Lance is seven

Lance is now seven years old!  Our big boy is growing so tall and making lots of great progress.  I had a meeting with his teacher this morning and she told me that..."Lance is one of the ones that I'm not worried about."  
That was just so sweet to know that she has confidence in him and that she knows he is going to succeed!
She also said that Lance is the daily line leader!  

Ok, sorry for all the exclamation points there....he, he.

Well, here are a few recent pictures our special birthday boy...

Lance is too big for the push scooter and Clarice is too small for the tricycle, but he still agrees to take turns...

He has been practicing his letters...

Happy Birthday Lance...I love you!  By the way, there are more chocolate cupcakes headed your way tonight.  :)

Made it through the storm

Well we survived Tropical Storm Irma last Monday.  Thankfully we only lost power for seven hours. School was cancelled for three days because of other power outages though. It was a long week.

On the Sunday before we went to church and then out to lunch.  It was really windy while we waited outside...
 People keep giving us more and more girl clothes, but she keeps on insisting on wearing the same blue dress.

Waiting out the storm...before we lost power...

Lance kept wanting to go outside to check things out...this was early afternoon on Monday and there were already quite a few leaves and small tree branches in the yard...

Hope you all have a great week!

2017 Fuzz Run

Hey there everyone!  Well my nephew and I ran in the Covington Fuzz Run again this year.  The weather was a lot cooler with low was a beautiful day!  

This is a picture of us before the run....

And here is one of me and my mom (we call her Baba)...

My nephew ran the race in right at 20 minutes and my time was 27:35.  Last year it was 28:10...I'm getting faster!  But my favorite number of all was my race bib number which was 2881.  Y'all know how I'm always looking for my John 3:16 blessing?  Well, if you add the 1 and the 2 you get 3, and the two 8s for 16!  :)

My mom had her walker with her and my nephew even pushed her in it on the way back to the car...combine that with the fact that I was holding an umbrella over her for shade and we were quite a site!  

Hope you all have a great week!  We're praying the Hurricane Irma situation.  Our schools are even closed tomorrow because of it!

2017 labor day weekend

Clarice and I started off the weekend right with a trip to the bakery.  We walked over there when I picked her up from preschool...

That afternoon Lance was a bit is the only thing that slows him down.  He just wanted to lay in my bed and snuggle and read his books...(I did give him some apple slices to help move things along)

On Saturday I made some popcorn balls.  Clarice tried a bite and didn't like the texture I guess.  Since I was the only one eating them, I had to take a few over to my neighbors! 

On Monday (Labor Day), we took a trip to north Georgia to an apple orchard.  It was ok...just not as much shade as I was hoping for.  There were also a lot on squished apples on the ground and a lot of bugs on them.  And we got lost on the way there...and on the way back...

Then we went to Chick-fil-A on the way back...

I checked out this audio book at the library...after Hurricane Harvey and before I found out about Irma heading this way...

Lastly, I came across the term "Blogtober" for blogging every day in October.  What do y'all think?  Should I give it a try?

What's up Wednesday

Hey everyone!  I hope you all are having a great week!  Here are a few things that are up with  me lately...

I have deactivated my facebook account the last few summers, but this time I'm not going back.  It just seems more negative that positive these days.  Is anyone else with me on this one?

Now that both kids are in school, I have a little more free time.  I've enjoyed watching Love Meg videos on YouTube while I do my crochet work.  She is a Christian and a neat-freak...yay!

We're going to be getting some rain today and tomorrow from Hurricane Harvey.  The end of our driveway floods a little bit...which of course makes it more fun!

The kids and I checked out a local train/hobby shop recently.  It was a lot of fun.  I know where I'll be doing my Christmas shopping this year!
I'm still waiting for some of my library holds to come available, but the Danielle Steel books always seem to be in abundant supply.  I really like this one so far. 

Lastly, I just wanted to tell the few people who do read my blog that I really appreciate you.  It is an honor that you would take the time to read it and keep up with our family.  Love y'all!
