Lead Me

LOVE the song "Lead Me" by Sanctus Real....the part especially has hit me close to home how that the kids deserve the best of my life.  There are parts of me that want to scream at some parents "ITS NOT ABOUT YOU RIGHT NOW!"  So, just a reminder to myself - more than to anyone that actually reads my blog :o) - Give your kids the best of your life while you have them - they won't live with you forever - hopefully - and you can NEVER get the time back! If you have been blessed to have children - take care of them - its the greatest gift God can give you! Listen to the song if you haven't ever heard it.  Have a great Friday!

Update #2

This year David celebrated his birthday in Austin at the state track meet.  So, when he got home we had to celebrate it properly.  And when I say celebrate in Austin, that means he went to Cabella's.  We had strawberry cheesecake and the kids were super excited to sing to him!

This is some of Rielyns artwork.  The one in the middle looks like a potato to me, but apparently it is a toad...We have a cat, a dog, a frog and a potato...i mean toad.:)

Hawaiian day at school

First swim of the summer! It is a chore to get her to take good pictures.  I think she has learned from Keldyn how to be silly for the camera.  When he was 5 it was nearly impossible to get a good picture from him. 

This is a good one....what you don't know is that its one out of about 10 that I had to take...bc the child mentioned earlier would not cooperate!

Swimming with some cousins.  Two of Tiff's kiddos swam with us one day.  That have so much fun together.

Update #1

We were at a little league baseball game and it got chilly - she decided to where my jacket as a suit...mainly for the pants....she looked so silly running around like that but she totally did not care!  This girl cracks me up!

The boys had a good season, I think their team got 2nd or 3rd in the division.  What's wierd is that they already know that if you don't make all stars then that means you aren't that we had to deal with explaining that....they did not make all stars by the way :)

He's getting too big too fast

Sarah, Charlie, Tiffany and myslef ran in the Longview Alley Fest 5k.  I think we all had fun.  It seemed hotter this year than last.  I got 2nd in my age group....yes the old ladies division....but still had fun.  Running like this keeps me basketball leagues for old ladies so this will have to do!

The boys had a friend from church spend the night for 3 days - we all had a blast.  He fit right in with us, he's smart and funny and respectful....many more good times to come.  This was before they went to see Thor....the girls sat out of this one.

Instead, we did this....sat on the back porch with a strawberry smoothie...homemade....and just hung out.
