{senior year of cheer}


{His first homecoming}

My son, Brady, has never been a fan of dances. But Friday night he attended his first one with his girlfriend Jayme! It was a bittersweet moment for this mom. 


He also came across his old friend since pre-school, Josie! So had to get a picture with her as well!

~homecoming week ~ (from iPhone cause that seems to be the only camera I carry these days)

Somehow I ended up camera-less( real camera-less. Just the iPhone)  and some how I ended up in a garage to get a few pictures of Brooke and her friends before the dance??? They didn't seem to care like us moms did.....

Ashley, Gracie, Hannah, and Brooke posing it in some sort of hunting equipment. 

In deep thought....

Annoyed by us moms wanting more photos....

Dijon, Brooke and Gaige dressed up as high school musicial....

Disney day homecoming week...

Brooke as batman (or women) with Chayton as robin

Brooke and Sam ( batgirl and robin)

~remember Otis~

It's been awhile since I've posted about Otis! He's got so much personality (for a dog) he loves his toys and boy does he have a lot of them! He's such a smart dog! I think the smartest I've ever owned!

Enjoys rides and isn't afraid to jump in the drivers seat now and then.....

He's precious when he's sleeping..... I mean come on.

~these two~

These two are a couple weeks into their senior and sophomore year! I know it being my daughter's senior year it will fly by like the past 17 years have! 

I'm praying they both have a great year and continue to make their dad and I proud!

~Canning okra~

Today, after Church, we spent some time canning the okra my husband picked! Who doesn't like pickled okra? It's kinda delicious!

Wait. what?

      I have to stop and think how she grew up so fast! Yesterday I called and made an appointment with an old friend of ours for my daughter's Senior Pictures. In a world of endless selfies these days she has plenty pictures but senior pictures is going to be bittersweet! I can't wait next month to go with her and get them done but I'm going to be kind of sad:( 
I'm excited for her as she's excited about her senior year and I pray it's a good one for her! She again made the cheer team this year and next week she'll start practicing and then shortly after school will be in full swing again! I'm excited to see her grow up but man it went fast! Enjoy yours while they are young. I've heard that many times before and it is totally true.

took 3rd in Lincoln

our freshmen boys took 3rd place in Lincoln, Ne in March. It was a fun weekend and great group of boys. Watch out for these guys in a couple years. Brady is front row on far right. Brady is 6'2" now and I believe he's still growing. At least he eats like he is:)

prom (as a junior)

I have a few hundred pictures of my daughter's junior prom this year but thought I'd do a few here and there so not so overwhelming for everyone. The whole prom was a little overwhelming for me anyhow. Just realizing she's already old enough for her junior prom and I have no clue where the time went. Prom was back in March and I think our school was the very first to have prom. I know the rest the towns around us just had theirs this month. Chuck and I were volunteered to help with after prom by another couple(so nice of them). It has been a long time since I've stayed up until 4 am. But it was a fun time.
