Here we go!

Hello~ We have been absent for a while, but for good reason. Between bouts of pink eye, sinus infections, sore throats and serious sleep issues, the Texas Burns family has been busy busy busy.

After throwing a party for about 30 or so friends at the beginning of August, Jared, Mary and Anna each battled severe colds and eye infections for the women. Once those cleared up, they travelled to Possom Kingdom Lake with some friends for some r & r before school began. They all went out on the pontoon boat several times, and Jared and Mary zoomed around on the jet ski for a bit. Photos coming soon.

Mary returned to Abilene in time for a week of orientation at school and to get her room set up. It came together pretty well (photos coming shortly). Today was the first day of school for everyone in Abilene, literally everyone since the universities, two public school districts and St. John's all opened their doors today. Check out the webpage to learn more about St. John's: www.stjohnsabilene.org Overall, the school day went well and Mary is so pleased to be at SJES. It should be a good year!
