Before I get caught up on the summer's activities, I will report on this week's events. The kids started classes on Monday. Here they are all ready for the first day of this school year. Julianna is in the 6th, Samuel is in the 4th, and Lydia is in the 2nd grade. Things went well, but the rain begin to fall on Monday as we prepared for the arrival of Tropical Storm Fay. We found out Monday afternnoon that school was cancelled for Tuesday.

It rained all night and most of the day. The wind and rain made it perfect to have a relaxing day at home.

The palm trees blow in the wind.

Our streets were flooded.

What does a kid do when the rain finally stops? This is what Samuel does!!

I have been playing around with my new camera and took this picture of Lydia looking out at the canal.

I got some sewing projects done and now I need to help Doyle make sure that all of his music folders are ready to go tomorrow.

The girls and I were out in the rain for a while too. It didn't take 10 minutes until they were drenched. What a storm!! Love the picture of Lydia.

My two older boys were down the street when we heard the tornado warning on the radio for Hobe Sound. I was glad to see them come running home! I LOVE the picture of your daughter by the canal! Very nice! Did you use a filter?

How high are the canals? Sorry I can't row over anymore.
I wonder if I bought those new uniforms in vain. Surely we will have school this year.

Your kids looked so very cute on the first day of school! Hope that they have a great year! Sounds like ya'll are having some interesting weather... WOW! That last picture was SO cool! Good photography! P.S. It was nice to chat with you at the CFC Reunion! :)

I had to come back and see Lydia's outfit. Actually, it looks so childlike and at least the colors match! Very colorful! I think I may still have some filters and an attachment around here somewhere. I'll see if I can find them and you are welcome to borrow them if you like.
