Thursday, August 7, 2008


Yep, it's Thursday. That means we have two more "sleeps" until we leave for our yearly vacation. We've been counting down all summer and I've been prepping all summer as well. There's something about the anticipation (and planning and list-making, of course!) that I LOVE.

This year we will be staying in a condo in North Myrtle Beach (our normal beach of choice, although we've been to Hilton Head, Corolla, and Duck) with all of Jon's siblings and their families as well as his parents. for any of you counting, that's 17.8 people. His sister is due at the end of next month with her first! I'm excited to see the place because it's 2 levels and has five bedrooms and five full baths. And as Ella will tell you, "TWO refrigerators!"

So all week I've been getting the house nice and clean so when we come back I can spend the last week the kids have with them rather than cleaning. We've got some fun stuff planned for that week.

Football is going well. Coby is really liking it and I'm glad. I'm bummed though because his good friend will not be on his team this year as we were hoping. He made the one "National" team and we are proud of him anyway!! My Mother-in-law is taking them to practice tonight so I can go get my nails done for vacation.
I leave you with some random beach pics from the past few years.....

Still Here

Sorry there hasn't been anything interesting going on here as of late. We've been busy! We've got some plans before the summer is over and we are trying to get everything in.

This morning we are headed up to the movies to see "Charlotte's Web."It's the first free one offered that we can actually make it to! Then we will head to Tar-jeh and finish up school shopping. I thought I was done but forgot Coby's lunch bag!

Coby had football last night. It was his first full-gear practice. I think he likes it, although he gave us a hard time the other day as we were shopping for undergarments. I'm sorry, but I am NOT paying $30 for a shirt that goes under two layers of stuff when I don't even spend that much on a bra! You can settle for the Nike version, which I think is even nicer he got to pick camouflage. He has three more practices this week so we'll see how he holds up.

Alright, gotta go pop some popcorn because I'm not paying for it at the theatre. This will be an ALL-FREE experience. I'm not paying for over-priced, over-fattening popcorn!
