miscellany monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1)  I come to the realization that time really does fly when your having fun.  Which makes some moments in your life just pass you by so you need to enjoy the most out of your life.

2)  Kelsie’s surprise was a success!  She had no idea where we were going.  The day we were leaving she was guessing all sorts of things…the zoo, Disney World, a water park, and she even guessed Uncle Mike and Aunt Kays.  I never gave in though.  Not until we were in Dothan.  She is too smart for her own good.  She said Momma we always stop at this rest room. {meaning the Alabama Welcome Center} And we always stop at this restaurant to eat. {meaning the BK in Dothan by the mall}  So while Zack and Kayla were getting our dinner…I told her.  She was SO excited!

3)  We stayed up late, slept in, swam in the pool, lounged in the hot tub and played hard while we were at my brothers house.

4)  When my nephew says “why don’t y’all move up here Joanna?”.  It makes me want to try even harder to get there.  When my nieces boyfriend tells Zack that there are quite a few foreclosures in the area they live in.  It makes we want to go house searching.  We all want to be up there.  It makes leaving that much harder.

5)  We have a bond with my family like no other.  It’s real family.  No picking favorites.  No choosing sides.  There is love to go around for everybody.  It’s all about everybody and not just one child over the other.  The way it should be.

6)  We are home now and it’s time to get back into the swing of things.  We only have a few weeks until school starts.  Got all the school supplies but we’ve still got to get Kelsie’s back pack and lunch box. 

7)  It’s cloudy today which makes it harder.  We wanted to enjoy the pool.

Sounds like you all had a blast this weekend. Looking at all the smiles, you can totally tell how much they love the family. We are slowly getting the school supplies but like you said it starts in a few weeks we better get ready.
Blessings!

Yeah...you surprised her! We drove through Dothan on our way to Florida this year and it made me think of that one blogger Darby who is from there. I adore that you're so close to your family...that's priceless. Looks like such a fun time.
