After Game Love

Mollee and Tavis fight. They fight often. But Tavis is a lover and Mollee needs acceptance, so, somehow it works. I can remember fighting, and fighting nasty, with my brothers, but they were the most important to me in high school.

Mollee and Tavis roam the high school halls together now. I know the fighting is not over, but I also see them begin to really love and appreciate each other.

After Mollee's game tonight, they walked together. Tavis congratulated Mollee on a win. Mollee said thanks for coming. They walked Tavis' arm around Mollee's neck, but I snapped a photo later.
And I am pretty sure Mollee hit Tavis at some point soon after this photo was taken.

She has Tavis. I had Philip.

And I love to watch it from the parent sidelines.

Mollee and Soccer

 I love to watch her play. So aggressive. So intense.

Homework with Cousins

Mac and Townes - same age (10 days apart), same grade, and now same school and same classroom.

So, so silly! But we made it through spelling!

Officer's Training

I worked my tail off this week to help Pastor Pirschel prepare for Officer's Training. He was teaching a seminar this weekend for all of our Elders and Deacons (about 50 men) to discuss the church's vision. Being Executive Assistant to the Pastor, I got to prepare outlines and play "hostess".

I fed them barbecue on Friday night, muffins, fruit, and coffee for breakfast, and sub sandwiches for lunch on Saturday. Tavis helped me Friday night and Mollee helped me on Saturday. I was exhausted, but I would call the weekend a success.

This is what my front porch looks like about every eight weeks. I know what I'm doing, but I don't enjoy it. But I'm saving money!!

Turning 40!

Today, I turned 40. Apparently, it was no big deal. Not much happened, Jason worked late, so I took the kids out to eat - "Happy Birthday to me!"

Quidditch with Caines and Harris cousins

Uncle Philip always has interesting games planned.

 White/Pink ball to score, the yellow ball the bludger.

 Seekers finding hidden quarters in the grass.

 Very fun, and the "littles" got Owls inviting them to Hogwarts.

My other son

Aaron Lazor lived with us a few weeks this summer. We loved having him, and Mac really, really loved having him.

Hair Do Re-Do

Just for fun! I got my hair done...professionally. I did it on the Fourth, but I got it done again with lighter blonde and more black. And shorter. I love it!

School Begins

Locker Day/Desk Day was Tuesday
Only one more Elementary kid to get a picture with a teacher. Mac and Ms. Whitmore.
First day of school - my favorite bookbag picture, yet my stair steps are a little messed up.
These two high schoolers have a love/hate relationship.

My Middle Schoolers, forced to show some love.
Mac, the only Elementary kid, with no one to hug.

Looking good -
And, their grades -
And, just for fun, a look of the past four years.
