It has been awhile since I have blogged.. so since I was on the site today I decided it was time to catch up a little. Things have been going good here at home.. I am loving my life and the great people I have in it. Extended family has done nothing but try to bring drama into my life but I am just ignoring it because if they want to spread lies to make themselves feel better then that is their prerogative. I won't be a part of it. I have been staying super busy this summer with dance class for Alora and Taekwondo for Tristan.. along with lots of playdates every week. We made some new friends here and it has been great connecting with someone. I was planning a trip to Vegas to see one of my best friends but unfortunately that got changed due to her schedule. Hopefully I will be able to make a trip sometime in the fall but who knows. I am now planning to make a trip to see my two best WA friends and my beautiful Goddaughter in August. I am so looking forward to seeing all my girls again. Guess that means I need to pack my tripod and my camera even though I really don't want to lug it through the airport..lol.. Kris went on a little vacation down to Florida last week for his cousins graduation and will be flying back today. I wish I would have been able to go with him but unfortunately vacations together cannot really happen when you have 4 children to take care of so I stayed behind. Maybe one day we will actually fly somewhere together..lol.. Tristan & Mcleod got into the charter school and we are thrilled! That means they will be getting a much better education than they could at all of the other schools here which makes us very happy. The school system here is very broken and since teachers have tenure no one is willing to do what his necessary to fix it. I say just fire everyone and restaff the entire roster of schools. That should make a serious change for the problem. Your job should be based on performance.. not tenure! Mystry is doing well.. although a bit sad since her boyfriend went off to bootcamp.. I know how hard that is.. communicating only through letters. However, she is keeping fairly busy with school work that she was assigned for the summer from all of her AP classes. She is a wiz at school and is looking at colleges for 2014.. Today I am taking her down to do her test for her driving permit. So I need to get off of here now and do that.. I will try to update again soon.. for now though I am off! Pamela

On Thursday I had the opportunity to do a photo shoot for Sexual Assault Prevention. I feel very honored to have been able to participate in creating awareness for such a great cause. Here are some of the photos from the shoot.
