~~ Happy Father's Day ~~

We Love You!

They sat still long enough for me to snap a couple of pictures after church. They are all eager to get out of their church clothes. By the way, it was a total accident that their shirts matched. Jesse had spent the night at OMA's and I didn't even remember what shirt I packed. Breann was able to make it over for dinner. Phillip wanted oysters, so we ended up at Hooters. The kids love the burgers and salads there. It was a great day with family.

Soccer Star

Michael had his first soccer game this morning. It was at 9:00, but it was already hot. They started out strong, but only a few of children lasted the entire game. The 3 year olds kind of come and go as they please. (It is like this at practice too.) The coach tried to keep 5 players out there the entire game. Michael, bless his heart, was one of them. He was so hot and really, really was ready to be done, but he was a team player and kept going. He was amazing, going after the ball and nearly scoring several goals. I was so proud of him! It is going to be a long, hot 8 weeks of soccer, but it is going to be so much fun watching Michael, his team and his coaches play!

Basketball Star

Jesse had his first basketball game at the Y. He has only had 2 practices and they were both at the same time of Michael's practice so I had not seen all his moves until this morning-I was totally impressed. I wasn't sure how it was going to go with 5 on the court at once and how they were going to keep them all going in the right direction and dribbling and shooting and passing. It was so cool how they matched up the players from each team, they had each player wear a colored wristband and the player on the other team wearing the same color was the player was who they guarded. I was so proud.....he did awesome! His teammates and his coaches did awesome too! It is going to be a great 8 weeks!

~ College Bound ~

Congratulations Breann!!

~ Class of 2009 ~

Yesterday was a BIG day for Breann

Graduation Day!!

She made it through 12 years of school and finally graduated from high school last night at 8:30pm. It was crazy that the ceremony was so late, we didn't get out of the Erwin Center until 10:55, but it was special night. My only complaint is that because it was so late afterwards we were rushed taking pictures which is usually hard when there are two families anyway. I could go on and on, but this isn't the post for that. I wasn't able to get a picture of just Breann in her cap and gown or a family (all 6 of us) picture.
Here is what I did get:

I must admit it was a little sad. It went by so fast. I know that she is so excited to be moving on to the next stage of her life---COLLEGE---she will be going off to Texas Tech in Lubbock next fall. Congrats sweet girl, we love you!

All or Nothing

It is sad, but true......I am an all or nothing blogger.
I haven't posted anything in over a month. I realized that I start a post, then I get side tracked and/or I want to add pictures that I haven't downloaded yet and/or I have to get off the computer to feed or do something for or with the kids. What it comes down to is I have too many posts started and I never go back and finish them so I can publish them. Before I know it, I have another half finished post that I don't want to post until I edit and post the post before it. Does that even make sense? It is almost summer and it is fixing to get busy around here. My goal is to post more regularly, but there will probably be some old posts popping up randomly here and there. Just giving ya the heads up.
