Busy Couple of Days Coming Up...

Well, the next couple of days are going to be busy around here. Zach will be coming home from Europe tomorrow night. His plane gets in at 11:30 pm!! We then have to leave no later than 7 am on Thursday to drive to North Carolina to visit Hunter at camp!!! We will be in North Carolina until Saturday and then drive back home late on Saturday. I am very excited to learn more about the Wellspring Plan!! We have been trying some of the low fat recipes here at home, and so far, everything has been pretty good. We had Camp Stew for dinner tonight and I actually ate cooked carrots!! I know, I know, that is nothing big, but anyone who knows me, knows that I despise cooked veggies!! It is a texture thing and the memory of my grandmother boiling okra...how gross!!

Hunter will have the option of staying at camp for the night or coming back to the hotel with us. I am nervous about him making food decisions on his own so early in the process. I have been talking with a Wellspring mom and have some ideas if we decide to do breakfast on our own before going back to camp. The diet they follow is basically a low-fat diet. He really wants to make a change so we are behind him one hundred percent!!!

That is all for now. Got to go do something I am sure!!! More later.

June 2011

Where has the time gone!! I can not believe it is already July!!! The good news is that I survived Sommer's high school graduation. I was sad, but so happy for her. My brother Chris drove in from Washington, DC to surprise us for the day!! I had NO idea he was coming. He also brought his new girlfriend, and I really do like her...she fits in with our family so nicely!!! Sommer is all registered to start class at Tallahassee Community College the end of August. I can not believe my daughter is a college freshman!!!

Zach is currently in Ireland on his People to People trip. He left June 18 and he will be back home this coming Wednesday. He has had an amazing time. He traveled to Amsterdam, Belgium, England, Wales, France and Ireland!!! Talk about a trip of a lifetime. Can not wait to hear about his fun.

Hunter is in North Carolina at Wellspring Adventure Camp. I hope he is having a great time and learning new things. We leave on Thursday morning to go for Family Weekend. I am excited about learning all there is to know about the Wellspring Plan. I know he would love to go to the Academy for school, but I just do not know if we can afford to do that. It would be great, but we will have to wait and see. We have made several of the recipes here at home, and plan on making the changes here too. We could all stand to lose a few pounds!! Chuck made Spinach Lasagna the other night and it was fabulous!!

I am getting excited about interning this August. I will FINALLY graduate in December!!! I am so excited and relieved all at the same time!!!

Yesterday was my niece Gracie's 5 th birthday...hard to believe she is already 5. Where does the time go!!!

That is all for now. See ya again soon!!!
