First day of school 2014!


Summer is over and school has started back!!  Rilyn is in 5th, Ella in 3rd, and Asher in 1st!  We pray that they would be salt and light to their friends and teachers at school!

Asher’s August

Asher had quite an August! I felt it time for an update on my little man! He will always be my baby, and moments like last night tug at my heart strings. I went into his room after James put him to bed, and he was sniffling. I asked him what was wrong, and he said, “I just love you SO MUCH!” Wow, that made this momma’s heart jump! He still wants me to sing “Jesus Love Me” and “Go To Sleep” every night, and I gladly will for as long as he lets me!
Asher started off August with a soccer camp! James is coaching Asher’s soccer team for the 4th season this fall and we wanted to give him so extra skill training before the season starts! He went to the British Soccer School of Excellence and he loved it!

At the end of the week, the coaches gave out one award to the player, (out of 10 kids), that had the best attitude. Asher won! He received a certificate and a new soccer ball!

So proud of this guy!

James also took Asher and his friends to another soccer skill training. What better way to celebrate learning soccer than ice cream? 🙂

One big skill Asher learned in August was to ride his bike without training wheels! Yay!!

Go Asher!

Asher got to go on two back to school dates this month. With daddy he went to a huge indoor playground, and with mommy he painted a plate of course-just like last year!)

Grandpa doesn’t work on Mondays now, and he took the time this month to go a special date with each grand child. Asher spent the night at Grandpa’s, and they did lots of Star Wars Lego kits together and swam!


His summer ended with mommy reading him a special book…
