Really Random Thursday 6.5.14

It's Thursday again.  Today I'm probably running around freaking out, trying to pack and clean and keep the kid's craziness under control.  We're leaving bright and early Friday morning.

So, a little bit of randomness before we leave.
  The chart is almost full!  I highly recommend this for children so they don't bug you a bazillion times about 'how long until.....'. (we actually leave tomorrow, but I am writing this early)

Saturday and Sunday were the Spring Showcase Performances at E's ballet school. (She's the one in the middle)
 It's so fun to see how much they've learned in a year.  Each level/class does a demonstration, so its nice to see where they were and where they will be in the future.

 Apparently the place in Florida we will be is great for snorkeling, so I've been buying and gathering what we've got around for such activities.

Speaking of Florida wildlife...

This is Gus. Gus the Gecko.  I'm not sure I've mentioned Gus on the blog before.  He was a stowaway from our last trip to Florida.  Seriously, we found him in the car.  We couldn't let him go in Wisconsin, so we've kept him and been feeding him for a whole year.  We didn't know if he'd make it, but he has.  Therefore, we are taking him home!  He is not a very exciting pet.  He is nocturnal and hides all day.  I had to move the rocks around to get a shot of him.  I can't say he'll be missed.

Linking up with Cindy at Live a Colorful Life.

I've got a couple posts scheduled, but it will be pretty quiet around here.  You can always check my IG feed for some vacation shots. rachel_thelifeofriley
