We've been super busy!
WOW! Where does the time go? Tim, Caroline and I have been very busy this summer and now it is September!! We traveled to Kentucky to see Tim's parents and friends to celebrate his brother's birthday, Caroline started "school", my aunt, uncle, cousin and mom came into town for two short visits, we went to our neighbor's annual crab bake, and our singles tennis season is coming to a close.
School is going great for Caroline. She attends every Tuesday and for the month of September, she will be attending on Wednesdays as well. We love to get her artwork and LOVE hanging it on the fridge! She is cutting her molars and oh my goodness are they a PAIN! She is running the low grade fevers and has been pretty clingy/irritable. One day, I am the only one that can hold her and the next day, it is only Tim. We will be glad when they finally come all the way in! So far, we have been lucky and haven't gone to the doctor for a sick appointment, only wellness checks.
Our neighbors had their annual crab bake and our friend from D.C. flew in for it. We had a good time and Caroline was of course the hit of the party! We stayed away from the crab this year, as a couple of years ago, Tim ate ALL the crab and became EXTREMELY sick! We now just go for the sides and the fellowship. :)
Tennis has been going well for us. Tim is finishing up his singles leagues and we are both starting our doubles leagues. I made it to the elite eight in one league out of 355 people and tomorrow night, I play in the championship game of another league. I'm nervous and excited all at the same time. I have several "fans" coming to support me, so perhaps I am more nervous than normal. The good thing is that the championships get to be played at my home court, so I'm not at a "center court" being watched by a bunch of strangers. Last Monday, I played in the Labor of Love Breast Cancer Tournament and my partner and I came in second in the silver flight. That was exciting since last year, we didn't even come close!
Stay tuned for some great pictures of Caroline in her UK cheerleader outfit! GO CATS!!!!
I am the mother to a wonderful little girl named Caroline. We have been home from Guatemala for a few years and life has changed tremendously for us. I was a teacher, then a stay at home mom, and now I'm back to teaching full time. I am an AVID tennis player, dog and cat lover, coupon clipper, pathetic cook, and obsessed with coffee! I HATE cleaning and doing laundry. I am now trying to juggle LIFE one day at a time!!
