s folks.  I stayed home fighting off a cold and to take care of the dogs.  On Saturday morning Noah had to be in Ft. Collins at 8:15 to take the SSAT – which is an aptitude test required by some private schools for admissions.  We have applied Noah to Colorado Academy in Denver for fall enrollment, and while we are not overly optimistic, we are hopeful he will get accepted.  Colorado Academy is a private school with K-12 grades, with 800 students total.  They have a waiting list each year for enrollment, but have openings for next year of 1 or 2 spots.  That’s why we are not too optimistic.  We should find out in a week or so if he was accepted.

Noah stayed down with Al and Rosalie for a couple of days, and I will go a pick him up tomorrow.  Then on Saturday Noah, Ozzy and I are driving to Iowa to spend a week in Anamosa.  Noah will attend a Hockey Camp in Cedar Rapids from 1pm to 4pm Monday through Friday.

My flowers are SLOWLY starting to come in.  Its been a strange spring/summer with lots of rain and not much sunshine.  Temps have been in the low 30s in the overnight hours, with day time temps reaching the 50s to low 60s.  Here are a couple of pictures… Not much to show yet, but my wild irises are about to bloom and of course the pansies are blooming.  We have not planted flower boxes yet, as we are waiting until after the house gets painted next week.
