My Parents’ Visit, part two

June 27th-28th, 2015 We spent the last days of my parents visit in the pool and making a trip to one of our old stomping grounds, the Kemah Boardwalk.  The time with them went too quickly, as it usually does, but we made the most of it and have the memories to hold on to.  Until the next time. The gator always cracks me up. As does the boy on top of it. I don’t think Adam will be able to have a quiet relaxing swim with these 3 boys all over him. And he wouldn’t have it any other way. Ah, the minion goggles.  They were a hit with the kids, and the adults. Good ole’...

My Parents’ Visit, part one

June 22nd- 26th, 2015 My parents were here for a little over a week.  We enjoyed every minute!  Mom and I did a little shopping, the boys (all but Caleb) played a round of golf,  we played some fun games here at home, enjoyed the afternoon at the theater, toured the new ExxonMobil Campus, visited the Kemah boardwalk, and did A LOT of swimming! Jonah introduced grandpa to The Laser Game. Most of our time was spent in the pool.  We are so thankful to have it for this Houston heat! Caleb and grandpa had a little game going the entire week. Caleb would try and jump off the wall without...

Father’s Day, 2015

This year’s game: The Newlywed Game. I had to take advantage of our additional players! The newlywed game...

Stormy Days

June 16th, 2015 We just returned home from my Annie’s funeral.  We all knew the day was coming but it came a lot sooner than I expected.  In late April/Early May I felt the Lord really pulling on my heart; telling me to get back to St. Louis.  Adam was already planning on going up to do a service project with Sumner.  Jonah, Caleb, and I decided to join them for the drive as I decided that I needed to obey God’s calling.  I am so thankful that I did.  This visit to St. Louis would be the last time I saw my Annie.  I was able to spend precious time with her and my grandpa...
