She Made It!




Cheerleading tryouts were Friday! Lakyn and her friends worked so hard this week getting ready and they all did a great job! Lakyn had to leave right after tryouts to go on a cruise with Aunt Cathy, Hannah, and Uncle Tom. She did not have time to wait around to check the list, but I called her as soon as I saw the list. She was soooo excited that she made it and that all her friends made it to. She is now celebrating in Cancun - LUCKY GIRL! I am very proud of all her hard work! GOOD JOB GIRLS!

Easter Sunday




We had a great Easter! We went to church with MawMaw and then home for a GREAT lunch cooked by my sweet husband. Kyle, Lakyn and I went to play tennis while Mark, Byne and Dalton went to practice baseball. It was a great day to play outside. We were so excited to have all four children home for this Easter. That is the first time they have all been home at the same time in a long while. It was a GREAT day! :)

Tennis with the Family





We went to play tennis today and had a GREAT time! Byne did beat me AGAIN, but it was still fun! Please take notice of his intense celebration at the victory in the third picture (playing the air guitar on his racket)! More pictures on the flickr site! Lakyn is getting much better - I am impressed with her progress. Kyle came and played in jeans??? It was a beautiful day!

Troy vs Auburn Game



Troy played Auburn on Tuesday evening. It was a great game, but not the desired outcome. Troy lost 6 to 4. We will play Auburn again in Auburn on April 29th. Hopefully we will beat them next time! Byne had a great cheering section for this game (MawMaw, Mema, Pops, Aunt Kay, Uncle Jerry, the Hughes, the Johnsons, Cayla, Lakyn, me and Mark), but he did not get to play. Lakyn is so funny - she does not attend the games to watch baseball, but she really was ready to see Byne. She asked all throughout the game, "We will go eat with Byne after the game, won't we!" She was excited to get to spend some time with him. Distance makes the heart grow fonder, even between brothers and sisters. Byne has another game this evening, so back to Troy!

Dalton's 16th Birthday!




Dalton turned 16 on March 11th. I took a personal day off of work so we could spend the whole day together and go get his license. We arrived at the Prattville DMV at 8:00 only to find out that we were number 6 on the list. Guess what? They only take 5! We then hurried to Montgomery, because Mom was on a mission. We went in and got our number (17) and sat for about 45 minutes. They then announced that it was raining and no more road tests for the day! Dalton and I were both disappointed, but nothing breakfast from Chappy's Deli could not fix :)! We went to see Mema and then I took Dalton to school for baseball practice after asking his Dad to take him for the test again the next morning. Mom could not take any more time off of work! He passed the test this morning and was so excited! He drove to church tonight and made it home safe and sound. As his Mom, I am excited for him, but at the same time very nervous. Letting go is hard to do! Happy Sweet sixteen my sweet, sweet baby boy. Momma loves you!!

Dalton's Game





Camryn and Michele came to Dalton's game in Luverne on Monday! It was so good to see them again. Camryn is getting so big and Michele is 4 months pregnant. Camryn kept saying, "I am watching Dalton hit the ball, and catch the ball, and throw the ball - where is Lakyn!" She just talks, talks, talks and is sooo cute! She loves that Dalton and was very sad that Lakyn did not come to see her!

I miss seeing them everyday!

Troy/Bama Game






We went to the Troy/Bama game at the Biscuit's stadium on Tuesday evening. Aunt Kay braved the cold weather most of the game, but here she is enjoying the warmth of the box. My Dad has a box through his work and they let us use it for the game. It was so nice! The WHOLE family came and several friends. Emilie and Jason came, JP came with Dalton and of course Cayla was there! We were even graced with Allison's presence (Kyle's girlfriend). Byne did not play, but the Trojans did win :)! It was a good time had by all! Thanks for getting us the box Dad - I still owe you that money - I have not forgotten! Ha Ha! Love you!

Wacky Wednesday




It was Wacky Wednesday at the school today and Kyle went all out. He looked very wacky! Allie and I fixed our hair alike - with bows that did not match. It was a fun day!

Read Across America at CES


We are having the greatest time at work this week. It is Read Across America and we always have tons of fun activities to encourage the children to read. Kyle dressed up like The Cat in the Hat for us and he did a fantastic job! The children are so impressed with him and he seems to really enjoy coming to the school everday - and I especially enjoy that I get to see him everyday!

Baseball Season has Started!



I love every minute of baseball season, but it is exhausting. Byne is playing for Troy again this year and Dalton is playing at PCA. We have games constantly and I do not like to miss a game! Mark and I are on different sides of the state trying to cover both of the boys games. I am constantly calling him to see how Byne's team is doing and he is calling me to see how Dalton's team is doing. We will be able to go together tomorrow to Byne's game in Dothan. Byne is playing first base and will be hitting this year - and we hope he will play tomorrow. We are looking forward to the Troy v/s Alabama game at the Biscuits stadium on Tuesday evening.
Dalton is playing second base for PCA and is having a great time. I have become the unofficial photographer for PCA - I have already taken 119 pictures in only 4 games. PCA is 3-1 so far this season - they have done real well! I will not be able to blog as much, because I will be spending my life at some ball park somewhere - but I will try to keep you all updated. Although I complain about being exhausted from all the games, I would not change a thing (except that I would like to be able to be in two places at once). I love watching my boys play a game that they love! What a fantastic way to enjoy Spring!
