Take me Out to the Ball Game
















Last night was Chris' Annual Company Picnic at the Old Ball Game!  We enjoyed an evening with the Durham Bulls.  The kids enjoyed shelling and eating peanuts, trying to catch foul balls, and fireworks at the end.  The kids also enjoyed talking to the guys from the Red Socks.  Grace even got a game ball from one of the guys as he caught it himself, and she had been talking the guys ears off all night. (They kept saying how cute our kids were, Mom has to agree.)

Visit to PA



We spent Memorial Day weekend in PA.  And I forgot to use my new camera.  Well, all except my first stop.  I got a couple of GREAT shots of Andrea and Noah.   Such a cute baby and Andrea is a great mama!  Now, I can't wait for our new bundle to be born!

Our Anniversary


Today is Chris and My Anniversary. It's been 8 years! This photo was taken of Chris and myself this past Lord's Day.

Recital




Here are a few of the photos of Abi's piano recital photos. No flashes were allowed during the performance. Here are a couple of pictures taken right before the recital of Abi and with her piano teacher.

Butterfly




This butterfly just loved Abi. It kept attaching itself to her. Was it the butterflies on her jacket? Or did it know just how sweet she is?

Daddy's Coming Home Today!!!

Chris has been traveling this week and everyone is excited that he will be coming home tonight. Last night we had a really bad thunder storm, I think a tree was hit in our back woods. It was so loud. It's times like that I appreciate a man in the house. Not that I was scared, but I just kept thinking... What am I going to do if a tree falls on our house? Anyways, we are all looking forwards to him coming home tonight.

Last night, before the storm. Abi had another soccer game. She is playing so well this year. She really makes me proud! Way to go Abi!!!

This morning, after a little schooling, we will be going to a homeschool event in Holly Springs. Abi is the only one old enough, so the rest of us will be hanging out at the Library. Then I wanted to go strawberry picking, but with the rain we had, I'm not sure what kind of shape those strawberries might be in.

Sorry their hasn't been a steady flow of pictures, but I mostly have Soccer and T-ball photos and they are all starting to look the same. I guess I could take a photo of my growing belly. It's very noticeable these days. I'm now going to the doctor every two weeks. And the count down is on.

The kids are excited to go swimming. They keep asking when the pool opens. Some of the clubs around here have already opened. I'm not sure when ours opens. But I'm sure I'll have swimming photos when it does. I guess I need to do some swim suit shopping. I know we will be spending a lot of time at the pool this summer. Another activity our kids LOVE! Although our new association pool is very small. Our family might excess maxium number of swimmers. LOL!

Well, that's all for now. Have a blessed day!

Picture People- New Curriculum

Yesterday I took the kids to the picture people to get their pictures taken. I can't load them. Bummer.

We've been busy here. I got our new curriculum for next fall and have been having fun checking it out. It looks excellent. Bible, History, Latin, Math, Handwriting, Spelling, Grammar, and Literature. Oh, and who can forget. I bought a very expensive Art curriculum since that is the joy of our children. Also, Abi will also continue to take piano.

Speaking of piano, Abi will be having another recital in a week and half. Hopefully I can video tape her playing and upload it.

Have a great day!
