Summer is almost over!

Where did the time fly? Sam starts back to school one week from tomorrow, and we will have to get back into the routine of early mornings and homework . . . groan! We have had a fabulous summer this year. We went on a Disney vacation in June. We had a laid back July 4th, swimming at Aunt Kay's earlier in the day, and shooting fireworks here at home that night. Then, two of my favorite people in the world, Rhonda and Carol, came to visit me HERE in Jackson on July 24. It was the perfect day.

This summer Sam finally learned to swim well enough that I don't worry quite so much. I guess I'll always worry just a little. :) Also, he has gotten to be quite the speed demon on his bike. I love watching him ride up and down our long driveway.

We will be taking one more small weekend trip to New Orleans soon. Can't wait, since it is my FAVORITE city, and I love every minute there. I think we may go to the zoo, and stock up on some back-to-school clothes for Sam.

Until next time . . .

Hello again!

So much has happened in the last three months, I don't know where to start. The holidays were very busy, but we enjoyed getting together with everyone at Thanksgiving and Christmas. We took Sam to his first college football game in December, when USM played in the New Orleans Bowl. Also, Todd and I went back to New Orleans for New Year's Eve. Even though both trips were just for one night each, we had lots of fun.

During the month of January, it seemed like I celebrated my birthday all month. On Januay 9, Todd purchased me a King Cake for my birthday, which was wonderful. He and Sam gave me a spa gift certificate too, which I was finally able to use on January 30. We also went to see Avatar on January 10, which was amazing! On January 11, I received flowers at work from the office and a plant from my best friend Rhonda. My sis took me to lunch that day too, so I really felt pampered all day. The following weekend I went to my mom's house and spent the night, where there was more birthday cake, cash and goodies! Then Sam and I drove to Abbeville to see Todd, where we all went out to dinner together.

Now its February, and we are getting ready for Sam's birthday. It will be at gatti-town this year. Sam is really looking forward to it, and I hope he has lots of fun. I was hoping some of his cousins might come, but it looks like they will be busy with other stuff. Still, he is supposed to have a friend to spend the night, and on Saturday, he will get to open his biggest gift, which is a trampoline. I can hardly believe my little boy will be 8 years old!
