The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

Just couldnt
get enough of the heat...

Um ... I meant couldnt escape the heat!!!

Saturday Sam and his Red Sox team had their first travel ball experience. It was an ALL day tournament in Ardmore!! Thankful for some clouds and overcast that day but still it was Oh SO H-O-T!! I was so excited while I was there to see Joy as she was getting to enjoy a day full of H-O-T baseball too!! Fun times!! Our boys won 2 out of 4 games which I thought was great considering the 2 we lost were to teams made up of mostly 7 year olds. It was a learning experience for a sure. I have to say even though it was so terribly hot, had a great time watching them play their hearts out. They had never played a day full of ball like that.

do they look just a little hot to you?!?!

Sunday we hit the Freedom Fest at Flint River Baptist Church and had a great time. You woulda thought we had enough of the heat on Sat. but no we were back out in it again and had a blast!!

Fun Times Indeed!!

how sweet are they hanging out together

ended the weekend with fireworks

What a month!!!

My have we been busy around here!! The month of June has been jam packed full!! It started by returning from the camp...swimming lessons...and just finishing up basketball camp today not to leave out baseball practices for travel ball this summer.... whew, that just makes me tired typing it all out. Sam has had a blast though, fun times & great memories with friends!! This is the first year has attended any type of sports camps and he has LOVED it!! not to mention learned alot as well. Swimming lessons are going great, thinking he really might get it this year, (thanks Amy for recommending the YMCA, it has been a great experience) Looking forward to July and the fact that it will be a little more slow paced including some sleeping in, poolside with friends, trip to ATL for some Braves baseball and of course looking forward to watchin our little RED SOX play some smokin HOT baseball, cause its definitely been HOT around here!!
Hope all of you are having great summers with your families!! It'll be over before ya know it and that school bell will be ringing :(

I could not be more thankful for the husband God has given me and for the father he is to Sam!! I am truly blessed to have him!! We spent Fathers day first by Chad opening his presents Sam picked out (all had to do with baseball, imagine that), we had lunch at Chad's favorite... Carrabba's, visited with his parents and then with mine. It was a great day spent together!! We Love You Chad, hope you had a GREAT Fathers Day!! You are the best daddy Sam could ever have!!

~Thankful for Our Time at the Beach~

We had the most AmAzInG time at the beach over the Memorial holiday. We were able to stay 5 days and it was just what we needed at just the right time. I am so saddened at what is happening down there now with the oil spill. It has been our yearly vacation spot forever and to think that it may mess things up for years to come breaks my heart. I am so thankful we were able to enjoy it this year before things got so bad. Praying for all of those who will be so severely affected by all of this, the ones who live down there, the ones who's livelihood depends on it....

Here are some pics I did while there, will share our more candid moments later. We had a GREAT time =)
