Last Monday, I was about to leave work and head home. I got a voicemail and some texts from Drew saying that his stomach was hurting. He had talked to several friends at school and googled it. He was sure he had appendicitis. I called his pediatrician. He called me back on my drive home,… Read More »
Y’all I’m a bit aggravated. Fall is always a busy time in my household, but this year has been craaaaa-zy! I’m just trying to keep my head above water. October is here and September was a breeze compared to how busy I am now. Planning Drew’s Eagle Court of Honor, taking pictures for Auburn Thunder… Read More »
Now that we’re in our 2nd full week of summer, I thought I’d better go ahead and post my Summer Goal Bucket List
This month I was happy about: a change that’s coming soon! This month I was sad about: just really missing my Dad these days. Something I accomplished this month was: not much of anything…or at least that I can remember.
Drew had the opportunity back when he was 9 to start playing mid-season for Auburn Thunder Travel Soccer. It’s like Deja Vu…Just like big brother, Alex has had the same opportunity. The league decided to open up tryouts in January and Alex decided to give it shot. He made it, so here we are again!… Read More »
I snapped a few shots of my excited Drew after he was finally able to get his driver’s license today. He turned 16 a week and a half ago, but was waiting on the “Gold” card from the state. He took driver’s ed the 2nd 9 weeks and at the end of the class, which… Read More »
Dear Drew, Man, you’ve been gone just over 2 weeks now. I’ve missed you like crazy! It was kinda funny, the Thursday before you left, that evening, I was missing you already and you hadn’t even left yet. Before I left that afternoon to go to work, you and I laid across the bed and… Read More »
So proud of Drew’s JV soccer team this year. 63 goals scored and only 8 allowed the whole season. Fantastic players, wonderful parents, and great coaches. Coaches Carey and Mark Not sure what this face is… The team And I forgot to show yall this… Drew is listed in our local newspaper for scoring a… Read More »
Christmas Day was busy. We started off with homemade sausage balls and apple strudals. Then Rob and I looked in our stockings and the boys showed us what they had in their stockings, since that’s the one thing they can look at before Rob and I get up. Then the obligatory pics in front of… Read More »
Thursday afternoon Alex’s Cub Scouts went to church to help make up boxes for the food pantry. Our church provides food for those that are need every Friday and they make up all the boxes on Thursdays. He enjoyed being able to help others. After that we went to the hospital because his class collected… Read More »
How can you not love Lincoln Logs?
Here’s a couple collages with just a few pics from Drew’s game and Alex’s Game. They played great and pulled out big wins! See all the pics from their games HERE.
As if it weren’t difficult enough coming back from a week long vacation. Getting back to reality after a week away is just down right hard. We’ve also had (one or more) furry little creatures inhabit our home while we were away. A water leak in the kitchen, which has now caused damage. To-do-lists piled… Read More »
Last Friday Alex’s Cub Scout Den met up at the Auburn University fisheries for a Den Meeting to complete the requirements for the Fishing Belt Loop. Drew caught 2 fish. And so did Alex. There were a couple pretty large fish caught. All fish were thrown back in after the hooks were removed. See more… Read More »
Drew got his braces today! He just got the top set today along with ‘stuff’ on the bottom teeth (which you can’t see unless he opens his mouth) so that his mouth can’t close all the way, which allows room for the adjustments to take place. Dr. T says that he’s trying to correct the… Read More »
Here’s a pic of the boys on our Trick or Treating night, which was moved to Thursday due to football. Yah, Football reigns here, so much they move Halloween to a school night! Friday night we went to campus for the Annual Pumpkin Carving
Today was the 1st day of school for the 2009-2010 school year. Drew’s going into 6th grade, which means moving up to middle school. Alex is going to Kindergarten! One good thing out of being unemployed right now is that I got to take Alex to his first day of school ever.
Today I took Drew to the dr. for a check up for boy scout camp that he’ll be attending in a couple weeks. We saw a new doctor, Dr. M@tt C@rter, who was super nice. Drew checked out great, but to my surprise he had to get 2 shots. No big deal or so we… Read More »
Today we got to go to the AU airport. Alex got to sit in an older Cessna, which the university owns a slew of them. They are used for the Aviation School at Auburn. Living in Auburn for 13 years, you would think I’ve had an opportunity to go the airport, but have never had… Read More »
Drew, who now wants to be called Lil’ Man, has for the longest time wanted a garden. Well with all the woods in our backyard it doesn’t really lend itself to that. I’ve seen how tomatoes grow really well upside down. And instead of spending $20 on the Topsy Tomato planter we decided to make… Read More »
