Hi everyone! It's fun to be able to keep catching up with you all.
M.L. - your trip sounds awesome...I'd love to go to Europe.
So sorry to hear about the flu Sam. It sucks getting it, especially in the summer.
Brandi, you all went back to school early! I'm glad to hear it's going well so far.
Melissa, I love the idea of camping. But around here any of the parks and such are almost as expensive as staying at a Hampton Inn ;).
Kelli - what a beautiful picture of you and your family!
Ack...August is nearly over! The boys went back to school yesterday (5th grade, 6th grade and 10th grade), and I've been off part of this week. I took a sick day today because my allergies have been awful. I woke up feeling so blech this morning. Part of it is probably due to being so tired. I wish I slept better at night.
OK they both left me. :( First day of 5th grade ( and last year at the elementary school) and the first day of High School!! I can't believe I have a Freshman that just went off with her very own Macbook Air. How did she get old enough for this? So I am anxious and sad and lonely. I have a headache. I hate school!
***GREAT BIG HUGS*** I hope today is better for you, Sam. Did they both enjoy school yesterday? It's so much easier on us when they are having a great time while they're there.
Thanks ML. They did like it. I think more Sophia than Luke. Luke was nervous but I think it was just having a new teacher. He is old hat at the school. Sophia loves a challenge so this was perfect. She found all her classes without any trouble too. She loves all but one teacher. And they start advising them on college once a month starting in Sept! WTF!! She isnt going far so we don't need advising. We have been going on and on about how great colleges are in Boston. They are some of the best! No need to go far right? I am afraid to having anyone interfere with my brainwashing,...... I mean gentle guidance.
Sam - LOL yes the good ole' gentle guidance ;) And I can't believe they are talking COLLEGE!!!!! Ahhhhhhhh!! Glad their days went well though!
Carolyn - so good to hear from you!!
Hi Carolyn! Good to see ya! :)
SAM! I forgot to tell you yesterday, and maybe others would like to hear this as well, there is a "cure" to getting the stomach bug. Don't know if it works, but I'm thinking of trying it! Welch's 100% Grape Juice once a day, and 2-3 times a day if you're exposed to the bug. It has to be the purple 100% grape...nothing else added. I'm willing to give it a shot, especially since I have a fear of puke!
21 days until Disney!!! I'm so excited!!! My kids are ready to go. Tyler already has planned out what he is packing. He's also super excited that he's finally tall enough to ride some of the rides he has been longing to go on!
Long weekend...yippeeee! Unfortunately, it's 2 EARLY mornings for us. Connor has his tournament that he was asked to be in this weekend. The games are an hour away too...first one at 8am. Ugh. Look out Starbucks....
