25 1/2 weeks and counting

We are 25 weeks and counting until Harper makes his entrance! I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going. The girls love blowing and kissing on my belly. I know they will make great little mommies!
I've started to home school Taylor, a few days a week. She's 3 1/2 but her brain is like a sponge! A good friend of ours mentioned to us a few months back at how advanced she is compared to the other kids in her Children Equipping Class/Sunday School Class. I want to keep her interest and hoping she will read by 4 or 4 1/2.
Kamdyn, is right behind her. It helps to have an older sister and of course Kam has to compete with Ta! Kam, actually said to me today at the library "no thank you!" I asked her if she wanted to pick out books and that was her answer. Now, Taylor says "no thank you" when she doesn't want something but, I had no idea that Kam was picking up on that.
Jake, is doing well. He will be out of town quite a bit these next few months. He will be traveling to Texas, Alabama, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, Connecticut and Illinois..wow...thats all in October and November! Of course, December and January he will not be traveling!
All in all were doing well!!!

Honoring my dad!

I am thinking of my dad today. He would have been 68! He was born September 2 1942, almost exactly 9 months after Pearl Harbor...yes, his dad was in the military! He was 39 years old when I was born and he robbed the craddle when he married my mom, which was 12 years younger. He has a son who is now 44.
Anyways...I just wanted to say how much I love him and miss him. I think about him daily! He touched a lot of lives in more ways then I will ever know. He loved baseball and was the best short stop I know...he loved the state of South Carolina, called it "God's Country!" He loved his family and he loved his work family (Sunrise.) He loved Jesus and followed him with his heart. If you were privilaged to know him you knew a good man....! I love you, miss you and think of you all the time. Happy Birthday!
