A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Rheagan with Erin, Hannah, and Lauren having fun on field day. Note Big Mike as the remotant.
What is there to say?

Tap was the first dance - HSM FabulousThe Stutzman girls - in Rhea's class, basketball team and great friends.

Jen came to see the performance.
The ballet song was Jesus Loves Me - in a Celtic way.

Another year older and wiser

Thanks to the many who called to remind me that I"m a year older. (My hair is telling me I'm older). It was great to get caught up with some buddies and a sweet reminder how many people I call friend. I am blessed.

So many many little blogging

We really have been busy lately. Really we have. Here are just a few of our highlights...

  • AWANA Awards at church. Rheagan received a special plaque for finishing both books. Way to go Rheagan and Alayna.

  • Field day - sporting several new ribbons in all shades of the rainbow to put on the cork board. (The Feisty Flamingos won the 2nd grade award!)

  • Mother's Day -lunch at the Cleveland Country Club with MH and Mimi. A delicious lunch and great company. Have I mentioned I have WONDERFUL Christian role models of MOMs? Thanks to you both!

  • After the lunch we came home to set up the Mother's Day present - a new TV. Amazing the quality of newer electronics.

  • a spend-the-night party first - ON A WEEKDAY. Yes - we broke all cardinal rules and let Rhea spend the night with her buddy on Wednesday.

  • Soccer games galore. Rheagan has watched 3 games this week with her Lady Flames team. We traveled down the road to watch Cleveland beat Ooltewah in the region semi-finals. The CHS soccer team won the sub-state game tonight. It was very exciting. Congrats Johnny B and the boys. Good luck this week.

  • Rheagan had her dance dress rehearsal and recital this week. It was precious. Her tap was to the HSM song "Fabulous". The ballet song was a Celtic version of "Jesus Loves Me". Thanks to Jen, Kathy and girls, and Molls for coming.

And what about Tripp, you ask. Well, it's called being "along for the ride" in all these activities. His day will come. He stopped just long enough today to get a picture.... the face says it all.

Friends come to the Creek

Over the past week I've caught on camera buddies who have come to our house. Rheagan had Hannah spend the night with her last Friday. We fished, roasted marshmallows by the fire, and giggled like girls do.

Mattie G. came to the house today for a few hours to hang out with Tripper. We played with bubbles, balls and the "baby dogs". Our lab had lab-golden retriever chocolate pups. Here is a picture of the chick pup. Anyone interested in the young man that we're giving away?

Tomorrow is field day so I'm sure I'll have plenty of pictures to share.

(Note to self - do not try to upload pictures late at night.... I'm too tired to wait on the uploader to work.)
