How was your summer ?!
And fill me in on what's been going on, because I haven't been around much.

Summer has been busy we've been camping/fishing a lot. Hit up VA Beach a few times and went down to Myrtle once. I have taken the kids to Jamestown, Yorktown, and Williamsburg we hadn't been there yet. Supposed to D.C. since the last time we were going to go had to be canceled at the last minute. Also going to use our free tickets to Water Country USA soon. I wish I haven't had to work so much though so we could do more. YDD birthday was last Saturday we are doing her big party weekend after next.

Beach vacations and lots of travel.  Girl child is co-captain of her cheerleading squad (junior year), is doing competition cheerleading, travel softball AND has her first summer job coaching gymnastics at a local fitness center.  I bought her her first car as well.  They grow up so freaking fast!

Boy child has been doing what he usually does.  He plays online video games and designing a game on the computer as well. 

Lots of swimming, cocktails, and enjoying the dog days of summer.

Oh and add work in there somewhere, lol.  It's been a light case load with regards to judges because it's summer and everyone is on vacation. :)

Drink one of those cocktails for me! And make it fruity with an umbrella. I need to get in beach mode. We're taking the kiddos in two weeks!! Cannot wait.

And isn't it nice that girl child has a bit of independence with that car?? Just think- no more playing taxi for practices!! :p

She just got her permit, so we have until December until she can get her license.  THEN . . . You are correct with regards to the taxi service.  Thank goodness that some of her friends drive right now, that has been a HUGE life saver for her dad and I.

Where are y'all going? :)

DH gained primary custody of SD. We got SD into the really good charter school we were trying so hard to get her into. And as of this week we are moving into a 3 bedroom aparrtment so DD and SD will have their own rooms! We didn't see SD for 5 weeks and we just got her back on Sunday.

So..kinda busy..but really good :)

Heading to Panama City beach. I usually avoid that place like the plague... but my parents are taking us so I'll go anywhere. We're all spent out after our honeymoon- but the Bahamas cruise was worth it!!!

Yes..but not until october when we have some extra cash :/ I hate that..but that's really the best we can do. (I get 3 paychecks in october instead of 2) I got DD a new bed yesterday and we're getting SD a different one next month. One thing at a time.

Yes she is. SD is going back to BM next week Wed-Sun.
