Welcome to the workforce!

Well, it has become time to introduce my son to the workforce. He has been diligently looking for a job since he turned 16 in April. He has applied at so many places it was beginning to become very frustrating for him: No, were not hiring. No, were good for right now. Thanks but were not hiring.... the same scenario for lots and lots of people. Well, good ole' mom decided to apply for him online and got him the start. He called to follow up on the online position and low and behold, he got a job!!! He is so excited. (SUCKER). Well, he is excited about getting a bank account and not having to always ask mom and dad for gas money, spending money, etc... He truly wants to work and I couldn't be more proud.

Wasp happening?

JD was stung two weeks ago mowing near the bushes that line our driveway but we just thought he rustled up a few and they showed their frustration by stinging the shit out of him!

Well, he was getting ready to mow again yesterday and took a look at the bushes near the driveway and low and behold, look what he found . . . While JD sprayed it with bee killer then we cut it out of the bush and torched it! No more stings from this hive.

HOKIES!!!



The Sweet Family headed to Lane Stadium in Blacksburg, VA for the Virgina Tech HOKIES football game.

The HOKIES beat Marshall "The Thundering Herd" 52 - 10. In case anyone doesn't know, this is the team the movie We are Marshall (with Matthew Maconaughey).


The weather was amazing and we just could not have asked for a better day! We arrived early to visit the University Bookstore www.bookstore.vt.edu then headed for the Drill field where the memorial is for all of the students that lost their lives on April 16, 2007.

JD is standing just above the memorial watching the Highty Tighties in the far distance practicing. The picture beside him is the picture of them performing.


There was a Stealth Bomber flyover in honor of all the lives lost during 9-11. This is the best picture I could get because that sound just scares the crap out of me.


And finally, Kristin and I posing during 4th Quarter. The end was nearing but we were still very happy HOKIES (until I got to the car and saw my sunburned face).

It is so funny that everyone says she looks like me but I just don't see it that much. She actually looks and acts more and more like her daddy everyday!
