Beach Photo Shoot...OH MY!!!!

So...We have tried the whole professional photographer thing to no avail. I think I must have the most difficult children in the world to photograph! We decided to try a few ourselves since we live right in one the most beautiful natural settings. These are some of the shots...

We were able to get some cute pictures, but any photographer in his right mind would have long since given up...

And missed the opportunity for my favorite shot of the afternoon...

Being Thankful!!

These are just some pictures of the boys enjoying Mimi and Papa's pool on Mother's Day. I think sometimes I get so busy thinking of what we "have to do tonight" that I forget to slow down and enjoy. Between school programs, baseball games, practices, and the everyday stuff, I feel like there is not enough time in the week. I just have to keep reminding myself to slow down and enjoy these moments that make up our life. I was looking at these pictures and also the pics from Will's game and realize how much I do have to be thankful for! I just need to take time to enjoy life the way the boys do!! I am so proud of my boys and just wanted to post some of these pics for everyone to see!

Congratulations Emily and John!!!

We are so proud of our graduates!! Not cum laude but OH MY LAWDIE!!!

Field Trip to Sea Island Stables

Will's class took a field trip to the new Sea Island Stables. They learned a lot of general information about caring for horses. They got to tour each of the barns and also see what they eat and how to keep them healthy. The boys were very excited to see a new addition to the stables...a three foot alligator named Steve! After touring the stables, the kids pretended to be horses and spent some time jumping the jumps. They also had guides that led them through games and relays. Everyone enjoyed themselves and it was a treat to get to see the new stables!

John McLean came home and the boys just LOVE him! I was very surprised how protective Will was. He is such a good guardian angel!!! Welcome home Wood Family...
