Just Because

what's been going on

spring is always a busy time...end of the school year, birthdays, etc., so i just decided to do long post with a few pictures of what i've been up to:

in april, the acteens wrote scripture and various other things on the sidewalk in front of our church. we had a great time! this was an idea that i picked up in gatlinburg at connection (state acteens convention) in march...i went to a really great conference about some out of the box ideas to spread God's word!

toward the end of april i got to go to lexington and spend the weekend with melissa! we scrapbooked late into the night on friday and all day saturday...it was great!!

a couple of times a year my dad's side of the family has a birthday party for all of the folks who have birthdays in the spring or fall. a fun time to catch up and celebrate with each other...and always good food!!

melissa came to nashville for her birthday and we all went to the wolfgang puck restaurant in cool springs to celebrate...as usual we had a great time. i think this is the first time in about 4 years that all three of us have been together for all three of our birthdays (march, april, may).

of course the first weekend in may was the flood...thankfully my home was fine. the saturday that all the rain started, mom and i had gone to mema's to take her "to town" and it took me over 7 hours to get from mema's house back to mine. it was a long day, but an adventure none the less.
on may 15 i got to go see katie graduate...i was so glad to be a part of this special day. katie is the first one of my acteens that i have been with for the whole time she was in youth (7th-12th grade). congratulations, katie!!
one sunday, when kim was able to bring clinton home from st. jude i got to hang out with these cuties... this is jordan (now 17) rockin' out.

this is elizabeth (aka bitses), jordan, clinton and max's cousin.

mr. max...about to be 3...becoming so handsome!!

clinton...the wonderboy! those glasses, that smile...it's almost too much!!
