So long fair well...

Well the time has Come. Tomarrow I leave for kentucky. I am still realing over how fast this summer went by, and the whole 'I'm going back to school' this is still a little sureal. it seams weird that I am about to embark on a new adventure. The next time I will be updating this i will be in kentucky, weird.

Oh where is my summer?

So it is the end of August. Okay maybe not quiet but because I leave for Kentucky in less then a week it feels like it is the end. and I am sitting here trying to figure out where my summer went. Mostly because I did not get any of my goals for this summer accomplished. I didn't get my text books read. (I still have 6 left of the 16 I purchased at the beginning of the summer.) I didn't finish writing the cures of the sea (still have 2 to 3 more chapters to go.) Nor have i finished my story from last years NoNaWriMo. I wanted to work on my drawing and painting and i never got to that. I had planed to go to the Y 5 days a week, that ended after VBS. I had planed to get some work done on my car, that didn't happen either. (not that it was crucial work, just get rid of the broken bumper that is hidden by the car's bra.)

So I sit now at the end of my summer trying to figure out what happened to it. Well I did get 10 of my books read. I worked at VBS. I went to Florida. I moved home. I got back on a regular schedule with The Curse of the Sea. I went up the mountains to see my cousin. And spent time with my family. I went to a wedding. I went to family camp. I went to a 50th wedding anniversary. And I am going to see a friend in Douglas today. So my summer definitely wasn't a waist, but it did seem to go by fast.

Vacation recap

well I have almost been home a week so it is about time that shared what went down during this break.

A few years back my patents decided to buy a timeshare. and this year we got to use it. We went to Florida. for most my family it was their first time, my mother and I had been there once before with Choral. Our condo was in Orlando near Sea World.

the first couple of days we did little but hang out at the resort relaxing. it had several pools, and stuff. I have an uncle who lives in Ft. Meyers so he came down with his family and hung out with us. we did a couple of beach days. one at the beach in Cape Coral, one at Fort Meyers at sun set (officially my favorite time to be at the beach), and we got a boat and explored the inlets on the golf side (were we saw dolphins).

one day we went out on one of those air boats and saw alligators. that was fun, Nikki got a good picture of one. my pictures aren't developed yet so i don't know if i have any good ones.

we did a little sight seeing: universal city walk, and Ripley's believe it or not museum. Ripley's was fun, Saw lots of crazy stuff.

the last day was our big day at the theme park. we went to sea world and rode some roller coasters. we also spent some time at Aquatica in the water slides. then we went back to sea world to see Shamu's encore show. all music lights and whales jumping all over the place. it was the perfect end to the vacation.

all in all we had a good time, no one got attacked by a shark, or alligator. no one had any permanent Sun damage. the only thing is that me and my sisters all came back sick. but other then that it was a great time.
