My Birthday Baby

Today my baby girl turned 6 years old. She is sensitive, sweet, and head-strong who loves to be playful and spend time with her family.

Today, she wore her special "Birthday Girl" shirt (of course that I made for her) and took treats to her class friends. Luckily, my conference time at school was during the time they were having treats so I got to paticipate while they were singing to her and sharing her day with her!

Happy birthday Boo! We love you...may God bless the journey you still have to take as he has blessed our journey together this far!

First Days of School

We are officially off and running with 3 kids in school. Ashley actually missed her first day of school due to a stomach bug. When she was asked to describe her firs day of school she said she spent it in the bathroom throwing up...we had to explain that wasn't the first day of school, it was actually today.

Here are some pictures of my sweet babies growing up into a sensitive kindergartener, passionate second grader, and a typical, yet amazing seventh grader. I hope this year proves to be a fantastic success for us all!

Tomorrow is D-Day!

I am so nervous about my baby girl starting kindergarten and my oldest baby going to middle school. The first day of school this year is going to be rather hard on me and my emotions, but I am sure it will prove to be a great day!

Here's to all of my kids' teachers and a great year! I hope that Ashley gets a great foundation to her academics, Clara blooms in 2nd grade, and Richard is successful in all of his 4 AP classes on top of football, basketball, and band!

Life with 3 kids in school is going to be a roller coaster but oh so much fun!

Tonight my family got together, as we have so many times, to celebrate! Tonight we celebrated my cousin Bobby and his partner-for-life now Esmer...Finally Got Married! I am so happy that they finally made it official although Esmer has been a part of our family for about 7-8 years now. It was a load of fun seeing all the kids dance and have a great time and even my grandma danced and let loose a little. I love all of my family and really enjoyed seeing everyone there and missed those who couldn't make it!

Here's to a Life Full of Laughter for Bobby and Esmer...and my entire family!

Our Trip to Georgia

What a great way to start off the summer! We took a 12 hour car ride to Franklin, GA (about an hour outside of Atlanta) to visit Keith's cousin and his family. We visited them for the first time last year and had a blast. Our families meshed so well and we can't wait to see them again! We were there for only 4 days but what fun we had just simply hangin' out and takin' it easy. I think the kids are still trying to recover. Thank you Scott family for having us invade your house, space, time, and pool for the week. We love you guys!

I'm Back!

It has been a while since I have had the time to post anything. We have been so busy with football, cheerleading, band, choir, work, school, home, family, etc. Need I say more. Here are some pictures of what has been keeping us busy!

Richard's Intermediate school choir concert - Final one

Intermediate school band - we made it through the first year of playing the mini-tuba.

Our last year of youth football.

My football star - the Center!

More pictures to come of the girls events!
