Saturdays Have Meaning Again!

When I woke up this morning all was quiet in my house!   I walked into my living room and no one was here.   Ansley was still at her sleep over.  S. and Mia were out mowing the lawn!   I realized I got to sleep in…..I LOVE Saturday mornings!

First Day of School!



Ansley ready to tackle 3rd Grade!  Mrs. Freebern is the teacher leader for JAE, so she was in a class and unavailable for a 1st day picture!  Ansley is LOVING 3rd grade especially all of the big kid school supplies….BINDER!   



Mia and Ms. Goodfellow!  What a great start to her second grade year.  She has finally declared she LOVES reading.   I am so thankful!   She is a great reader but has always said recess and lunch were her favorite subjects!   I am thankful for a great beginning!


Making Pickles



What fun to make homemade pickles!

Teacher Gifts…..and Meet the Teacher Night!


It has been a busy week here.  I officially went back to work on July 24th, with professional development.   The days of 3 months of summer vacation are not realistic anymore.   Last week was busy with more PD and registration nights.   The girls got to meet their teachers on Thursday.   Mia Scott will be spending the year with Ms. Goodfellow in 2nd grade, and Ansley Parker will be in 3rd grade with Mrs. Freebern.  They greeted their teachers with the above gifts.  I know God has lots of fun and learning prepared for these two.  

Squeezing in the LAST of summer!





So thankful for great friends that invited us to join them on the lake for a few hours of fun before we had to be at school for registration!  School starts early here….so we still get to do summer stuff even if it is now limited to weekends only!

Mia's 7th Birthday!





7.24.14
We have a 7 year old!




All her wishes came true!   We celebrated with a restaurant of her choice and lots of LOVE! Thanks for everyone that lifts this gift up in prayer and love.   She is a blessed little girl.  I know God has big plans for her.  She is so much fun, kind hearted and truly filled with JOY!

Friends!

Our precious friends The Freeman's have moved to Florida.  We miss them so much but know we will be lifelong friends with these amazing people.  Emma Grace and Ansley have shared two school years of memories and there is always a party with Mia and Ella Kate!  Love these precious girls!

Ans recovering from a spill!

Braxton has moved in a few doors down.  He and Mia have become instant friends playing all kinds of outdoor stuff!  Scooters, Pogo sticks and bikes are current favorites!
