April, already?!

Where the heck does the time go? I keep thinking I'm just a couple of days out of this blogging thing & then I realize it's been 16 days! WTH?! I'm going to attempt to blog every day in April. Really. That's not an April Fool's joke. I seriously gotta jump back on the bloggy-wagon.
So, what's up around these here parts?

First of all, the banquet was a huge success! Everyone had a great time & the video was a hit!!! I'm so grateful that it's over, but mostly I'm grateful that Jordan had a chance to play with such a wonderful group of girls. Oh! How I love them!!! And Coach!!! Jordan has been blessed to have these people in her life for the past 4 years.

The day after the banquet, Jordan's got an email with a link from FSU. When I clicked on it (she was at school, I had her permisson), I saw this...

Woohoo!!! Although we know she was in, as she qualified to have an "official visit" with the soccer team, it was still good to see something offical from the school!

The month before Megan got accecpted to UF, I hedged my bets that she would get in & spent hours & hours making signs to hang all over the house to celebrate (I think there were hundreds of Gators hanging from our ceiling, but I can't find any of the pictures, darn it!). I was so busy with the banquet that I completely forgot about the FSU acceptance date, so I ran to the mall to buy a banner & then spent about 1/2 hour & made little "ornaments" to hang on a little tree outside our front door. These have since disintegrated with rain, but it was fun while it lasted.

In a couple of weeks, we'll have to replace the banner with one of these...


this girl will be home from Spain in 14 days!!! And I KNOW my Gator Girl won't tolerate a Seminole hanging on the house all by it's lonesome. We've missed Megan so much, but she has had an awesome time & I have to say that the time has flown by, I can't believe it's been 2 1/2 months already. Crazy!!! Here she is during Semana Santa in Gibraltar with one of her new friends. :) She hasn't blogged about this excursion yet, so I hope she doesn't mind me stealing her picture from FB (LOVE YOU MEG!)

We're all excited about her return, especially Jordan. She wants to put their bunk beds back together & have a sleep over every night. We've definitely got some organizing/cleaning to do to make that happen! Isn't that the story of my life?!
See ya tomorrow!

I think you should go with the banner on the right, keep the Gators on top, how it should be :)

Hope everything is going well, I miss you guys!

Megan said...

Agreed. Gators on top!

I think they come so that on one side the Gators are on top & on the other the 'Noles are on top. Looking forward to seeing both of you!
