Back to School Date with Jovie!

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

I realized I hadn't posted about Jovie's back to school date yet, which was on the boys' first day of school, August 22. Sorry JoJo!

She had waited so patiently for her back to school date with mommy! She is such a treasure, and although we spend lots of 1 on 1 one time together while the boys are in school, this was special because she got to chose what we did (other than the grocery pick up- thanks again Walmart for making that such a quick and easy process!) she chose lunch at Anna’s House for her favorite grilled chicken breast with A-1, and then going thrift shopping!

Jovie's First Day of Preschool!

Thursday, September 13, 2018

Jovie had her first day of preschool September 5! 
After watching her brothers have so much fun, she was more than ready for her turn with Mrs. Parrott! 
It’s always hard to “let go” of our kids and release them into the care of others, but I’m so thankful to know she’s in amazing hands, being loved on and adored while she’s there! What a gift! 
Let your light shine, beauty girl! You are God’s treasured possession, may you see yourself in that same confidence that comes only from Him!

Labor Day Weekend Camping Trip

Wednesday, September 12, 2018

We spent Labor Day weekend having one last hurrah camping! 
We stayed at Oak Grove in our own home town.

We got to the campground Thursday evening after Sadler's soccer practice, got set up and had some time for a quick evening swim and some games in the camper before bedtime.



He's my kind of camper, reading with a snack :)

 Robb had to work Friday, so we invited our friends, the Meiste's, to stay for the day and the guys came at night for a cookout!


Saturday morning we snuck in a quick bike ride, climb up Mt. Pisgah, and some fun on the beach playground before the rain came!

But first pancakes!










It rained for the majority of the afternoon, but we didn't let that stop our fun!





We enjoyed a hot dog roast thanks to Oak Grove


Saturday night we took a bike ride (9 miles round trip) to get ice cream! 
The kids did awesome!


You can tell who carried the backpack by the sweaty outline on Robb's shirt! Ha!

Sunday was a great beach day! So thankful we got to do that in!







We took an evening bike ride to grab pizza and have a picnic on the channel




We ended our night with a bonfire with the Perdok family. 

Monday morning we packed up the camper and headed to the annual Labor Day Truck Parade!


We had a great weekend! So thankful!

First Day of School 2018

Thursday, August 23, 2018

These boys were off to 4th and 2nd grade August 22!

Lord, give them eyes to see the needs of others around them, hearts to know your deep love for them, courage to stand up for what’s right, minds to learn all that’s required of them, and the knowledge of Your presence always with them!






Grayden and Mrs. Glupker

I wasn't able to grab a picture of Sadler with Mrs. Schreur, unfortunately, but I'm sure Sadler's fine with that :)  

A special after school snack for the first day! 


They both had great days! We are anticipating wonderful years for them both!

Back to School Date with Sadler

Monday, August 20, 2018

 Sadler and I had such a great time on our mommy/son “back to school date”! After much consideration, he chose dinner at McD’s where he ordered nuggets AND a cheeseburger and then bounced around at Rebounderz - we had a blast! 
My favorite time though was talking together on the ride there. He told me he “wants to have 10 kids; 5 boys and then 5 girls, and the first two will be named Chevy and Colt.” And that he “doesn’t want to live to be 100 because he can’t wait to find out if they’re will be baseball in Heaven”! 
I loved our time together!

Back to School Date with Grayden

Gray’s chose Panera Bread and watching Hotel Transylvania for his back to school date! He was such a gentleman; he told me I looked beautiful, opened doors for me and held my hand (although the 9 year old boy in him still came out when it came to table manners, ha! #workingonthat!) 
He told me he wants to go on mission trips when he's older to build wells for people so they don't get dehydrated! 
He loved pointing out every cool car he saw!

You’re gonna rock 4th Grade next week bud! I loved spending time with on our dateE
