SURPRISE!!!! Sorry to be MIA, just lots of stuff going on (as usual, as you all as well!). The kids start school on Wed. 24th. Makenzie is sooooooooooo excited for middle school. She had her orientation yesterday (even made it on the news!!!) and she can't wait for school to start! She got the BEST teachers!!!! I'm happy for that! Garry and Brooke have started football and cheerleading practices and Makenzie has started soccer as well! When we got back from Disney/Washington it seems we haven't had time to breathe! Anna Marie is back at BG starting her final year!!!! she moved into a house this year with 4 other girls from her sorority, and seems to be very happy! She turned 21!!!! on Aug. 7th!!!! Can't believe that, but it's true.

Sandy, the fire was at the bowling alley that has been there since I can remember. The fire started in the bar/kitchen area and burned pretty good. They are going to fix everything and reopen. The smoke looked worse then the fire. The fire was contained to the food area.. they now have a sky light that they didn't before..lol!!! And some alleys have water damage, but most of the building remains. The facebook page seems like a good idea too, since I see more people on facebook then checking in on the DIS. I do check in here, just haven't lately with everything going on around here. I say we do both!!

Susan, glad to hear about Turner. I know he will do wonderful!!!

Well, gotta run! (as usual!) Going to the Browns preseason game tonight. The football/cheerleaders have a car wash tomorrow so we will be there!!!

Will check back in later!

The first host family Turner was assigned to had 3 boys and Turner had his own room. Unfortunately, the school he would have gone to was not up to my standards so in order to change schools he had to change host families. This family has one son, age 8, and he plays hockey too at a mite level. The parents are both from Canada and have been wonderful throughout the transition. I thought I had posted that before but who knows. Thelast month has been a big fast blur.

We are heading to Philly next Friday to go to the preseason games. I can't wait for his season to get started so he can get settled into a routine. He has been in HELL WEEK pre-season camp this week. It ends at 5:00 tomorrow then they are having a pig pickin' awards banquet for the pre-season camp. He should be done around 9:00pm tomorrow. He is hoping to come hope Sunday and go back Monday morning.

I'll keep you all posted.

Kaleigh got a blue ribbon and and outstanding ribbon at the fair today for her 4-H project!!! I am so proud of her. The judge said it was the first outstanding ribbon she had given out today. They had different judges for different projects. Kaleigh was in there for about 10-15 minutes. Jerry nd I were waiting outside and we see Kaleigh. She was just talking away. I was just hoping she would get a ribbon. We have talked before hand to not be dissapointed if she didn't get one since this was her first year. I never expected a blue ribbon plus the outstanding ribbon.

This is going to be a busy week with school and fair. We started school on Monday. We had a good first week.

Julie, unbelievable about Anna Marie in her final year! Congrats to Makenzie getting all her teachers. Teachers make a HUGE difference with the students accomplishments in their classes but knowing her she would be fine with a dud!

Great Job Kaleigh!!! Congratulations!!!!! Very exciting!

Denine - How did it go for you for the stuff you entered in?

Julie - Wow, 21 and her last year...very exciting!!!!!! Her birthday is the same day as my BFF. Sounds like your kiddos will be back to a very busy school/activities schedule again!

Susan - Wow, Turner looks so grown up like he is in college. I hope things get easier for you.

My girls started high school today, yikes!

Thanks Heidi! Kaleigh was flying high all weekend from her ribbons. We went back to the fairgrounds yesterday to drop off my cookies and we were looking at all the 4-H projects. Kaleigh was the only 8 yo to get an "A, outstanding". In fact, she was the only 8 yo old we saw. Most of the other outstandings were teens with a few 9 yo's. Kaleigh was the youngest you could be to be a full-fledged member. You had to be 8 and in 3rd grade on Jan 1st. Most 8 yo are in 2nd grade.

My stuff was judged last night and this morning. I'll find out tomorrow when we go to the fair if I won anything. We will also be at the fair Thursday, Friday, Sunday and maybe Saturday.

Susan: Turner looks so grown up!

Heidi, I can't believe the girls have hit high school. I am thinking they were about 3 or so when we met them.

Denine, you guys are "living" at the fair this year. I bet you are soooooooo proud of Kaleigh. I know I would be!

Total of 25 lbs off so far.

Mom - That is so awesome!

Denine - I have never been to a Fair so it is interesting to me all the things you are posting about all the different things you and Kaleigh have entered. I have no idea what Fairs consists of!!!! The Fair in CO is huge and far away so there is no chance I would go to that one!

Ya Heidi. I was thinking that you have been robbed of a fair! Back home, they aren't state fairs, they are county fairs.

I probably am missing out on county fairs, but I'm glad I am a city girl! Our state fair always has big country singers performing but I'm not much of a country girl! I will keep my huge amusement parks and water parks!

The funny part, Heidi, is Wyoming's state fair is probably closer than ours.

Susan, I can't get you and Irene out of my mind. What's the latest on Hurricane Irene?

I had to post in here..... Just doesn't seem right that the Oct.19th thread ups and dies on the DIS. That is where we all started.....

Still liking the FB thing, just don't want our thread to close here.

LOVE Turner's picture!!!!
