Once again....I am so ready for school to be OUT.  Ready for the Summer to begin and for all the kids to be home running around with me.   

The only drawback is that in just 38 more days..{July 4th}..Tyler will be leaving for bootcamp!  :(

My greatest joy...some of my greatest strengths come from my family.

Memorial Day has a deeper meaning for me this year.  This is not something that I am proud of!  I am pretty sure that I had some uncles who may have served in the Military, such as World War I or II.  Same goes for Sam and his family.  

With this being said....Memorial Day takes on a whole new meaning for me.  Please do not get me wrong......I have always had the utmost respect for our Military men and women.  I am extremely thankful for the Freedom's that we have and I do not take it lightly that this freedom comes with a cost.  

Many, have given their lives in order for us to be free!!  I think that I have always acknowledged Memorial Day as a day to Memorialize the fallen, to Honor each of them....but I honestly have not ever felt the way that I do this year.   

Our family has never celebrated Memorial day with cookouts, swimming, spending time at the lake, or

So many things have happened around this place, since I last posted!  We have had Birthdays....As in a New Teenager around this place!   Trey turned 13 on May 14th....and he already looks like he is about 18. He stands about 5'9" and weighs a good 205 lbs!! 


This picture of Trey was taken a couple of years ago...He has sure changed a whole lot since then!  He is our grandson that likes to shy away from the camera!  Hard to get a picture of him!!

Tom (our SIL) just finished his "Free Throws for Souls" event....and what a great accomplishment!!  The Lord uses him in a mighty way.   Tom shot over 21,000 free throws in a twenty four hour period and he made close to 15,000 of those shots.  All money goes to "Gods Open Hands" and to "Project Transformation." This is a project that allows the youth and their leaders of two of our area churches, to go out and help build wheelchair ramps and other needs for the elderly.


I have had some work going on here at the house.  A new Tile floor put down in the extra bath...and oh my, it looks beautiful.  

I am so happy to get this done, and  tomorrow...I get to spend time putting that space back together...

Sam and I helped organize our 45th High School Class Reunion...It was held on May 14th...same day as Trey's birthday.  WOW WOOZA....lots of fun was had!

So nice to see old friends that we had not seen in a while. There were a couple of classmates that came, whom I have not seen since we graduated!!!  LOTS OF CHANGE!!!

I am so ready for school to be OUT!
Love it when my kiddos are out for the summer...

What has been happening in your part of the Country??
