I did get some ospreys shots though. Something positive.

 

My oldest daughter played soccer when she was young.  Most of the girls on the field preferred watching the birds to watching the ball.  I remember watching one girl stop while playing and wave to her parents on the sideline.  Her father yelled for her to turn around because the ball was behind her and turned his finger in a circle in case she didn't hear him.  She obediently did a 360 degree turn and continued to look at her parents, almost as if to say, "what now?"  I would hope at Owen's age that they'd be beyond that.

So glad for you, C & N,

 

Didn't know it will take you a couple of days to see the new house, no pics were posted, I feared you might be disappointed seeing it "in person"....

 

I remember @bobmacliberty story that they saw a house "not in person", liked it very much, but when they finally arrived in Florida, were disappointed and didn't buy it...

 

 

no, the house is beautiful 🙂

Doctors are one of the bigger problems with moving.  We now need to find a general practitioner, an eye doctor, a dermatologist (which was nearly impossible to do in Cincinnati), and a dentist.  We'll get some recommendations from neighbors but we'll be largely guessing based on online ratings (which must be taken with a grain of salt), who is taking new patients, who accepts our health insurance, and who is reasonably close to where we live.  Fortunately, Micheline got a good recommendation for a new gynecologic oncologist, which will hopefully just be a once a year formality visit.

Gorgeous house Crystal!  Wow.  Glass doors to the garage.  Very cool.  I see one thing though that needs to immediately be changed.  You need a MUCH bigger TV in that large room.  😁

We moved a 75" TV from Cincinnati and had no place to put it, since we already had a 75" TV above the fireplace in our main TV watching room.  So we hung it on the wall of our bedroom.  It looks embarrassingly huge.  I figure that it should look more normal after watching it for a few months.

Not as exciting day today, after the last few days.  Had to hang around home this morning, as the electrician came to swap out the service panel and get ready to run a cutoff switch to be ready for the new spa when it arrives. 

 

Took our grandson for a nature hike this afternoon, and managed to log 11 miles for the day.  

 

We did find a family of new ducks.

A few turtles.

And, a couple dragon flies.  ( for some reason, I really liked this picture)

He did manage to keep up with us.

Finished the day with a nice meal at BJ’s. (It was gone before I got pictures)

Spending quality time with your grandson showing him nature's best and BJs dinner.  Perfection!

Beautiful house but I thought it was under construction?  Looks like it's occupied down to the shower stuff in the bathroom.  Very airy, light and welcoming.

no 🙂 the furniture is our tenant’s, but very similar style to ours minus the white couch which would never hold up for us

I wish I had my real camera today. The sunset tonight coming home from soccer was on point. IPhone just couldn’t handle it. Please accept these poor photo candidates that I present to you.

Fantastic pictures, especially the bottom one. I’m doing a screen shot and sharing it with friends if that’s ok!

I’m wondering if your grandson’s teacher will ask him what he did this summer. 
I don’t know any child including my own that had such a wonderful summer vacation.

That makes sense.  Thanks for the clarification.

Lexi is in meltdown mode, too.

Can't wait to watch it this Friday. I saw a teaser clip on the fight in the hot tub. Holy moly!

We were just two weeks ago laughing about one of our granddaughters who would never have gotten a sports scholarship. 
She was on a soccer team at about age 8, and would run up and down the field, keeping up with the ball. She never took her eyes off the ball, because she wanted to make sure she was always at least 5 feet from it. 
When she played T-ball, I asked her her favorite part of the game. She said Dugout, because she could sit and talk. 
She’s now a special Ed teacher and plays outdoor games with her students.

It's a mess and very time consuming but I think since we discovered it pretty quick we were able to put a stop to it.   

They were signing up for various online accounts, buying i-phones, samsung appliances, tvs, the last one was they tried to get a personal loan thru webbank, etc etc

 

I cannot imagine going thru identity theft twice.  

The first time was many years ago .I was posting on a message board.Somebody stole my identity as well as other people’s and committed crimes.It took 6 months till the guy was caught and arrested.

The second time my wife and I returned from a cruise and went to get our mail from the post office.One of the pieces of mail was a bank statement showing an account opened up in my name and another person,nobody who I ever heard of .I went to the bank and the bank officer tried to talk me out of going to the police.I ignored her and went .I found out that several employees of the bank branch were under investigation .The bank officer who I spoke with resigned the next day and several tellers disappeared.

One of my neighbors was also a victim as well .This took more than a year to be resolved.

She really is annoying.  Will Chef Matt be back?????

I suspect yes though they left it as a clift hanger. Sandy doesn't even know yet that he walked off. She slept though everything.
