We are so proud of our kids. Sometimes you wonder when they are younger if you are doing the right thing, teaching them good values, work ethic, etc. Our kids have shown us that even if you have made some screw ups, they turn out great. In the last week we have found out that daughter Kristin has gotten a promotion at work. She is a physical therapist at a major hospital in central Illinois. She is now the Rehabilitation Unit Manager. She, like all of the kids, is a hard worker. Daughter Amy just had a great performance review. She handles IT for the business she works for. She also entered a photo contest & is a finalist. Her picture will be on display at the Chicago Flower & Garden Show. Son Shane's news is on a personal level. He and his girlfriend are moving in together at the end of this month. Her name is Kristi & she is a really great person. Her dog Keyla is joining them so we have another "grand-doggie" in the family. As you can see, Shane has already bonded with Keyla!

Another good thing is my brother-in-laws birthday was Sunday. He turned sixty. We are going out to eat for his birthday celebration tomorrow night.
We have a lot to be thankful for. Even in times like these. Count your blessings. I know everyone can come up with a few.
