Our Girly Girls!

excited to go to sleep so she can see her curls!


Hoping she can get some sleep in these curlers!  Love this precious time with my girls!

Time with Cub-a-lou

These two "get" each other!  It is a bond that will never be broken!  Cubby likes the rest of us, but he LOVES Mia.


This girl LOVES shopping for clothes!  


What fun for the girls to go through all of the treasure dad brought home!

Weekend of Love!

Ansley Parker and I spent last weekend together!  It was so much fun having this girl all to myself.   We ventured out to the fair….what a cultural experience that was.  We loved the farm animals and home made goods, the rides and carnival!   We snuggled in each morning and talked about everything and anything!  We shopped and we ate lunch out!  Mostly we just spent time together and made memories.  I am so blessed that God chose me to be this little girl's mama!

Mia Scott and S. spent the weekend at Camp Highland.  You can see it all over their faces that they had an amazing bonding time!   I love this weekend for our girls and their daddy.  God continues to bless their relationship and is building memories that truly will last a lifetime!

Crazy Sock and Hat Day

We love fun dress days at JAE!

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!

Making Memories!

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!

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!
