It's been too long!!

Good morning. It's so hard to believe that in 4 weeks, I will be going back to work. It's the first summer that I haven't worked almost every day and it's really nice. I'm so thankful to be able to stay home with Abbie. She needs all the love and attention she can get. We have had a great time. We have taken advantage of the free movies a few times, gone to the park, read LOTS of books, etc. At times, I feel like I'm running out of ideas, but she ALWAYS seems to find something else to do. We have been lucky enough to be able to go swimming with friends a few times. She also enjoyed playing on the slip n slide at Mrs. Katie's house (one of our wonderful neighbors)...and that was a blast of course! She was able to enjoy VBS at both our church and BBC (thank you Gina). A few weeks after that, she got to go to Lutheridge to Kindercamp. I was a little nervous as to how it would go because she has had such trouble with separation anxiety. She did great though and had a wonderful time. She was actually sad when it was over. I loved hearing her come home singing the "camp" songs that she had learned. What a blessing it was to be able to send her!!! Hopefully she will be able to go back next year too!!

She is getting really excited about kindergarten. She asks more questions every day. It's sweet to see the things that she is concerned about. She asks about lunch, her "homework", and lately she's been obsessing about not being able to take her shoes off (she was able to take her shoes off at daycare during nap time, etc.) She asked what happens if her feet get hot. really is cute. She has been very excited about getting her school supplies. I have yet to remember her list when we go to the we have only been getting bits and pieces. Abbie will be going home most days to Gigi's house which she is very excited about. I have to say-I'm pretty relieved too. She gets out of school way before I get off work...and with her being able to go home to Mar's...she can get her "homework" done and relax a little bit before I get home and we have to do dinner and bath time and get ready to do it again the next day.

Terry and I just celebrated 6 years of marriage this weekend. It was wonderful. Abbie went to Martha's house and had a great time. Terry and I went to the movies to see "The Proposal" (which was the funniest movie I've seen in a LONG TIME) and then went out to dinner. After dinner, we went for a peaceful drive on the parkway. It was great to just spend time-ALONE and enjoy each other. Sunday morning, we enjoyed brunch at The Corner Kitchen. It was wonderful!! I'm such a lucky girl to have such a terrific husband!
Well that's about it...Enjoy the pictures! I'll try to not let it be so long before my next post!!! Enjoy your Tuesday!
