Hmmm...what's new???

Well, not a whole lot going on in the Santolin house.

As you know, a few weeks ago I got T- Boned 3 blocks fr om our house. Nice? All is well and my car is on the road but is still in the need of surgery...speaking of..Since Joe has recovered from his surgery, my little blue turbo zip machine will now get hers. She needs a new undercarriage, possibly new struts in the front, some body work and paint to the front quarter and driver's side door. Lots more stuff I'm sure, but I'm not the car person in this family..


Joe got his new rear differential in his the 56 Beetle just needs to be tore apart!


Cora is loving valley ball! She said they won their game tonight! She's been getting up really early for practice every morning. She is very committed to it. We're proud of her!

The dogs are fine. Fall arrived today Fall Colors so we know a freeze will be on its bitter way hence relieving poor Kenzo from his allergies.

Josippi is recovering well from his surgery and is back to normal duties. I still get on his butt when he dares to lift anything heavy in my presence...

Me? Well...nuthin new with me other than my hair, but that's a given. I can't ever seem to stop changing it. I knew I'd put that Barbering degree to good use some how!

The BIG Dance!

Cora had her first school dance tonight! It was for 7th & 8th graders. She was so excited. We made jewelry to match her dress and did her hair up in curls. She had an absolute blast!

Getting did her hair.

Here she is with dad.

Labor Day Weekend

It was beautiful weather for our 2008 Labor Day weekend!
Saturday Cora and I were in the Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival parade. We walked for HASDA (Hawkeye Area Down Syndrome Association).

Here is Rylee and Majia holding the banner.
