Home Again....

Well, we made it! 5 days at the wonderful beach, with rain on only one of them and that was after we made it to the beach and pool! Our boys had a blast and I hope the youth did too. We feel so honored to be asked to plan these trips and then get to go on them with great people. Thanks guys! We ate, we laughed, we played, and all in all enjoyed the company of each other. We were missing one or two, but we understand what kept them from going. I hope they know they were missed!

Back to regular life now. School starts in a matter of a couple of weeks for Alex and only 3 for Will. We are getting ready to wind our summer down and relax for a little while. For today, I will unpack and enjoy the rain... Be Blessed!

Gulf Shores....

We made it this afternoon around 4:15p. We left about 5 this morning. Long trip but lots of fun. Richard and Jacob kept us entertained by singing over the 2 way radios that we took. We knew they could rap?!? We have such a great group of kids and we are honored to get to spend this time with them.

We have eaten dinner, done our Walmart run and now realxing, playing games and enjoying the company of one another. Beach fun for tomorrow and more time together! I plan to keep you up to date as we are here. Pictures to come tomorrow! Be Blessed and thanks again for your support!

New Look...

Okay, so we are playing around with the look of the blog. We like it for now. We are packing up this week to go to Orange Beach on Friday. We are taking some of the youth from our church. We are looking forward to it, we have such a fun group and I know we and they will have a blast!

Alex started soccer camp yesterday. He loved it. He was supposed to go this morning, but it's raining here, so we are playing the wait and see game. Looks like I will have a soccer player in the fall though. Will wants to sign up for basketball, so sports will continue! We love it. Keeps me busy and I love watching the boys do things they enjoy.

Just wanted to give a quick update....Be Blessed

7 Years Ago.....

7 years ago today the Lord saw fit to change our lives, Will was born and we are forever blessed.

Will is a sweet natured, big hearted, wonderful little boy. He lives to play all things sports related- except for soccer, which he reminds us of when we bring it up! He is funny, he is a great big brother to Alex and a sweet friend. I can't believe that he is going into the 2nd grade. It seems like yesterday I put him in a stroller for the first time to go to the mall. To my first born, may your day be all you hope for and this next year be the best one yet! We Love You!
Happy Birthday Will!

Happy 4th of July...

We spent our day at home...It has been wonderful! Mike cooked ribs, we had fries, hush puppies and brownies for dessert. The kids have played in the back yard and we have enjoyed each other as a family.

We hope your 4th was blessed! May we never forget why we are able to celebrate this amazing day. Thanks to all the men and women who fight for our freedom, we are so proud of you!
