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

Crazy week and a lazy weekend

It was the last week of school, and it was as busy as the first week. It was a crazy year, but I was so blessed by the kids and parents this week. We had Awards day, water day, a dunking booth, and we made memory books. I was so exhausted and thankful for the weekend. I have to go back for inservice tomorrow and Tuesday, and then I'm done. Friday afternoon, we headed to Tuscaloosa for much-needed haircuts, supper, and an Aldi run. It was a fun night. Saturday, we took the kids to the park early because it was supposed to storm all day. They had a blast, and the weathermen were correct. It stormed all day, and we were lazy all afternoon. Today, we went to church and took 3 hour naps. It was great!! We are so ready for summer!

Luke is 3!

We had a BIG weekend around here.  Luke turned 3 Friday, and I'm still a little emotional about it.  Time flies, especially with three amazing kids.  Dad and Linda got in town Friday afternoon, and we went to Harvey's.  Saturday, we tried the hotel swimming pool, which was freezing.  Then we had Luke's birthday lunch.  Nana and Frank came over, and Sean made tacos. Luke loves tacos!  Luke opened his presents, and he loved every single one of them.  We gave him a bike, and we went outside to test it out.  Everyone took good naps, and then we went to Profitt's Porch for supper.  This morning, we had a big breakfast, hung out with Pop and Linda, and then met Nana, Frank, and Mawmaw for lunch.  It was a wonderful Mother's Day, and it was a wonderful way to end a great weekend with family.  I am very thankful for my mom, grandmother, and mother-in-law this Mother's Day!

These were from Thursday night.  Sam's teacher made him a scrapbook, and it's the most precious thing.  We've all looked at it a bunch, and it's just as sweet every time we look at it.












































My mom gave Luke a nap mat, and he is so excited about it.  He put it in his bed and has slept on it every night.
