Emery’s personality

June 17, 2015

Love being around this inspirational little person. When asked what makes her smile, we offered up all kinds of suggestions: Isley, ziplining, seeing the sunset, etc.

Her answer, whispered in my ear: “Somebody helping somebody else.”


First Steps!

June 15, 2015

Isley took her first steps June 3. She still prefer crawling and has only taken four to five steps at a time. 

Jonah and I were together when she walked from the ottoman into my arms. We both gasped. Love sharing these exciting moments with my older kids.  


The girls invited several of their friends to join them for a hike at the nature sanctuary in honor of their birthdays. A few couldn’t make it, but the kids had an epic time anyway. They discovered a pathway full of running water due to recent flooding and they all had a ball playing in it! 

Porch Fest

June 14, 2015

The kids and parents loved Porch Fest today. Started out rainy and dreary, ended sunny and bright. 

Ran into our best friends and spent the afternoon listening to good music, enjoying a few drinks and people-watching!


Isley says YES!

This is Isley saying YES to having some of sissy’s birthday cake.  

June 9!  She made her Daddy pull it out because she couldn’t stand the wiggle.  


NFLT Camp Out

June 10, 2015

The kids absolutely love the NFLT camp out. They can run and play all day, bouncing from playmate to a group then back to a different friend. They all seem to thrive on the independence! We love the mix of ages that participate, because the kids are exposed to teenagers who are kind and great role models. Amazing to think that one day they could be those models for a younger crew!
