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!
