How cute is this?!

Awww...isn't he something? Cute, cute, cute!! :)

It Starts....

We are in our school groove and enjoying our days. :)








Whee....

So here on the mountaintop we have some exciting news! All the little's (except Sam, of course) no longer need training wheels! Honestly, this is amazingly wonderful news on so many levels. My sweet Kyalynn, just look at the joy in her face. Now imagine her little voice saying over and over and over again, "look mommy,  I doing it" "great job, you did it!", "I riding bike mommy" and "look, look at me!"    :) So precious! Connor picked it up a while back,  then Nolan decided he wanted his trainers off and of course then everyone wanted theirs off too. LOL! I tried and tried to teach the girls but they just weren't getting it. Then one day as I was reading to some of them outside Gabriella started yelling and here she was riding the bike!! Unfortunately, she isn't the safest one on the block. LOL! She's run into the picnic table, the side of the shed, the front post, and on and on but she is much better now. Thank God! :) Kyalynn …

*Sigh*....

I know, I know, I've been a really bad blogger lately. I'm sorry...really! It's not that I don't have lots of stories to share and pictures to post, it's just that I can't seem to find the time to do them justice. I promise to try harder. :) Actually, I write some really great blog posts as I'm running but when I sit in front of the computer there's literally nothing there! LOL! The weekend's coming, right?! Who knows what day today is. LOL! 

And just for a laugh I thought I'd share some of our redneck versions of fun....

A wheelbarrow sandbox...:)

Drive in movies in our yard....:)

Don't be jealous  LOL!!! 


Great Interview...

Unfortunately, I haven't seen any of the Olympics this time. :(  Here I thought I'd be able to enjoy some of it through the internet but no such luck. Anyhow, I just watched this video of Ryan Hall and I was just so blessed by his perspective that I thought you needed to be blessed too! :) Enjoy!!Watch the latest video at <a href="http://video.foxnews.com">video.foxnews.com</a>

So, Word Is....

That this attractive soldier boy will be heading to the other side of the world. :(    He will finish up his job training in Oklahoma, come home for a week and then head to Korea for a year and a half! Gosh, doesn't God have such a sense of humor? Who knew that all those years ago when we were studying Korean culture and Ryan was learning the Korean language that someday it would come so in handy?! Oh that's right, God did! LOL!

Although we have 3 Korean beauties we never traveled there. They were all escorted to us. I have tried to tell Sean this would be a great opportunity for us to move to Korea for a year and teach English....the little's would see their home country and Ryan could visit us. But alas, my man is NOT buying it. :) I'm already praying that somehow, someway, we can figure out how to visit him before he heads back to the States.

My heart breaks at the long separation ahead but I know God has a plan for Ryan and it's good.....very good! So we rest…

Man Love...

Sean is my biggest fan and encourager. He surprised me with a Garmin watch for running for Mother's Day and just this weekend he surprised me with an Ipod Shuffle. I have been trying to get  Ryan's old Ipod to work but have not been successful. So, my man got me my very own and the best part about it is....it's GREEN! My favorite color. :)   The watch he bought me is green too! See...I told ya he loves me! :)  When I'm out running in the mornings he always watches for me to make sure I'm safe and no wild animals have got me. LOL! I am so very, very blessed to have this man by my side. 
If I could only give 2 words to describe him I'd choose strong and solid. He is made of tough stuff and is all man but boy he is so tender and loving with his family too. He is solid in every way possible. He is solid in his faith (so very very important!) solid in his work ethics, solid in his commitments, solid in his word and solid in his love for us. God couldn't have pi…

Loving The Bad Man...

This is a new movie coming out.  I personally love movies, books, songs that challenge me. For me, it's all about growing and becoming all He created me to be. Can't do that living in a box! :) So...this movie looks like a great "out of the box" type of movie. I can't wait to see it!!  Thanks Christine for sharing it!!
