Memorial Day

We all made a quick stop at First Baptist Church this morning on our way to Walmart to get a few things for grilling. First Baptist Church always decorates their grounds with flags to celebrate Memorial Day, so we decided to stop by for a few pictures.

Play Ball

I took these three shots before we left the house for our ball games. Both Anna Kate and Emma played and did great last night. Anna Kate's team won again!
Tim coaches Anna Kate's team so I thought it would be neat to take their picture together, and this picture counts as Tim's birthday picture with the girls. Happy Birthday, Tim!

Anna Kate's Birthday Fun

Anna Kate has had a great birthday week. It all started with finding out Tuesday night that she made the New Hope Softball Team for this fall. She found out Wednesday she was exempt from all her exams, so Thursday she spent the day with my parents. They took her to Starkville to Umi's for lunch and then back to Columbus a treat at Smackers. Her team won its softball game Thursday night, and she got a homerun! She spent Friday with my sister-in-law Samantha who took her to La Fagota for lunch and then to Smackers.
Saturday was her actual birthday. Tim's birthday is today, so Emma and I took them both out to eat at Huck's Place. It was great as usual.
Afterwards, we came home to open presents.

She got a new Bible with her name engraved on the front. She enjoyed taking it to church today.
Of course, she got yogart from Smackers again. This girl is a Smackers-aholic! Three days in a row!

Anna Kate is a New Hope Lady Trojan

We are super proud of Anna Kate for trying out and making the New Hope Lady Trojan slow pitch softball team for this fall. She has worked so hard for this. Now she will have to work even harder. I can't begin to put into words what this means to me for her to make the team because I also was a New Hope Lady Trojan softball player, playing on the 1988 (State Runner-Up), 1989 (State Champions) and 1990 (State Champions) teams.

Emma's Choir Program

Our church's Children's Choir had their spring program last night.
 The program was really cute. They all did a great job.
Emma was one of the flag people.
