Brian has helped coach Micah's team since he first starting playing ball when he was only 3 years old. Again, I just want to put it in writing and say how thankful I am that my children have such a wonderful Daddy that invests so much time and love into their lives.
I also really like the fact that I always get to capture these 'too cute for words' Father/Son pictures in their matching uniforms! :)
Micah on the pitcher's mound and Brandon on third base are "baseball ready".

The original colors were dark brown siding, dark brown trim, and dark brown doors.
We are painting the siding tan, trim and porch white, and doors black. We are also putting up some black shutters to match the doors. I am hoping and praying that it all comes together and looks the way I think it will in my mind. Because, quite frankly, whatever it ends up looking like is just the way it is going to have to stay for a VERY LONG TIME. We are only crazy enough to do this ONCE.
And yes.... that is yours truly up on the roof painting the chimney.
Can I tell you, it is not nearly as hard to get ON a roof as it is to get OFF a roof.
I seriously thought Brian was going to have to call the fire department to get me down. I really think I may have had my first panic attack trying to maneuver back onto that silly ladder.
Can I also tell all my local friends that are oh so friendly to PLEASE STOP HONKING THEIR HORNS when they drive by while we are on the ladder or roof. We love you all dearly, but
seriously people, are you trying to make us fall?

We put on several camps at our church each summer. One of my very favorites is the Camp Quarternote ~ Music and Drama Camp. The kids come to camp Monday through Friday and learn the songs, speaking parts, and choreography to an entire play. Then, on Sunday night, they perform it for all of their friends and family. It is a huge undertaking and takes me about 5 months to learn all the songs that the kids learn in less than 5 days! Each year I am biting my nails, worried about whether or not we will be able to 'pull it off'. But each year, the kids totally amaze me and I come to the conclusion that it is TOTALLY worth it in the end!
Savanna was all smiles as one of my Money Dancers in the song 'Money and Fame'.
Here's my two 'official' children right before the play.
This is the most talented group of kiddos you could ever wish for!
Allison and Haley were the MRO ~ Motor Racing Outreach Team who shared the gospel with Hotrod Hansen.
Mallory, Savanna, Hadley, and Zoe were the "Money and Fame" dancers with a throw back to the 1930's.
We had our very own boy band of Kindergartners who helped us jam out on "I've Got the Power of God Living in Me"
Morgan, Hannah, and Jenna had big speaking parts as part of the Pit Crew.
