William Morgan 1924 - 2014.
We entered AA into the NFJG Tournament at the King and Bear, World Golf Village, for a two day tournament. Originally, we were told that she would also be able to play in Sunday's U.S. Kids Tournament (Queen's Harbor), but unfortunately, the tee times were changed to much later such that we would not be able to play, so withdrew.
Playing in the NFJG is very challenging, the foundation girls play from the ladies tees, so this course was 2700 yards; very long, almost double what AA usually plays (1300 - 1600). It is a great experience and we had three other families that were very enjoyable to hang out with for the two days.
The weekend began with me trying a new blue cheese dip which turned out way too STRONG for everyone. I liked the sharp tang, but no one else seemed to be able to tolerate it!
We continue to look occasionally for homes in the St. Augustine area; we hope to be able to decide by end of school year (isn't that when everyone moves?). We enjoyed a leisurely drive and a stop at the park to stretch our legs and a quick drink at one of the great waterfront bars in St. Augustine, The Conch House. We found a house lot just 7 house lots from the Conch House. It also dawned on us that there is a marina, so we could keep our boat there too.
This week flew by (don't they all?)!
I worked three days, AA had early dismissal on Thursday and no school on Friday!
Our days were filled with fun and more driving - we are driving so much to the Orlando area!
This week, wonderful Hubby went to a Jacksonville business and picked up a donation for our Children's Home. It was a full/HUGE pallet of shampoo. We love being able to help deliver donations (even though we did not have anything to do with getting it, we can still truck stuff to the Home!).
So Thursday, Ford and AA, after early school dismissal, drove south to the Children's Home to drop off the donation pallet, then went to her golf lesson with Mr./Coach Jason. I heard she had a great time with Jason; he is skilled at making corrections to her swing, while including lots of encouragement. She says she likes the way he makes it fun! They played nine holes together which gave Daddy Caddie a break to watch AA play instead of being in the action. We can't wait to see how well AA progresses over the coming year!
Friday was a no school day! AA golfed with her Daddy while I caught up on house chores. Then we went to AA's horse riding lesson. I am researching two other stables that may be more suited to her; we shall see. She had a great lesson with K'Leigh at Diamond D Ranch:
