Adventures coming soon...

The children leave tomorrow for Space Camp!
What a cool childhood they have. These experiences are amazing and something that most children never even realize are out there.
We are very happy and proud that we can provide them with these opportunities and hope that they will one day realize what an amazing childhood they are having.

We are also on a countdown to Spain.
4.5 days and we are out of here. I need it. I need to remove myself from the drama that seems to encompass everyday life on a camp!

Spain should be wonderful. The weather seems to be in the high 60's F, sunny. We are traveling to many different cities, never staying in one more than 3 days!
The new iPad comes out in Spain while we are there...and if I have the luck to get one (since mine smashed from falling flat on it's face!) then I will try to post.
If not, then I will have to catch up with everyone on my return in a few weeks!
Happy Spring!

Melting away

The days are staying light longer, the air is slightly warming up...
so that must be Spring knocking on our door!

The weather always amazes me here. At this time of year it is constantly changing. By no means is winter completely over. There is still snow on the ground.
Just the other day, ALL of the roads and sidewalks were covered by a thick sheet of ice. It was treacherous to walk or drive on. I left my house to take my children lunch at their school, and it was like an ice rink.
Then by about 1:30 pm, as I was returning home, it was all melting away.
Yesterday we went out in just a fleece. Granted, the tennis court is close by!

I guess our blood has thickened over this past year and a half we have been here. It certainly had to make an adjustment from the tropical temps we lived in prior!

So the countdown begins...
~2 weeks until our Spring Break trip to Spain
~4 weeks, approximately, until the snow melts, we are able to see the river flow again, and the flowers and trees start their beautiful blooming cycle.
~5 weeks until I return to the warm weather of our house to oversee some of the construction of our addition!
~12 weeks until summer break and going to see Roland Garros, the French Open!!

Exciting times are ahead...
Spring, my favorite season that brings new hope and gorgeous days!
