Yes, she is home and we have been busy!

We have crammed quite a bit of things into 2 1/2 weeks.

Taylor returned home safe and sound. she had a great time. It took her about a week to catch up on her sleep.

We learned she is not much of a photographer but she bought postcards so  she does have some pictures. She was generous and brought back a gift for each of us. She bought herself some nice goodies and has a sack full of memorabilia and souvenirs. My favorite souvenir she brought back was sand from Omaha Beach. We placed it in a nice glass jar and have it on display.

While on her travels she enjoyed eating escargot and frog legs and she loved fish and chips in England.

Since she has been home we have had company and gone on a short trip to Dallas.

For July 4th, Matt & Mom came to visit, BBQ and watch fireworks. It was a great time. Then we headed to Dallas to see Deb, Doug, their sons, wives and kids. We had a great time catching up, eating good food and enjoying the company. The kids lived in the pool last weekend and Taylor ate more escargot and tried clams. She loved them as well. She actually ate quite a few bowl fulls.

On our days in between we  have been lazy pool side and making jewelry and other fun things. Next week Mimi & Papa will be here for T and my birthdays then they will take the kiddos back to MS. All are so excited!!! August brings all kinds of appointments before school starts and a trip to Grandma’s in Abilene. Somewhere we will do back to school shopping.

All the kiddos have summer work to do and if completed well they all will earn a prize.

Taylor has to complete Harry Potter books thru #4. She has completed 1 & 2 so far. Her reward will be mom and dad helping pay for an itouch.

Hannah has to work on spelling. She has a workbook and I will be testing her, she will earn a Nook.

Joshua ahs to read the four sets of Bob Books I bought, he will earn Mario Cart for the Wii.

Mercie has to be able to write her first and last name well and I will take her shopping at the Disney Store. In her world she heard I’ d take her to Disney World. So wish that was the prize but we both will have to make do with the store.

Hope all are well. Love ya!!!
