My Poor Blog

My poor blog has been severely neglected. I can't believe it has been so long since I've posted. Hopefully that gives you a little idea of just how busy we have been. I'm hoping to get it updated in the coming weeks, so please be patient with me!

4th of July

Luckily, Friday was my holiday at work so I was able to see the kids 4th of July parade. It came a monsoon Friday morning, so they had to move it inside but they were so cute. I love that Primrose does so much of this stuff. It is so fun and the kids love it!

Vacation Bible School

I was extremely fortunate to take the week off again this summer to work at our Vacation Bible School. In a word, it is amazing what our church is able to do. We had 600 kids and 300+ volunteers. We use all the buildings on our campus and it is just unbelievable. I was so glad to be able to do this with Adam again this year. He has such a great time and I love sharing that with him (while he still likes for me to).

McWane Center

For the Memorial Day weekend, we went to my parent's house. On Sunday, we decided to go and check out the McWane Center since we had never been there. We had the best time. The kids loved it and it wasn't too boring for the adults either!

Soccer and more soccer

I was so proud of Adam for doing such a great job playing soccer this year. Two years made a lot of difference. I know some three year olds may really be into it, but Adam wasn't. This year, he had a great time. I'm sure it helped that his best buddy Tyler was on the team as well. Tyler is also one of the superstars on the team. :-) They had a great year. I've included some photos from the last few games and the end of year celebration.

Pre-K Graduation - May 14th

I still can't believe Adam is finished with Pre-K and will be going to Kindergarten this fall. I'm not sure where the time has gone. Every day when I look at him, he is starting to look older to me. I guess that is part of growing up.

His Pre-K graduation ceremony was excellent! It is just one of the many things that Primrose does so well. The kids sang several songs and then presented each child with their diploma. I'd love to say I didn't cry, but that wouldn't exactly be true. I love my little graduate!!

April Beach Trip

I have one of those crazy holidays at work in April - Confederate Memorial Day. No one else gets it off, but I always have a Monday off in April. So this year, we decided to head for the gulf and visit Orange Beach for a few days. My dad was able to join us for part of the time. I'm so glad we went when we did considering all of the oil mess now. We had a great time, the weather was pretty nice (except for a bad storm that came through one day), and the boys enjoyed playing on the beach. I hope they are able to keep the oil contained and the beaches clean - my children love the beach and love the gulf area and I want them to be able to enjoy it for many years to come.


We had lots of fun at Easter egg hunts this year. The boys were so cute....we had hunts at their school and at church. I can firmly say that both of them truly understood the concept this year. :-)

Lack of blogging.....

There really aren't any excuses for not keeping the blog up to date, except that most days I'm just too tired to blog. It's kind of sad in a way. I really enjoyed blogging when I started it and I'm trying to find the passion to start it up again...I will hopefully catch it up in a day or two. Hope everyone is well!

Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday is always one of my favorite services. But, this one was very special because Adam helped bring in palm branches. He was so cute and did a great job! They sang after they came in with the palm branches. I love that we have all these great opportunities at our church!

Children's Museum PJ Party

Saturday night after the freezing cold soccer game, we went to the Children's Museum PJ party. We had such a good time. The kids went in their pj's, took their stuffed animals and had a couple of hours to play at the museum. The museum had food and snacks so we had a really great time. Needless to say the boys were wiped out when we got home.

Spring Soccer - First Game!!

Our first soccer game was Saturday and it was so cold!! Adam did a great job. He played the entire game and never came out. They don't keep score at this age and that is ok with us. He even played goalie some. I love that he is enjoying being and out and playing and it certainly helps that his friend Tyler is playing too.

Spring Bonnet Parade

The boys preschool had a spring bonnet parade in March. It was so much fun and the kids were so cute. I was so glad I could go into work late that day so I could see the parade. The boys had a great time. Andrew had on a "tie" and "boutenniere" and Adam was a watering can while the girls in his class were sunflowers. I was so glad it was such a pretty day!

Adam Singing with the Cherub Choir

Adam hasn't always going to choir...once he gets there he's fine. He just doesn't want to go. This was March 7th and his choir sang at our contemporary service. They were singing Thy Word. It really is fun to hear him singing it around the house. :-) Here's a few photos from the day.

Adam Turns Five

Time certain seems to fly. I can't believe Adam turned five on March 3rd. Wow! He is growing up and is such a fun child. He makes us laugh every day and is such a good big brother. He is so much fun and I can't thank God enough for giving us such a precious child.

We had his birthday at DAC Kids the last Saturday in February. We had several of his Primrose classmates at this party along with some our sweet Due West friends. And of course, Grammie and Grandpa came for the party as well. He loves being five. His new favorite pastime is Lego's and he loves them. He can't have enough of them.

We had some very sweet friends who gave us tickets to the circus. I had not been to a Ringling Brothers circus in years. The seats were really good and we had a great time. I had forgotten about things like the protesters standing outside and yes, we went the night a zebra got loose and was on the interstate in Atlanta! Oh well! It was an adventure and worth every minute of it.

Valentine's Day and SNOW!!

I was lucky enough to be able to go to the boys Valentine's Day parties at school. I was so glad that they staggered the start times so I could actually go to both of them. After the parties were over, I brought both the boys home early and had them take naps. Little did we know that by the time they woke up, we'd have snow on the ground. And, lots of snow on the ground. It was great because it snowed a lot on Friday, some was still on the ground on Saturday, but by Sunday, it was almost all gone. My favorite kind of snow is when it doesn't stay for very long!

Andrew Turns 2

Andrew turned 2 on January 25th. We had a family birthday party at my Mom and Dad's on the 23rd. We had a farm themed 2nd birthday and had a great time. Lots of food, great family and great cake. Who could ask for anything more?

Then on Andrew's actual birthday, we had our friends Mr. Spiff and Ms. Janet come over and have pizza and birthday cake with us.

I cannot believe that Andrew is already 2. I'm not sure where the past two years have gone. It really seems like just yesterday that we were bringing him home from the hospital. We love you Andrew and can't imagine our lives without you!

Georgia Aquarium

We finally made it back to the Georgia Aquarium. Adam had been begging to go for months and we loaded up and went. We had the best time! The boys had so much time exploring. We were a little sad that the Beluga Whales are off site right now while the dolphin exhibit is being built, but it just gives us a great excuse to go back!

Imagine It Children's Museum

On New Year's Day, Ken worked so I decided to load up the kids and try out Imagine It. It is the children's museum in Atlanta near the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coke. The boys and I had a great time. They played for a solid three hours and would have stayed longer. We enjoyed it so much that we now have a family membership. I can't wait to take them back when Ken can go as well.

Where did December go....

I still can't believe December is over.... I'm not sure where the month went. It seemed like before I knew it the month was over and it was January.

But, December was a great month. For a lot of reasons. Here are just a few of them....

The first weekend in December Adam sang in the Children's Musical at church
The second weekend in December was the Musical Program at the church - Ken played in the Orchestra
Ken started a new job with IBM
Preschool Parties
Christmas Eve Services at church
Celebrating Christmas with family
Two weeks off work

I've included some of the photos from a really great December! Happy New Year everyone!
