Bye Bye Fay

hey just to let you know we are all fine here. fay brought us nothing but a lot of rain and some wind. our pool is totally full and overflowing and we have a moat around the ENTIRE house and not just the driveway like we do for normal rainstorms . but other than that it was nothing for us. the girls were even outside in their raincoats playing in the wind. there were some tornadoes close by but not so close that we had to run for cover.

we will be back in school tomorrow!!! yea!!!!!!! and no becky i will keep the hurricanes any day over tornadoes!! at least we know when it's coming and we can prepare for days before it hits!! hated dealing with that in missouri and HATED the earthquakes in california. remember that one we missed in college heidi? no thanks.

so until the next one, heather the storm reporter signing out!

Go Away Fay!!!!

you know it's the beginning of school when the storms start a commin'. this is the reason why we will NOT be in school tomorrow!!! the girls are stoked, but what the heck!!! we just got started and now we are out already!!!!!!!!!!!!

i hate hurricane season!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Back To School Blues

We are singin' the back to school blues here in not so sunny south florida. with the approaching tropical storm/hurricane we started our school year in rainy and wet mode! at least it was nice when the morning began so we could get some good pics of the girls.

the girls are excited about the new school year. i, however, am not. i love not having a schedule and sleeping in. and i love having the kids at home, most of the time anyway. but i must admit it was quite nice to only have one with me at the mall today.

happy new school year!! sarah's last first day of elementary school! ):

next year gracie will be joining them!
sarah and her buddy, katrina, who is NOT in her class this year. bummer!
