Cub Scout Rocket Launch

Ethan got to build a soda pop rocket with his cub scout troop and at the next meeting they had a rocket launch.  Ethan absolutely loved it.  He is our little engineer/scientist and gets a kick out of anything that flies.  The amount of books about missiles, rockets and WWII that he brings home is clearly an indication that he needs to have an job building something or even better dismantling something. ;)

Rocking the Talent Show

    When Gracie told me that she wanted to enter her school talent show, I was a little concerned as she really doesn't play any solos yet due to the fact that she's still learning how to read music notes and applying them.  After her school music teacher and her drum teacher assured me that what she does now would be fine, we submitted her video and she got a spot.  She practiced all week and didn't seem that nervous, but once the day arrived I could tell she was feeling the butterflies.  I made sure to get there early for a front row seat because I was so excited and couldn't wait to catch her in action.  I was positively more nervous than her and it got even worse when I noticed that she was going to be the first performance.  She still didn't seem too phased by it.  However, once she started her performance, my nerves disappeared because it was simply awesome.  She can do things on her little drum set that I can't even duplicate as an adult.  I can't wait to see her talent grow and hope she continues to love playing her drums.

St. Petersburg, FL

My friends and I jetted off on our annual vacation for some rest and relaxation. 
There are no schedules to abide by, little mouths to feed or the constant need to be the entertainment.  
We love nothing more than lounging on the beach enjoying each other's company.
