I Know….I Know

I know….it has been a loooooooooong time since I have posted.  Honestly, I have been lazy, not to mention a little busy.  Here are a few highlights of our last couple of months.  Hold on!  This is going to be a roller coaster….and so thrown together! :)

Mari Morgan was in the production of Willy Wonka.  Needless to say, this show rocked our world.  It required MUCH  time and devotion.  There were lots of late nights and early mornings…but in the end, it was all worth it.  Mari Morgan loves the stage.  She was a candy kid and a squirrel.  It was a wonderful experience for her and she is ready to try out for Peter Pan in January.  

Kate and MM

Me and my little cute squirrel

Cousin Edie came to support her

MM and Sarah

Grandma and Papaw

MM and Kaci…Kaci is one of my tutoring students.  She was an Oompa Loompa.  It was neat to watch their relationship grow during their time at practice.

Sweet Sarah (another tutoring student who came to watch)


Nathan has been  swimming!!  This was at his first meet since coming back to the sport .  He loves it and did a great job!! 

Nathan, upset about the turn out at one of the races.  His coach is giving him some encouraging words. Thanks, Coach G.

Backstage at Wonka again

We let the squirrels  paint us up. :)

Nathan is swimming again!  He loves it and is getting ready for his first swim meet in October!   When you have a 12 year old pictures are embarrassing!  :) Took them while he was in the water!  :)

Gram's 90th Birthday Bash

We were all able to share the weekend with Brian's grandmother who celebrated 90 years.   We had quite a party.  About 50 family members from California, Georgia, and Texas were in Houston to celebrate. Gram is one of the sweetest ladies I know and has always made me feel so welcomed into the family. Happy Birthday, Gram! We love you.   Doesn't she look young??
