Papa Prays with Boys

Papa Rex often flies into our town and stays overnight for a visit. He almost always says a special prayer with the boys and they love it!

Book Character Day

It was book character day at BPS. Bo was so intense on not wanting to be like anyone else, Jake didn't care. Bo ended up as "Thing 1" from Dr. Seuss and Jake was Indiana Jones, except he really wanted to wear a coon-skinned hat... so that's what he did! I'm sure no one was dressed like him.

Can You Find the Monkey in the Tree?

I walked out my back deck and heard a little voice yelling at me... can you find Jake in the tree?

Jake is Six!

Jake started out the day eating breakfast at Brenda's with Hunter and Heath Berry after spending the night with Hunter.Then after school we all went to watch Bo play flag football in Springfield.Our next stop was Chuck E Cheese! This is Jake and his best buddy, Cael.

I say this all the time but Jake is such a joy to me! He is almost always happy, he has a crazy, fun sense of humor, he is kind and loves others. He is ORNERY but when corrected responds with sincere apologies. I LOVE MY JAKER!!!!

Bo Had a Long Day

Bo played in a flag football tourney today in Springfield. He wasn't thrilled to see a girl on the other team and even more distressed that he knew her, Lexi, some of our best friends, the Berry's from Branson. By the end of the day he was beat!

I saw these candles online that are battery operated...not really lit. I thought they were so cool and started to order one to replace the HOPE candle my friend, Lana, got me that I could never seem to light (which I've tried several times). Well suddenly it occured to me that MAYBE that candle was battery powered??? Went over and picked it up...guess what??? :-)

Annie the Shoe Thief

Our dog Annie comes home with different shoes from neighbors all the time. We then have the task of determining who the shoes belong to and returning them...which is no easy task! Luckily the neighbors all love her and think this is funny. :-)

Church Nursery

I'm not sure if they like us doing church nursery...seems like my boys just end up playing the whole time!

Grandma's House

My sweet grandma passed away about 9 months ago and we all loved visiting her unique, large, old house. This last week my mom went with her siblings to start the clean out process. She asked Jake "is there anything you remember from grandma's that you would like to keep as a reminder of her?" Jake quickly replied "Oh yes! That chair that takes grandma up and down the stairs!" :)

Weekend at Eldon

For Father's Day we went to Dwain's parents' home in Eldon. The boys went a few days before us and had fun fishing and eating great food! They always get creative and that's why you see the pillowcase race!

Jake's 1st Baseball Game

After years of watching his brothers, it's finally Jake's turn! He is playing in Bolivar at the YMCA. His first AB he got a hit and an RBI! Go Jake! After the game he was telling Deacon (who was in Springfield at his own game) the important details... "I got a hit, I did a great job, AND EVEN WE GOT POWERADE AFTER THE GAME!"

Joe the Plumber

Last week I got to attend a political rally with none other than Joe the Plumber. Our friend, Mike Parson, is running for State Senate and he is so great to introduce us to cool people... he's the one that got me Sarah Palin tickets :)!!!

Joe was very much like you would expect, friendly, personable, laid back, and smoking a cigarette. We had a great conversation with him, he said he feels like education in politics is so important, that people will make the right decision if they are educated... I agree!!!

Feeding the Ducks

Bolivar has such a great park and my boys love harassing the ducks (aka feeding them).
