When I was home I had a chance to see two gals that I coached as cheerleaders, way back in the day. (I could no way do a jump split to save my life anymore HA HA) These two girls have kept in touch with me over the years and what a treat that has been to see them grow up from the Juniors they were, when I knew them in high school, to the beautiful, cute little wives they are now. Thanks for the luncheon gals. It was great. I miss you tons. You both looked wonderful. See you again soon.

Tyson has been quite a funny kid lately. He got this hat from Grandpa and Grandma Westwood and he has to wear it every time we go out the door. He runs to where it is hanging up and says, "HHath." And if you don't get it, he jumps around until he gets his way. Spoiled rotten...LOL
He has also had quite a fetish with his mom and dad's shoes. He loves to put them on and parade around the apartment, or he will bring them to us and put them on our feet.
Another funny thing is his love for his pajama's at night. Before going home this last time, he always slept in a diaper with a onesie. Now, that we have actual pajamas, we have and I mean have to wear them at night. He loves the NEMO ones the best. Those are the ones you see him sporting in the picture above. He is just growing up into a little boy. CUTE KID!!!!

I have been a part of the Spouses Organization, SO, for about 1 year now. It is a great organization that helps spouses and families get regrouped and ready to transition to the island life of St. Maarten. We had our annual Welcome Breakfast where we meet the newbies and reconnect with the old gals here on the island. I love the breakfast and this time it was even better, I didn't have to organize it. I love being a participant instead of the "in charge person." The new Council: Ashley, Jill and Candace are doing a great job. This Organization has saved me on this island and I would hate to think how life would be here without it. GO S.O.!

Yep! We actually sat through, almost, an entire movie. Laura, Ashley, myself and the crew of boys went to the matinee of "Shrek Three". It was hysterical. The theater here on the island, has got to be one of the nicest theaters I have ever been to. It surpasses anything they have where I am from. The seats are HUGE and they lean back. AHH!!!!! Plus they have booster seats for the little 'uns to sit on so they can watch the movie like the BIG kids.
It was a bit hectic getting settled in, but once we bought the popcorn and small drinks, Tyson was in heaven. He sat there very still and watched the movie. There were a few moments where he almost made a break for it and ran down the isle stairs, but mom persuaded him to stay with her secret weapon, CANDY. (I don't like him to have a lot of candy but to make him sit there, it was worth it) It was such a good experience that I cannot wait to take him to another matinee, provided it is a cartoon that is fast paced and with big characters.

Here he is, pushing his Fisher Price Bubble Lawn Mower. He wore that thing out. Notice the jacket, long pants and beanie? Ya, the weather was wonderful back home, unlike the island.
Since it is so blooming HOT here, Tyson and I have been sweating up a storm. We even open the door and "WHOOSH," we are smacked in the face with the humidity. A far cry from the nice 60 degree weather of Circleville. It is the HOT season here and so we will spend more time at the beach and pools to cool our heated bodies.
Here is a cute picture of the little tyke and myself. This is taken at the Circleville Elementary School playground. He loved to sit on the dinosaurs and play. The layers of clothing look warm to those of us here on the island, but at home, they felt good.
There wasn't a day that we didn't walk across the lawn from our house to the playground. If Tyson couldn't get me to go then he went to Grandpa Westwood, who is a big pushover, to take him. They would go for about an hour and dad would come back wheezing from running around with Tyson. Notice on the far left of the picture the shaggy dog, that is Shep, the family dog who ate quite well when we were home because Tyson found the dog food and fed him a little too regularly. Let's just say Shep is a few pounds heavier and now waits to be fed every hour. Sorry about that mom and dad. LOL

I think he was just happy to be off the airplanes and out of car seats. He was ready to run and he didn't quit.
