 He wanted to laser tag for his birthday so he and his good bud Mile and their siblings went at it for the Friday evening and then we ate some pizza.



You will always be our little blonde hair blue eyed miracle that God blessed us with Ethan! We love you and hope you had a special birthday!

7 years and a field trip

It happened that Ethan's 1st grade class field trip to the pumpkin patch and Louisburg Cider Mill was on his 7th birthday. For a 7 year old that is fantastic news! A friend and i tagged along behind the bus and spent the day with our first graders.



Ethan's class...


having lunch on the hay stack


and then doing what just comes naturally to every 7 year old...


They loaded up the bus again and headed to the cider mill. I have never been there so i enjoyed the little tour and then i indulged in not 1 but two cider slushies! Oh my word, if you have never had one you have got to try one....SO good!


Happy 7th birthday Ethan!!

Red Barn Farm

In October Raegan's kindergarten class visited the Red Barn Farm in Weston. I got to tag along with her class on the bus. It was a nice warmer day in Oct. Perfect weather for the pumpkin patch!







 Raegan picked a special little pumpkin and if you saw my facebook status was distraught when the pumpkin started rotting and finally was thrown away by Daddy! Because Mommy didn't have the heart. The tears and the watching her go out and write one more little heart on her pumpkin made me decide i would keep her pumpkin there till spring if that is what it took.

Cross country 2012

Trey and Avery each participated in cross country this fall. Avery was very much opposed to doing cross country going into school but i convinced her to give it a try and she ended up loving it and can't wait till track season. My "i do not like to run" little girl has ended up actually enjoying running much to her momma's delight!

6th grade girls lined up to run...



 coming in to the finish line. Finished her mile in 7:26 impressing her Dad and Mom!


I just realized that these photos are all mixed up so this is her second meet ready to run below...

Very proud of both Trey and Avery and the hard work they put in. Running every day after school and running hard and doing their best on race days! Great job guys! You should be proud of yourselves!
