Tennis Champ

It was a busy weekend as usual with the majority of time spent driving back and forth to Lexington, SC for Griffin's tennis tournament. He played very well and ended up in the finals against his best friend Frederic. Unfortunately, Griffin lost but he and Frederic played doubles together and won the doubles championship. Now we have 2 more trophies to collect dust around here!

Playing in the sand

Everyone knows how much Brett loves to play in his pile of sand. Now that Whit is mobile Brett has introduced him to the art of digging and dumping sand. Unfortunately, Whit has discovered the art of eating sand all by himself. He is usually filthy by the time he is done but he just loves it so much that we tolerate the filth and very dirty clothes. Thankfully he has lots of outfits to change in to.

Football Fan

Griffin went to the USC game this weekend. It was a big game vs. LSU so Griff pulled out all the stops wearing all his Gamecock gear! The Cocks were leading at halftime but unfortunately ended up losing (nothing new!). He had fun despite the lose.

Science Projects!!!

To go along with the study of Newton's Laws of Motion, Carson had to construct her own amusement park with moving rides! Oh, how I love these projects. I think it is the teacher's way of getting back at parents because they have to deal with our children all day. We did manage to complete it and while not as high-tech as some of her classmates who cheated and bought the pre-made K-NEX amusement park kit, she did get her rides to move and got an "A" so I guess that's all that counts. However, as soon as she turned it in she was assigned another project! YEAH!!!!!

Soccer Girls

Carson and Reese are playing on the same team this fall to make life a little easier on Mom. They are having a great time and love to go to practice and games. Kevin has had to step in as "Coach" because our assigned coach had to go away on business for a month. The poor girls, now they have Kevin yelling at them from one side of the field and mom yelling from the other and we all know that I am a crazy "soccer mom"! So far their team is undefeated and both girls have gotten in on some goal scoring. We used to pay for goals but this year they have scored too many so now we do ice cream instead!

The State Fair

Carson's 5th grade class went to the fair for a field trip. They were there to "study" Newton's laws of motion and how they are demonstrated on rides- I wish I had a field trip like that when I was in school. luckily, Mom was able to go and enjoy the fun with Carson. We had fun going on the rides and Carson sampled all of the "healthy" food thet the fair has to offer. Thankfully, she didn't have anything before she got on the "Fireball" because I think it would have come back up! It was hot and by the end of the day we were sweaty and tired but fun was had by all!

Back to my blog

Well, I started this blog with the intention of keeping everyone up to date with our comings and goings and to post pics of the kiddos so everyone could see them on a more regular basis. Unfortunately, I didn't do so good. Well it is now my intention to post a new blog with some new pictures once a week or so (I hope). I have also tried to jazz it up a little with a playlist and some slideshows. I hope ya'll (I do live in SC you know) enjoy it!    Kelly

Working at the Car Wash

Brett taking Whit for a spin in the "Cozy Coupe" and giving the car a nice bath after all of those hard driveway miles. Really it was just an excuse for Brett to turn on the hose and test all the nozzle settings. His favorite is "Jet".
