~it started in preschool

Bryce & Brady
These two have been friends since preschool!!!  Sadly about 4 years ago we moved and they do not hang out as much they only reunite during sports. Bryce's mom tagged me in this picture on Facebook and I love it. The two had to tip off against each other during last weeks game in Ogallala. Brady now wears the blue uniform. I'd say they both can jump now too. It was good getting to talk to Bryce after the game and good for Brady to see all his friends again.

~seventeen candles~

It's hard to believe this little guy driving my mom and I around in the photo here is 17!
WHAT??
Seems impossible. He's such a joy and blessing to our family!
His humor and the way he's ALWAYS SMILING gets me every time.
As I was making his cake last night and my husband and I were putting 17 candles on it. I said
can you believe we are putting this many candles on his cake already.

At school with some of his buddies during spirit week.

~it's how they ask these days??


~Confidence, Not cockiness

My son (as a junior)  has career day today at college! So we were talking about the booths they might have there to visit!

 He says:    "do they have a male model booth"
 
I say:        " no, no they won't!
 

He says:       "they will when I get there!"
 
                 (Which made his father and I laugh.  And even my son smiled.)
 
 
By this you would think my son had too much confidence, but for real it's something he has struggled with. And it's something we have talked with him about after several basketball, football, baseball games. He's just starting basketball season and I can tell his confidence has improved. Which is what we were hoping for.

knowing who you are is confidence.
Cockiness is knowing who you are and pushing it down everyone's throat" Mila Kunis

Happy, Happy, Veteran's Day


We were extra excited doing this news interview just before my hubby was to come home after 16 months in Iraq..... it was the longest 16 months of our lives. Kids kept track on calendar crossing the days out. (not sure but that may have made it longer)
 Before he left on his second tour.

 
While he was there.
 
Happy Veteran's Day to my hubby and the rest of you out there.
 
It's because of you.
