Basketball season

In the fall the two older boys played football with pads, tackling etc. Now it is basketball season and all three of the boys are playing. It is so fun to watch them play and see how much they have learned. Isaiah of course because he is just in kindergarten is really fun to watch. Each player wears a colored arm band so they can match the same color arm band with a player on the other team. This is who they will "guard". Right. So far they have bumped their arms band together like they were some kind of super hero, they have had group hugs and lots of nose picking. Ugh!  And like Jonah, Isaiah doesn't really run down the court but kind of jumps and bounces. Last year Jonah would gallop. Guess we are going to have to teach these kids how to run but it sure is cute to watch them bounce.
 
 Have no idea what these boys are looking at. Must be something really good.

I am so behind!!!!!

I can't believe I have gone this long without blogging and mainly posting pictures. So here goes. Randomness at its best...….

Well that was written in November and here is January. I have never gone this long without posting pictures. Don't know why except I have been in kind of a slump. I have lots of pictures but no desire to post anything. Also I am having trouble getting the pictures from my phone to my computer without uploading all of my thousands of pictures all at once. Hopefully I will finally figure it out and start posting again. But saying all of that, I am just going to start with the beginning of the month of January...….first hiking some with light jackets and some with shorts and tank tops.
 
then the snow a few days later....
 
 
 
More to come.

Our Family

Going to be posting some more vacation pictures but seems like our vacations get crazier every year. I guess that's why Jessica bought a pillow for her home that says "My family must be God's favorite sitcom." Someday I'm going to look back at all our vacations and see what was going on in them but for now I am posting pictures before and after the tropical storm/hurricane. First off is our annual up before daylight, let's go picture of the kids. Yes we are those people that leave in the middle of the night.
 Next we had to get our "year" picture. Lily wouldn't get in the picture, oh well.
 Then each boy had to write his name in the same. I love it.
They were down on the beach almost as soon as we got everything unloaded. These kids love the sand and beach.
Jenny fixed each of the kids a shark tooth digging kit complete with great white shark teeth and megaladon shark teeth. Some were real and some she made but you really couldn't tell the difference. As you can see from their expressions, they loved it. 
 And were very serious about finding these teeth.
As you can see, the first couple of days it was stormy, even before "Gordon" came ashore but at the same time a lot of the rain before hand stayed way out in the ocean.
 We did have a visitor.
 The waves were pretty big before the storm.
 We love the birds
