102016 – 102216: Homecoming, Camping, Family

We’ve been busier than usual this week. Which says a lot.

The kids still love Tiger.

I forced them to let Tiger pick who he wanted to sit with. And he chose to sit right in between them.

I believe we officially have his fleas gone, thanks Advantage.

And then we had Homecoming stuff. Kailey was in the parade. She wore an adorable little dress. And she’s adorable herself.

After the parade got rained out (so much rain, so many wet kids… it was funny and it wasn’t.) We all met u and ate together. Me and my brothers took a picture because we never do that. I look awful because my hair was still wet from running in the rain to my car.

I even got a picture with my nephew, Bradyn, who hates taking pictures. I had to sneak and get this one.

And then Friday was actual homecoming. So, Kailey and I took some pictures in her pretty dress. Here are some of my favorites.

A true laugh.

I really like this one of her and Nick.

And of course, I had to get one with her and my Luc.

And then homecoming was over and we all took a sigh of relief. Lucy was upset that Kailey didn’t “win” Queen and I had to explain how that worked with Kailey being a junior.

The boys took a camping trip on Friday so Lucy and I had a girls morning. Donuts!

Then we went to Sam’s and Walmart and looked around and had a good ole time. And then we made it home and got unloaded and waited for the guys. They came in and showed us all their pictures.

Didn’t realize how much I’d miss this little guy and his Daddy, too!

Papa J met all the boys and I know Judah loved that.

My little outdoorsman.

And thanks to uncle Sam for taking these. (not the government, our actual uncle Sam…) haha!

And that’s been our week. This week is set up to be MUCH slower paced, and I’ve already gotten done a lot of my grocery shopping, so I’m hoping to get a lot of school done and get caught up on housework from last week. Y’all have a good week – I’m so glad fall is finally here! (Even if it was just for this weekend!)

101316 – 101816: Warm October

It hasn’t felt quite like October yet, given it’s been so dang hot. But we are pushing through with school and regular busy-ness that we always have. 

I’ve started on my scepter and my matching earrings for my costume. I’m super pumped. 

Sam brought over a slack line so we are officially hippies. Hammocks, cats & dogs, pop up, chickens everywhere, slack line. Everyone barefoot. Yeah, were hippies. 

And my beautiful niece got homecoming maid again. Gah, she is gorgeous! I’ve been working on her signs for her parade and homecoming night. I’m so happy for this sweet girl. She deserves it. 

And I’ve had classes, and church events, and a ton of other little things that add to our busy lives and so, I haven’t blogged much. 

And finally… this little gal. 


Looking more and more grown as the days go by. I love watching her grow and learn. I’m so blessed. 

That’s about it for now! 

051515 + 051615: last of the beach days

Our week has come to a close. We are tired and worn out and sun kissed and we got sand in every cranny we can find. We are happy to have had a vacation and we’ve already started planning our next one. We had a great time as always and will definitely come back again, because we love taking our camper places. 

 
Saturday we met up with Mawmaw at the campground we spent our first two nights at.  We swam at the pool and had fun spending time with family. 

Judah was in his happy place. 

  

We enjoyed having a few moments not being crawled on. 

  

We went back to the nature center and Judah found some friends.  


He’s always in the middle of it. And Lucy held a bearded dragon!  

 

I was shocked she held it, much less touched it! 

And then we went back to our camper for the last night. My kids finally laid together nicely and watched their show. 

  

We had a good week, and it’s hard for Wes to come home, but not me so much. I’m ready to get back to my kitchen, and my routine and then to branch out in my new endeavor. Which, I don’t know if I’ve even blogged about it yet. I’ll check and update you if not. 

We’ve had a blast, but Mississippi here we come. No place like home.
