Well, we finally did it. We made up our minds and put the Florida house on the market. I know the market is bad and the prices are so much lower than we had hoped but sometimes you just have to go with the flow. Hopefully we will be able to sell it and finally make the move to Alabama near our grandchildren. Our little house is just sitting there waiting for us with rooms to be painted and a yard to be planted. I can't wait!! The actual packing and moving is going to be a chore after living here for 26 years but once we get a buyer it will be Yard Sale time. Because our house in Alabama is already pretty much furnished we won't be taking all of our furniture, just a few select pieces. I have been bringing boxes of treasures there each trip we have made in the past so I will probably have to have a yard sale once we settle in Alabama also because the house there is much smaller.

My nephew, Anthony has graduated from high school. He is my younger sister's oldest child. Boy, where does the time go, it seems he was just a little boy that my girls were teaching to talk, not all that long ago. Now, Anthony is heading to college to pursue a degree in teaching. He actually wants to be a music teacher. Ever since I could remember he has loved all kinds of music. His preferences are unusual for an eighteen year old boy in 2011 because he just loves Frank Sinatra, jazz and swing music.

|Jesse and his friends Savon and Randy|
Jesse was voted the school chaplain this year and his daily responsibility was to say the 'Pledge of Allegiance' every morning and at special functions. We were able to visit Alabama and be present for his graduation from 5th grade. Here he is leading everyone in the pledge of allegiance at the moving up ceremony.
