Well Mo tells you that she is going to keep the blog up now, but I thought I better tie up the loose ends from the last year.
We were very pleased in the first part of the year for my sister and her children to move back to Florida. They are staying in Deltona with Rick's parents and they came first while Rick was waiting for a job transfer. She and the kids spent lots of weekends in Lake Placid visiting and making up for lost time. Oh how I missed her when she was in Texas. Even though she is not in the same town, I know that if need be I could be with her in no time flat now. I love you Suey and I am glad you are back.
Mo took the FCAT at school again; this year it was a math and reading only year. We had to wait until the middle of June to get the results, but she got both 5 on the test, for those who don't know that is a perfect score. We are so proud of her.
To celebrate Mo's FCAT score we took her to Downtown Disney to the movie theater to watch the Twilight movie Eclipse. She was awed to see movie in that awesome theater.
During the summer we were able to play on the lake with Dad's seadoo and had a really enjoyable time.
Mo stated 7th grade this year and is still in the band. On Tuesday of this week she played for the first home football game. The band sounded so good. We went to a high school game last night and we thought the middle school sounded better than the high school. Mo is being allowed to play with the 8th grade students because she is good and she follows directions. Only a few of the 7th graders go to do this, as I understand.
Lastly, we are getting a into the fall season and it's holidays around here. We are looking forward to the family reunion next weekend and then it will quickly be Halloween, Mo's 13th (oh, no) birthday, and then Thanksgiving and Christmas. It seems that once they start they are all so quick to come.
