Life Moves On

Wow, it's been an eventful week. The summer is coming to a close and I would like to tell you what the girls have been up to.

Ashley has joined ROTC.
She did a week of orientation and she is loving it. Today Ashley is volunteering with her unit at an Italian Festival at the Convention Center. She may have just found her niche. I really hope she does well, because this could mean so much to her future.

Taylor, like always, is the All Star. Just this week, she has received congratulatory letters from Alexis Tibbetts, our Superintendent of Schools
And our State Senator Don Gaetz, who is our previous Superintendent of Schools.
In recognition for her being one of the top mathematic FCAT scores in the state. her score was almost perfect.
I am so proud of both of their achievements. They are such great kids, and they teach me so much.

These past few weeks haven't been easy for them either, but somehow they remain so positive and keep their smiles firmly on their faces.

ROCK ON LADIES! You are the best there are!

You must be so amazingly proud of both of them. You know how I feel about the Air Force! And math and I have never been friends, so I have nothing but respect for your daughter.
All of you rock!

Mothering skills expose themselves through our children's lives. There's more to being a mother than just giving's the love, nurturing, understanding, giving of oneself, and more all rolled together that make the difference, and we can see that your girls have all of these things. I know you are as proud as a mom could be!!! Congrats to Ashley for achieving such a high score!!! That is awesome!!!!

I've been so busy trying to meet my deadlines by the 1st, but it just isn't going to happen! And I am behind in reading blogs, just never enough time in a day for me. Here it is almost 1am, and I had coffee today, no breakfast, lunch or supper yet! Think I'll go fry me up a nice juicy burger!!!

Still think of you so often throughout the day. Glad you are back to posting again!!! I've missed you!!!!!!

(((((((((( MORE HUGS ))))))))))
