What we've been up to this week

This week has been pretty busy with work and now activities for Charli Beth. Thursday was Charli's first ballet class, although I wasn't able to take and photos because the studio didn't have her Leotard, shoes and tights in. Although, as soon as she started her class the lady brought her shoes and leotard over to me, which wasn't the greatest timing since I couldn't dress her. She did very good for her first class and since she had never been around dancers before. Her class is 3-4 year olds and called "Just movin' " and she is the youngest in the class. I also noticed that a lot of the other girls have sisters that they have watched grow up in ballet classes. She did really good, but being the youngest and not having the best attention span in the world, she got a little shy a couple of times. Yes, I seen her face turn red and she frowned so big at me a couple of times. My heart just melted for her, and I could fell tears coming on, but I knew it was best for her to just conitnue on with the instructors help. I promise to take pictures before we head to class this week! I just now after she warms up to everyone there, she is going to love it! She's already asked me a couple of times when we are going back.

Thursday afternoon, my friend Wendy and her husband Randy brough baby Andrew Preston by to meet our family for the first time. Wendy was a very close friend to my sister and I growing up, until I moved to the next town over. Her husband is fixing to deploy to Iraq again for the second time at the end of September or October, so she is moving back home. I plan to help spoil Andrew to pieces along with his grandparents and hopefully be able to become great friends w/ Wendy again. They are such sweet people and I'm so excited for them to move back!

I've never noticed how shy Charli Beth can get until this past week. Watching her around Andrew was the sweetest and most adorable thing ever. Her cheeks would turn red again and she would just smile non-stop, I think you can see in the last picture how pink her cheeks are! She loves babies, and after they left every baby she played with or seen had to be a boy like Andrew.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
