Kindergarten Open House

 Last night was Ellie's Kindergarten Open House, and she was so very excited.  Honestly, I wanted to skip the festivities but decided at the last minute that I would regret that decision one day, so when I picked her up from daycare, we changed clothes and took a few pictures in front of the school before getting Eli.

Our school is the oldest building in the district and just a staple in our little "Mayberry."  They quite literally close the street down for Fall Festival.  The entire community comes out to participate and everyone pulls together for the Back To School Bash and Grandparents Day.  It really is a precious, precious town that centers around the school (and churches). 

We were super early for Open House but didn't have enough time to go home, so after getting the obligatory pictures, we picked up Eli and the kids played on the playground until time for everything to begin.

The entire event was very well done from the red carpet they rolled out for arrival to the classroom visits for students and the bus ride around the block. Even the older siblings were excited to attend.

Once inside, we had no trouble finding our friends.  Like I said earlier, we kinda live in "Mayberry," so these kiddos grow up going to daycare, church, and school together.  Not to mention, they play on the same teams, and sit in the same bleachers, and just do life together.  Neither Eric nor I are from here, but everyone has just loved us and our kids and made us feel like we've been apart of the community for our entire lives!

These three have been friends since birth and I pitty the teacher who ends up with all three of them (or even two of them).  They are the three amigos, and I can't wait to watch their friendship continue to bloom!

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
