Chocolate for breakfast!

The kids love me to take pictures of them. Yes we did have dark chocolate curls sprinkled on our fresh whipped cream and rasberries waffles. Yummy, Yum. And tea of course.

My spell check is not working and I can't copy what I wrote so if it's spelled wrong tuff titties. I suck at spelling too.

Third first day of school

Audric has now had three first days of kindergarten. He started kindergarten a year early last year at First Impression Academy Fayetteville, NC, then we moved and he started mid year in kindergarten at Manzano Day school in Albuquerque, NM and now he started at Fordham primary school, England year one, which is the same as kindergarten. He was nervous but fine by the time I left him. Julie was upset, she wanted to go with him. He has to wear a uniform to school it's very cute. He says he had a good day and can't wait to go tomorrow.

He almost had four first days because on the Wednesday before he started I hadn't heard anything from the local school and the one day of home schooling told me it wasn't going to work until Xmas when I thought he would be able to get in. So I decided to put him in at the American school in Feltwell. We did the tour, signed all the paper work, and was going to have him go the next day. That is until I got home and found an email from the Fordham school saying he got in. I felt so bad wasting the other school's time doing all that paper work. They understood being military themselves. Funny how thing just work out some times.


I'm not checking out my bum. I'm making sure my kids aren't going to get their heads hit with the ball. Twice the ran into someone else's lane.

Two Strikes for Audric

The kids also won three ticket for free bowling. Audric got two strikes with bumpers but no ramp. I suck at bowling. No matter how hard I try, in fact I'm worse when I try. We had fun.

Warwick Castle

Audric and Julianna won tickets to Castle Warwick from the summer reading program here on the base for the most hours read. I must say living in a hotel for a month or more and spending half our summer days in the library had nothing to do with the win.

We had a blast. This was our first castle visit since moving here. Of course this one is almost like a theme park with it's shows and displays, but I liked it. The kids got freaked out by the wax figures they had. It showed how life would be living in the castle. I would rather be a servant then an owner in this place. I'm sure we will be going to it again once people come to visit.

We went to McDonald's on our way home. I told the kids they don't have them when we got to England so they thought it was a restaurant that just looked like it. In fact it never did say McDonald's anywhere except in small print inside a bag. The best part was they gave the kids balloons and had real flowers as decor. I liked that I could get a spicy vegi burger, yum.

Spouse Flight on MC-130

I had knots in my hair after this

Which way is up?

Julianna sat so still the whole time. The lady did an extra good job on her because of it. Of course she wanted it off not long after the picture was taken.

I was very lucky and got to flight on the MC-130 250 ft off the ground (water) with the back door open. How cool is that. I was doing great the whole time until I went up to the front where my stomach tighten up. I spend the rest of the time in the back with my eyes closed hoping my friend next to me didn't throw up because I knew I wouldn't be able to hold it back then and I didn't have a barf bag with me.
