Getting ready for France

I am beginning to pack for our trip to Paris. My suitcase will be sitting ready a week early , I hope.
My phone rings to "La vie ne Rose" by Edith Piaf, a classic french song to get me in the mood. 8 days, but who's counting !!

Happy Mother's Day

My mother is one of a kind.
A very gracious , giving spirit no one will find.
She loves her family and the Lord above all else.
She sacrificed so many things for us before herself.
She is the true sense of what a mother is,
a tender, christian woman that everyone loves.
I feel truely blessed to call her mom.
I love You!

Hurts so good

I joined the gym yesterday, and I am aching today. I know it will be a good thing, but things don't feel so good right now. Todd & Nick are enjoying working out together. Nick is ready to get buff I guess. He is a teen now !

I survived a Herpetology class

Well, I am back from a very busy weekend with my Junior Girl Scout troop. My 7 girls and one other mom went to an environmental campout at Rock Eagle in Eatonton GA. It was fantastic. We were ina lake up to our knees with nets catching baby Bluegill fish, dragonfly nymphs,and tadpoles. We took a Herpetology class( the study of reptiles & amphibians).. yes too.

We saw huge snapping turtle's GA's state turtle the Gopher Tortise, and all held a 6ft long ratsnake( he was really nice). We learned a lot and had a blast!!

My cute girl's
