There's No Place Like Home!

Well, we're back home & finally getting back into somewhat of a routine again! As y'all know it's nice to visit, but even better to get back home!!! I don't know whose happier we're home, the girls, Pete, or Boscoe!!! LOL
The girls will be starting "Bridges," on July 16th. It is a program offered through the school district to help them with the transistion from being home to going to school. The girls are really looking forward to starting school again & making new friends. They will however be in different classes, but I've explained to them that they will still be able to have recesses & lunch together. So we'll see.....let's keep our fingers crossed that it will work!
Big Daddy is doing well, other than getting tired a little more easily than usual.....but the healing process takes time. He is however HAPPY to be back at work & doing something with his days! It's nice to know that he LOVES his job & actually MISSED working....otherwise there might be a problem!
As for me....I'm hanging in there! Still trying to adjust back from the time change & getting back to my "normal" routine. I did however manage to lose more weight while I was gone, which is SURPRISING!!! So I have now lost a total of (drumroll) 35 lbs. WOOHOO!!! I of course still have a long ways to go, but at least it's a start!!!
Once I get the pictures downloaded from our trip, I will be sure to share them with all of you, so y'all can see for yourself what I was talking about in earlier posts.
