Kase is 7 months

Oh Kase, how did you turn 7 months so quickly? Time is flying by!!
We are so happy to have you in our lives. 

You sit up so well now. You are rarely upset and just enjoy watching the boys. You are very content with your toys. 

Your brothers love you very much! Sometimes they even fight over you. 

We have started to teach you the word NO. Like chewing on the remote. You were told NO and this is what you did :)

You are a HUGE eater! I am sure you will be like Karson. You live to eat. 

You had your first popscicle this month and your first swim in the pool. 

We are heading out for camping and you will just tag along. We are so excited you are with us. 

I have caught up with your baby book!! But still haven't taken your 7 month picture. I am always behind it seems. 

We love you so much Kase Garrett!

End of the school year

I can not believe we are closing another year of school. Some moments it felt like it would never reach the end, and some days I could not believe it was the end of the day so fast. 

My boys had great years.

 Karson had a great year in 1st grade. He learned to love reading even more. He ended his year by taking a test to find his reading level. He scored on a 4th grade reading level. We are so proud of his hard work! He received many awards including a PE award, having 82 AR points, finishing his word folder, library reading awards, and a movie Star award because he played the lead role in a movie that his class made. We are beyond proud. 

Kipton too had a great year in Kindergarten. He had a program where he was the stink bug and had 3 lines. He was a great performer. He also got several awards like the Math award, Reading award, an AR award, and he was Bison of the Month for Confidence. 

We are so proud of him! Here he is with his KG teacher Mrs. Bowens. 

Towards the end of the year he started reading to the higher grade students at the end of the day. He beamed! He loved it and so did they.

Both boys had Mrs. Bowens for KG. She has been amazing and I just cried and cried when we told her goodbye. She knew exactly what both of my boys needed both years. 

We made her promise us she will not retire until she has baby Kase in 5 years. 

Thankful for good Christian teachers. 

Let summer begin!!!

Marriage and THE LOVE DARE

I received a wonderful gift from a good friend of mine. My birthday was last week, and she gave me a copy of "The Love Dare" written by Kendrick.
I am excited to get started into the book. I have watched the movie Fireproof and it shares how the love dare works. However, I think there is a big difference in watching it in a movie, and actually doing it in your own marriage.
I am starting the LOVE DARE today. (5/11/16)

Have any of my fellow blogging friends worked through this bible study?
Has it helped your marriage?
It doesn't have to be that your marriage is in bad shape. This can just be a lift to you and your spouse. I encourage you all to give it a try.
Our 8 year wedding anniversary is coming up in May.
I thought this would a wonderful time to invest some new ideas.
