according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or

About Me

Sunny Florida, United States
I am the proud mom to 6 kids: Natasha, 24, Nikolai, 20, Reese, 20, Maylee, 14, Erik, 10 and Violet, 7. The kids come from Russia, Ukraine and China; I'm so proud of my family sometimes I think I'll burst and I needed an outlet for it - so I've created this weblog. :o)
If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.

One week after Nikolai and I went up, Reese and I went up! And THIS time, the guy's camera worked!! LOL We had a blast, and though initially Reese said parasailing wasn't his "thing", he admitted that he enjoyed it a lot! The day was beautiful (the blue sky doesn't project at all in this picture, unfortunately)!! It was around 73 degrees, soft clouds in the sky, and no humidity at all. PERFECT!! I love having kids that are fun to play with. :o)

Here we are, WAY up in the sky!! We had an 800 ft. line. You can see Cape Canaveral in the background. The Space Shuttle is on the launchpad off to the right prepping for Wednesday's launch - too far to see in this picture, though. We saw multiple dolphins swimming around our boat, and Reese saw a stingray!! No fair - I missed it!! Maybe next time... ;op



We were coming in for a landing when this photo and the next were taken. Reese is as cute as ever. ;o) (He did complain, though: "I look so young in this picture!" He's trying so hard to grow up!)

For my mother's benefit I added this one in here. I'm mostly hidden, so I don't mind. lol I had a good time, of course! I always love doing fun things, especially with my kids. I'm so glad they are good sports! :o)

If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day, go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.
