Our Happenings

Long time, no post!  The school year is in full swing with a lot of things going on!  The kids are doing so great this year!  I was so worried about Jolea, but she seems to be doing wonderful so far.  It's only a month into school and she has already finished her 5th chapter book!  I'm so proud of her.

Jolea and Luke also started art lessons this month.  It's been so great! I love seeing the things they bring home, and the creativity that they are both expressing.  I didn't know they had it in them.  Luke wasn't so thrilled at first.  All he wanted to do was learn to draw a shark. lol  The art lessons are so much more than that, and its also helping them build some creative thinking and they are proud of their work. 

Football is also in full swing.  Our Bulldogs are 4 and 0 so far this season.  This is the first time in my life I've actually enjoyed watching football. 

Breanna also has made the varsity basketball team!  We were so excited for her.  Being in such a larg school she thought her chances of varsity basketball were slim and even thought about not playing.  I actually had to make her go to practice and low and behold she made the team.  I knew she had it in her, but her self esteem and confidence was really crushed at her previous school.  I'm so glad to see the coaches and staff here building her back up.  It's a whole different world for her here.  She works hard and her hard work pays off. You don't get the top positions because of who you are or who your parents are, or who you're friends with.  They encourage her and push her to be the best she can be.  I love seeing her doing so great.  Life is so good.  It's so nice to just be able to focus on our family without any distractions.

I'm also enjoying staying home.  With Joey's awkward work schedule, I don't know how I'd be able to work full time and take care of all the kids!   Luci and I enjoy our days together.  They grow up so fast, and I'm thankful I get to enjoy this time with her.  The only breaks we get are when we head home to visit my parents.  I usually take at least one day while we are there to run around by myself or with Joey without the kids. :)

I posted some random photos from my phone below.  Luci is our biggest bulldog fan.  It almost keeps her as occupied as the beach!  She loves the games.  She cheers and dances the whole time. :)
Enjoy the pics.
