Charting our own course...

In days of old, sailors would keep a journal while at sea to chronicle their lives as they travelled the world in search of adventure... and perhaps an ounce or two of treasure. In this spirit, our family has also set its own course. My husband's career as a naval aviator keeps us travelling to distant shores... adventures await with every new 'port 'o call' we visit! Because of our nomadic lifestyle we have also embarked upon the adventure of homeschooling our twin boys, age 6 (aka: The Crew). The Crew started their 2nd grade work on 06 Aug 2012. I hope you'll enjoy our story as we chart our own course thru life and set sail on new adventures... gathering our stories and treasure along the way.

Fair Winds and Following Seas my friends!

Spring Fever!

Today was a fantastic (but breezy) 60 degrees! The Crew and I have been outside all day taking advantage and daydreaming of when spring arrives for good! The whole neighborhood got in on the act and I was going to have some video for all of you to see... Until I realized the battery was dead and the memory card was full.... (hmm, what was that I said about good intentions?) So here is a quick sum-up to give you a mental video of how the day went down:

Bubble wands, sidewalk chalk, bikes, buggies and trikes scattered to the far corners of the neighborhood, soccer balls, golf clubs, tennis rackets and buckets of dirt (minus the prized worm found) with shovels hidden among the bushes and trees of the yard. Trampolines, forts, slides and a swarm of children age 2 to 5 running from yard to yard in blatant ownership of the 'burb. Dirty faces to wipe with hands to wash, and a pizza in the oven to feed two very hungry, windblown, and worn out boys for dinner... basically the perfect Spring preview! Mother Nature can be a cruel Lady however.... tomorrow's forecast?

44 and rainy.
No video planned.

Changes in Latitudes...

Well, you may have noticed a slight change to the "Harbour"... Welcome friends and loved ones to my new digs! When I first set up camp at my previous website, I had very little idea about how blogs worked or what I wanted in the way of "atmosphere"... after a few posts, it quickly became evident that it was just not quite what I had originally intended for my little piece of cyberspace, and so the winds of change blew and I decided to pull anchor and set sail for new horizons! I have all sorts of plans in store for this new locale and I hope you will come by often to roll your pants up, dig your toes in the sand, and spend some time hanging out with me and my beloved family (whom I've decided to refer to as "the crew" for various reasons such as maintaining privacy, past run-ins with the law, and a few other shady dealings I won't go into now...)

I hope to connect on at least a weekly basis with all of you and hope you will keep your eyes towards the horizon and a sharp eye out for the latest bottle to wash ashore... but as we all know, in paradise there are no clocks... and plenty of good intentions! If it's been awhile, then my advice to you is to mix another drink and relax... and really, isn't that the best advice of all??

Fair Winds....
