Chicks of the Sea!

Hi Everyone -
We hope you are enjoying your summer!
It certainly is a hot one for us in the South...(Florida that is)
Thank goodness for watermelon, popsicles and swimming pools!

As you can see we've been busy doing a little renovating on our blog in
hopes to end the confusion as to who is who around here.

If you don't know by now, you'll soon realize
who's got the beauty and who's got the brains!

Now that we've got that cleared up...
We've got some great things to share with you!


 We are celebrating our 100th Blog Post!
(cue the confetti and balloons)
Hugs & Kisses to all our readers for your never ending 
interest, support and comments!


We recently participated in

It was our first attempt at making dolls,
as neither one of us are gifted with the "art of sew"!!!
We rose to the challenge to create a sea creature which we would
then swap with other blog artists around the world.

Self Help Art and the Letter S

Here's the latest paint swirl... I guess I was in the mood for creating self help art... I randomly cropped words from a book and then stacked them to read:

 "We must learn to be come ourselves without despair, learn to live our own life in in the same world together and truly see one another with new eyes"    

Yup that's a Kim Turner original quote! You better write that one down people! :)   And then for lack of more random words, I  quoted Gandhi:

"Be the change you want to see in the world"  

This one I am really trying to live by!

okay - so summer is officially 3 more school days away.  My son Owen has been counting down the days on our kitchen chalkboard. 

It has been a long year for that little guy, I hate to tell him that he has 12 more long years - not counting college.  My other son Dylan will be starting middle school next year. I am not sure who is more nervous me or him... probably me!  

So I have been jotting down ideas of how to affordably spend our summer! So far I have: 

1. swimming  

How's that for a list?  

Soooooo folks, how will you entertain your little monsters and goblins during the next approximate 10 weeks, 70 days or so?  Hit me with some ideas!  That means... leave me a Comment! :) Please & Thank You!

Ok I am off to soccer practice.... Oh I can add that to the list too... swimming & soccer.  Maybe we will only do things that start with the letter S this Sssssummer! :)

Ssseee Ya! - Kim :)
