Well....my parents are moving! Many of you may already know this, but I wanted to share it for those that do not. My dad has accepted a call to Plantersville Baptist Church in Plantersville Alabama. I am excited for them and so so so sad for us. I realize how I have taken for granted their presence in my life. They have always been there. I moved here and started my life here because they were here. I'vve never chosen a church on my on it's been because of my parents. I've not sat under the teachings of any other preacher in almost 20 years! My daddy is a wonderful man of God who is going to complete a mission elsewhere. My mom has always taught along beside him. My mom is like a safe. Whatever you tell her is not going to be repeated and she will council you on how your feeling and how God wants you to react no matter who you are.

Just the other day I called my parents to learn how to make gravy. We have this same conversation EVERY time I try to make gravy and it never turns out. But Mama offered to come up here and show me how. An offer that won't be made in a week. My daddy comes up here and works in the garden and sees the boys EVERY day! Not anymore. As I type this there are tears in my eyes. I will miss my parents TREMENDOUSLY!! I am so thankful for their presence in my life and so are my boys. They have cried as well, but the absence of their grandparents will grow obvious is the everyday things around here. My heart is heavy and I try to deal by putting it out of my mind. Please pray for us. Pray for my parents as they excitedly start this new endeavor and pray for my boys that they will get used to our new normal.

I love you mama and daddy and you are already missed!

These are a few shots from this weekend. I just thought the combo of them was quite striking. There is no doubt that these precious children belong to this wonderful man! Everyone always says they look just like my husband and here they absolutely do!

Thank you God for my family. I am blessed to be a part of their lives.

Well we've been busy here! Dalton graduated kindergarten and will be moving to Mrs. Stockdale's room for first grade. We are excited for him but at the same time I'm a bit sad. These days are passing way too quickly and I can see him graduating high school already! Dylan is enjoying his time out of school. We have done Bible School all this week so we haven't really made any trips well except one to see my sisters and neices and nephews in Gadsden. We will be making more of those trips as soon as we can. We are scheduled to go to the beach in July but if BP doesn't get their act together no one will be making the trip.
Uncle Larry is doing much better, thank for all of the prayers. He is at home and recovering nicely. Our God is a God of miracles!!
Mama has been doing good, but she suffered another episode this week. She just hurts everywhere all the time so she didn't get out of bed for 2 whole days. This can't be good for your body or your mind. I would hate being cooped up, she went to the ER for a shot of steroids and is doing much better. She has returned to work let's pray that this feeling good lasts for a long time. Rather than hope, lets' pray that it lasts.
Hope you all are doing good. Aunt Naomi we got the pics from y'alls surprise visit and they are precious. I'm so glad yall came and hope we get to see you again soon. We'll be down sometime in July! Love yall!
