Wow, hard to believe it's already almost the middle of August! I am up way too late, organizing papers and ordering my homeschool books... Life this year has been busy, more ups than downs, and God has been good, as always!

Luke is six and has just recently lost his 2nd tooth. He is going into first grade and loves sports! I love his first born spirit as he tries to keep the other two in line!

Zachary is five and is my cuddler! No teeth lost but he is hoping they get loose soon, so he can be like his big brother! He is a great student at Tucker Christian Academy and loves to color. He claims he is going to be an artist!

Grayson. Oh, Grayson. He is my 'you'll reap what you sow' kid, or so I hear :) He is three now and is a big boy, not a baby, he tells me. He is great at making messes, especially when eating, but loves his Momma and I love him!

I hope to be a bit more faithful at blogging for memories and sharing God's goodness in our lives! I enjoyed my time away from blogging while I was getting more important things done at home and for our family. So a big hello to my faithful followers and may God bless you all!  Love, Mary

Saw this quote today

Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil - it has no point

Can you guess where I may be? What I may be doing? One clue is I'm NOT doing laundry every day! Yay!!

Double Trouble

Were you expecting a picture of Luke and Zach?? :) NOPE! It's ME! And Luke, of course!

This pic was taken back in May for our Mother's Day lunch. We made some fun memories that day!

Luke's First Day of School

My baby is in school! Homeschool, that is!
I love his cheesy grin :)

Love his smile...

He was so proud to hold this chalkboard!

He thought it was SO neat that we were outside taking pictures while
brothers were taking naps! We made some great memories this day!

I love you baby boy

Aunt Dee Dee Love

So, tonight, I was getting the boys ready for bed and all the while talking about God, the Bible verses we are learning in Sunday School, and such the like. We always kiss and hug the boys goodnight and tonight, as I leaned down to Zach, I said "Goodnight, Zach, I love you. And think of Jesus". He replied, "I will but I want to think of Aunt Dee Dee too!"

He has a tender heart for his Aunt Dee Dee! :) (love you, Dee!)

And, as off to bed I go myself, I will leave you with...

Think of Jesus

Mid-summer update!

Wow - this year has been SO busy already! I wish I could blog every day to remember the little ins and outs of my day but time gets away too often. God is good and keeping us healthy and safe!

Here are three reasons why I'm very busy and not blogging much! Being a mom to these three is so rewarding and I'm so thankful for them! We are enjoying every minute of this summer!

Why, Why, Why...

thought these were funny!

Why, Why, Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting weak?

Why do banks charge a fee due to insufficient funds when they already know you're broke?

Why is it that when someone tells you that there are one billion stars in the universe, you believe them but, if they tell you there is wet paint, you have to touch it to check?

Why do they use sterilized needles for lethal injections?

Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?

Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?

Why did Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Whose cruel idea was it to put an "s" in the word "lisp"?

Why is it that, no matter what color bubble bath you use, the bubbles are always white?

Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

Why do people run over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?

Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the first end you try?

How do those dead bugs get into enclosed light fixtures?

Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?

Why, in winter, do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?
