My Son's Wedding

Here are some pictures of my son's wedding, He got married on Sat. May 15th. It was a very nice ceremony and they both looked so happy. You would be proud of me, I only started crying when the pastor started... I regrouped myself and was good for the rest of the wedding. I have had so many emotions before and after the wedding, It really is one of those moments when you know things will never be the same again. As you can see in one of the pictures Kelly wore a dress! She says that's it for dresses : ( I guess I am not a good example for her, this is the first time I had a dress on in over 10 years....

Selling Homeschooling Books ect.

I have been having a tough time selling my A Beka books, I have them listed on the A Beka for sale yahoo group, Homeschool used books site, thinking about listing them on Ebay, Do you have any suggestions? In the past when I have used the Apologia series I would just either trade them or sell them in a day.

As you know my son is getting married in 11 days, I thought it was going to be just her family and ours, a small simple thing. I now hear that his girlfriend has invited 150 people. They don't expect that many people but she never put an RSVP on the invitation so they can't be sure.... they are just having findger foods & cake for the reception but still not knowing how many you are having - Yikes! I still have to get dresses & shoes for Kelly & I to wear. We get an unemployment check this week so I hope to get out there and find something. I am going to hit the salvation army store and any consignment shops in the area, I am sure we will find something (I hope!).

It has been so hard to focus on school work! It was soooo hot again yesterday. Kelly's room was like a hot box. I put the window air conditioner on in the living room so we could watch a dvd on President Truman, It was just speaches he made but Kelly was glad to hear what his voice sounded like. We also watched another dvd in the "Earth" series it happend to cover oceans.... every time it mentioned the animals and how we so need our oceans to be healthy for all living things to survive we kept thinking of the oil spill : (

Have a Great Day!

Roasting Already....

Wow, Did it get hot here in Florida yesterday!
We were in the pool a lot just trying to stay cool, the house was like a sauna. When I checked the temp. had gotten to over 90 degrees in the house - Yikes. I put the air conditioner on (which I hate to do!) because the animals were just too hot. It never really cooled off, our air conditioner doesn't really work it needs to be replaced but who has money for that : ( Today with the heat index it is supposta get into the triple digits. I had a feeling this summer was going to be nasty, I just didn't think so quickly.

Our local paper says we will be seeing the oil spill on our beaches - That is soooo sad. I can't imagine what all those poor animals are going through. Then to top it off our gas is already going up - We are at $2.95 a gallon.

Hope everyone has a great Sunday!
