Our 14th Anniversary - June 24, 2014

Wade and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary on June 24th.  We were babies when we wed and had no idea how hard it would be.  But, here we are 14 years later - praise God!

My love took me to Saint-Emilion, a French restaurant in Fort Worth, for dinner.  It was wonderfully romantic and extremely delicious.  We had the best time together!

Here's to many, many, many more years of navigating life together!

VBS 2014

Our church had Vacation Bible School June 16th-19th this year.  I have helped out with VBS for several years, and it is always a TON of work, but so very worth it!  This year was no different.  I got to teach with two of my sweet friends, two ladies that I didn't know well (but loved!), and a darling youth worker in a Kindergarten class of 19 kiddos.  We had an exhausting/energetic/fun/challenging/exhilarating week.  :)

We prepared and planned for weeks and weeks to make the week meaningful for our kiddos.  I hope that they enjoyed it as much as we did!

My husband, bless his heart, acted as John the Baptist on Day 1.  Mrs. Sally interviewed him, and the kids asked questions as well.  He was a pretty good John the Baptist, if I do say so myself.  ;)
The older that I get, the more that I realize what a tremendous blessing it is to grow up in the Faith.  I am grateful that my earliest memories are of going to VBS, Sunday School, and being taught at home by my parents.  It's all that I have ever known, and I am so incredibly thankful.  I hope and pray that the Lord used VBS to plant little seeds in the hearts of each of these children!

Father's Day - June 16, 2014

On June 16th, we got to celebrate all of the fathers in our lives.  We are so grateful for all of the strong men in our families that lead their families well!  Our boys are very blessed to be surrounded by Godly male role models.  They will be great fathers one day because they have learned from the best!  :)

Of course, we jumped at the chance to celebrate our Daddy!  The boys couldn't wait to give him our gifts. 

After church, we told Wade that we would do whatever he wanted to do.  He opted for going to Hawaiian Falls - we don't call him "Fun Dad" for nothing!  He genuinely wanted to spend the afternoon at the water park.  I love that he is a big kid at heart!  ;) 

Happy Father's Day, Babe!  You are the best of the best, and our boys are so blessed to call you theirs!

Clayton's Baseball Season - Spring 2014

Clayton played for the Texas Rangers this Spring.  He was super excited about being on the Rangers and had a wonderful Coach.  It was a really great season!  Clayton worked hard and made some major improvements.  We were super proud of him for working hard and finishing the season strong.  The team finished 3rd in the rankings, which the boys were thrilled about.  What a fun season!

Clayton hit a double in the game on March 29th.  He was sooo excited!

That hit earned him the game ball.  :)

Clayton played catcher a couple of times, and loved it.

Coach Justin was an awesome coach!  Clayton learned so much from him.  He really invested in these kids and wanted to help them improve.  It was not uncommon at all for him to text Wade at 10:00 at night about something that he had thought of that may help Clayton.  Such a nice guy!
We are so proud of our boy and his team!  Spring 2014 was another successful season.  :)
