Summer is Here!

The kids finished up school this past week.  It was a great year for both of them and we will miss our teachers so much!  McKenzie is now officially a freshman in high school and Matt a fourth grader! How did this happen?! We are looking forward to a relaxing, nice summer filled with lots to do. Orange Beach is right around the corner in July, so can't wait for that. Due to work conflicts with David, we have to go later this summer but it will be totally worth it once we get there.

The past few weeks have been really busy with end of the year activities. McKenzie tried out and made the high school show choir Visions under the direction of Jenni Winter. She is super excited about this opportunity.  She has been dreaming of being in it for years.  It is a lot of hard work but we believe it will make her high school years special. She had three days of tryouts. It was a lot of pressure but she hung in there. The night she found out she made it, the whole neighborhood could probably hear her screaming.  Here is a picture of her after I picked her up from the final day of tryouts.

Matt has been doing a lot of this lately...playing golf and he loves it! Back in April he began lessons with Ernie Petty. He is really enjoying it. Matt is set to play in his first tournament in Pontotoc June, 1st. Its the Coca Cola Junior Tour.  For his age division, the daddies get to be the caddie so David is so excited to get to do this with him.

Memorial Day is coming up Monday, so I got my front porch all fixed up for the holiday. I found this cute wreath at Big Lots and added the ribbon that I found at Dollar Tree. I brought out the cushions for the furniture and planted a few containers and now set for summer. Here are a few pictures...
