Samantha Leaves for College!!!:(

Well, it finally happened!!! Samantha had to leave for college! Don't get me wrong, I am so excited for her! I hope she gets in school and has a great time! BUT...I am really going to miss her! She has been around us for soooo long! She has been Jessica's "go-to" babysitter! We always felt comfortable leaving her with Jessica and like I have said before, she takes better care of her than me, sometimes! On Friday afternoon, Samantha came over-crying, because she had just left school, telling everyone good-bye-and wanted us to go eat with the "fam" at Red Lobster. So we met Mom, Dad, Karen, Ervin and Sam at 7 for dinner. The meal went well, but when we got outside to say our farewells, it wasn't as good! The tears started flowing and by the time Samantha picked up Jess to hug her and say good-bye-I was completing loosing it!!! I know, I know...she'll be fine and so will we! It's just a part of life that when you are right in the middle of it, it doesn't seem like if will be alright!

She made it to school with her parents and they got her all set up. Rumors are that when Karen and Ervin left Montgomery it was pretty tramatic, too. But, reports are now that Samantha is getting use to her new surrounding and adjusting well, I knew she would! With both siblings and 3 cousins and an in-law over there, she hasn't gotten away from family...just different ones!

Good luck, Samantha! We love you and know you will be a great success! BUT...we DO still miss you!!!!

First Day of School

Well, the first day of school is here! It seems like our summer went by so fast! We went to Open House and Jessica sat down in her seat and tried to "strap" herself in...I think she is ready for another year of school. We have our same teachers and are looking forward to a great year!!!

Jessica ready for the big day!

Myrtle Beach

We went to Myrtle Beach with Kenny's Mom and Dad the end of July. We really had fun and Jess loved the beach. We got to go to the Braves' farm team game and we went on Tuesday night and Tim Hudson pitched on Thursday!!! It was great fun. The rest of the time we just relaxed and enjoyed ourselves. The condo had a "lazy river" that was Jessica's favorite! She can flat lay back and relax! A big thanks to Nana and Papaw for inviting us to go with them!!!
