Happy Memorial Day!

Again, it's been a long time! Just thought I'd post a quick update to let you know what we've been up too since my last post.

In April, Michael turned 9 years old, it's so amazing to Ed and I at how fast the kids are growing up!! We went to Disneyland to celebrate Michael and had a great day. Michael is such a wonderful, determined boy and he really makes life in the Winslow house exciting!! We love you very much Mikey!!

Samantha was in the choir at church this last year and they had their final concert in May. She had so much fun and made so many great friends!! Sammie is gifted with a beautiful voice and we love watching and hearing her sing.

Sammie also finished up her softball season, which is a good thing! It was fun, but it's really neat when I see the kids decide on what there interest is and is not. I was so proud of her during the season when she knew this wasn't her thing but she gave her best effort during the whole season! Good-bye Softball!

Robert had a first, the first you don't want to have - a broken wrist! Of course, it's the height of baseball season and Rob has a broken wrist - bummer. The good thing is the day before he broke his wrist he tried out for a tournament team and did outstanding. What's cool is they had the draft and the coaches knew he broke his wrist and he was still drafted - Yeah! He gets his cast off this week then has three weeks before he can start playing. He's so anxious to get back in the game but Ed and I keep telling him to lay low so your not out for longer. We'll see how is goes!

Here's a pic from mother's day. I have been so blessed to have the most wonderful Mom and Grandma!

That's all the highlights in a nutshell. Ed and I are still both working and it's exhausting! I am really enjoying having a three day weekend, I really appreciate the time off, as does my house! This weekend I am also feeling very patriotic and am very thankful for our soldiers who are serving and fighting and those who have given their lives for my freedom. God bless America and our military!

Michael gave Sam some pink tulips after the show.As soon as the talent show was over we ran to Sam's softball game, in the meantime Robert was already there playing his game.Sammie is on the American Wolverines, in the pic she's on second. She really enjoys the girls on her team, that makes it really fun!Robert is on the National Dodgers this year. Having a great season so far!Michael had his game on Sunday, he's on the American Nationals this season. He is growing into such a great player and he is enjoying himself.

Winslow Sightings

It's been a long time since I've posted, three months to be exact!


I'll start with the most recent events and work my way back to catch you all up on what we've been up to.

Sammie was just awarded the citizenship award yesterday at school. As you all have heard me say before, this is the best award in my eyes because it speaks mostly of someones Character. We are so proud of Sam, her kindness and good example to those around her is being noticed by her teachers. I love it!

Last week Robert was inducted into the Honor Society at his Jr.High - WOOT WOOT!!!

Baseball & Softball are back in full swing so there are really no nights that we are at home, it's exhausting but we love it!! I'll post picks later in the season.

Ed and Sammie went to the father daughter dance at school & banquet at church all in the same weekend. They had so much fun!!

Why I've not been posting much is because of our next event. I'm working again.....I work for a company called Miracle Assistant. It's been a blessing but I'm having a hard time juggling our crazy, busy lives, work, and keeping up on housework. Ed has really been so helpful, but my house is a mess!!!

Fenway is the newest addition to our family. Robert bought this sweet little (BIG)golden mix with his own money. She is the cutest, smartest puppy I've ever met. We love her but not so much the mess she leaves behind ~ paper shreddings everywhere. Good thing she is so cute!!
Here's a movie of Fenway when she was smaller riding her favorite toy. This was the end of January.
