Rough Run

If you were on Roxie Drive this morning around 6:30 am and you saw a girl literally bust it and slide across the ground, it wasn't me! :)

Ok, well, truthfully, it was. I was just humming along, praying and thinking, and the next thing I know I am flying in the air. I had NO time to respond. My whole body slid on the ground. Both of my knees are banged up and bleeding as well as both of my hands. (Is there anything worse than the sting of hands being scraped on concrete?) My stomach and my right thigh is all scraped up too. I hopped up really fast because I was so embarrassed. Of course, I did the look around to see if anyone saw me. I was really hurting, blood was running down my knee but I was so flustered that I just starting running again so I could hurry up and get home. I was about half a mile from my house so I just hobbled home and prayed that I wouldn't see anyone.

I looked like a hot mess, let me tell you. Now I wish that I had just slept late and been lazy! I am feeling better now but I am just going to be really sore!

Hot, Hot Handy Run


Today was the W.C. Handy 5K run. My dad and I toughed out the heat and headed downtown for the race. We were both able to score our personal best times so we were pretty happy, especially considering the heat. There were lots of runners and it was tons of fun...

Back to Where it all began....

Chad and I love to go to the beach and visit Panama City Beach. We were so lucky after we got married to get to move there and live so we love to go back and visit. We just drive up and down the roads and "remember when..."







Out of the 100 I took, these are the best three. He was not into pictures that night.





Our unit came with a golf cart and Parker loved it. Chad is now convinced that we need to to buy a golf cart to ride around the neighborhood.


Parker wasn't too sure about the ocean at first.


My boys!



It was a wonderful week!

What a great summer we've had so far. I can't believe that it's already July. My principal sent out an email today saying that the floors are done on my hall so we can get back in our classrooms. Normally, I would start feeling the urge to get in my classroom about right now. BUT, this year, that's not the case! I will go up there some though to help Shea.... (My sister in law is transferring from Weeden to my classroom while I'm gone!)

Here are some fun pictures from the summer!

Frost Bite was a must before the fireworks! Notice how excited Parker was to have his picture made.

Parker and his best buddy, Max.


4th of July celebration at Chad's Aunt Kathy's house. "The kids table" Parker literally one at one potato chip.... Ahhh...the joys of picky eaters....


Hmmm... Let me think about what I can get into next....

We have loved the cooler weather these past few evenings. We took Parker up to the great new playground at our church. He loves the slide.


More fun on the slide.


I was so lucky to get to babysit sweet Addison last week. My cousin Mark and his sweet wife, Leah have a PRECIOUS little girl named Addison. We are just in LOVE with her. We got to babysit for the day and I must say that it wasn't as hard as I thought. (But I must admit that my mom was there for part of the day so I guess that it wasn't a true test...) Parker did great. He wasnt' jealous of me holding Addison at all but it was another story when my mom or Parker's "Gee" held her. He did not like it at all. He put his hand on Addison and said "moose." That is his word for move. Parker adores his Gee.

A wagon ride was a must that morning!


Fun at Miami Ice... Parker is a nasty mess but he had fun!


Parker and "Anna" He ADORES her!!

Fun with the water hose. I must say the kid is such a little redneck. He loves to be outside "neck neck" (no clothes) and squirting things with the water hose.

Gotta water the flowers!

He is also obsessed with bubbles. My mom bought him a bubble blower and it blows lots and lots of bubbles... He loves it. You can't really see his excitement in this picture but he loves them!

Girls Beach Trip


I was so lucky last week to get to go to the beach with some of my dearest girlfriends... I have been blessed with some amazing friends, but my friends from college are true friendships that I will have for the rest of my life. Sara, Katy, Raycheal, and Melissa are all so precious to me and I can't imagine my life without them. They are all lead such amazing lives and I am proud to have them as my girlfriends.
