Sunday Evening

Abby and I are tired of the wet. It has rained almost everyday for the past two weeks. There was one random day of 90 degrees. The rain has prevented many fun activities that we have had planned. Last weekend we were supposed to have a kick ball tournament, but it got rained out. We did however go over to Ray's, our neighbors, and play darts. The tournament is scheduled for November 1st. I will be in Greensboro for the states Special Education conference.
School has been crazy busy, almost everyday there has been a meeting or training of some sort. All I can really say is that I miss elementary school more than I thought I ever would. Each day I come home and work towards my masters. 13 more weeks and I will be officially done!
Soccer season is upon us in the great town of Cherryville. Once God realized that children can't play soccer in thunderstorms the season will get underway. Silly God... Josh will be spending Monday, Thursday, and Saturdays at the park with all the children. This is his second year in charge of soccer and he is in the grove.

Josh has a different way of dealing with the weather

A September Weekend

Our weekend was packed with excitement. Ray had a big block party. We played horse shoes, washers, ping-pong, corn hole, and darts. Seven Boston buts were cooked for the event.

Our day was filled with lawn games and laughter

Josh is especially happy Ray invested in a Porto potty for the day

Even Shelby had a good time

Mike took Josh and I to the Panthers vs. Eagles game. Due to recent events with Micheal Vick, Abby decided to stay home. Instead she watched the Vikings game with Ray and ate hot dogs.

We found out later that Josh should not have mocked Mike's corn hole abilities

Josh has never met a stranger!

Even though we enjoyed the panthers game we know who our REAL teams are!

The stadium stayed full for the first quarter until the fans realized that we were going to get whooped. The game ended with a 10-38 loss.

What a busy Weekend!

It is my job to protect my daddy and mama from this big outdoors.

Our tent village

Abby will be jealous

Good Morning sunshine!

While on Table Rock the family takes a break from reality

Heather and Arden decided to quit their day jobs to open up a sandwich shop called "Num Nums"

Shovel took some time to eat pizza and drink a nice cold beer before starting to play with Abby again.

But Abby's favorite part of the trip was snuggling with Heather.
