Super Bee

Scotlyn was one of 2 children in her class chosen for the school's Writer's Night. She had to write and illustrate a story and then read it to her peers and their parents. She did an awesome job! Her story was about a bumble bee superhero! Love that girl!

She Drove All Night

We went to the Celine Dion concert back in January. I had a great time! I definitely think she's better in person although I still probably wouldn't buy her CD's. She has a great sense of humor, though, and it was fun to hear her talk about stuff.

Bryn Update

Bryn and Jared went on a daddy-daughter date the other night to see Riverdance (Irish dancing). They had a great time although they weren't allowed to take pictures in the TPAC (Tennessee Performing Arts Center). Bryn loved it and she got her program autographed by a Russian dancer that also performed there.

The next day, Bryn sang the national anthem at a senior citizens center for Girl Scouts--hope she earned a badge for that. I'm proud of you, Bryn!

Attention Deficit Disorder

Dear Blog,

I guess I've been on a blogging hiatus. Apparently, this is not too different than when I was a kid. Back then, I would write in my diary regularly and then a flashy something like Atari or making friendship bracelets would lure me in and I guess I couldn't find time to do both. I'd forget about my dear friend, the diary, for months at a time. Eventually, when I wanted to vent or rave about my life, I'd dig it up again and write to my heart's content. . .always signing "Sincerely yours, Sandra D."

Facebook has been my recent little sparkly thing that's veered me away from you at this time in my life. As I'm slowing rehabilitating myself from my Facebook addiction, I am remembering the fun I used to have with you. The pictures, the comments, the pride in the girls' faces when they got to read about what I'm sharing about them. I missed you, blog, and I'm back.

Sincerly yours,
Sandra D. Turner
