The excitement is "palpable" in our house today...SCHOOL'S OUT! :) We have had a really good homeschool year! Corey is officially a sixth grader, Cassie~~a second grader and Cade will be in K4. Corey and Cassie have been very diligent with their school work this year...both making all A's. Cade has alot of fun with preschool. We plan to CELEBRATE this weekend!
THAT means~~SUMMER'S HERE! Summer means sunshine, staying up late, sleeping in, snowcones, homemade ice~cream, picnics at the park, church camp, vacation time, VBS, and just more time to be together with family and friends. (Doesn't that sound like a more relaxed schedule??) :) Hope that EACH one of you will have a fun and BLESSED summer! God is good! (On that note...I want to praise Him with all of my heart for helping my dear Mamaw Smith through her recent hip surgery. I would appreciate your continuing prayers as her surgery was extensive and she faces a challenging recovery period!)

"Moms are just grown up little girls..."

My dear Mom...
(Mamaw Smith and her girls...)

What a fun, beautiful Mother's Day! I loved the saying on the adorable little Boyds bear that Danny gave me..."Moms are just grown up little girls". That is exactly how I feel sometimes...just like a little girl playing house! And just like I loved being a pretend Mommy to my dolls...I love being a Mommy to my three blessings! From the handmade cards, to my special gifts, to the delicious Mother's Day day was perfect!

I also am blessed to have a wonderful Mother and Mother-in-law(and one remaining, dear Grandmother)...precious, godly women who have been awesome Mothers to their families! I have such an incredible heritage to pass on. Hope that you all had a wonderful Mother's Day...either celebrating AS a Mother, or WITH your Mother or just because YOU ARE SPECIAL! :)

The Creation Museum...

What an amazing experience...A church group of about 35 of us were able to take a day trip to this awesome museum. If you haven't had the privilege of going...TRY to in the future! This is a "state~of~the~art" museum that gives glory to our Heavenly Father and His beautiful Creation! We had a great time and made wonderful memories!
