I've been reading a blog by Dr. Mark Perry, an economics professor in Detroit, and a few days ago he had an interesting post. It showed this graph of the unemployment rates in Dec. by sector. Construction is in the most trouble, rising to 15.2%. We joined those ranks this week when Adam was laid off. Don't worry about us, I'm more than confident in Adam's abilities to provide and he has a great opportunity to start his own company.
On Friday we were able to meet up with my sister, Janelle, at the library. Tristan ran up to these stuffed animals like they were his long, lost pals. The library has a wonderful kids section. I wish I was organized enough to get there every week.
On Wednesday night we drove with Gram and Pop to see my little brother Jay earn a scout award.
Afterwards, Grandpa Don took us all out for ice cream!
