Picture Overload

Last weekend, we had pictures with Faith. She is the most A.MAZ.ING photographer. I love girls love her...and we LOVE her pics.

So, when I called her for pictures, she said she was hoping to do some pictures with a client in a field with hay and would I be interested. I told her, of course!

Saturday morning at 7:30am, we met in a random field and she started snapping away. It got hot fast and we dragged the girls all over that field! But, it was TOTALLY worth it. (I even bribed Emma and Hannah with ice cream on our way home to get the last didn't work with Catherine and that's why she isn't in them!)

The finished products. (I am SO in love with these girls!)

Kindergarten Celebration

Emma finished up her Kindergarten career in early June. If you ask her she says "FINALLY", but if you ask me, I say "too quickly".

It's amazing how much she has learned, matured and grown over the past year. She is reading some chapter books, magazines and anything she can get her hands on. Emma LOVES to teach Hannah the things she has learned. She, also, is pretty good at Math, but I am not sure she likes it too much.

During her Kindergarten Celebration, all the kids were asked what they like best about the school year. Kids named field trips, projects they did in class, etc. Not Emma...she stood up there and loudly announced her favorite thing about Kindergarten was, "snack time and recess".

They sang songs, but Ems was NOT a fan of standing in front of everyone singing...she pretty much stood there and mumbled the words. No hand motions and certainly no beaming smile. But, we wouldn't have expected anything differently from her.

I only have a few BLURRY pictures. These are before I got my new camera AND to top it off, my old one died in the middle of it all. Travis, Hannah and I were so proud of her. (Hannah may have been the proudest of all!)

First Weekend of Summer

To us, this is not only a time to be especially thankful for all the men and women who serve/have served in the military to make this country a safe, free place, but it's also...


We went to Hot Springs to spend the weekend at my parents on the lake and at their pool (like we do every year.)

We always have so much fun swimming, tubing, riding in the boat, grilling and spending time with the family. It is always so much fun. I won't bore you with all the details, but instead post WAY too many pictures. ENJOY!
