Trace and Tennis

Trace has really enjoyed playing on the PG Tennis team his freshman year! This was the first local tournament! I was able to go during my lunch hour...Jamie was able to stay the whole time he was playing he updated me through the day. The last update was the pic of trace and his coach (Katie Whitecotten) showing that Trace had won FIRST PLACE in the constellation??? Division. (I hope I'm spelling that correctly...I have no idea about tennis, nor the scoring or terms...haha)
We are so proud of him!

Here a blog, There a Blog, everywhere a Blog Blog

Heather Thomson started "Texarkana Parent" Magazine not too long ago, and I really enjoy reading it!! Copies can be found around town....or you can take a look online...even on Facebook. Check it out and give it a "Like" ;) My blog was featured on the sideline as a local blog... I don't think my blog even holds a candle to the other ones I've seen and follow...I'm not techno savvy to say the least. But I do enjoy being able to post things that in wouldn't necessarily otherwise scrapbook. I try to keep up with scrapbooks...but I'm behind....really behind. Maybe when I retire I can catch up. ;)

Preschool Campout?!

Yes! We found it necessary to camp out 18 hours to secure Paige's spot In the 2 year old class at Williams Day School for the Fall! .....and we succeeded!! She's IN!
Marci went to this school so we know firsthand how wonderful the teachers and curriculum really are! It is a very sought after program..and we knew it would be necessary to go the extra mile to get her a spot. I camped out for about 4 hours...Jamie is the hero that did the rest(especially the overnight part!)
I can't believe she will start "school" this fall. She will miss LaLa's house! La La has been such a big part of our lives from day one with the care of Paige! But she's growing up on us...toooo quickly!

**Tonja Hays was in on the overnight Campout at Williams also...they took this picture and sent it to me mid-night. Looks like they had the drinks and snacks covered ;)

Marci's Baptism

I hope to upload pics from my real camera to add to this post eventually. However, I know the busy-ness of my life right now and know that might not happen real soon. Fingers crossed...because I have sooo many good pictures of all of her family and friends that came to witness the special event...I think we filled up two whole pews ;). She hand picked everyone that she wanted to attend and just about all of them were able to be there! SHe was so happy to show the world that she had made the biggest decision of her let Jesus into her heart. We couldn't be more proud of our children for making that important choice of salvation!! To know they are secure in a heavenly realm is such an assurance as a parent!

We got Marci this book...and it helps her with a daily quiet far it's going great!! ;) She got a special necklace and bracelet too...I hope that she will never forget her special day!

School work

Trace entered an art competition at school this year...he received a 3 out of 4 score. We were proud of him!!

Marci is learning time and Jamie was helping with homework...I couldn't help but to snap this picture. It was a pretty intense moment....I'm not quite sure the picture was appreciated. Hahaha

Sweet Valentines

Love is in the air!! Marci made these valentines using stamps and had markers and such. She said it was hard work!! I love the saying.... I'm a sucker for puns ;). She passed them out to all of her classmates.

Lala have Paige a balloon with this basket full of candies...she has ha a blast with this balloon. It's still floating as of today(march 7!!)
