Carnival Party

Anna Claire was invited to a birthday party last weekend and it was a carnival party.  She really had a great time.  It was her first party to attend without her big sisters.  She seemed a little lost at first, but quickly found her place and had lots of fun.  Her favorite thing was the body bopper.  She absolutely loved that and looked so cute playing.

Cutie bug!

Here comes summer

We have been experiencing some really nice and beautiful weather most days lately, and other days it has been dreary and cold.  When it's nice out, we stay outside as much as possible.  We all like playing tennis, so we do that as often as we get the chance.

The girls have 8 more days of school left, and I'm not sure who is more excited.... me or them??!!

Our trip back to AL is coming up and we are all very much looking forward to that.

The girls finish out gymnastics for the year next week.  They have all 3 had a wonderful year and have grown a lot.  I'm so glad they enjoy it so much.  They all have really great coaches and I can't say enough good things about where they take classes.

Craig and I begin our marathon training in just 1 week.  EEEEEKKK, looking forward to it and a bit nervous too.  Running is lots of fun, but definitely not for the faint of heart.  It is hard work!

I take my final exam for group fitness instructor in 3.5 weeks, so I have lots of studying to do!  Sure hope I pass!

Ready to get this summer started!!!:):):)

Enjoying the sunshine!

Off to church we go!  Anyone else notice that our oldest child is taller than me?  Crazy!

15 Years Ago....

.......I said yes!  Craig asked me to marry him 15 years ago today!  It was SO very exciting.  I remember the day like it was yesterday!  He took me to a place that held many special memories for him right after we were finished with our classes for the day.  It was a Wednesday, so we had to be back for church as I taught children and he taught the youth.  I'm sure I wore a big smile for at least a week, even in my sleep.

In 15 years, there have been lots of ups and lots of downs, a few moves, 3 precious blessings, and some really great memories that will last a lifetime.

I'm so thankful he asked, I'm so thankful I said yes, and I look forward to what the Lord has in store for the next 15, 25, 40 years:)

Destiny Rescue 5K

Craig and I ran the Race to Rescue 5K yesterday, which was lots of fun.  Several folks, including our family, from our church helped with the race this year.  Destiny Rescue is just a really great ministry that rescues children from sex trafficking. 

Craig finished 2nd overall and 2nd male.  His time was 25:21.  I finished 5th overall, and 2nd female.  My time was 28:14.  This is a trail race and it's lots of fun, but challenging in that there are lots of rocks, stumps, mud, and roots.  I actually fell during mile 2 and it just so happened to be in the one spot where it was all dirt and no rocks, thank the Lord.

It was a beautiful day and quite warm when there wasn't a breeze.

We are ready!

Love this ministry, love this man, love to run!

All of the sweet CFBC helpers with the exception of Mr. Bob who left before we gathered for the picture!
