Summer - L'ete est la...

I can't believe school's been over for two weeks. The school year sure went by fast! Both girls had an excellent year. Margaux ended her first year of preschool (pre-k2) and is spending her summer with our sitter, who took care of her last year while she was in-between daycare and preschool. I was planning on leaving her at the preschool for their summer program, but they turned out to be very expensive. This bossy little lady is now busy trying to rule over a new bunch of little boys.

Sophie had a great first year at her new school (Richland elemenentary for 2nd grade) and got all the highest honors in addition to receiving a special recognition for her exemplary behavior. To reward her, she's going to a special camp this week at a farm in Collierville. She's loving it, they have horses, bunnies, a swimming pool, moon-bounce etc. I wish I could afford to send her for more than one week... :( The other weeks, she'll be going to the Y camp or Central Camp (church really close to my work).

At the end of the week, we'll be heading to the beach for a cheap vacation. We decided (sadly) that we could not afford to attend our China travel group reunion and are just driving to Destin instead. We are hoping that the economy will start recovering soon and that things will be looking up by this time next year. We are way overdue for a trip to France, too. Thankfully, both of us still have our jobs, so we count our blessings.

Hope everyone is having a fun-filled summer. I will be posting pictures soon, including tons from the beach!
