Concert Bound

Thomas and I are going tonight to see them. The kids are going to the neighbors. We've been listening to our CD's in the car and now even the girls know the words. I guess we should have gotten them tickets too.

Family Time

Long time no post. We've had a busy couple of weeks. My brother-in-laws father passed away. We had a busy couple of days. Two of my sisters came down from New York to Celebrate the life of Uncle Wes. Aunt Sharyl spent some time at the pool with the girls. We've been busy with back to school stuff the count down is on 13 days to go. This week the girls are busy with VBS every morning. I've had some me time. One day I even went in the morning to the mall before it opened and walked with the elderly. Next week we plan on finishing up our school shopping and enjoying the last days at the pool.

Quiet Day

Yesterday Madi had to get some tests done and had to fast before getting everything done. We had to get up early and head off to the Hospital. It has been very hot here so we stayed inside and had a quiet day painting, playing uno and resting. At the end of the day we got a great big rainy storm. I've so enjoyed only being with my girls this week. Do I really have to start watching kids again on Monday!?!?

The Princess Takes To The Water

The girls were a little under the weather for July 4th. The day before we took them to the Dr. and she said they had a viral thing. She gave us the go ahead to go out on the boat. I asked her if I would be a bad mom if I took them out and she said No. We were on the boat for 7 fun hours. Princess Madison finally went on the tube and had a great time. Crazy girl Syd was on the tube once again yelling faster, faster. The big finale to our night was our neighbor behind us shooting fireworks onto our roof. We are under a severe drought. Tom asked them to please stop. With that they shot another one up there. That is when I called 911. Then the police came and dealt with it. Happy Fourth of July grrrr. We didn't know those neighbors before and now we for sure don't want to know them. I don't need to be friends with someone trying to set my house on fire.

Happy Birthday America!!!!

If tomorrow all the things were gone I’d worked for all my life,And I had to start again with just my children and my wife.I’d thank my lucky stars to be living here today,‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can’t take that away.And I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.From the lakes of Minnesota, to the hills of Tennessee,across the plains of Texas, from sea to shining sea,From Detroit down to Houston and New York to LA,Well, there’s pride in every American heart,and it’s time to stand and say:I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.God Bless The U.S.A.

Everything Old Is New Again

When my mom came down for a visit back in May she brought a shirt my Grandma had made for me when I was little. Sydney got to wear it to night church yesterday.

Concert At Church

We go to Colonial Baptist Church in Cary. It's a church of about 4,000. During the summer our Pastor takes a little break and we have special speakers or music. Keith and Kristyn Getty sang at our church last evening. It was soooo good. I've been listening to the CD we bought all morning. The kids stayed in the service with us and behaved. We got to church early and got our seats. While waiting for the concert who should come sit next to us but our Pastor and his family. He sat right next to Sydney. Sometimes Sydney has behavior issues. Since we changed her diet she has gotten a LOT better. I whispered to her and said you better behave the Pastor is next to you. She wanted to know why he wasn't up front where he belonged. She did a great job and we were able to enjoy the concert.
