Sweet memories

Today one of my dearest friends leaves the US to return to her foreign field.  I am filled with such thankfulness for the weekend I spent with her this summer in SD.  Those memories are a treasure for us both!  This was my 40th birthday present from my boys.  I can hardly think of a better gift. 

I'll never forget our quick phone call last night & getting to sing a hymn with the boys just for her.

LegoFest Austin - 2015

Several years ago, we went to the LegoFest event in Austin.  It was tons of fun for all & the boys have been wanting to do it again.  This year the event came back to Austin on the weekend of Trevin's birthday.  This was a perfect chance to start his 6th birthday celebration & enjoy a fun event together.  We rode the metro into Austin with Auntie Amy & Malia.  It was a relaxing 45 minute ride without the hassle of Friday night traffic.  We had a fabulous evening together & the boys really enjoyed seeing the new things that the LEGO company presented this time.


It was a big day for this sweet boy.  He had been looking forward to starting school all summer long.  But when summer was winding down, he changed his tune!  We had big discussions about how he was going to miss mommy.  We had long talks about growing up & going to school with Benjamin.  All in all, the first day was a success!
