Hello Everyone,
Hope all is well in everyones world. Alot going on at the Snell household. Mike and I have both been working, Evan is enjoying school and doing awesome, band season is underway and I am getting ready to start classes to get SANE certified. SANE stands for Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner. I am working on all kinds of certifications and plan on getting my batchelor's degree in a year or so. I plan on flying within the next two years also.

Mike has been sick and we even made an ER visit. He is doing alot better and will hopefully be back to his happy healthy self soon.

Evan has been doing great in school. 100 % on everything thus far except for forgetting his name on a german test, silly boy! He had his first football game and dance this weekend, he had a fun and wonderful time. He is adjusting really well to a new town, household, school.

We love this fall weather and having our windows open. I even have fall decorations out!! This is my most favorite time of year!! Hope you all have a great week :)

First Day of School and Burger Bash

Evan started school last week and really enjoyed it. He is taking all honor classes and is taking german 1 which i think will be neat for him to learn. He is such a smart kid. Tonight he had the band's burger bash, which is where families go and meet with other parents and have a big meeting and cookout then watch the kids perform some of their show. Evan did a great job and was pretty much in the front the whole time. I know I have said this before but I love band and never ever thought I would. I am excited to start helping with the band and their first football game performance is this friday and I am taking mom and Cooper, Evan is so excited for us to be there. I will be working the concessions at the next home game. It is so funny how fast I have went to the other side of things, not to long ago I was the one playing sports and mom being the one in the concession stand. We have all kinds of events coming up for band. Magazine sales, fruit sales, band cards, auctions, all kinds of things!!! I can't wait to start baking and doing crafty stuff. Well it is definately time for bed I am so wore out from a fun weekend. Hope everyone's was as enjoyable as mine, now its back to the work week.

A little about Evan

So Evan starts school next friday!! He is really excited and I am excited for him too. We have been letting him have friends over and it is soooo fun. I like knowing where he is and know who his friends are. He has the CUTEST girlfriend and she is so sweet so it is nice that he has someone when he starts school. He loved band camp and had a great time and went on and on about it. We have alot of fun when Mike is at work, we are always doing something. Don't get me wrong we love when Mike is home. Mike is still weekend option and I work during the week so almost all times someone is with Evan. He loves staying with Uncle Loren though.(They are two peas in a pod). I just love having Evan around, I was really nervous about becoming a step mom but he has made it easy for me. I can't wait to start going to band competitions again. He was in the parade last sunday for Strassenfest. I have tons of pictures I need to upload of the parade and all the fun times at our house with his friends.

Beth and Eric our friends from Colorado came for a visit on Monday. They brought their daughters Erica and Jessie. We had such a great time!! As we always do with them. We can't wait till winter break to go out and visit them and have a winter vacation!! I have never been on one and have always dreamed about snowboarding, sleigh rides, sweaters, hot chocolate, and sitting around the fireplace. We took them to Schnitzlebach Restaurant and then hung out playing rockband and other games. I have pictures of that too that I need to get uploaded.

Well I am at work and in 20 minutes I will get to go home wooohooo!! Today I am going to pick up Evan, get a little sleep, clean, bake potatoes, then load up the car and Evan and I are headed to Dad's for a family cookout. Hope you all have a great weekend!!

I almost forgot, could you all please say a prayer for Loren, Kari, and Cooper, their beloved dog Lola just passed away. Coopers word for everything is Lola. Also, my Aunt Tammy's grandmother in law just passed away so please say a prayer for Jason Tammy Abbie and Jasons family.
