Astros 2015


We had a great season of Little League this year!  Bennett loves baseball, sports, and basically just being on a team.  What an athlete!

This was our last game which decided that we got 2nd place in the league!  We were the youngest team, too!


Group hug with Coach Branch!



Bennett's old team was playing right after his team and they needed another player.  They asked Bennett to play and he was thrilled to join in!


Bennett had his party to celebrate the season at Johnny's Pizza.  Since we were at the ER with Henry, Mom and Amy handled the party with Bennett and SK.  Thanks, Amy and Mom!  Amy sent all these pictures to me!






Getting his trophy.  Amy said the coach called Bennett up and said "last but not least, our best hitter, Bennett!"  That was sweet.

Henry's Golf Cart Accident









We had a super scary day the other day.  Bennett had a friend over, SK was asleep in her bed and we went outside to play.  I thought it would be fun to go on a crow hunt using the nerf guns, crow decoys, and golf cart.  We were all so excited to put out the decoys and hunt them (redneck, I know).  Until it went horribly wrong within the first 5 seconds.  Bennett and Sam loaded the crows on the back of the cart and strapped their guns on the cart.  We all loaded up and started moving maybe 1 foot.  I didn't find this out until we got home from the ER, but Henry tried to reach down to get a toy off the power wheel jeep and rolled off the golf cart.  I didn't know until he started screaming.  It was so awful and I could cry just typing this.

Sam said "Aw man, does this mean I have to go home?" ha!

I pick him up and screamed "my baby, my baby, my baby!"  We went inside to call Neil, Dad, Sam's mom, and the pediatrician.  All of these people said they couldn't understand me due to my hysteria! Dad showed up to watch the kids so I could get Henry to the doctor.  About the same time, Sam's mom came and took Bennett and Sam.  Neil got home and we headed to the doctor. The pediatrician's office told us to go to the ER or Urgent Care.  We went to Urgent Care because it was closer.  They looked at Henry and sent us to the ER.  We arrived at the ER with Henry and Sarah Kathryn.  They were both bring so good considering. 

I called Mom and she headed to the ER to pick up SK and to check on us.  She and Amy really saved the day!  Mom got SK and Bennett.  Amy went and picked up the cookie cake we were bringing to the baseball party, got Bennett dressed, and took him to the baseball pizza party AND sent me pictures!  Thanks, Mom and Amy!  What we do without you?


Henry was being so good considering his injuries.  When we were at home I had only seen that his arm was scraped and that he was favoring it.  I thought it was out of socket.  Bennett said "look at his head!"  Didn't see that.  Also, I didn't know he had anything on his back until they showed us at Urgent Care.  I cannot believe I didn't see all this.  The concrete did take off some of Henry's hair. which was unfortunate.  
Waiting for triage and to see the doctor

Cleaning all the injuries was so painful for him.  He was so brave!  Neil wanted me to step out of the room because I couldn't quit crying, but I was NOT leaving my boy.  I didn't let Henry see me, though. 
 

His head, back, ear, and arm are the most banged up. 
Henry had a CT and full body x-rays and they all came back NORMAL!  Thank you, Lord for placing your protecting hand on my big boy.  I am SOOOOO THANKFUL!  Blood work and urine were prefect, too.

We just took it easy the next day.  He was sad not to go back to FBCS camp, but he needed to rest.

Get Well balloon from Amy
His camp group made him a card.
And my amazing office gave us a Frozen Frog gift card and a massage to me.  The card that everyone signed was sooooooo sweet!

Blueberry Picking 2015

One of my favorite activities to do in the summer with my kids is to go blueberry picking.  We love it every year and look forward to it every summer.  I don't know why it's taken me 5 years to realize that we need to wear boots, but we did this time!  We met Amy who has Keegan and AC, Leigh and the boys, and Lauren, Gus, and Dottie (a friend from Henry's class).  What a fun afternoon of berry picking!

The first time I went I only had Bennett and I didn't realize how easy it was.  This time having 3 kids was harder.  I had 3 last year, but SK didn't have as much of an opinion as she did this year! Whew!  Memories made!

Here are some memories from past years:
Berry Picking: 2014
Berry Picking: 2013
Berry Picking: 2012
Berry Picking: 2011
Berry Picking: 2010


The boys went right out to the field!

This is how Amy feels about hot, sweat, fields, berries, and the whole blueberry picking deal! ha!

Bennett was a pro at the blackberries!

Henry loves to eat all of them.

Raspberries!

my favorite.


Henry thought the big boys were so funny! ha. Raspberry fingers.

Sissy was such a peach.  She even got her own popsicle!

She ate the whole thing!

Everyone loved watching the blueberries go down the table.  I loved the A/C!

The porch group photo is always a favorite. 


Me with my sweet babies.  My how these years have flown by.

Summer is in full swing!

Summer has really kicked off this week!  I love the lazy mornings on days I don't have to work.  We've spent some time at the library, the pool, and enjoying the outdoors due to no rain!


Bennett had to opportunity to attend Pine Cove Camp in the City.  I cannot say enough wonderful things about this camp.  AMAZING!  I do not want him to miss this camp after seeing how wonderful it was!

This is how Henry felt after we left Bennett at camp.  He was so upset that he didn't get to stay.

We had a Mommy/Henry day.  Here we are at the grocery store.

We did library story time.

Henry colored these puppets to go along with the story The Paper Bag Princess.

Pool time for me, Henry, and SK while Bennett attended camp.


Grilling outside, homemade ice cream, and dirty kids....this is what summer is made of!

Pine Cove Camp in the City


I cannot say enough good things about Pine Cove Camp in the City.  I heard about it from a few people, but didn't sign Bennett up until a couple weeks before.  It turned out to be a great decision!  Bennett LOVED this camp.  A church near our house hosted it.  They had 6-7 inflatable water games, harness trampoline, 9 square, and so much more.  They had Bible study, camp wide games against the counselors, super hero dress up day, and even a sweet closing celebration for the parents on Friday.  Oh, and the app that uploaded pictures everyday was a huge hit!  Like I said, I can't quit thinking about this camp!  Bennett is already asking to go next year and to go to the overnight camp in Tyler, TX.  We shall see.  After reading the website, I want to go!!!


Julia brought Bennett to camp for me so I wouldn't have to double back.  Here are the little superheroes.

Superhero dress up day.  They talked about the heroes of the Bible all week.

Need for Spleen was his counselor's name.  Bennett loved him!  Here he is reading Bennett's "CQ" to him.  It's his character qualities certificate.  So sweet!


I took this off the app!

Another one from the app.

Bennett said this game was called Mammoth Hunt...he said it was a blast.  You had to take socks off all the counselors arms or something like that.

Coolangatta Tent

Day 1 of camp!  He was so excited!
