Summer is gone!

We had a great summer. We started off with a great vacation to Orlando in June. We visited Legoland and just had a nice relaxing time. We spent lots of Fridays and Saturdays down in Charleston at the beach. We made many trips to the Columbia Zoo. We had a visit from nana and just enjoyed our time as a family! We made a huge change this year, through lots of prays, our two oldest girls started school today. They're attending a great private christian school here and we couldn't be more pleased. They were so excited today and almost couldn't contain their excitement. Jake and I, on the other hand, had a very difficult time with it. I spent most of the night crying, yes, I did. I can't imagine college and Jake spent the day at work moping around. They came home so excited and had such a great time. I'm so thankful! Just so thankful! Our two youngest are still at home, of course. So, they're also transitioning. Harp, kept saying today "I think I hear Tay and Kamy." Made me sad. But its good. We had a great time reading books, playing, shopping and just hanging out together. Well, when you read this, pray for us. Its a big decision and one that we didn't just take lightly.

We're alive and well!

I promise, we're alive and well, just busy! The kids are doing well. We are about to finish up our second year homeschooling. Tay, is technically in first but she's been doing 2nd grade, this year and Kamy, is technically not kindergarten but she's been doing kindergarten all year. We are embarking on a new journey this coming 2014-2015, the two girls will go to a private christian school. We are super excited for them and they are super excited as well. We felt like it was time for them to go and I know they'll love it! Its sad but happy all at the same time! Harper's doing well. He just finished up his first season playing soccer. Kamy, also had her first season. Tay, started in February. So, yes 3 in soccer at the same time, was crazy! But anyway Harp did well. He literally ran around in a little pack with the other kids. It was super cute and made him really tired! Landri, she's getting big! She loves purses, necklaces, bows and anything thats girly! She's started to talk more, saying words or repeating words we say. So cute! We had a great weekend, we spend all day yesterday at the zoo. We hadn't been since our oldest daughter was 2! So, it was fun and everyone was exhausted!

Much updating!

I just laughed out loud, at how long and how much has changed since the last blog post. #1. We've moved! We took a job back in October, in South Carolina. So, we now live in the beautiful state of South Carolina. Jake, is the worship pastor at FBC-Sumter and we are so completely honored! The Lord is good, to us! #2. Landri, turned 1, November 26. I can't believe it! The year went by so fast. We had a small party for her at our new house. We invited several other little 1 year old girls. It was fun! #3. Harper, turned 3, January 5. I can't believe he's 3. He's such a talker, its amazing! He loves, trucks, trains, planes and anything and everything that makes noise. He loves to play outside and to help me cook! He loves eating. #4 and #5 Taylor and Kamdyn, will turn 7 and 5 this year. Taylor, just started soccer. She's in love! Kamdyn, will get her ears pierced for her 5th birthday. I can't believe these girls are growing up! #6. Jake and Lacy, are doing so well! We absolutely love it here. The Lord is so good to us. Jake's started graduate school. Yah! Closer to the Dr! Ha! I just got back into photography after moving. Its my love and passion outside of my family and Jesus. I love seeing people through my lense, how Jesus looks at them. Hopefully, the next blog won't take as long!

Unforgetable Story

On Sunday, I normally do our grocery shopping, after church. So, we (all) went, to whole foods to eat lunch and than I would shop. Normally, we do not ALL go! We got our food and Jake was checking out. I went to get the kids water and sent them to a seat. While I was getting water, a lady stopped me and said "I'm a kindergarten teacher and your kids are so well behaved!" I told her "Wow, that means a lot to me." Not even two seconds later, I turn around to Harper pulling down the fire alarm. Holy cow. I remember trying to put it back up, to see if it would turn off! Whole Foods, on a Sunday it completely packed. At least 500 people in the store. Over the intercom "everyone needs to evacuate, to the nearest exit." People are everywhere, leaving carts, leaving food at check outs....all because of Harper! We walked out of the doors and could hear the fire trucks coming! We literally, didn't stop, just kept walking to the van. I still could not believe it happened. Just a few months ago, Kamdyn knocked over a huge display at the Broward County College Library, which is packed with people. I'm now going to a different library and will have to do the same with Whole Foods!

Here we are, September. I can't believe it. Landri Rose will be 1 in two months. How is that even possible. She's moving chairs around and not sleeping through the night! We accomplished a few milestones this month. Kamy Rue, learned to ride her bike with out training wheels. We took them off in 1 day and she was riding by the end. I can't believe our 4 1/2 year old is riding her bike. She also, started swimming last month. I asked her to take her floats off, she did and swam from one end of the pool to the other! Ta Renee, is getting big! She's tackling 2nd grade work, at the age of a 1st grader. Harper Caid, he's huge, tall! He says 12 word sentences. He looks like his daddy with blonde hair. We as a family, will travel to NC next week! Jake, is laying down his vocals finally, for his second album! Hopefully, it will be out by the end of this year!

Harper 2, will just try not to break or hurt himself while we homeschool. Landri 9mths, will hopefully do something she doesn't do often and nap. We look forward to this year. I'm super excited for our kids.
