So, here is a new picture of our family. In case you didn't know, we have a young man from Mexico living with us this school year. His name is Andres. He is an awesome addition to our family. He seems to fit right in. The kids absolutely love him. He is just a great guy. He plays soccer for Georgia Christian. I hear he's pretty amazing at soccer. We'll definitely be at a few soccer games this year!
Anyway, the kids started school last Friday. They are now in 1st and 2nd grade. My children are growing up way too fast for me. They are both doing well so far. I was a little worried about Samantha in Miss Carpenter's class. But it seems to be going well so far.
What else has gone on since I last posted...well, I won $25 at work! We had to do a survey for a University and I was one of the 3 winners chosen...pretty cool right? I was super pumped about that. Also, we got to go and visit my family again for my nephew Aidan's 4th birthday. I love my nephews so much! I wish I could see them every day. That's pretty much it from last time...oh wait, Mike had a birthday. He is now 32. He's taking this one pretty well. For his birthday, we went out with 4 of our friends...Chris, Melissa, Jennifer, and Drew. It was great! That's pretty much it! I'll update again soon...

We have an amazing group of ladies in our congregation at Jasper. Sunday, one of the most awesome ladies, Mrs. Emma King, moved to Florida to be with her daughter. We had a going away party for her last Wednesday, July 7. Here is a collage of some of the most loving and devoted Christian's you will ever meet! I absolutely love each and every one of these people! We will miss Mrs. King so very much. She and Mike were always going at each other. They picked on each other constantly, like they were family. She was always trying out new recipes for us at our fellowship meals. They all were so good...and I'm picky! We know that she will be back to visit us at every opportunity, but she is definitely leaving a hole here!
For the 4th of July, we hung out with our friends Derrick and Kristi and their family. The kids had a great time playing with the fireworks. I didn't really do much with the fireworks...well, I did no fireworks actually. I stayed inside with Kristi's sister Brigitte watching the Jimmy Kimmel special on "Eclipse", which was awesome by the way! I think Mike and the kids had a great time playing with the fireworks, I know I did watching Edward Cullen...love him.
Mike, the kids, and I went to Florida to stay with my sister on July 2. We had an awesome time with the family, as you can see from the collage. The kids absolutely loved it!! We played the WII, went swimming, went fourwheeling, and ate some awesome pizza before crashing for the night. Then on Saturday, we went to my momma's house to play with momma, daddy, and Trey. Such a great weekend! I love my family!

Here are some pictures from Christian's second baseball game. He is learning so much. He is playing coach pitch this year. The coach is really taking the time to teach him the basics. He is doing very well so far. Samantha starts t-ball on Monday. I'll post more pics when I get them!

Well, this has been a busy week! I think we had something to do every single night! Christian and Samantha just started their baseball/t-ball practices. It is Christian's first year playing coach pitch. He is doing very good! I think baseball will be his sport. Samantha is playing t-ball. I haven't had a chance to watch her practice yet, but she is just naturally athletic. I'm sure she'll do great! Mike and the kids are on Spring Break next week. Mike is taking Christian to a Braves game one day. Well, anyway, that was our week!
