Has it really been that long since I posted last?  WOW how time flies!
We have been doing great here in Raleigh.  The girls are thriving at their new school and have learned far more than I could have imagined.  Ashely is taking a jazz class and loves it.  I have never seen her smile so big.  Her recital is in June and she will be taking jazz and tap this summer.  Emilee will be attending 2 basketball camps, one at school and one at UNC in Chapel Hill. 
Our family is in the process of buying a home here and the kids are so excited to have bigger rooms to decorate.  We will miss our neighbors that we have grown to love and appreciate.  They have helped us to transition here with a happy heart.  Good thing they are only going to be a few minutes away.

We took a trip to Williamsburg this past Easter Break and learned a lot about the colonial days. It fit right in with Ashley's history lessons. Here are some of the Highlights.

Thanksgiving at the Beach

We spent Thanksgiving in Ft. Meyers Beach, Florida with my mom, Pappy Mike and two family friends.
We had a great time relaxing, shell searching and eating.

The girls kayaked for the first time , proud of them. I did it too (sorry no photos to prove it).

We found some crabs!
