For this child I prayed, and the LORD has granted me my petition that I made to him. 1 Samuel 1:27

Stomach flu

There aren't adequate words to describe our weekend, so I'm just going to sum it up.  The plan was to work around the house Saturday and then go out with the kids to Harvey's. One of my students gave me a gift card, and we saved it for our anniversary.  Friday morning, I was nauseated, but I took a nap when the kids napped and felt a little better.  It got much worse that night, and I started having stomach cramps. Then, in the middle of the night, Sean started getting sick.  The two of us have been so sick ever since.  The kids have destroyed the house, and there was nothing we could do but let them.  Frank and Beverly took them Saturday afternoon and brought them back after supper, which was such a gift.  Sean and I slept the whole time they were gone.  Some anniversary!  I am finally starting to feel better, and hopefully Sean will feel better in the morning.  

I take most of my pictures on the weekends, and, needless to say, I didn't get any this weekend. These are a few from earlier in the week.


Luke had just eaten a little dirt.

 It's hard to tell in the picture, but Sam found a branch in the yard, and he called it his deer head.  It did sort of look like antlers.  He is our little hunter in the making.

Father's Day Weekend

We've had the best weekend!  We rolled out of Columbus Friday afternoon headed for Memphis.  We got there at suppertime, headed to One and Only with Pop, and then played at his house. The boys slept until 7:45 Saturday morning, which was such a gift.  After Luke's morning nap, we went to the new Bass Pro Shop in the Pyramid.  It was AMAZING!  Sam had so much fun looking at all the fish and sitting on all of the ATVs.  We went to Belly Acres for lunch, and then we all crashed at Pop's house.  Linda was able to spend the day with us, and we were so glad to have her with us!  After naps, we took the boys to the pool, and it was hilarious.  Sam jumped right into the water from the side of the pool.  I was so shocked that my cautious child was brave enough to do that.  We spent this morning with Pop and Linda, had lunch, and headed home.  Luke slept the whole way home.  Sam, on the other hand, hollered, "I want to go back to Pop's house," for the first hour.  He finally gave up and crashed the rest of the way.  It was a great weekend.



 Sam and Luke loved Linda's chair!




Round 1 of breakfast...bananas

Sam watched videos on Linda's phone a lot. She was so sweet to sit there with him.







My kids will never look at the camera at the same time!!



And a few from my phone





Sam and his sound effects






These are a few from earlier in the week.

Beach Trip, Part 2

Here are the rest of the beach pictures.  I took way too many.


Pure sweetness! I can't believe I captured this moment.


Sam was fishing.









The conversation went something like this..."Lukey, I told you not to go up the stairs,  You might fall. You might get hurt."  As you can tell, Luke didn't care one bit.








Sean has been talking about riding go karts with Sam since he was born.  This was Sam's first ride.  He wasn't scared, but he wasn't at ease, either.  He was all business...but it was all he talked about for the rest of the night.



Poor Luke.  He had to watch Daddy and big brother with Momma.




This is what they did in the mornings.  It was so fun!
