Long Time No Blog

Yes, it has been a long time since my last post - six months to be exact.  A lot has transpired since then.  I've had 3 parties -

A graduation party
A baby shower

An 18th birthday party 
I've sent two sons off to the prom with their sweet girlfriends...

Taken my son to have his Senior pictures taken...

Attended award ceremonies and Senior luncheons and recognition services for Josh...

I've created 10 scrapbooks to give to the children in my class at the end of the year.  That's a labor of love, but a lot of work.

I've moved one son home from college, while getting a second son ready to go off to college. I've attended college orientation for my second son and I did nothing to embarrass myself like I did at the UGA Orientation,.


Then I moved two sons off to college, one two hours to the north of my house and the other two hours to the south.

 And on top of all this I prepared to move 500 miles away to Louisiana. I will not even go into the nightmare that the move has been, but I will say that we are in our new house and I'm making headway into getting us settled. I do love our house, but it has been difficult going to a house that is half the size. I've lost a breakfast room, a bathroom, a bedroom, a garage and a large storage closet. Finding a place for all the things that were in those rooms has been tricky. I'm getting there though.

Good bye old house

Hello new house

We are enjoying Louisiana, however, as it turns out, I'm not a big fan of Jambalaya (it's too spicy for me!), and I have not run into many heavily bearded men in camo or people with thick Cajun accents who catch gators!  The Louisiana accent is much different than I thought it would be actually.  Not many people have a thick Cajun accent, but instead sound very "Yankee" to me.   I would have sworn our real estate agent was from Long Island, but turns out she was born and raised here.  One thing I have seen a lot of are people wearing Saints and LSU jerseys!  My youngest son and I try to count how many people we see wearing team jerseys when we go to the store.  On Friday Luke's school is allowing the students to wear their favorite team jersey instead of their uniform shirts.  I'm sure Luke will be the only kid wearing a University of Georgia shirt with an Auburn jacket!

I know this has been a long post, but I wanted to tell you what I've been up to and to let y'all know... I'm Back!!!
