Lake Day

I forgot the girls and I had a morning at lake charles a few weeks ago!

Josh was gone and the electricity was out for several hours....so to Mcdonalds (first for coffee and wifi) and to the lake we went!







Thankful

We have really had a good summer!  I can't believe both of the girls will be starting school next week, what in the world?!  Our whole life is about to be turned upside down, but that's ok!!

The girls have great teachers, and are excited about school.  I'm excited for them, but have mixed emotions as the momma!  I know all this is normal and we will be in a groove sooner than later.  We would appreciate any prayers as we make this transition...they've both been home with me every day, all year.


These random summer pictures are in no particular order:

Our huddle group from Black Mountain

My mom met us in Searcy one weekend and treated us to lunch and shopping while Josh was out of town recruiting. 

We had a week of VBS.


We've spent a lot of time in the car...and swatting mosquitos.


Josh and I were able to attend an FCA marriage conference.  The girls stayed at my dads and we made a quick stop before dropping them off.  Josh and I were excited to show them the stadium...they were just ready to be out of the car.

Both girls started dance.  Aubrey was a hot mess the first day.  

We got to keep baby Winnie one day.


Made a super quick road trip to Alabama,but loved getting to see the Newells and the Griffords!



These girls are growing up!


This is what my dad fed them for breakfast, LOL!

Swimming












Langley completed 2 weeks of swimming lessons...Aubrey was a patient sister, waiting in the HEAT...we celebrated the last day with the water park!

One of the best weeks of the year

Black Mountain 2015!







We borrowed my mom's car for this trip.  As usual, we stayed in Nashville the first night.  We swam and that was all the girls cared about!!

Our first afternoon at camp we drove into Montreat, went to the store for snacks, then took a nap.
The next afternoon we drove to Casar to the Brackett family homeland!  Josh was awesome and talked to everyone and we ended up at my great aunt margie's house.  I'm pretty sure I was related to everyone we saw!!




The last day we played in the creek then went up to Lee hall for ice cream.











We had a great huddle, the girls loved every minute, and we had awesome teachers and pastors.  We are just so thankful for this awesome place and camp!
