There is just no way around it

Hello friends. I have been a blog slacker and there just is no way around it.  I had ideas I wanted to blog but the longer I waited, the more I felt I needed to explain my absence. My last post was way back in January! Thankfully the only explanation is that life has been happening and it’s been pretty darned good. I’ve been keeping up with monthly head shots, here’s a look at us in the first half of this year!


What has happened since January? We had snow in central alabama. We loved playing in it. It was amazing. and cold. and lasted a few days so we could get out and play, come in and thaw out and then go back out again.

The boys joined scouting. Jalen is a boy scout and Jordan is a cub scout. We have gone camping both with a tent and in cabins.

The boys have both finished off their first year in public school after three years of homeschooling. Both boys did really well and were on the honor roll.

Jordan also won his class spelling bee, was the 3rd grade spelling bee winner for his school and went to the county spelling bee!

We have made lots of friends in our church and are loving all of the different groups we are joining.


We ordered seeds from and planted a garden. IMG_2730 IMG_3810 IMG_4651 IMG_4395 IMG_4388 IMG_4315 IMG_5557 IMG_5558 IMG_5426 IMG_5425

I started watching my diet and exercising which lead everyone in the family to eating healthier and moving more.

We ordered baby chicks through the mail. They were super cute. They grew up. We have lots of chickens.

We had a few calves that would bust out of the pasture across the street and nicknamed them #calfhoudini.

Jordan marched in the Slapout parade that welcomed home Jess Meuse from American Idol.

Jalen is officially taller than me. He grew his hair out for about a year and then cut it right before going off to boy scout camp. He just learned how to drive the tractor and starts 9th grade in a month.


We are settling into our new home quite well.
