In Which Emma Plays Ultimate

Emma, holding the frisbee, joined Parker's first ever Ultimate Frisbee team this spring! 

And while Ultimate was not a "thing" when I was a kid I had enough of a clue about it to know that this was totally up her alley! 

Right from minute one, she loved everything about this game. 
And picked it up quickly! 

They had their last game today. And since I had not been to any I just knew I had to be at this one! 
It was a gorgeous day to be out there, at my first ever Ultimate game, watching my youngest girl have the time of her life! 
I am looking forward to seeing all she learns and how much she grows as a player during the High School Summer league she will be playing on in Lexington this summer. With how much she loved this game we knew we needed to find a team for her to play on this summer, as well as next year since she is returning to life as a homeschooler. Ultimate is such a much better fit for Emma than soccer was, and we are grateful to Jacob for starting this team and being her first coach! His love for this game shows and he has truly nstilled it upon all the members of the team, but especially Emma! xo

On Mother's Day


It was such an absolutely lovely Mother's Day today!  From the gorgeous flowers that Dave's parents sent me, to the most perfect cards and gifts from Dave and the girls to the Mother's Day crown that the chuldren made in Sunday School for their moms (and that I made an example one of the night before) to the yummy dinner Dave made I couldn't ask for a more delightful day! Thank you, Grace and Emma, for making my dreams of motherhood a reality! It truly is my most favorite job ever (my calling, if you will)! And thank you, David, for always making me feel like a queen! I am blessed beyond meassure! xo

Good-Bye, Sweet Friend

This sweet soul crossed the rainbow bridge today. She lived an incredible eighteen years, of which she was part of our world for twelve. In those twelve years a lot of life happned and Gretchen was my constant companion through it all. I will miss my friend, my co-worker, my sidekick, my sweet girl. My lap will be a little cooler without her around, and my office won't be the same without my beloved co-worker to keep an eye on me and all I do. They say grief is the debt you pay for having loved. I don't think I will ever be able to pay this off. Rest well, Miss Gretchen. Word on the street is that you had a dog and a cat waiting to welcome over. Until we meet again, sweet girl. xo
