Hudson and attempting the potty

Hudson has been showing a little bit of interest in going to the bathroom, so I thought it would be a good idea to get him kind of used to the toilet. He likes to take his Elmo book in there and just read, one day he will get it down! But he looks so cute!!

Summer Sprinkler Fun

Just a few pictures of the kids playing in the sprinklers last night. The past week we have been home fight bad colds, and ear infections, the boys and I were going having a bit of cabin fever this week. Yesterday evening Clint was home early and did the lawn and the boys ran around in the sprinklers for an hour or so, needless to say they went to sleep very quickly!

Costner receiving the Best Reader Award

Costner saying his scripture verse. I have been practicing it with him for the past week, we would call it our secret code.
For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
Trying hard not to smile

Costner has Graduated from Kindergarten, and is heading on to First grade at his new school. I don't know where the time went. We are so proud of him, tonight he was awarded the best reader award, and he said his scripture verse so well, and sang so great!! I am a little sad, because I feel we are closing a book of one chapter and opening another chapter in his life at a new school and in first grade!! And another part is I feel so OLD!! I have a first grader!! YIKES!!!

Brooks and Mommy Tea Party

Brooks has been so excited for his mommy and him tea party his class was doing at school. Today was the day, it started at 9:30, after I dropped the boys off at school I had to run and drop Hudson off at the babysitters house. By the time I got back to school for the tea party, poor Brooks was sitting on one of his teachers laps while all the other kids and there moms were at all the tables. I felt so bad, for being a few minutes late, but he was so excited when He saw me. I always feel like since he is the middle child he sometimes gets left out a bit, so I try to make him feel extra special!! His school did a great job at the tea party, and it was nice to spend the morning with Brooks and his friends.

Weekend Pool Time

Saturday we had such a long day at the Y, because both the boys had picture day, and then they had a game afterwords, needless to say the pictures took FOREVER!! What a Joke, I don't think we will do that next year, totally not organized, it would have been better if we just took the boys in the backyard and did it ourselves. After the games we thought we would go check out Memes pool to see how it was doing, and the boys wanted to go swimming, so we let them go in there underwear, I know slightly white trash of us, but hey they had a blast!!! I on the other went home and got Clint, Hudson and my swimsuit! It was a bit cold but they had fun.

I didn't catch this in time, but instead of going in the pool house to go to the bathroom this is were I found him, Yeah its a boy thing!

The Boys Last Spring Show at First Baptist Acadamy

Costner and Brooks had their last spring show last week at First Baptist Academy. Costner and Brooks started going there for mothers day out and then Costner for preschool and they had grade school so that is where Costner has been going to school for Kindergarten as well. This year the school decided that this would be their last year to have 1st thru 4Th grade, we were very disappointed since we had been there for so many years, and were planning on keeping all the boys there. When Clint and I found out we thought that maybe it would be time for us to move to a better school district, (Montgomery or Magnolia) and go ahead and put the boys in public school. So we started looking for houses and thinking of things that we needed to do to get our house ready to sale. As we began to start looking online and driving around looking at different neighborhoods, and then looking at different public schools, Clint and I started to not have a peace about moving. I know that I was a little disappointed about not getting a larger house and having some acreage for the boys, but after Clint I decided that it just wasn't the right time for us to move and that we still wanted the boys to go to private school, I felt so much peace and knew that we had made the right decision. After we made the decision of staying I realized all the things we would be missing by moving, our Wonderful neighbors that our like family to us, and how much all of them feel like home to us, and how much I love that they are all so much a big part in my boys life! When Clint is gone I know that I can go to anyone of them and they would be more than willing to help out with anything. They are more like another set of Grandma and Grandpa's and Aunt's and Uncles than neighbors to our boys and I would hate to leave them.

After we had decided to stay at our house it was time to find a new school for the boys. So in February we began touring a few in the area we decided on Lifestyle Christian School. After filling out our application, we had our interview with Costner today, and starting next year Costner will start 1st grade and Brooks will start all day Pre-K at Lifestyle the boys are very excited and though we are sad to leave First Baptist Academy we look forward to our new adventure at our new school.

Costner with his teacher Mrs. Anderson, who we are going to miss so much she has worked so hard with Costner

We were so proud of Brooks the past few years during programs he has always cried or just sat there, this year he was really getting into it, in fact at one part he was the loudest one, we were so proud!
And off course this one Clint was out of town...

T-Ball Season

Costner and Brooks are loving T-ball, this is their first year, but they are having a great time. Costner has practice every Tuesday night at six, and we are normally late since we are just finishing up swim lessons, run and grab dinner and run to practice, by the time we get home I am exhausted! Costner's games are on Saturday morning, right after Brooks early, EARLY morning game. Seriously I want to know who's idea it was to have kids games on a Saturday morning at 8:15, that is just insane to me, but we go. This past week Clint was out of town so thankfully the YMCA opens up the daycare for it's members, which helps me out so much so two kids go up while I spend time with one at their game, and then I switch Brooks out with Costner.

Costner's team is the Pirates

Suzie's Surprise Birthday

Clint's mom, Suzie was turning 60 this year, and we decided it would be fun to try to put together a surprise birthday for her. We were able to pull the entire thing off, amazingly, there were many times Clint and I, thought that somehow it would slip by either us or Clint's sister, Angee and her husband Brian. We surprised her by having Clint's dad, Bill, who lives in Australia, and his sister and husband, from Oregon, and Suzie's two Aunts from California all fly in for the party. The night of the party we told her that we wanted to take her out to dinner Angee and Brian and Clint and I, so we went to Pappadeaux were everyone and everything was all set up!! She was completely surprised to see everyone that had flown in for the party, she had NO CLUE, it was awesome!!!

I know she was so surprised on seeing Bill, since he flew all the way from Australia, and she had no idea!!

Costner's Birthday- a few weeks ago...

I know, I know I am behind, by a few weeks... oh well...

Costner's birthday was on April 7Th, and he turned six, we can't believe how fast he is growing up! We knew that for his birthday he really wanted a dirt bike, in fact he quickly learned how to ride his bike without his training wheels so that he would be able to get a dirt bike. We would have loved to have gotten him one, but we just don't have the room for one right now. So we settled on lots of leggos!!! Clint had taken most of the week off the week of Costner's Birthday to spend time with Costner, and I was hosting bunco at our house that week so he was nice enough to help out with Bunco night preparations, and because we had been planning a suprise birthday party for Clint's mom, Suzie. I don't know what I would have done without Clint home that week, he was so helpful in everything!!

We all went up to Costner's school with ice cream cups for everyone in his class

Costner had his favorite breakfast for his birthday, an egg and bacon taco, then he got to pick out what he wanted for dinner, he off course wanted, shrimp, and crab, nice expensive taste!!
Even though Clint was having a stay vacation, he had to start his vacation off with an umbrella drink, it was pretty GOOD!!
