When Irish Eyes Are Smiling

I thought it appropriate to add this song to our blog in memory of Grandpa Harpy and Uncle Harpy. I can still see all of us on the stage singing this song at Cathy's wedding. Uncle Harpy led us all holding the microphone singing his heart out. This is one of my best family memories. See the right sidebar to enjoy the song.

Kaitlyn has started soccer and had her first game on Friday night. There is nothing better then watching a 3 year old soccer game. I don't know what was funnier though - the kids playing or Coach Shawn Daddy trying to keep 4 kids on the field at one time - no more and no less! Kaitlyn had a lot of fun and Carrick enjoyed watching her though he would have preferred to have been out there himself. He likes to yell, "GOOOOOO KAITLYN!" Then he tries to run on the field to tackle her, too bad it isn't football.


Carrick is Kaitlyn's shadow at all times but he is enjoying his free time with me when she is at school which is going well for her. No tears at all not even the first day (I'm not sure how I should take that!) Just kidding, we are very proud of her, it couldn't have been easy but she is doing great. Ok, enough about Kaitlyn, let's get back to my little man. He is quite a baseball player. We no longer let him hit inside because it's just asking for trouble.


We hope everyone is doing well and hope to see everyone the next time we are in town.

Ryan's First Day of Pre-School



Today was Ryan's first day of Pre-school at St. Pius X. I spoke to him on the phone before he went and he told me that he was off to make new friends! Upon returning home, he jumped out of the car and told me that he "made the bestest friend in the whole wide world!" Of course, he didn't remember his name, but there's always tomorrow!

Happy Birthday Margie!


Loved much and missed even more.

Our last summer weekend





We spent our last summer weekend in Lake George on a friend's boat. Our friend Eric, let Ryan drive it. He thought that was the best thing in the world! He's just like his father! :) We saw a small boat going past us, and Michael asked Ryan if he'd like to own it. Ryan naturally responded with, "Nah, it's too small!" I guess it can't hurt to have big dreams. Happy Labor Day!
