~A Visit From My Sister~

Wow! It has now been over 1 1/2 months since I last posted on either of my blogs. I told you thing were about to get crazy busy... but I didn't know it had already been 1 1/2 months!

Since we moved to Savannah we have had some (friends and family) stay with us in our home. 
My sister came for 5 days with her two boys a few weeks ago. We had alot of fun visiting, swimming, talking, eating, and letting the boys play while she was here. I was sad to see her go but I know she was ready to be back home with her hubby who didn't get to make that trip with her.
Then last week one of my friends came with her little boy to visit us for a couple of days.We both decided that next time she has to stay longer but I will honestly take any length of visit we get!! 

As for what is going on with us right now...........well........
1.) Ethan is playing soccer-I'll post a picture of him soon 
 2.) Tucker is saying some words--Sometimes it all sounds the same but we are making progress. 
3.) Tucker no longer drinks from a bottle.. Which was a huge milestone...
4.) I am the new children's director at our church
Which I am super excited about!! I can not wait for the new Sunday school year to start... Pray for us! It starts this Sunday! 
So since my friend left last Wednesday I have been preparing for a teachers Sunday school informational dinner at our home this past Friday night and then I also did a training class for the ladies last night at our home. So I have been pretty busy getting all that organized.
5.) And we are finally going on vacation soon---We are going to Destin, Fl.!! This will be our first vacation with both the boys ever!! I will have to let you know how they do. I am sure they will have a blast because they love the beach and the sand so I'm sure they will be in digging heaven!
This will also be the first time ever that we have to board our dog. She is going to hate it and probably won't eat at all while we are gone so I am a little worried about that. But she might surprise me, who knows!
6.) Ethan starts school--SOON
I am homeschooling him this year and I am so not prepared for this. I am glad I am writing about it though, b/c I just remembered I need to go order his curriculum for the year....ugghhh, another thing to add to my list of things to do. I decided to start him a little later then normal b/c he already knows most of the things he should know for K-4, so I am not rushing into this with him. Later in the year I will incorporate k-5 and 1st grade stuff with him but as for now we are taking it slowly. I guess I need to get more motivated as well, which I am hoping will happen in the next week or so!

Since I shared a little bit about what's been going on I wanted to share with you some pictures from my sisters visit. 
The first night they were there Gus took the boys down to the park. This is how he brought them back!! Sweaty, hot, and dirty but they absolutely had a blast.
On our walk home the boys found a bug on the tree...They wanted me to take a picture of it, obviously...But who spotted this bug in the first place?
Just having fun rocking in the chairs
The next set of pictures were taken at River Street where we had dinner at Huey's and then we took some pictures afterwards.
The much enjoyed sweet potato fries
Yes, they were hanging on this dirty pole. What can I say?

Sweet Tucker.. It was getting dark at this point but I wanted you to see how big he is getting!

Revelation 4:11

"You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they were created
and have their being."
