Florida or Bust!

Jack running away from the waves.
Taking a break eating animal crackers and drinking juice.

Jack watching the waves for the first time.

Last week Jack and I headed to Destin to spend time with my family. My dad was generous enough to rent a condo on the beach for a week and we all had a great time together. Jack was absolutely not afraid of the ocean. It was a little scary! He would run out into the water at full speed and would get taken over by a wave and would come up spattering and screaming "No, no water!!"

There are many more pictures, but most of them include me in a bathing suit. Those aren't getting on the internet. For good reason, would all be blinded by the "white!" Also, my camera broke halfway through the trip! So sad.

I love this age with Jack. He is so full of life and learning new things every day. We really had a great time in Destin. Thanks, Dad!

Swim Party

We are blessed to be part of the New Parents Sunday School class. We had a moms and kids swim party last weekend and had 13 moms and 20 kids show up! We had a blast letting the kids play in the water, slip and slide, and baby pools. We ate hot dogs afterwards, then all headed home for a nap! Great time that we'll have to do again! Please ignore Jack's pink floaties. I didn't bring his and our host only has granddaughters. HA!

Officially Summer

This is the first week that I'm considering officially summer because Clint and Jack have recovered from surgery and VBS is over. And, baby, we are livin' it up. Teaching has its many challenges, but a huge perk is that I only work 9 months of the year. Every time I'm overwhelmed with life during the school year, I just take a deep breath and remember, "Summer is coming."

Clint is out of town most of the week, which stinks, but Jack and I are having a great time. Monday I worked out while Jack played with friends and then we went to the zoo. Jack loved the monkeys and the train. We went back home for a quick lunch, then headed to DeRidder to hang out with Amy Shillingburg and her precious son, Ben. Then we ate supper with Mom at New Life's VBS. After we put Jack down we watched Marley and Me. I cried, and that's a big deal, because as my sisters would tell you, I have a cold, cold heart. (Well, at least when it comes to movies). Sad movie! However, it was so refreshing to watch a movie where the husband and wife stay married through thick and thin.

Tuesday we went to Dry Creek for lunch at the camp and visited with Dee and PaPaw. Then, we headed home. Jack fell asleep in the stroller while we were taking a walk, and I just put him in bed and haven't heard from him since!

AAAhhhhh.....cleaned out storage building. You can't beat that.

Jack's expression riding the train.

Happy mommy and boy.

Seriously, why do I cook spaghetti?

Right now there are three things making Jack happy: Thomas the Tank Engine, popsicles, and this ABC Hip Hop video. Very fun!

Kiss them Bye Bye!

Jack is having his tonsils and adenoids out and tubes put in tomorrow. YAY!! And I'm not saying that with sarcasm. We've had so many ear infections over the past year and I'm so tired of seeing Jack feel bad. We have to be at the surgery center at 5:45 AM and we can't give him anything to eat or drink after midnight. That is not going to be fun! We should be back home in the mid morning. I'll update tomorrow or Thursday!

Check those suckers out! They almost touch each other!

Sweet, happy boy that has no idea what's about to hit him!
