Alligator in my parking lot!

For those of you who know me or know about my family, we are from New York and moved to Florida a few months ago.  We are city slickers!!  When I first moved here my son watched from his classroom a gator catcher taping up the gators mouth.  Then a few weeks later a police chase that crashed less than a few blocks from his school caused it to go on lockdown because of a criminal on the run.

So this morning my son wakes me up a little after to 6 and says "Mom get up.  Daddy is outside.  There is an alligator in the parking lot under a car and you gotta take me to school"....So I jumped outta bed, ran down the stairs and outside.  Well low and behold......there was a big gator underneath my neighbors car.  Only a few parked cars away from mine!!  The neighbor had told us that when he walked out to his car at 5am he tripped over something.  He went back inside to get a flashlight and he heard a loud hiss.  He knew it was a gator.  he tripped over its tail trying to get to the driver door!!!!

Can you imagine?  I would have shit a brick...Seriously!  So we curious city slickers stood outside snapping pictures and video and waited for the police and gator catcher to get there. They measured it at 7 feet 9 inches.  As scary as it was it also was amazing to see at the same time.  Sadly the gator catcher explained to us that 4 feet and under is catch and release.  Over 4 feet they have to kill it.   My mom who has lived here 8 years and my MIL who has been here 13 never seen a gator up close and personal.  We are are less than a year and its in our yard...Whats next?  A snowstorm in florida?  Thats my luck.

The final countdown to Florida

We are finally down to the last few weeks here in New York.  A part of me is very sad but the other part is a little excited.  I am sad to leave my family and friends and everything I have ever known.  I am excited because hopefully life as I know it should get better (financially) and I will be closer to my mom and husbands family.

I don't know if my kids realized it yet but their summer will be cut short because school starts  in Florida the beginning of August.  I feel bad for them.  I know they are sad to leave behind their friends and school and they are scared of starting a new school.  When I was growing up  I moved alot and went to several different schools.  Luckily by the time I was 8 or 9 we settled down in a small town and stayed there until I finished high school.  So I honestly can say I know how my kids feel with the fear of the unknown. 

It's going to be very difficult for us the next few months.  Mr. Amazing hit a little snafu at work and has to stay up here in New York until the end of the year and possibly the beginning of January.  We haven't worked out the details yet of how we will go back and forth visiting each other....But I have tried to keep telling myself that I need to pretend I am a miliary wife....They don't see there husbands for long periods of time because they are serving their country(mine is serving our great city of New York) and have no choice but to work, take care of the kids and house by themself. 

On another note I have alot to do the next few week trasitioning into our new digs.  Before we go I am going to have a pen pal party for my little social butterfly of a daughter next week.  I am trying to figure out what to get so they can make a little letter writing kit. I am open for
