Date Days

My husband texted me this morning asking if I'd like to go on a lunch date with him today. It really blessed my heart knowing that he was thinking of me and wanted to set aside some time together. I'm heading to his job in a little bit and we are planning on trying out a new place. It's a beautiful day to enjoy a picnic lunch. Since he'll be traveling tomorrow to Chicago for work for a few days, our lunch date has the perfect timing. :-)

I've been meaning to do this for some time now...

It has almost been 3 years since I last wrote something here. It's not for a lack of subject matter or desire, but of time. At least the lack of time was a reason for a good stretch of these last few years, but now it's just a matter of getting back into it. I sure miss it! 

I have been wanting to update my blog look, but don't exactly remember how and it seems I ran out of space to post pictures, which I really enjoy including. If I can figure these things out, I think I'll be back at this full force. :) 

A quick Busse Family update for those of you that might be reading this and don't live nearby...

Austin is a junior at Michigan State University and is studying Food Science. He spends quite a bit of his time at Cru as a discipleship leader, with his girlfriend, Carly, who is from Boyne City, and studying and spending time with his friends.

Braaten is a freshman at Michigan State. She has made some amazing friends, spends time at Cru also, and is busy studying. Her major is journalism. She loves being a Spartan, traveling, and spending time with her friends.

Melanie is a junior in high school. She keeps very busy with her studies, playing volleyball and tennis. She just made 2nd singles for the girl's varsity. We love watching her! Pretty soon she'll be dancing in her annual recital and getting all ready for prom before you know it, but first things first! Spring break is almost upon us and we get to go to Cancun! Woo-hoooo... That especially makes this Michigander happy!

Grant is a freshman in high school. He is a funny kid! He just keeps us laughing around here. He recently joined the golf team and is excited to learn the sport a lot better and  also make his older brother proud. Austin loves golf and wants to teach Grant what he knows. 

Cooper is also a freshman and recently made it onto the JV baseball team. If you're tracking with me here, you realize that we have 3 kids in 3 different sports. Lord, help us! Coop has always loved playing baseball and making the team has made him more excited than I've seen him in awhile. He is a cheerful, happy kid usually, but this has definitely made those emotions increase. 

That's it for now. I have to get down into my office and do some paperwork. No chiropractor likes that job much as far as I can tell, but it has to be done! 

Thanks for reading.
