Celebrating Colby

This weekend Colby turned 5 years old. He's such a joy to our family. I can't believe five years have gone by so fast. We celebrated his birthday this weekend with a little cookout at our house with some family. Here's a little slideshow from our five years with our little man.

First Day of School


Last week, August 11th, was the first day of school for Dalton and Colby. It was special this year because both Dalton and Colby are now going to the same school. They get to ride with Shane to school every day. I think Colby feels like a big boy going to school with his older brother at Covenant this year. The year has gotten off to a great start, and both Dalton and Colby really love being at school and love their classes!

One Last Fling of the Summer

The last couple of weeks have been busy! Shane had football camp at Jekyll Island a couple of weeks ago for 5 days, and then we had to get ready for school starting back. Since Shane was going to be down at Jekyll for a while I thought I'd go down with the boys for a couple of days as well. I asked my mom if she wanted to come down with us as well. A couple of days before we were going to leave, my mom had a mini-stroke and was in the hospital having lots of tests run to try to determine what was going on. She stayed overnight and was cleared to leave and was thankfully able to still go with us on our trip. We were so glad she was able to come and we had a lot more fun with her along. While Shane was staying with his guys at the 4-H camp down at Jekyll Island, the 4 of us stayed at a motel nearby. We didn't see Shane a whole lot but he was able to meet up with us to go to the waterpark that is on Jekyll. We had a lot of fun going out to eat, playing a little miniature golf, sight-seeing a little at St. Simons, and playing in the water. It was fun to enjoy one last little trip before school started!!

We also had a fun time going to Driftwood Beach which is located on the north end of the island. My friend, Rebekah, got married at this area in front of this same tree. The boys had a blast climbing on it while my mom and I nervously watched.
