Potty Training


I was talking to Mom about it the other day. She told me that Ben was interested in potty training. I think that would be a good idea.

Austin, Ben, & Connor are basically Me, Sharon, & Barbara. With the two younger being twins and the oldest not.

I remember being a kid and not wanted to go to bed yet cause my little sisters were still up, no matter how tired i was. I had to prove that I was the older sibling and that because I was allowed to stay up later than they were I would.

I think the same thing will help Austin. If Ben wants to be potty trained mabe he'll realize this and try to get potty trained before his little brother does.


P.S. This winter break I wil again be working MCWB Architects as well as Bella Napoli. I'll see everyone soon!

Summer / School

Last night I went to Jenny's with Mom and Mister to see the boys before we both went back to school. I took a few pictures of them.

left: (l to r) Ben, Austin, & Connor; right: (l to r) Connor, Austin, & Ben

The picture on the left was not an easy one to get. They were all tickling each other, I had to move them around, change their order. It was nuts! But I love the result. Don't you? They are so cute!

The summer is almost over. It really flew by. Tomorrow is the last day at my internship. I like working there, but I'm ready to be done. I go back to school on Aug. 27th. I hope its a good semester. Then soon enough I'll be back home on some vacation. See you then...

Summer Vacation

The summer has almost come to an end, or it feels like it anyway. I can't believe were already half way through July. Where did the time go?

Next weekend is the beginning of our "vacation". That first weekend Mom, Sharon, Barbara, and I are going on our shopping trip. This year we will be going to New Jersey.

Right now my room is in comstruction. I'll have to up a picture when I get a chance. I have been sleeping in the family room. I'm squished in there with all of mine and Pat's college stuff, but soon it will be done and everything can go back to normal.

Then I'll have to start packing to go back to college. Is everyone ready for school? I know I'm not! I like summer vacation. If you can even call it a vacation.

This is a picture of me at graduation. Graduation was held on May 20, 2006, which was also my 20th birthday. I graduated from SUNY Delhi with an Associates Degree is Architectural Technology. In the fall I will continue college at SUNY Delhi in their new Bachelor's Degree program. From there I will transfer to receive my Master's Degree in Restoration/Preservation (Architecture).

Hey Jenny -

Actually I didn't know that. I was just a kid then, remember...LOL. But there wasn't actually anything that you could have helped me with. We had to design a building and we just followed the steps in our notebooks. But thanx though. I'll keep that in mind in the future. I hope to see you guys soon. Luv ya,


P.S. That's a really cute picture!

Mother's Day Brunch

Hey Cindy- mom said you just got done with a huge project on steels. You know you could have called. I did major in metals.

P.S. The phone is okay!

Friday, May 12, 2006

Aww, I can't go to the girl's party. I want to go! I finally finished that huge project that I have been stressing over lately. I can't wait to come home. I'll be coming home on my birthday (the day of graduation) after the ceremony. I'm not sure how long its gonna take, hopefully not that long. The ceremony starts at 1PM. I won't be starting at my summer internship until the 5th of June. Hopefully we can have a BBQ at Mom and Dad's once everyone is home. That would be really nice. I'll talk to everyone soon.

Jenny - Did your phone break or crack from being thrown? Hopefully not.

** Party **

This is FINAL.

The family party for the girls is this Saturday, 13 May 2006. We tried to work around other people's schedules and IT DOES NOT WORK ! ! ! ! ! !

If this does not work for you, YOU can explain it to Autumn and Summer.

Have a nice day.

Last weekend I went to Fallingwater, Kentuck Knob, and the Ohio Pyle Falls. I had a lot of fun. I put a picture of Fallingwater on the side for those of you who don't know what it is. We camped at the Bear Run Nature Reserve. The campsite we stayed at was about a 3 mile hike into the woods. It wasn't that bad of a hike, except my allergies were acting up, that was kind of annoying. If you ever have the change to go I would highly suggest it. You can't even image it, the picture doesn't do it justice. I have been there twice now and each time I saw something new. I have many other pictures, if anyone wants to see more. I can't believe the school year is almost over already, but I'm glad that it is. Graduation is coming soon, as well as my birthday. Can you believe I'm going to be 20 already? I sure can't. Everyone is getting so old. I'll be home in about two and a half weeks. I will see all of you then. Hopefully everyone won't be too busy and we'll be able to have a few BBQ's this summer like we did last year. I know everyone has busy schedules, but I'm sure we'll be able to get together. See you soon! Jenny, do you have any pictures of Austin with any of his teachers? If you did you could get a really cute frame and put their picture in to or something. That would be my suggestion. ♥CiNDY♥

To add pics- go to 'get your own blog' at the top of the page. This will load the Blogger Dashboard. You should see a green cross next to the blog listing. When you click ont he cross, you begin a new post. On the upper menu bar is an icon of a picture. Click on it and it will give you the option to download photos.

Any problems, just ask. I will also add the Shuey Family Blog to the listing at right.

Pictures on the blog

Cindy- if you click on the "Get Your Own Blog" button at the top of the page, it will open your 'dashboard'. From there you will see something that says new post (a green cross). It'll open a posting window. On the bar across the top of that is a little picture icon. Click the icon and it will bring up a new screen to choose images.

Make sense??

Blog Stuff

Jenny -

How do you put pictures on the blog?

Em -

Will you add Amber's blog to the rest of our blogs?

I don't know if everyone has heard or not, but this summer I got a job at an architects office in Albany. It's called Mesick, Cohen, Wilson, Baker Architects. I'm very excited. They focus on restoration and that is what I'm really interested in. I'll see you all soon.

Vacation News

Barbara and Donnie got back from Mexico last Sunday. Barbara had a wonderful time. She took some great pictures. I am so glad Donnie agreed to take Barbara. It was a great chance for them to really get to know each other. Sharon certainly missed Barbara, but she managed to stay very busy!!

Pat is home for the Easter weekend. I can't believe he'll be done with his first year of college soon.

Cindy is home from North Carolina. She went with her school roommate, Becca, and Becca's boyfriend, Ian. They spent the week with Ian's brother in Wilmington. He is in the Coast Guard. They had a great time and Cindy even got a tan.

The weather is wonderful. I'm so glad spring is finally here.

Happy Easter!

Hi All,

The weather here has been crazy. This past weekend it was really nice I was finally able to wear my skirts again, but then starting Monday it's been snowing. Not a lot of snow, but it's still annoying. How is the weather where you all are? School is quickly coming to an end. Graduation is on May 20th this year, my birthday. I am going to attend. Let me know if anyone wants to go, I'm not sure if you need tickets or how any of it works or anything. It's almost time for my Spring Break. I don't know who knows, but I'm going to Myrtle Beach. I will be home for Easter though. After I leave Gram's I'll probably head back to school. Hopefully I'll get to see everyone before I head back. What is everyone up to? I haven't heard from some of you in awhile. Hopefully others will start posting on here soon. I'll see ya soon.

Hey All!

I hope everyone is doing well.

Jenny - Sometime I'll have to get those measurements of your house to work on the upstairs floor plan.

Mom - Write on the blog sometime, let me know if you don't remember how to or anything.

Sharon - You need to make a profile for the blog and start looking at colleges.

Barbara - I suggest a college that has both architecture and engineering, because then if you end up changing majors you won't have to change schools.

Daddy - I put the letter in the mail this afternoon, you should get it sometime soon.

Mister - Get on the Blog!!!

Keep me updated on what's going on with all of you!
