Summer is Underway....

Well, it has been officially summer now for two weeks and I love it. Everything is so laid back. It is HOT HOT HOT, this will never change see: living in Florida. Can you believe my Electric bill actually went down by 20 dollars though. It's got to be the combination of the new dryer and new dryer venting or the fact that as much as it kills me I have been leaving my thermostat on 78 instead of 76.

We are just 4 weeks away from our trip to England. I'm trying to get excited about it but of course it always comes back to how much money I have to save before we go. Why must everything revolve around money?

I just finished Jen Lancaster's latest book "My Fair Lazy" and laughed through the whole thing. She totally cracks me up. I have never been one to want to meet an author or anything as much as I LOVE to read, but I'm telling you if she ever came to town for a book signing I would so be the first in line.

Mighty Mouth's first Allstars game is Thursday night, looking forward to that. Of course,it had to fall on the same night as the first Meet for swim team. Bummer (And as per usual in my world, we found out AFTER I had already paid for the Meet)

Soccer Girl just made her first big purchase with her first job earnings a Surf Board. This has become her new thing "learning how to surf." It's pretty (can a surf board be pretty?) and she got it off craig's list so I can only hope she got a deal on it. The Englishman looked them up on line and said she did really good. Now I just hope she doesn't get bitten by a shark. You guys know how I feel about ocean water PRETTY TO LOOK AT NOT TO GO IN. (without copious amounts of Rum and Diet Coke, 38th Birthday, Archibald Beach, Krista and Kelly do you remember? The Englishman had to drive us home that day and that NEVER happens)

Well, I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and staying cool.....

A quick 1,2,3

1. Last day of school is tomorrow. I can't believe it, another year has flown by. Two of my darlings graduated from preschool and move on to kindergarten next year. I have had them both since they were a year old so as you can imagine I will miss them terribly. Their last day with me is Friday, it's going to be a tough afternoon with a few tears shed.

2. My little newbie has been with me six weeks now. She is beautiful and I am completely in love. I forgot how fast New Born's grow and she has already changed so much. I also forgot how relaxing it can be to rock a baby. You have the perfect excuse to sit down and not get a thing done all the while enjoying the contentment and cuddles of a gorgeous baby. I find it funny how quickly my almost three year old has figured out that when Suzie is rocking the baby he can get away with more because it is harder for her to get up and stop him. Kids are SO SMART.

3. Soccer girl LOVES, LOVES, LOVES her new job and couldn't be happier. I finally let Miss Priss get contact lenses and she is thrilled. She looks even older now that she is not wearing glasses. Mighty Mouth got picked for ALL STARS in softball and she is having a great time with three of the other neighborhood girls who got picked as well. (Miss Priss was to old to play for this team) Should be exciting as the coaches think this combined team has the opportunity to go really far. I'll keep you posted........
