Catfist Tournament

The boys love to fish so, when we heard that there was a catfish tournament at Manlove Park we had to enroll them. It was from 7p to 2am. Scott and Skyler stayed there the whole time. Alex and I stayed for a while. The boys didn't catch any fish but, we had a good time just talking and enjoy the quite country night by the lake.

Skyler & Scott

He Got One

Well, he finally got one. There is a funny story about this..every time before Scott took Skyler hunting... me being the animal lover that I am would pray for them to safe and that all the animals would be safe and that Skyler wouldn't get know that I should be supportive and I am ... I am just weird that way I guess. Well, on this particular day Scott and Skyler went hunting on a whim and I had no idea that they where going and I didn't say my little hunting prayer. So, on that day Skyler finally got one. When they came home and Skyler came to me with his huge grin on his face...I knew before he opened his mouth to talk what had happened. He said, "you must of forgot to pray because I got one." I responded that "your right. Because you both went and didn't tell me." He laughed saying "that was the point."

First Day Of School 2009

The day was August 17th and it was the first day. The boys were nervous and excited all at the same time. I remember those days not to long, for our boys it was a new chapter in their lives, a new school, making new friends and so much more. Their first day went great and glad to say that all is still going good st school.

Alex at he breastfast time. He wouldn't let me get a pic of him so I had to sneak one.

Hunting Adventures

I am not a fan of hunting but the things you do for your kids. This was the the morning of the first hunting outing for Scott and Skyler this year. Skyler was so happy and excited. Scott and Skyler didn't get anything though. Skyler was pretty disappointed. I on the other hand was pleased with the results. I told Skyler that I was praying that he wouldn't get anything and he was laughing at me saying "well, sounds like someone get their prayers answered." So, every time that they gone since Skyler is asking if I prayed. Of course, I said "I pray everyday." LOL.

Ready to Go

Scott had his weekly Bible class and after the class got some wonderful, unexpected news for our Minister. Our Minister, John told Scott that he was ready to begin his Evangelism preaching and that the church was going to be sending him out to revivals this summer!! Scott and I are so excited. This has been Scott's calling for a long time and to finally see it happen is wonderful.

Trip to WPAF Museum

Last Saturday, Scott, myself and my mom along with my grandpa went to the Air Force museum in Dayton Ohio. We had a really good time. It was nice change. Something that we needed, to get a way for the day along with my mom and grandpa. To be honest not my idea of a outing but, my grandpa and mom has been wanting to go for a while. My mind was soon changed as I got there. I found myself in amazement and in awe at all of the aircraft that was there. I was drawn in at all the history that was there and all the stories beaning told and to see it all up close and personal it was really cool. I learned alot that day about myself, that is ok to try new things out of my comfort zone and might love it and how much I love what so many have done for me. At one point a (around my grandpa's age) retired Air Force pilot came over and shook my grandpa's hand and said "thank you" for your service and in return my grandpa said the same. My grandpa wasn't in the Air Force but in the army during WW II. My eyes began to swell up with a few tears. It was a great thing to see and hear two men, strangers but yet bonded in a way that I will never know give thanks to each other. I came I realized that this museum was not just place to go a see the planes but, a place to honor all the people that served our country.

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,' I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong. I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.
When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.. I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect, My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.
When I say.... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain... I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou, I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!
Pretty is as Pretty does... But beautiful is just plain beautiful!

To The Races

Scott and I went to the BMX races at Kettering, Ohio on Sunday to see our nephew and niece race. We had a great time and the kids did good too. Katelyn got a third place finish and it was her first time racing! She took a bad fall and ate some dirt in the first go around but, she got right back up and went again. Shane got a second place win. We are so proud of them.

Memorial Weekend

We had Jason, Meg and Shy along with Chase, Cassie and Joe over for just a little pizza from a local place that we love and then we had a bonfire and roasted marshmallow and had some smores. We had a great time a we laughed our butts off. We always do when we all get together. It was a wonderful night. I am so happy that we can have nights out like this because we are free thanks the all the brave men and women that have and are fighting for us. God Bless 'em.

Let's Go Out to the Ball Game!

Scott and his long time friend, Jason (Whopper) from Ohio went to a Reds game. He had so much fun. Scott LOVES the Reds. I mean he is a little addicted. We watch just about every game and if we are on the road...yes, we listen to it on the radio and if we are at someone house he will ask to turn the game on. Not joking. He has been a fan since he was a child. We went to a game last season in the fall and I had a great time but, I think that it is good for him to go out with his buddies. He had really good seats, six rows up from the field by the Reds dugout. It was his boys day out day. Here are just a few pics that he took from the game. I have bad news though...the Reds lost.

Finally Done!!

After a long and trying year we are finally licensed!! I am sooo excited and glad to be done. We got of of our papers sent to Fayette Co DCS instead of Hancock Co DCS. Which was a great idea because Fayette Co DCS didn't waste no time getting it done. We got approved for 4 children. Now, we can begin to grow our family. Praise God and I give Him all the Glory!!

Happy Mother's Day

This year on Mother's Day we went to Ohio and visited with Scott's family. It was a good day. We got to see the nephews, Shane and Spencer (Katelyn our niece was at her dad's). We don't get to see any of Scott's family that often because they live so far away. So, when ever we can we try to go.
