Summer fun to a close........

Well summer is over. For me anyway this week. The kids still have next week before they go back. I am ready for school to start. Funny how that works I can't wait for school to be over in May and I can't wait for it to get started again in August. Next week is what I call "hell" week because it is the week that I have my own children home and the day care kids. Of course throw in a neighbor kid or two and it is insane. On the bright side next week should fly by and I also get a lot of help entertaining the day care kids because my own kids do things with them. School shopping is almost done too, one more trip should take care of it. Managed to get through that without spending to much Yay!! It is so ridiculously hot right now I am dreaming of November. The poor Englishman is out in it everyday ( I can't even imagine) He loves his job but I bet he wishes he could just skip August and September. It always makes me laugh too when you are school shopping in Florida because the stores still bring in the winter stuff. Of course it is what I like to call modified winter stuff. Which means THIN fabric ed long sleeves and LIGHT jackets but still when it is 98 degrees outside you don't want long sleeves regardless of how light the material is. The girls have their last swim meet tonight and Mighty Mouth is so excited because this pool has touch pads like in the Olympics. I am not looking forward to it because this particular pool is indoors in a large glass domed building with no air conditioning so it will probably be like 110 with 100 percent humidity. We finally saw the latest Harry Potter movie last night. We enjoyed it but of course Mighty Mouth was in our room at 3am because she couldn't sleep she was scared. Guess who's in my bed now sound asleep making up for last night. Bless her heart when I got up at 7am this morning she was on the floor in her sisters room. I hate it when she sleeps on the floor because I know how uncomfortable she must be I wish she would grow out of the "fraidy cat" phase. Well enough details of our non-interesting week...Have a great weekend!!!!!!!

Mia the Kia.....

Here is a picture of Soccer Girls new car. Isn't it cute. She is so excited. She named it "Mia the Kia"The Englishman and I were also excited to find what we hope was a really good deal for a safe reliable car. Now I enter a new phase of my life. The worry constantly phase. LOL

Sweet Sixteen!!!!!!!!!!!

Soccer Girl turns Sixteen today... I can't believe it..It's funny but sometimes when she is talking to me she will have a certain expression on her face or she will look at me a certain way and I will tell her. "oh I just saw little Sydnee" It always makes her smile. It's during those moments that I catch a glimpse of what she looked like when she was little, I get these instant flashes of memories of my LITTLE girl. I just can't get over that the same little girl has turned into this beautiful, intelligent, remarkable young woman. (I know I am totally prejudice) She takes her driving test tomorrow at 10:45 and she is SO excited. I can't believe that after tomorrow she will get in a car by herself and drive away. Thank goodness for cell phones, how did parents ever let their kids out of their sights before cell phones. We will be car shopping over the next few weeks thanks to her Nanny and Grandad who have given her money for her first car. We'll keep you posted on that. Happy Birthday to my brown eyed girl !!!!!!

Not sure how clear you can see this but I thought it was absolutely adorable The Englishman and I were lounging on the beach and the kids were upstairs taking a break from the sun. Soccer Girl's best friend was with us that day. (She is the one that SG went with to New York) We called the girls on the cell phone and asked them to bring us down some Pina Coladas and sandwiches. They made us delicious drinks and sandwiches and delivered them to us with a napkin they referred to as our "bill" which said :

2 sandwiches $10.00

2 Pina Coladas $15.00

Having three four daughters to wait on you: PRICELESS...

On the back it said: From the kitchen of and the girls names....

Isn't that just about the cutest and sweetest thing??

Vacation Photos.....................

Vacation was a blast:
We lounged in the ocean.
We kayaked
We rode waverunners
We fished
We rode the waves on boogie boards
We walked the beach and watched the sunsets
We went to dinner at a beautiful sea side restuarant
We slept great
We had friends and family come down to the beach to spend time with us.
We had a wonderful time.
