July Happenings ~~

Oops, I guess I took a little unintentional blogging break there.  I haven't posted anything since mid-June!  And wow, it's the end of July already?!   In a few weeks this long summer is over and it's back to school....  As long as we don't regress back to Phase 1 (which looks highly possible), school is a go for us.  We have the option to do virtual, but nah...    If we are in Phase 2 as we are now, it will be two weeks of virtual, then a hybrid schedule alternating days in class and at home.  My girls will be in "A" group: Monday, Wednesday, and every other Friday in class.   ALL extracurricular activities clubs, sports, etc. are cancelled.  No marching band.... no choir festivals....  nothing. If we ever go to phase 3 it will be regular 5 days a week school, or as regular as it can get these days.

BIG NEWS:  Clint finished the online realtor's class!!  He then traveled to Baton Rouge and took the state exam July 2 and PASSED!  My husband is now a licensed realtor in the State of Louisiana!!!  It's a slow process to get going, but he joined the team of a local real estate office.  Look at him all fancy and professional in this flyer for an open house:



Other  NEWS:  Since marching band has been cancelled for the year and there's no band camp this summer, Valerie decided to get Driver's Ed over with.  She passed the written test with a 97%!  She was very nervous about driving portion, but she seemed to do just fine with it.  She passed the driving part with an 86% and now has a learner's permit!  She has yet to do any driving (I think she is still scared) but we have plenty of time to work on it.  I'm hoping by next spring she'll be license ready.



Veronica got to attend a week long "Broadway Boot Camp" that the local theater put on.  She is nuts about musicals at the moment and it is ALL she talks about.  She had a fabulous time and I really hope she gets a chance to audition for an actual role whenever things get back to normal.  I think it would help bring her out of her shell.


Here she is as Olaf in a short scene from Frozen: 





I will leave y'all with a HILARIOUS video of my kiddos.  Disney World is back open, and the wait times are practically nothing.  Valerie is a die hard Disney fanatic and every day she gives me updated wait times and shows me pictures of just how empty it is.  We were toying with the idea of going for a few days.  Airfare is so cheap!  The condos we stay at are 1/3 of what they usually run.  So tempting! The girls came marching in the living room decked out in Disney gear and presented us this Power Point to persuade us we should go...    It's a little long and I wasn't prepared to video at all but they really put a lot of planning into putting this together.  



I will get around to visiting you all and catch up very soon!!
