Rory Fishing

This is Rory's last week before school starts. His sister is already restricted with early bed times since her school started on Monday.

Casey's cousin Kelley has been in town and the boys have been doing a lot of fishing and Rory got to tag along for some night fishing. He thoroughly enjoyed himself and obviously feels right at home on a dock!

WOW! I'm Impressed...

I cannot get over this home make-over. It just goes to show that you can't judge a house by it's previous owner. I don't think that I would have had this much imagination to transform this house the way she has. I'm definitely going to use some of her ideas, though!

Check it out!

Thanks Devonne for the link!

First Day

There were a few tears, a few nerves, a bit of anxiety and not quite
sure where to go...but then Maggie stepped in and assured me that
everything would be fine and she'd see me at 3:30.

I wasn't prepared for my kids' lives to pass by so quickly. Next thing
you know, she'll be starting high school. I think I'll sit on her to
see if it slows things up a bit.

Last days of summer

In anticipation of Maggie and Rory going back to school we decided to take a quick trip to the beach. We had so much fun building a sand castle, a hole and crabbing.

We had a great time on the Strand shopping and eating and trying our best to keep cool! We spent Saturday at Moody Garden with the sharks!!! The kids loved looking at all of the aquarium animals. Who knew that penguins could exist where the temp outside was in the 100s?

What a great family trip. And then we came home and he did this...again!

I'm loving this new blog my mother-in-law told me about. This is my kind of DIYing.

It's called Centsational Girl

This is what happened when Sully got his hands on a marker today. It
was all over the walls, both sides of the door, all over the toys. Not
to mention himself! Oh...he's a live one!!!

He kept saying "No, no" and wagging his finger. He knew he wasn't
supposed to do it!

I'm in trouble.
