Moody Gardens, Iceland & Fishing

Fishing was fun this year for the guys.  It was so windy!  I bought a charter boat ride for the guys via Galveston Fishing Charter Co.

Captain Saul was amazing and Silas…

Clayton C. Anderson and NASA

To Clayton:  Thank you.  You’ll never understand the passion you put behind our son.  He’s a little guy who strives for attention and sometimes, self-worth.  He wants so much to find his place in this world and I’ve always been convinced God has a special task for him.  I pray the fire you lit in him stays for the…

When you finally realize it works…

As a person who is now getting the point of burying my grandparents and other relatives I see starting to get older, I’m realizing how important these memories are.  Pictures can’t be replaced.  They tell a story.  Bad or good, they show us for what we were at a certain point in time and they are to serve as a marker…a kind of…

Thanksgiving: Fear of Food!

If you’re someone who doesn’t like bread that tastes like you’re pretty much eating something straight out of the field, you won’t like this bread.  But, if you love that wheaty earthy (find other words that end in ‘y’), then you will love…

Treading Water

You ever had those moments where you look at your schedule and wonder how in the world you’re making it all fit?  Yeah, me too. I recently read a book (well, morel like listened to an audio book, because I don’t have time to just ‘sit and read’) that talked about how we’ll never have […]

Graduation, Rainbows, and Pool Time!

Well, the last few weeks have been a catch up game!  A couple of weeks ago, we decided to start working on the pool.  We haven’t done much with it in the last couple of years since Elysha broke her leg and then we tried to get it done one year and got a massive […]

Memorial Day 2019

Memorial Day, 2019! One of the things we’ve started doing less of around Memorial Day is attending the typical BBQ festivities and using this holiday as an extra sleep in day.  We’ve been working pretty diligently to instill a sense of gratitude for what Armed Forces have done for us and this is another holiday […]

End of School!

It’s summertime y’all!  Schools out and I’ve never been happier! (Well, okay, maybe I’ve been happier, but this year was PHEW!) Our little guy is done with 2nd grade and managed over the year to read 124 books!  He’s so proud of his accomplishment that he put the Accelerated Reader paper on his desk in […]

Catching up!

Okay, so let’s just admit it.  I’m super bad at making time for me – and this blog.  But, ‘April 1 resolutions’ anyone?  I mean, am I joking with myself? So, catching up! Right before Spring Break, the kids had a great week planned at school.  It had been pretty chilly and I was a […]

All things lately…

I’ve got a secret to share with you.  Ready?  I know, it’s gonna be a shocker, but I think we might want to get this out of the way – probably before we go much further… I know, just let that sink in for a few minutes.  You’ll be okay.  So what’s brought me to […]
