I should update the blog as soon as we go to these neat places because I quickly forget the great details that we learn. Sorry... This is the USS Alabama. It was an hour drive from where we live so we decided to cross the border and go check it out. It was really neat to be in a battle ship and the submarine. I just can't believe how tight and small those ships are. Definitely a sacrifice from the luxuries of home.
The bars kind of ruin the picture, but this was the bakery. That was one of the biggest kneading machines I had ever seen. It was pretty cool.
Men and their guns.

My good friend, Jackie (in the orange sweater), drove down to Atlantic City from NYC and she watched the children while we went to the wedding. Afterwards, we went to the bride and groom suite to talk and catch up. We stayed up until 4:00 am!!! Never again... but it was worth it.

Joey is 3 now. He turned the big 3 in August. I started Joy School with him this fall. It is a value based learning system that moms can do at home to teach their children how to learn and still have joy. Its been great. Its just me and him so some things he has a hard time with just doing us two because honestly, he looks at me like I'm crazy because I do these silly songs with him and he almost acts like hes too cool to do it. But he loosens up and joins me. He did great at drawing a stick figure to learn about the body and loves to change the date and weather on his calendar.
One of the things we loved to do this summer was just walk on the beach and fly kites. Kevin had more fun flying the Buzz Lightyear kite than Joey did. It was really cute. The beaches here are so beautiful and clean and warm. Joey loved it.. Emma not so much
We went to this restaurant in Alabama- just an hour away- and it was great. It was your typical home country cooking, but it was a lot food with a lot of fun. They throw you rolls at the restaurant from across the room. Kevin caught his second one and Joey was so impressed. We also hit some milestones this summer. Emma can crawl now as you can see her hiding under the bed. She is so fast and loves to follow me around the house. And Joey is potty trained. He has random accidents if I am not on top of my game, but overall he does really good. Every time he goes, he says he has to go "Like Daddy."
