last day of school

Last day of 4th grade and 7th grade

These two are ready for summer! Layla will be moving to 8th grade and Hayden will be a 5th grader.

Hayden is officially an intermediate school student.  He walked the halls of elementary school for the last time.  Ahhhh!  In just a few months he'll be double digits!  10 years old!

We are proud of both of our munchkins and ready for a relaxing summer.

Derby De Mayo

We had the best time celebrating the Kentucky Derby.  I love Derby day and have for years, so we always try to do it up fun.  We finally have our house and love to have parties, so the Derby will be a yearly occurrence!

a middle school play

Layla's theater class performed this morning.  
It was a great performance with a wonderful message.

Layla did great playing the sad girl.

Here is Layla bowing at the end with her "parents."


Layla played the role of a teenage student. ha! In the play, she was in the locker room and one of her best friends took a picture of her in her undies.  The friend then posted it to the Internet.  Tori, Layla's character, was very upset and sad.  Her parents, teachers and principal helped her through this awful time.  Her friend didn't mean harm, but she suffered the consequences of her actions.  

It was a cute production and well acted out by the whole class!  I enjoyed it!

handsome boy!

Look at what I found in Hayden's backpack!  Oh it is just the sweetest thing.  I remember one of these pictures from Kindergarten and now 4th grade.  Goodness I almost can't believe the elementary school days are over in our house.   One more month of school and then we celebrate summer!

Layla has been eyeing this beautiful field of bluebonnets for several weeks.  We didn't want to miss out on the chance to grab a few pictures in the blue beauties!

It's been so chilly lately and I'm thankful for warmer weather and flowers!

Easter 2018

We spent our Easter morning on the golf course.

It was a wonderful day for golf.  The weather was breezy but nice and the sun was shining bright!

The Easter bunny delivered eggs to our backyard.

I'm so obsessed with our backyard view.  If this isn't God's work!!  

Gorgeous clouds on an Easter evening!

We enjoyed a relaxing afternoon on the back porch.  Layla drew pictures, Hayden played with his lizard friend and Gary and I just enjoyed the warm April sunshine!

I played the worst round of golf ever.  I actually quit.  I had high hopes for my Easter golf game, but it was less than pleasant.  It's been awhile since I failed so terribly at golf.  You win some and you lose some.

Happy Easter y'all!!
