Jenn's Coming

Jenn came home from the island this week and I get to see her today.

I got a phone call from Kim today. That was the first time I had talked to her since she left. She had called to tell beepa that she parked under a tree. Which is a good laugh and a half because those florida trees dont give much shade.

Everybody has seemed to get here early today. Josh got here at 1, Gram, Robin and the kids got here at 2ish, Josh says steph, Chris,and Jenn should be here in about an hour which will be around 4 or 4 30. Judy and the Silvas just arrived as well. Its nice to see their faces. and of course my mom left early from work to get here sooner.....and ive missed her so it will be nice to see her as well.

I saw a smile on Robins face a few times today and it had been a long time sence i had seen a smile on her beautiful face. It gave me that warm fuzzy feeling....

Im so excited today! Beepa is taking me up to camp with him. It will be just the two of us until Gram, Robin, Luke, and Alyssa get there. And then the rest of the crew.

I have to admit though, Im having mixed feelings about going to the fair. I met my uncle joe when I was only 3. Ever since I could remember Joe was going to the fair with us too. And this will be the first time we will be going without him. However, I have to look on the bright side of things too. Ill be going with my family, and thats an awesome gift. I wish Kim, Bob, and Jesse could come because I know they havent been to the fair in a veary long time, but also because we all miss them.

Today, I am thankful for this beautiful sunny day, I am thankful to be going up to camp today, and I am thankful for my family.

I am fortunate

Today I started to think about how fortunate I am. I have one of the strongest families anyone could ask for. I dont think I could have made it through that day when I found out my uncle joe had died if my mom hadnt been there for me to cry on her shoulder and scream.

Im so thankful for my mom. She is my hero. She has been so strong for me through everything. Shes someone I can talk to. Especially when I need to talk about how angry or upset I am about things. She always has something to tell me to help me through it. She usually tells me that its okay to feel the way I feel about things.

Shes so strong for me...she made it through the situation with Duane and I dont think I would have made it through if she wasnt here for me. When she was out of work we made a bond that we never had before. Now that shes back to work I miss her a lot. We have less time to talk but i still deffinately know I can talk to her if I have too. And if we had to go through what we went through for us to have the relationship that we have now than so be it because I love it!

Im also grateful for my grandparents. I dont think that I had ever said this before but, Thank You. My grandparents gave me a roof over my head when things were rough for my mom and I. They also gave us all a beautiful place to stay on the lake when ever we want. I know, thats weird for me to say considering I barely go up to camp. However, grammy and beepa put a lot of hard work into that camp to make it the way it is and its absolutly amazing.

There are so many good things I could say about everybody in my family but for now I am tired and id like to go to bed...I LOVE YOU ALL!!!
