The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

Random Thoughts

I love Spotify! If you haven’t heard of it, it is a live music streaming service, almost like Pandora. I think it is better than Pandora though, because with Spotify you can create your own playlist, with specific songs. My children will not be able to get away from my love of such a wide variety of music. It is almost comical.

The boys are both still pretty excited about school. Reese is being typical Reese, and having trouble being good during nap time. I often ask him to show me how he is supposed to be during nap time. He will then lay still and close his eyes. How hard is that? I suppose to an active 5 year old, it can be torture.

I have introduced my children to The Waltons. Brooks calls the show “John Boy.” The fact that I am enjoying this old classic is funny because when I was younger, I didn’t think I would like it. I guess at the time I thought it wasn’t cool enough! Now I watch this show and long for a simpler time in life. Although, they seemed to have a hard time making ends meet. So did those Baldwin sisters ever figure out that their “recipe” was actually whiskey?

Brent and I are going to be the new coordinators for VBS at our church next year. The former coordinators have done such a great job with it; I don’t know how we will ever live up to it. I am already brainstorming for ideas for next year! I guess it is never too early.

You know college football starts this week! I hope along with that, the cooler weather will begin to return to our area as well.

Have a great week and WAR EAGLE!

First Day of School!

This past Wednesday the boys began school. They were both excited and looking for a change. When I went to wake up the boys that morning, Brooks was already dressed, shoes on, and he was fixing his belt. I guess that means he was ready to go. Reese was harder to wake up, but still just as excited.

It is becoming a tradition for us to walk them into school each year.
Reese went right to his new locker and put his things in.
Here is Reese with his teacher. We love Mrs. K.
Brooks was ready to begin his work!
I can't wait to see what this year brings!
