1st Day of School

Today was the girl's first day of school at Cimino Elementary. They were excited, but also nervous about what the day would bring.

Sierra just got her spacers put in at the dentist yhe day before, and had difficulty talking, while Audrey was just worried about not having any friends yet!

We dropped them off at 7:45 with hope that the day gives them happiness, new friends and the love for school.

Happy Birthday Victor!

This morning, the girls woke up early to wrap their daddy's birthday presents and to create magnificent cards! All it took was a whisper in their sleeping ears and the popped out of bed ready to start the day (I wish school days were this easy)!

Audrey added the special touches of orange icing to the top and sides of the cake to personalize it for daddy!

We opened cards and presents, then had a wonderfully delicious southern breakfast to start our day!

Gigi won the prize for most creative gift. She found an 80's glamour shot photo of me with big hair, earrings and a sparkly outfit to give to Victor! He loved it!

Our sprouts are growing...

Its almost time to transplant our sprouts into the Tower Garden! Harvesting fresh veggies are only weeks away!

Visiting Sarasota

After a night with friemds, we ventured out to St. Armond's circle. We walked around looking at shops and art, had lunch at Tommy Bahamas, then walked to Lido Beach for a dip in the ocean. The water was warm, and the undercurrent was extremely strong so we swam close to shore and searched for sea shells.

Audrey found sand crabs and periwinkles. She giggled with her sister about finding Perry, the perrywinkle, for hours! Sierra loved practicing her duck dives and back flips in the water. It was thr perfect day!

On our way home a rainbow greeted us at our exit!

Visiting a Dear Friend

On Friday, we drove to Sarasota to see a dear friend I hadn't seen in 12 years - Julie Milton. She was as beautiful, and as generous as i had always known her to be. We talked about all the experiences that had passed between us, right where we left off years ago. I was happy to introduce her to the girls. The girls met her puppy, Missy, and fell in love with her! We had dinner with her and her husband Ron's restaurant, Cafe L'Europe. Everything was delicious and the company was wonderful!

We Have Sprouts!

We are starting our Tower Garden again. To prepare, we planted 32 different seeds and after 4 days, we have sprouts! Some of the things we planted include: gourmet lettuce, arugula, spinach, chive, basil, cucumbers, artichoke, cherry & beefsteak tomatoes, sugarsnap peas, and bell & chili peppers.

In a couple weeks we will transfer the spriuted seedlings to the vertical garden to watch them grow and eventually bear fruit!
