Labor Day

Since Tropical Storm Lee decided to grace us with his presence most of our Labor Day weekend was spend inside! But we made the best of it!

Landen got some board games

And we spent time playing them.

Nana and Papa came to visit! We messed up helped Nana with her school work!

And even took them bowling!

We did make our way to the beach! The normally calm Gulf was not so calm!

And the wind was blowing!

Lee decided to make is presence known even at our house! This is our lake front yard!

The day after Lee, you would have never know anything had happened here!

As always you can head over to Wife of a Sailor and check out what other military spouses are saying!

1) My plans for this weekend include hanging out at the house and possible going bowling, but what I’d really like to do is at the beach but thanks to the tropical depression that doesn’t look like it will happen.
2) I consider the Labor Day holiday end of summer……SAD!.
3) My favorite meal for cookouts is I am actually trying pizza on the grill so it might be pizza after tonight!, but my hubby wouldn’t agree.
4) So far, my favorite part of summer has been well there has been so many this summer! Shane came home, family beach trip, the move! Really been a great summer I am sad for it to end!.
5) When it comes to deployments, my philosophy is be sad and then put on your big girl panties and deal! Your world will only fall apart if you let it!.

School Days!

My babylittle boy started school last week and it made me a little sad. He is growing so fast. It amazes me that 3 years ago he was just my baby and now he is telling me “I go to school, you come back later!” I couldn’t even get him to sit still long enough to get a decent picture so they were taken after school.

And he’s off!

Saying goodbye to daddy!

Now momma’s turn!

He has already found toys to play with!

The after school First Day Picture!

So lets hope that momma adjusts as well as Landen has! Its probably not going to happen but I can dream right!

Landen’s dragon

Sad! The waves washed it away!

He is a resilient little guy, he just moved up the beach and started again!

Ok so today was not “wordless” maybe I can do better next week….. probably not!

Ok so this is a day late cause I had to go out of town to take care of a few things yesterday. But here it is

1. It’s now June (woot!)… what plans do you have for the summer?

We have lots of plans for the summer. I want to take the kids to the zoo, Landen has a summer camp, we will be headed to the beach for a week, and finally we will be PCSing to Eglin AFB (for the nonmilitary readers that means moving)
2. What is your favorite summer memory as a kid?
We went to the beach every summer with our family, (grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins) it was always a great time and we still do it today. I hope my kids have the same great memories that I have from those trips.
3. If wild animals could be made pets without fear of them ever being dangerous, what kind of exotic animal would you want as a pet?
I think I would get a Siberian tiger, I think they are beautiful.
4. Is there anything about deployments that you do like? submitted by The Thrifty Military Wife
I think that I enjoy the saving money, we all know that we don’t get paid much so the extra pay always helps!
5. I’m starting to run out of questions again… so please give me a question you’d like to see (off-the-wall will most likely make it because we seem to have used a lot of the “traditional” ones).
Is there anything that you do to help supplement your family’s income?
