Happy Fall Ya’ll

I babysat my friends little kiddos the other day. Before I picked Gav up from preschool, we stopped in at the park next to it, and I threw a handful of leaves into my car. We came up with this. They are so stinkin cute.

Fixer Man

Gav has had some good one liners lately.

Our water heater was broken and we had a “fixer man” come and take care of it. When he walked into our utility room, Gav said (pretty loudly), “Mom, mustaches are not white. They are black!”

Let’s hope he had a good sense of humor.


I was trying to get Gav to go potty before bed. This kid can hold it for so long. I had him standing next to the potty and was pretty much shouting, “Just go!” He looked up at me and said, “Mom, I’m just a little bit nervous.”

School Art Projects




These were some of Gav’s first school art projects. My favorite is the face. He’d never done that before and always has little patience for letters and other things. School seems to have changed that and we are having fun making crafts and doing art at home now too.

Young Womens


I’ve been teaching “Sunday school” to the 14 & 15 year old girls at our church for the last two years. I really enjoyed the opportunity I had to teach them and get to know them. I’m pretty sad about being switched to a new project but glad that someone good filled my shoes. They came and chalked my driveway the other day. Gav was so excited when he woke up the next morning and saw all the things they drew.
