My friend Andrea tagged me two weeks ago with the 4X4 Challenge. I had to go through my photos and go to my 4th folder and post the 4th picture. I love this challenge because it takes you back in time. This is Michael and Robert with his very best friend during kindergarten and first grade, Zachary Roberts. I love this photo and the memories it holds!! Zach and his family were moving to Hong Kong a week or two later after this picture was taken. It was so hard to see Robert say goodbye to his best bud, at the same time I had a hard time saying goodbye to Suzy (Zach's mom) who had become my very dear friend. I miss those days and wish we lived closer longer!! Note to self: Cherish those around you and don't let life get so busy that your friends pass though without knowing how important they truly are! I had to include the 4x2 pic. also because it has all the kids in it Sammie, Zach, Robert, Michael and Joel (baby Daniel not pictured).
I can't believe it's only been 13 years, I don't really remember my life without you in it! I love you Ed and am very thankful for you! Thank you for being a wonderful husband, father and provider for our family. We are truly blessed! XOXO
Every year Ed takes Sammie to the Father/Daughter banquet at church. This is a night that they both look forward to and really enjoy! Sammie loves getting dressed up, doesn't she look so grown up!!! They had a blast and to prove that it was a true date they both came home with Starbucks, I was a little envious!
I am so excited that Chris is back from Iraq. Jen was so strong while he was gone! I stole these pics from her facebook because they made me cry, sweet happy tears. I love seeing Chris back home safe and sound with Jen and the boys. Thanks Chris for how you honor and serve our country!!
Life has been going by fast. Baseball is in full swing! Ed is Managing Michael's Pinto team this year, which is going to be a lot of fun. Michael is so excited to have his Dad be the "coach." I am helping out with the team parent responsibilities with Sammie's help too, and Robert is helping the team with their practices and sharing his expertise. It's a family affair for the Yankees and we are all so excited to have a great season! Robert is playing for the Twins this season, he was drafted by his travel ball coach along with three others from his SC Fury team. This season looks to be a very fun and competitive time - Love it!! Sammie is busy with preparing for her performance in the schools annual talent show. She has been singing in it every year and is so gifted! I love to hear her sing, she has a beautiful voice!!
I love Jesus, my hubby Ed, & three wonderful kids. I thought this blog would be a great way to keep in touch with friends and family. Life goes by so fast and I want to remember whats happening today. Before I know it my kids will be grown and this is a way for me to keep my memories. I'm not a scrapbooker but now you can call me a scrapblogger!
