Our Summer so far….


VBS at church this was the hallway I worked on with a couple other ladies. This is bird watching in central park.


The subway tunnel covered in graffiti



The new project of my boys – before       During the rebuild

the whole body was disassembled sanded primed and the cab has been painted. They still have a lot more painting. NO it is NOT going to be yellow it is a gloss beautiful black. The cab is done and looks awesome! My son has been totally hands on in this process which is going as school credit. Plus he will receive the blessing of having it to drive.


We have had another rescue this year this time four babies fell with the nest in our chimney. Luckily I had a another small basket laying around. We found if we place them in a basket then lower them down the chimney the mom and dad takes them make and finishes raising them. Even after we have handled them. The chimney swifts are so extremely soft and loud.


The last week of June we spent at orchestra Summer camp. It was like a vacation for me. My husband arranged it so that M, TH we spent the nights at mimi’s and papa’s. T, W we spent at Aunt Arla’s. Tuesday I was totally surprised by Arla, her and her four spent the day setting up for us to come. It was liking checking into a hotel. Very, very relaxing and enjoyable. On Wednesday we attended church with the cousins, they always look forward to seeing each other.


Couple weeks ago we ventured out for day of fun and a touch of education. We spent the day over at De Leon Springs. Was wonderful the water was very cool 72 degrees. LOL it felt 042much colder going in, weirdest part was standing on shell and cypress tree knuckles. In the center is the spring that leads to under water caverns that you can scuba dive in. My friend I have not canoed 267469_1967471622062_1101074416_31919561_3584134_nin years and children have never been so she rented a couple of them and ventured down the lake.282578_1966977529710_1101074416_31919152_5687717_n284524_1967494982646_1101074416_31919586_3272863_n

073We have managed to go the beach about three times this summer. First we had a wonderful memorial day on the beach we even grilled dinner on the beach love memories like this. Second time at last minute my husband had work at the beach house so we went with him. Well he worked sadly, the kids and I spent a couple hours enjoying the beach. Then this past Tuesday we drove on the beach and enjoyed the most wonderful beach day with our friends.

What was to be just a couple hours turned into an all day thing. I am so very thankful that she called me the night before and told be to leave my three younger ones with her. Thank you Julie for being a true friend to me and my children and being there when I need someone the most.


As August comes so does many of the activities that we are involved as extra curricular. We also we be beginning our new school year.

I pray you all have had an enjoyable summer as much as we have had.

Pray update….

Since the last post we did see the Nero, actually two one was new to Nemours. They both saw what the eye dr. was seeing so the MRI was ordered. He said he did not feel it was a tumor that my son was to healthy. So truly we were sitting here saying why even do it then. But we followed through and….

The MRI has come back revealing a Mucus Retention Cyst.

I receive a call from our Pediatrician telling me we are being referred to an ENT so they can evaluate if surgery is needed.

Ok at this point I have about three different shocks going on: First why is my pediatrician calling in place of the Nero or my eye Dr. that referred us to the Nero. Second the MRI actually showed something and Third, did I just hear the word surgery?.

We have an appt. for the ENT. Meantime, I did some research on line to be informed and I went to my friends husband that is a Dr.  With out MRI all this is based on the info we have eye issue right side, cyst right side headaches from eye. The cyst can be putting causing the optic nerve to look as if it under pressure indirectly. That if it is the cause of it removal is the form. Also found out just  because it is called mucus retention cyst does not mean it is in the sinus, it can be anywhere. My Mother in Law said he probably just needs a strong antihistamine, it is allergy season. It would be nice for it to be taken care of that simple.

For now I am done with the guessing game and trying to figure it all out, our Lord knows mine, my husbands and my sons worries and he will take care of us.
