So today my lil sunshine took off for the beach on Galvston Island for a week with my sister, Sheri and her husband and their daughter Brylee. Demi adores them all but love her Brylee and Bry loves her Dem so much that when anyone else is around she only wants her cousin!
I am happy that she gets to go and enjoy her summer vacation. She has worked so hard all year and I am so proud of her for passing her TAKS test a few weeks ago. Honestly I didn't expect it, thought she would be doing summer school but she saved it up for the final tests of the year. Thank Goodness! Now I must say that she is a great student and is an AB honor roll student with all high As and one B (87) in reading. Her least favorite subject unlike her momma. This trip is my sister's way of treating her to something special for doing so well and for being so loving and kind all of the time.
So many other things going on with all of us. We are done with school, had a school friend birthday party, a crazy day of swimming after field day, softball games, softball camp....busy but fun! Then there is Nadja who goes home in less than 2 weeks. It is really so hard to believe that a year has gone by. We are going to miss her sweet accent and beautiful smile and spirit. I know it will be a sad day on the 16th when she boards her plane for Frankfurt, 17 hours and then on to Pinneburg. It truly has been a blessing having her join our family. I would encourage you to do this if you have the room and time to have a child in your home to experience our American ways. Then there is the job hunting, resume after resume being sent out. Networking, Fbing hoping that something awesome will come up and soon. I am happy to say that I finally got my new resume done and that is a relief. Now to go and get a lottery ticket so I don't have to worry about a job anymore. Wouldn't that be nice? I would welcome those challenges and trade in all the other challenges!!!
Then, I am hoping to scrap for a bit if I can keep my eyes open. I am not feeling very motivated to get started but know if I do I will be happy. And did you see what my lovely friend, Wendi at http://iluv2scrapmilestones.blogspot.com/2010/06/real-wood-mini-book.html made today? FABULOUS!! I am hoping to scrap the challenge over at http://www.noelmignon.com/ that is due today "A Week in the Life". I have always wanted to do this so why not today right?
Ok so I must run and get my winning ticket with the cash out option!! Wish me luck.
Praying and thanking God for having his protection over Demi and my family and friends at the coast.
Thankful for this life, my faith, my girls, my home, my friends, my church family, my scrapbooking friends and the basic necessities. Isn't that all we really need and the love that is so unconditional from all of the above. So blesed and looking forward to God changing me so that I can fulfill his plans for me. I want to be the best I can be everyday and welcome the NEW whatever that is today and tomorrow should it come!!
