That was a good one!

It seems like an eternity away and in all actuality I just got back. Sure doesn't feel like it though.






Oh you bet I will be coming for a visit at your next location!

Happy End of School!! I always loved when the kids got out for the summer. Their last day was always a half day, too, with just Mass and awards. Then we'd head for Wal-Mart or somewhere to buy fun stuff for summer and vacations. Miss those days! That's a big crowd you have coming! I'm very impressed! Do you plan the stuff for them to do or do they just get out and play and have fun? I bet your boys are really excited! They are lucky to have a Mom who does things like that. Sad to say, teenagers aren't the only ones who don't RSVP. I only heard from about half of the people when I helped with my niece's shower recently. We paid up-front for way too many people, to the tune of about $20 a person.

LL really seems to have some really fun rides and attractions. It's good that it works out for y'all to split up where everybody gets to do what they like and skip what they don't. Love the pics of DS10 in the Lego car!


Have a super-fun afternoon!!

Happy 6 Months Jodi!

Is there a possible move in the works for y'all? Or am I just reading too much in between the lines with you and Shelly? Who will be my source for Pig info if you move?

Thanks Teri! I'm so happy school is out. No more getting up at the butt crack of dawn everyday, no more packing lunches, no more homework!!

Well we don't really have too many activities planned, if any really. DS10's friends all love to play kickball (his class just won the 4th grade kickball tournament earlier this week! ), so I'm guessing there will be a big game of that going on at some point. We also have the volleyball net set up. So they can play volleyball and/or badminton I guess. DS13 says him and his friends will probably just hang out and talk & listen to music. Don't you wish you were that cool again?!



It was supposed to be sunny and 80 all day. Well, it's 80. But the sun has suddenly disappeared behind a giant cloud that his right above my house!!! DS10 just came in and said it is sprinkling. This wasn't supposed to happen! I sure hope this blows over.


IDK why people can't RSVP. It especially irritates me with adults. That is terrible that you had to pay for people for the shower because they couldn't let you know if they were coming or not.


It was a fun day at LegoLand!! DS10 really enjoyed driving that Lego car!

Wow last day!! woohoo Me and the boys have until the 20th
I can't wait!!!

Dropped off another resume today. I got a rejection letter the other day-I was pretty bummed (I didn't even get an interview )

Trying to look on the bright side. My DH and I are going away for a few days to Atlantic City the week after school gets out. I need to get my mind off of job hunting for a while. It's so mentally draining.

If I don't get a position this year, I need to try to think of something else I can do. I've never had another job besides teaching I am scared to death and not really sure what I can do with a teaching degree. Any ideas???

Have a great end-of-year party Shelly!!! DS has been out of school for about a week and a half now. Of course, we go back way earlier than your kids do!

The 20th??? That's a long school year! When do you guys start?

Sorry about the rejection letter. That stinks that you didn't even get an interview. If it's anything like it is here is it nearly impossible to find a teaching job anymore. I feel so bad for the subs who want a permanent position. And the kids just out of college. There is just nothing. They are filling all positions from within or just not replacing those who retire.

The only thing I know of to tell you is to look into AmeriCorp teaching. It doesn't pay much but it gets your foot in the door for a few years. And check with your YMCA if they have a childcare program. Ours was recently looking for someone with a teaching degree for something.

I hope you and your DH have a fun trip to Atlantic City and you can relax and take a little break from the job hunting.

Thanks! The party was great, everyone had a fun time!!

I think a lot of schools have been out for a week or two now. But yes, we don't have to so back until Sept 4!!

We go back right after labor day just like you
I'll look into those options thanks!
I'm sure it'll be relaxing- I can't wait! The kids are looking forward to staying with my parents too ( b/c they spoil them!!!)

Teri--
Thank you for my 6 month party!

And to answer your question about moving-- yes, sort of. There is always the possibility of us going and we already know where we'll be next time. Almost 75% sure I'd say, but no plans in the works yet. Just-- in the future "sometime" is all we know.

Next stop...

California.



What the heck?? There's no SEC there!!

Hmm...you guys must get much longer breaks during the school year than we do!!

Hope you find something.

I'm sure your kids will have a blast with the grandparents!

Good morning! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. It was just beautiful here. We got a few sprinkles Friday afternoon and that was it! Sunny and in the 80's all weekend. Perfect!

The kids are enjoying their first official school day off by cleaning out their rooms & closets! I'm mean, I know.



So back to the TR - when I left off we were at LL and about to get some lunch.....


We trekked clear back across and towards the front of the park and finally made our way to the Pizza and Pasta Buffet!



It was kind of a strange set up, but it worked I guess. You waited in line to check in. Then you were seated. Then someone came to your table and asked how many buffets you wanted and then told you how much it costs and then you paid them. I don't really care for someone taking my credit card out of site, but what are you going to do? Then they came back with a receipt and explained where everything was and so on.

There was indoor & outdoor seating, but it was very HOT by now so we opted for some air conditioning!!

DH & DS13 while we waited for our receipt.




We were seated in the room where the pop machine was. It was self serve, so there was a lot of traffic in there. Luckily we weren't seated right next to it. And then there it was – a site for sore eyes – a Pepsi machine!!! Woohoo!!!!!!!!!!!! You never see one of those at WDW! DS10 and I were so happy! Mtn. Dew! YAY




The salad, pizza, and pasta buffet were in another room.




















The pizza there was not the best. The kids didn't really like it at all. DH thought it was okay. I could take it or leave it. Luckily the breadsticks were fabulous! The kids ate a ton of them. Apparently a lot of other people liked them too because the buffet kept running out of them. But DS13 was on it! He kept going back up and checking and would bring back a plateful as soon as they had been put out. So they filled up on breadsticks. The salad bar was very nice so I had a big salad and lots of breadsticks too!
