Rain Rain Go AWAY!

I lived in England for 4 years and it never rained this much in such a short period of time........everything is flooded- my oldest and youngest had ONE day of school and my new Kindergartner has not gone at all yet........this is day three of stranded home because of Fay- she's mean she's persistent and she does not like Brevard County........but truly, we are fortunate compared to some. Our street is not flooded (I swear one of the few in this county) we have not lost power (and many have)........but ohhhhhh how I hope the schools are open tomorrow! Pictures of the first day of school to come later.....

off to the beach*!

"Hi, you've reached the R**** residence. They can not come to the phone right now because they are too busy having fun at the beach for the next 4 days. Please leave a message and they'll get back to you once they've returned and removed all of the sand from their belongings!...BEEEEEEEEP"
the kids start school on Monday- so we are turning off the phones, shutting down the internet and heading to the beach for one last breath of summer..........between school, soccer and the kids' social schedules there isn't much time during the school year to just kick up our feet and enjoy being a family together without distractions.........

*yeah I know we live 10 minutes from the ocean.......but this way I don't have to cook or make beds!
