Bit of a rough start for Tot as this was her first day to ride a bus and they forgot her 😳! Thank goodness I hadn’t left for work yet!
But everyone came home happy. Looking forward to another awesome year for each of these kiddos!!
It’s been quite the summer.
June was a very rough month. My grandpa passed away. He was very ill and I know his passing gave him relief, but it was a very difficult experience. For the last 60+ hours of his life I was able to join my family and hopefully give him comfort, remember wonderful times and just be with family. It was a very bittersweet time.
Mom came home with me after the funeral and we spent a week trying to have fun with the kids and enjoy family. It was good to focus on happiness! It was also the 100th anniversary of my husband’s squadron. He and his fellow airmen did a fantastic job honouring the heritage of so many amazing men and women. It was a pretty rainy beginning to the week as a tropical depression was storming through, but we had a bit of sunshine too.
July was also when I began my job hunt in earnest. I was able to utilise some fantastic resources for mil families and get some fantastic help and advice. I had two interviews the third week of July and an offer by the last week – woohoo!! I start in-processing tomorrow as a case manager. Which makes tomorrow my first day as a full fledged adult, at 37, lol! Kids start school on Thursday and then the busyness begins :).
Had A LOT of fun at the Billy Bowlegs parade tonight! I’ll be honest – I thought it was a bit cheesy at first, but got into it pretty quickly 😉. And as you can see, we ended up with a few beads 😂. Grand total: T – 63!, C – 28 and I ended up with 29 strands – courtesy of Jason helping me get beads 😍!! That’s a lot of pirate booty ☠️!
Meet our newest fur baby, Beau. We adopted this sweet boy today. Decided that Mots just needed a playmate. Miss Lullah is just lovely, but she is definitely not a playmate.
Beau is about a year old. He is a Boxer mix. A lovely caramel brindle. Seems very chill. I think he will be a great addition! And just like we stopped at three kids – three dogs is the max ;)!
What a fun way to celebrate 17 years of marriage 😂😍!!
