I won!! I entered a Facebook contest and won a $25.00 gift certificate for Serendipity. A real cute boutique store here in my town. My daughter and I went to go see what she would like and this is what she picked out!
A very cute Western purse. 

I'm sorry I haven't been posting much lately but we have been so busy getting the kids ready for School. We are now done with that chore and so it's on to more exciting things!

Daddies and Legos

While we are soaking up the last 2 weeks of Summer we are staying up late playing and watching movies. Crystal is on the mend slowly and sleeping very late into the morning. ALL of this will of course change in 1 week, I will make everyone start going to bed on a set schedule and then I will be an Evil Mommy

Tonight we watched an Atlas Rocket launch, It was so neat to watch and the kids were so full of questions for Daddy to answer. I miss the Shuttles, we used to watch them in school on the TV and step outside to watch it enter the atmosphere, Richard and I were just saying how we miss the huge "KABOOMS" twice and it entered/exited our atmosphere.

The night ended with Richard playing LEGOS with lil Richard. They came out of the bedroom and showed me the case for his little FM radio kit that they had put together. 
See the little guy on top holding the antenna..That's so cool!

Today I won a $25.00 gift card to a great lil boutique store here in town and I'll post pics of what Crystal and I picked out tomorrow. It was a fun Mom/Daughter outing!

Summers and Broken Bones

So we went to Delaware on a working vacation with Richard for a week. It was so nice and we got to swim every day in the Hotel pool and walk on the Trails since the Hotel butts right up against a national forest. I took many pics and posted them on my facebook. After Richard was done and we had extra time we drove back to Lancaster OH to see friends and family, We even stopped by our old house which is still up for sad. I can't even begin to tell ya'll our emotions and thoughts on this situation, It's just an never-ending chapter in our lives, We may never be done with it.

So every Summer since moving we have been able to get Crystal to her BFs in OH. Since we were there we dropped her off and got her a plane ticket to fly back home in 2 weeks, she is 14 now and it's a straight flight, no stops..We've been thru this before with no complications. Only this Summer both girls are older and "feeling their oates" as my Grandma would say...

One week Crystal's BF broke her finger while riding her horse, trip to ER and then an Orthopedic DR..She will be fine, finger will "set" and then a few days go by...

Last week there with them (last week) Crystal falls off horse and breaks her collarbone in 2 places, trip to ER with many phone calls home asking if Hospital has permission to treat ect., sling for 6 weeks and no Horseback riding for 3 months. A visit to the Orthopedic DR while in OH to get letter stating that she is fine to fly home..Maybe PT in her future but that depends on how well her 2 fractures heal and knit back together.

This is our first broken Anything in the family and I'm hoping the last for many months, but with Lil Richard climbing trees, who's to say...

We have 2 more weeks till school starts, this is the most craziest Summer we've ever had! I'm not sure how Crystal is going to do the first couple of weeks in School, this is her writing hand in the sling, Good luck there girl!

This Mom needs a glass of Wine!
