So our friends, Henry and Kathy are leaving us.
Moving up to Tennessee.
That stinks - our friends need to quit leaving the stinking state!!!
We will miss you guys - but will think of you every single day!!!
As a matter of fact, every time we turn on our TV we will think of you.....
This thing is the bomb!!!
We are blessed and thankful!!!!!
Dude, cool people are so cool!!!!
PS - sorry about the American Idol picture...that stinkin show has infected my house like the plague.

Wow - I can not believe that 15 years ago today...Beth and I became parents.
That is crazy!
(More to the point...we are getting old!!)
In our decade and a half of parenting, I think we have done a lot of things right, and a lot of things wrong.....
but you know what...where we fall short, God does not.....He picks us up and picks up the slack in the process... through family, friends, mentors and teachers - that is sooo cool and we are sooo thankful!
Thanks to everyone - for investing yourselves in Katelyn - and the rest of us.....we are so blessed and thankful!
Katelyn Marie - you are amazing and we love you sooooo much!

Emily has been asking to get her ears pierced for a while now, but truth be told, dad was chicken (basically).
Anyway, after church on Sunday she did it!!!
We walked down the way to Claire's, with friends: Mac, Cat, Darcy, Cecilia and the rest of the fam - all cheering her on.
The tears came, but she didn't make a peep - one ear after the next - back to back - what a little trooper!
She is so happy with her big decision.
Check it out!!

Well soccer season in the Varca house is officially over. Josh's team lost the championship game 3-2 in two periods of overtime. but they had a great season finishing in second place with only 8 players for most of the season when the other teams were playing 8. WAY TO GO STRIKERS!!!!!
Baseball season is next which we are taking a break from this year. The next sport we will be playing is basketball. What will we do till then? sounds like we will have some time for such much needed family nights. Our favorite thing is wii bowling.. EMILY ROCKS AT THAT!!!

Last night we sat in the cold drinking hot chocolate and trying to stay warm, while we watched Josh play in his soccer playoffs. He know doubt won the game for his team. While I am a proud parent talking, the other parents said the same thing. He was playing goalie, and probably stopped about 7 goals. some of his saves were like I was watching a professional game. Now if only I could get him to put that kind of effort into his school work!!! Anyway they went on to win 2-1. Next we advance to the final round for the championship Sat at 2pm.
Katie had a playoff game for her high school also, she scored 1 goal, but they ended up losing 4-3

Change is weird.
Not good, not bad, just weird.
Today was my last day at Wachovia Trust...I am unemployed now.....until Tuesday morning.
I leave behind people, customers and very routine daily tasks....some - I will miss, others - not so much.....My point?
I guess my point is that I am not sure how I feel. I should be happy, but I don't feel as happy as I think I should....I guess I will miss the people....and the familiar....I know it is beyond my control...I know that God opened the door and made this happen.....I am sure it'll be fine...
Like I said, it is weird.

Sometimes, our kids just love to help!
And sometimes, dad digs deep and buys Slurpees!
It all works out.
Katie, Josh and Emi working hard on mom's van.
BTW, yes, this is the manufacturer's recommended best way to clean floor mats.
Matt and Fuller - soon to be new daddys...remember Proverbs 22:6 - Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
Love you guys!

When you thought I wasn't looking
by: Katelyn Varca
- When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw your smile when I did good, and I wanted to do more that was good.
- When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you make dinner after a long day of hard work, and I learned I would someday have to be responsible and grow up.
- When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you in pain but you moved and I learned that it's okay to feel hurt sometimes.
- When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you cry and saw tears running down your face, and I realized that it is okay to cry when you feel like just breaking down.
- When you though I wasn't looking, I saw you hid a present that I really wanted, and I knew how much you loved me.
- When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you check my homework, and I knew that you cared about me.
- When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you buy me the phone I wanted, and I learned that you do things for me all the time because you care about me that much.
- When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you run and grab me when I got hit by the car, and I realized that you would always be there for me.
- When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you hold my hand in the hospital when I was scared, and I knew that I was special to you.
- When you thought I wasn't looking, I looked at you and wanted to say "thanks for all things I saw when you thought I wasn't looking.

We are probably really boring, sorry in advance.

We are big on peace, love and happiness...
We love our family and friends...
We love out church...
