Our Saturday

Eric's cousins and their kids came into town today for a quick visit.  Their daughter, Katie, is very gifted in science and is quite interested in meteorology, so we took her by the station today for "behind the scenes" tour.

Here we are in front of the green screen where we recorded a forecast.

 This is us editing a video we made for Katie to take home to show her family and friends.  I must say that she really impressed me.  Not only did she have an incredible knowledge of the science, she also was conversational and at ease in front of the camera.  I honestly think she may have a future in this.

Above are a couple of pictures of us reading the computer information and getting ready for our forecast.  Ya'll know I love to talk, and it makes me feel important when people actually want to listen...ha!

After the study tour we headed to Mammoth Cave.  It was really too hot to do anything else, and the kids had never been.  Of course, Eli was beside himself that Sammy got to stay and play a littler longer.  They were so cute together!!

After the cave, we ate a late lunch at Cracker Barrel before everyone had to head home. Eric, Eli and I rested for a bit before Nan, Gandad and Colby came up for a visit. It's always a blessing to be surrounded by family.

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
