Summer Vacation 2013: Lake Lanier

We are nearing the end of our week on Lake Lanier.  The girls have had so much fun.  Peyton has been able to sail his boat every day since we've been here.  He even took her out in a BIG storm yesterday.  I was very patient and calm while I waited on him to return.  I have so much faith in him and that boat that I didn't worry at all.  Sabrina and Samantha turned 8 on Tuesday.  We had a birthday cake with an ocean/lake theme.  Sabrina got a new tablet and Samantha got a bike.  They each got Barbie dolls from countries that reminded me of their birth/names.  Samantha, of course, got Ireland...her middle name.  Sabrina got Argentina.  It's a long way to get to the association if you aren't me, but for me, it's easy.  Sabrina is named after Audrey Hepburn.  My favorite Hepburn movie is Breakfast at Tiffany's.  Holly Golightly wants to run off to Argentina to marry a billionaire rancher in the book/movie.  Sabrina's name actually comes from the Hepburn/Bogart movie Sabrina. I am so excited to see the girls growing up.  They are smart and sweet and they have the best sense of humor.  It's a bit dry and serious like their dad's.  They are the kids that you have to almost check yourself to make sure they are joking.  Sometimes, you would never know....which makes it so much funnier if you know them.  We went through a list of questions yesterday while we were out on the boat.    Here are some of their answers.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

Sam:  A vet  Sabrina:  I don't know yet.  Why would I know that now?  Destiny:  FBI Forensic agent or forensic  anthropologist  Amelia:  A dad.

How many kids are you going to have and what will they be?  Sam:  Three/Two boys and one girl
Sabrina:  Four/two boys and two girls  Amelia:  Four/All girls  Destiny:  Two/one boy and one girl

So the potential, not including Michael's kids is that we will have 13 grandkids.  Wow!!!  That's a lot.  Think about the way they might multiply when you decide the number of kids you are going to have.
