Back in the swing of things

Torrie is well on her way as a 6Th grader! She has loads of homework everyday but I still try and take time to take her to go relax and watch the sun go down or just take it easy for a while! The dog misses Torrie so much during the day! I think she may be a little depressed! We may need a doggie shrink:)

A girl and her dog are never parted!
Working on her homework load. Not in the most comfortable position I might add.
She is playing the Violin this year. She is actually very good. She gets her music ability from her daddy!
In a quiet moment

My little girl is growing up.

After the Storm

We made it thru our first tropical storm, Hanna. We only had a few limbs from the big pine tree down in our yard. The day after the storm we went for a stroll on the beach while Ronnie surfed. It was a beautiful afternoon.

The calm after the storm.

On the pier in Kitty Hawk

The sky was so gorgeous.
Maya had a blast chasing little crabs around on the sand.
Maya loves her sister!

Waiting for the waves to come in and wash over her little feet.
What a ham!!
How cute are they!
Gods Wonder!

The End of Summer~

Torrie heads off to middle school. Ronnie heads off to work. Me and Maya are left to fill our days with a little of this and a little of that! It has been different not having Torrie here with us during the day. She gets on the bus at 7:30 and does not get home until 4:45. This is a huge change from last year when she would get home at 2:30 and we could still hang out for a while. Now it is homework and friends that fill what is left of her evening. We still make her eat dinner with us, and occasionally she will watch a little t.v with me before bed. I knew the day would come..but so soon? Just when I think she has totally dissed us for the evening..she will ask one of us to snuggle with her as she falls asleep and then she goes back to being my little baby again. I love both my girls madly!!
