~Sweet Prayers~

Tonight, Dax made me giggle a little while we were saying his prayers.  When I asked him what he wanted to pray for tonight, he immediately said "mommy, first you always need to say Thank You to Jesus because he died on the cross for me."  (Such a sweet smart boy!) I told him he was absolutely right and ask if there was anything or anyone he wanted to pray for.  He said, "Well, my three brothers live at my old house and one of them fell in the dirt and broke his arm." I reply with that's nice Dax, but why don't we pray for your 2 sisters, that are real.  He corrected me by saying his brother's were real and that one had really broken his arm.  As we begin to pray, he stops me and says, I forgot about my dog mommy.  My Doggy has a broken leg, we have to pray for my dog!  So why did I giggle - Because Dax definitely does not have any brothers or a dog.  Oh how I love this child and his wild imagination.

~Friend Friday~

It has been forever since I did a "Friend Friday" post.  I didn't mean to be so slack, I guess I just haven't been blogging on Friday, or I had other stuff to say.  This week's "Friend Friday" is all about........My MOM!!  Mom, Gina, Gigi's....You can call her whatever you want :)  Not only is she my mom, but I consider her one of my best friends!  We have been through a lot together, and yes we argue at times and don't always see eye to eye.  But I can always count on her to be honest with me and tell me the truth - even if it is somethinng I don't want to hear.  Since I was little, she has always been there for me and supported me in everything I have ever been involved with.  It is also her 52nd Birthday!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMA!!!  I love you!  Thanks for everything you have ever done for me!  I hope you have an awesome day!

~5k, 4k, 2k~

My kiddos are growing up! I can't believe Lani is now a kindergartner!  She loves school and is anxious to get there everyday!  She even walked in all by herself on the second day.  Of course, I did have my cousin Wendy, waiting for her at the door, in case she got lost. :)

Dax skipped 3k this year and had his first day of 4k at Covenant Christian Academy.  He has a November birthday and will be 4 soon.  He was ready for 4k.  Dax loves school too.  Recess and lunch are his favorite parts of the day :)  Dax also loves baseball and I couldn't get him to take a normal pic.  He had to pretend he was was playing baseball.  :)

Off to 2k!  My little Harper, is now in my class at Covenant!  She had a bad hair day on the first day of school, so she is looking a little rough.  She has had a great first week at school.  She hasn't gotten upset with sharing her mommy with her friends at all! 

Her bookbag is bigger than her!

The first week of school, wore us out.  But we are happy to get back on a schedule.  Happy New School Year Everyone!!

Trace Adkins - Just Fishin'

For the last 2 weeks, I have heard this song everyday. It is usually on everytime I get in the car. I can't tell you how much I love this song! It reminds me so much of my daddy! I loved fishing with him and it was much more than fishing - I have the best memories. I even had a pink fishing rod, just like the little girl in this song. Of course, that pink fishing rod is at the bottom of Lake Hartwell. Daddy had ordered for me and it even had my name engraved on it. So anyways, I love this song and the happiness it makes me feel. Have a great day - Ansley
