Welcome Miss Arnold's fourth grade class!! I am so pleased that you all are going to be traveling with Grams, Nancy Karen and Kelly! This is going to be a fun trip and I am so glad you kids get to go along with us.
Even if it is just by pictures!! Karen and Kelly will be down loading picture when ever possible so you can follow us on your map that Miss Arnold has made for you on your desk. I hope each one you have a good time doing this and learn a little more about our great country!
One of the places will be the beautiful white beach!!

wheel chair accessible beaches in panama city florida
Seems like we've been waiting on this trip forever.. and now there just isn't enough time to get everything done. We did get all the medicine in for Nancy, so that's great! Karen say's that she is really "slammed" at work... everyone is piling up all the work that she won't be there to do the next week. oh.. well.. I told her it would be worth it!!
Think calm, "vacation-ie" thoughts....

I Stole this fair and sqaure from Kelly's myspace blog. This really got me excited about the vacation!
Okay, I digress. We are all very excited. I think Nancy is more enamored with seeing Graceland, than with the beach. It's a toss up with Mom. She has never been to the beach, but she hasn't been to the Smokies either. Karen, has been dreaming of the beach for years and I'm really excited about all the photo opportunities. I'm sure I'll post them on myspace. Just a few more days and the adventure begins!

Here is Tuesday morning already!! I am still working on my medicine and Nancy's!! Thinking of what we need to take and what we don't need!! I always take to much. But you know how that goes!!
Not only did Karen make this blog for me she came home one evening with two sacks of new clothes for me !! I didn't have any beach stuff at all. She got me some really snazzy looking outfits to wear, and I said " Karen, I can't wear these to the beach they would get all wet"!!
She said, "Mom this is what they are for"! For you to enjoy yourself down there"! I said," But they are to nice to wear to beach"! She said" MOM"!! I said "Oh"" Oh, Okay" So watch for pictures of Grams in her new beach wear!!
Karen and Kelly will be taking a lot of pictures and I know they will down load them on this site!!

Thinking today about what we need to do! Get medicine for Nancy and me refilled.
I have called the oxygen place and they will have the concentrator ready a couple of days before we leave. I am still Praising God that the place where we get Nancy's oxygen has a small portable concentrator we can use at no cost!!
We have have a small oxygen tanks that she uses if she needs them in the daytime. The concentrator will be for the nighttime. This is when she needs the concentrator to make oxygen.
Like I said yesterday this could be hard if we let it be, but I am going try to be up beat and get all my ducks in row before we leave and then we will end up having such a good time!!

Here is a current picture of Dean... the hurricane on track to make landfall in Mexico by Wednesday. We are praying that it lessens in strength, stays inland and dissipates!
'"Dean Preparing to Make Landfall on Jamaica
August 19, 2007 - 12:58 PM UTC (subtract 4 hours for EDT)
Update 8:00pm EDT: Dean is still being maintained with maximum winds of 145 mph but his pressure is still creeping up and now at 930 mb. This weakening is likely indicative of his double eyewall structure and the influence of land as he grazes Jamaica. Dean is still expected to strengthen when he moves away from the island and is likely to reach Category 5 intensity at some point in the next two days. While Dean looks slightly less intense than before, he still is exhibiting amazing symmetry and is a powerful storm. Considering his proximity to land, I am surprised Dean has held up so well." -the stormtrack.com
Felix & Gabrielle --- are the next names to be used-- but so far so good.... it appears that they are in hiding, as I can't find any information on them... and that's a GOOD thing!!

She thought it would be fun to make a journal of our travels for Carrie my Missionary daughter in Guadalajara Mex. She will be able to follow our travels and see where we are every day or so........ and the rest of the family, and my friends and of course my blogging friends ,too!!
I am starting to really get excited about this trip!! Since I hurt myself I have not been able to travel much but we were able to go to Branson a few times and I love going down there!!
