Happy Anniversary!

Today is my parent's 39th wedding anniversary.  I am so proud and thankful that God chose these two people to be my parents.  I have been so lucky and blessed to grow up in a home with two loving parents who were dedicated to one another and committed to giving me a happy, healthy upbringing.  Growing up as an only child, I have always been super close to my parents and we always did everything together.  I remember my parents as an unshakable team as I was growing up.  They are best friends and I always hoped that when I grew up I would have a strong marriage like they do.  They set the best example of a great marriage...they know how to be selfless, forgiving, and compassionate with one another.  I just couldn't have had a better example.  I am also blown away at the amazing grandparent they have become!  They are always there for my kids and probably more than any tangible object, they give Brock and Kenzie their time.  They always have time for my kids, whether it be inviting them for a sleepover or making their favorite meal.  It is really important to them that they are involved with their grandchildren.  The kids know that they can count on them to be there no matter what the need.  Finally, my parents have chosen to love and accept my husband as their own family and both Chuck and I will be forever grateful for that.  We love you Mom and Dad!  Happy Anniversary...and here's to many more happy years and memories!

Kenz is playing softball this year in Ohio City.  She is really enjoying it and she has some good coaches helping her to learn the game.  She is becoming a hitter and now she hates it when she gets walked at bat...she wants to hit the ball!  The coaches have also given her lots of opportunities to try different positions.  So far she has played in the outfield, short stop, second base, and most recently, catcher.  I have not been very good at taking pictures, so last night we tried to snap a few, but it was so hot, we only took a couple.

Last Day of School!!!

Today is the last day of school for the kids!  I have been out for almost a week, but it isn't really summer until the kids are out...I truly can't wait to spend time with them this summer.  They just keep right on growing even though I have told them repeatedly to stop it!! Anyway, Kenz and I worked on a cute little gift for her teacher last night.  I had seen this on another blog and since Kenz loves all things crafty, I thought this would be perfect.  I was right!  Simple, easy, and quick...right up my alley!! :0)
