Summer Art Lesson

The boys had a little summer Art Lesson with our friend Megan, and I think it was a big success!!  Wow!  We cannot believe how much they learned and how awesome their pieces turned out.  These boys are looking forward to another lesson before Megan heads off to college this Fall.  

Colby's Church Camp

So thankful for an awesome week at church camp for Colby!  He even had a great time spending the night on Thursday, despite being a little nervous at first.  We are so thankful for our church family and for all the great memories these kids made through the week!  Colby even brought home the Sports Award...we all know he takes his sports very seriously!!  

Father's Day Fun

We kicked off Father's Day Weekend with a little Father's Day workout at Burn.  I think the boys had a lot of fun, and I think Jason was a good sport. I love having the opportunity to share Burn with my family!!  We then spent the rest of the weekend on the boat.  This is by far our favorite family fun activity, and I'm thankful we could enjoy it for Father's Day!  These boys were definitely blessed with one awesome dad!!!  

Happy Father's Day to our family's anchor!  The one who keeps us grounded.  The one who keeps us laughing.  The one who keeps us happy!  We LOVE you BIG Jason!!!!

Maryville Soccer Camp

Brody headed back to Maryville College for soccer camp again this year.  He loved the camp so much last summer, and he couldn't wait to be back! I think he and Carter had a great week together doing what they love!

Big Camp for Brody

Brody was able to attend our church's Big Camp for the first time, and he absolutely LOVED it!!  They take Grades 6-12 to Whispering Pines for a week, where they learn more about God, grow closer to God, and have a whole lot of fun!  I am so thankful for our church family, these sweet friends, and the adults that made this week possible!

Last Day of School

I cannot believe this school year is already over!!  This was by far the fastest one yet.  4th grade and 6th grade complete!  Now we are ready to soak up all the summer fun we can have!!  

Colby gets Braces

Getting braces put on his top teeth was not really the start to summer that Colby wanted, but it sure beats a pacemaker surgery like last summer!!  

Middle School Awards Day

Our first Middle School Awards Day, and this almost 7th grader received the Drama Award for the 6th grade class.  Theater was the one class this year he was not super excited about, because he said he couldn't act.  I love that he stepped out of his comfort zone to try something new, and he proved himself wrong!  He was an awesome Johnny Appleseed!

Clarksville Spring Soccer Tournament

It was a long weekend of soccer in Clarksville for the final tournament of the Spring Season.  We are so proud of both our boys and their teams!  It's always fun to watch them learn and improve.  We have been blessed with great coaches and great teams this year!  The highlight of the weekend was seeing Colby's team finish with finalist medals!!

Mother's Day

Thank you God for these blessings!! Being their mom is an honor and a privilege that I never want to take for granted.  There are good days, where I feel like I'm killing this mom game, and there are a whole lot of bad days, where I wonder how in the world we will all survive.  I am so humbled that God trusts me with these incredible little humans, and I'm so thankful that He provides me guidance and wisdom on raising these boys into men.  

I'm also thankful for Jason, who is the BEST dad and role model God could have given our boys.  

Happy Mother's Day to all, especially to my mom (aka Poogie), who continues to show me what it means to be a great mom and friend!
