Mighty Mouth's softball team won districts last night. She is so excited!!! They play in Crystal River in two weeks. In three weeks we will be getting ready to board a plane for England. The Englishman is so excited and I am so excited for him. Sometimes I forget how hard it must be to live so far away from your family. I cannot imagine living so far from my family especially my Mom. Early in our marriage the plan was to live in England after a few years of living here. Of course once we had children and established ourselves in jobs, schools, and mortgage payments that never happened. I used to ask the Englishman if he still wanted to go back always assuring him that we would make it happen if he really wanted to. He has always told me no and I have always said a silent prayer of thanks for that. We are very lucky that his Mum and Dad have always been able to visit once a year. His sisters and their families making it here when they can too. My children have wonderful memories of our last trip to England five years ago and cannot wait to stay at Nan's and Grandad's. They are proud of the fact that their Dad is from England and that in turn they are half English. And although they probably wouldn't admit it they love it when their friends say "I love your Dad's accent, it is so cool."
We are heading to Orlando to celebrate the 4th. Should be a nice time. My Aunt is treating us to a few days in her timeshare. So once again the poor Englishman will be surrounded by women (his lot in life lol) Myself, our girls, my Mom and my Aunt.
Wish him luck and have a wonderful 4th as we celebrate our independence from those AWFUL English people....(SMILE)
