K's first half marathon 1.31 Miles

K ran in this first kids half marathon, the long doggers.  He was super excited but mom and dad were a little stressed as we got a late start leaving in the AM.  Race was at 7:30 and we live an hour away so we had to leave early.  K was all smiles even at 6:30 in the morning.  We made it in time to start the run on time.
K wanted his dad to run with him so I got to stand on the side lines and cheer them on as they came in and hand K his number as we didn't have time to get his number on before the race started.

Here they go (don't see K or Isaac) but the buzzer just went off to start the race.
K and daddy coming in to finish the race holding his number up so they know who he was

So proud of his Medal and getting ready for the next marathon.  We are planning on working towards the family run at Disney in Jan 2014

His stats
Place:19    Place by Gender:16  Race number: 2871 Name:   Gender: M  Age: 08 City:   State FL         Time: 10:53.3 Pace: 8:19
Way to go Little man!  Keep it up and getting stronger with each and every run
Love you K!
You make Mom and dad really proud with all that you do

Kitchen Project..Part 1

We are opening up the kitchen. 
When we found this house we knew that this was the right house.  With saying that we also wanted an open kitchen which this house didn't have.  Well, we put together a plan from what we wanted and have started the project of opening the kitchen. 
K has been asking us to crash something so as you can see he's part of this transformation of the kitchen.

From the starting to tear the walls down to rewiring wires needing moved. 

                      Look at how much just opening the walls makes the living area look much bigger.  The part one is completed and just waiting for the arches to be formed and dry walled. 

Stayed tuned as we finish the wall kitchen project.  This will not be a FACT Kitchen project as we plan on doing this with Cash.

Moving in

Moving in
Flora has found the best place in the house.  The kitchen walls since that don't go all the way to the ceiling.  Hubs joined her up there.  TV is still on the floor as we have yet to find a TV stand we can agree on.  Spices are finding their new home in the cabinets.
Moving is so hard he's crashed on the sofa.  K's bed hasn't arrived yet so it's just the mattress on the floor.
School room is slowly coming together

Our Closing in photo's

Our Closing day in Photos
Closing happened so fast as in we found out that we were closing the night before that there was a good chance to close that Friday.  We knew for sure Friday morning when we did our final walk through.
As we waited for everything to be finished we sat here with butterflies in the gut.  So what else do you do but snapping photo's.
Papers are signed and all cash has been handed over.  Can't say that is when we got our keys though.  LOL!  Our realtor handed them over when we did our walk through that morning along with our gift baskets.  We got a gift basket from our realtor and our broker.  What did we do right after closing?  We ran to the old house grabbed blankets and our dogs and went HOME!

Welcome home M. Family!!!

Mom and Son mini vacation

St. Augustine with my little man.
We had a field trip with our homeschool group up there so K and I made a mini vacation out of it.  Best decision ever!  While relaxing by the pool watching K swim there was just a sweet peace of being away from our every day stress that was just so relaxing.  After we were done at the pool it was time for dinner so we headed to a Pizza joint.  Pizza was so YUMMY!  After dinner K wanted to go checkout the beach.  On the way back to the hotel K asked if we can do this again.  I think it's something I want to do on a yearly basis is a 1 on 1 mini vacation.  We both needed the carefree 24 hours.
Once back at the hotel we snagged some fresh baked cookies when son asked to go swim some more before heading up to the room.  Of course we could swim for a while.  Ended up going back up to the room for a little bit to call daddy at home.  After that headed to the fro-yo shop across the street.  Not the best Fro-yo but we were having a great time.  K wanted to ride his scooter so we headed down to the pier to take a peek.  We both stated that we need to bring Daddy back here.  We are now planning a family vacation here.  We feel bad K and I have been to St. Auggie 3 times in 8 yrs. and hubs has never been here. We have to change that soon.  Enjoy the photo's 

All Homeschool Field trip photo's will be posted on our school blog

New house Tour

As you all know we Moved in February.  With the move and homeschooling I have had NO time for the blog.  As our homeschool year is wrapping up and we've been here for almost 2 months and things are finally settling down. 
Lets get down to the tour
Row 1: Our garage and sidewalk to our screened in front porch.  Front of the house.  Love the little details like this window combo to give the roof line some dimension.
Row 2: Our front door (Not in love with) Our living room entry way and coat closet.  3rd photo is the Hall way Lien closet.
Row 3: Our Kitchen Bay window.  Our closed in Kitchen.  Hello late 80s kitchen.  3rd Photo is our dining room.  Love having a dining room space.
Row 4: Master Bathroom with a HUGE walk in shower.  Love this, family room that is being used for our school room.  3rd Picture is the kids/guest bathroom.  It's a little yellow from the lighting.

it's a 3/2/2 1500sqft house not including our just under 500sqft garage.  With Citrus fruit trees :o)

Well that is our house.  Stay tuned as we move in and make this house our HOME.
