The US Soccer team played a Gold Cup match in Nashville on July 8, and these boys were so happy when Jason surprised them with tickets at the last minute.

On July 3, we went over to watch the Hendersonville fireworks with lots of friends from church.
On July 4, we went over to Jeremy and Tammy's house for dinner and fireworks fun. Brody and Colby loved shooting some things off with Jason and Jeremy. Me, Tammy, and the girls loved watching...from a distance. Ha!
I have always loved fitness, and I have a passion for sharing that love of fitness with others. Over the last several months at Burn, that passion has gotten even stronger. I have always thought about getting my personal trainer certification, but something always stopped me...the timing wasn't right, I felt bad devoting time to something other than my family and home, I was just plain scared.
With encouragement from Jason, my boys, and some of my Burn family, I finally took the leap and went for it. I got my study materials at the beginning of May, and I devoted as much time possible each day to studying. Some days, I found a couple hours, but some days, I couldn't find any time to study. I just did the best I could with what time I had.
I decided to schedule my test for the day before our vacation. I knew I didn't want to worry about studying while enjoying my family and friends on vacation, and I didn't want to miss out on a whole week of studying. I drove to the testing center in Murfreesboro on June 23 and got it done!! I cannot tell you how awesome it felt to pass that test and know that I was now a CPT.
I am so thankful for Jason and my boys' support and encouragement. I would have never gone for it without them cheering me on. I hope I make them proud!
Brody attended a soccer camp with Coerver Coaching the week of June 19-23. This is the first soccer camp he has done away from his home club, and he absolutely loved it! I'm glad he was able to do it with his best buddy, Carter, and Carter's friend, Miller. I think all three boys had a great week and received lots of instruction and skills practice.

Colby attended his second Church Day Camp at Whispering Pines June 12-16. Since Brody is too old this year to attend, Colby was on his own. I love when my boys get to experience things together, but it's also great when they get the opportunity to experience things independently.
Colby had so much fun! He was surrounded by great kids, awesome counselors, and two amazing camp directors. We are thankful for this week every summer for the kids to explore, play, swim, and learn more about God.
On Friday night, we joined all the campers at Whispering Pines for dinner and awards. Colby received the Camper of the Week award for the entire camp, and we could not be any prouder of him!! His love for God, love for others, and desire to help others make us so happy!
Colby and other little heart heroes got together to create art masterpieces that will be auctioned off in the Fall. All proceeds from the auction will benefit CHD research. We are thankful that Colby could be a small part of this effort, and we think his Predators piece turned out great!

Colby wrapped up his Spring Soccer Season with a tournament in Clarksville on May 21-22. His team played really well and had a lot of fun. Another TN United team was short some players, so Colby and Bennett got to guest play on their team as well. This meant Colby played 6 games total!! It was a long and hot weekend, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. I love watching Colby play this game that he loves so much!
