I'm Back!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, Yes, you all missed me I know... Lol

So, it has been forever since I have written a blog, so I will try to cover everything.  The reason I haven't written in a while is because I have to write a blog for school, cheerleading just got over, FCCLA, Academic team, and every other activity...

The Comets finished out our basketball season at a district game versus the Crane Pirates. They are our biggest rivals, and we lost by 1 point.  I am supper proud of our boys for the amazing season we had. 
My blog for school is in Reading, we do Book Talks, but that blog is closed. 
In Academic Team, for the most part our competitions are over, and we came in 3rd in our conference meet. 
In FCCLA; Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America, our sponsor wants me to run for office next year, which takes up a lot of time to prepare.  We have our State Conference in April, and she wants me to go.. I have to save money.... yay!!

Um, I think that is the gist of the last month or so....

We are all doing great up here, but it has been so cold!!!!! Freezing! Earlier today we have sleet, at 3:30 in the afternoon. Not cool.  Last week we only had 2 days of school due to snow days.

For all you who don't know, My mom and her boyfriend got engaged over the weekend! I am so happy for them!

Ok, I am done typing for a little bit.

Celebrate Life, don't forget, even if you are amazingly busy!

Now I can't find the way to edit my blog from the other day.....

Noble Assistant where are you...............? LOL

that was at the St Augustine History Museum. the ORIGINAL camper.

Here is where we sat to eat dinner the other day..........

and here is the view from our table. Missed the sailboat that went by....
this is Viola when she was ready to hit her drive on # 9

and check out where she is looking....... long and high was her shot, even out drove me.....

she hit that little white ball about 150 yards.

  of course my tee was 150 yards further back than hers, but we had fun.

So later all and enjoy the pics. Tom and Viola

What we've been up to

AS SOON AS I FIND WHERE I FILED THE PHOTOS ON THIS COMPUTER I'LL POST THEM HERE. So that beautiful bride of mine and I have been running all around northeast Florida enjoying the time we spend together.

So first, a couple weekends ago we actually played tourist and visited the tourists traps in the nation's oldest city.
At one stop was the St. Augustine History Museum.  Took this picture of Viola next to America's original camper.... we joked about traveling around the west in it......... talks good, but doesn't listen so well........

Anyway later on a different weekend we took a road trip..... yes we burned up more fossil fuels just driving around.  Oh well, we enjoyed our time together as always.
So on way home we were getting hungry, so we took a chance and stopped at a cafe besides the highway and along the St. John's river.  Here are a couple pictures of where we were sitting for dinner.  Perfect view of the river.

Then today that bride of mine made we very humble... here we are at the golf course and a couple pics of her on the tee box.  By the way, she out drove me on this, the ninth hole.  Of course, I was playing the blue tees, while Viola was playing the reds. 
I went over and took her picture and missed this excellent drive.  Right in the range of 150 yards. 
Even more humbling was the fact that she beat me on the front nine, I had a 46 and she came in with a 45. 
Of course I venture to say the new golf clubs we had custom made for her had a lot to do with it.  And the hour and a half lesson from a local pro seemed to really boost her confidence.

So I keep trying at the game: As my DAD once said:   a great walk throught the pastures and woods, spoiled by a little white ball. 

So that's what we've been doing.  What's been your excuse for not writing......
