First Day of School

We'll here we go! My little girl started preschool this week. She had
absolutely no hesitation and continued to comfort Daddy
that she would only be right down the street.
She had fun, of course, and wants to go every day, but
I think two days a week is plenty!

Shelby Dance

Shelby is taking a dance class this summer. It is very fun and cute. She is very proud of herself in this class. The first class, she had a big smile on her face and would give me a thumbs up sign every few minutes.

Beach Pics

Pardon the smudge on the camera! We had a beach day this month. Both kids loved the sand of course. Shelby much less afraid of the water this time. We felt the earthquake while there.
This is a picture of the kids swimming in the sand.
Much less scary than swimming in the water apparently.

Our Sweet Suzie

Suzie on her birthday

I can't imagine that anyone is reading this blog and has not already heard about my sweet niece, Suzie Lorraine Sanderson, born 12 weeks early on July 18th. I still wanted to do a tribute page to her because we love her and she occupies so many of our thoughts and prayers.

What a trial this has been. I can tell you that God has truly strengthened my faith as I watch how Steph and Kyle handle this. They are so strong, though only in the Lord. God has brought our Suzie through many ups and downs and she is now almost one month old and stable. We have no idea what God has planned for her life, but we know she is a miracle and God will continue to get the glory from whatever lies ahead.

If, by chance, you haven't read her story visit my sister's blog:
