Off and running ...

Summer has taken off like a shot.  We took the girls to Disneyland the end of April and had a wonderful time.  We drove down and back taking two days each way.  On the way home, I told Dave and the girls that we were flying next time.  Got home and my sister called and asked if I wanted to tag along to my niece, Ashley's, graduation from Cal State Fullerton.  So a week and a half later I repeated the two day drive.  Am so happy that I went though, had a blast on the road trip with my sister and brother-in-law.  Dave was in charge of the girls for six days and did a great job.  Emily really missed me and I was greeted by her jumping into my arms when I got home.  The last couple of weeks of school went by quickly and ended on the 7th.  Rewarded the girls with a mini bike for their awesome grades.  Abbey made honor roll all three trimesters in 7th grade and Emily also excelled in several areas of her grades (they don't give A's etc. in elementary school).  They have been speeding around our property and are having a blast.!  Off to the Oregon Coast (Beverly Beach near Newport and Lincoln City) next month for a week of camping.  Am also hoping to get to Sacramento to visit Ashley's new apartment.
