More Disney Fun

This was a vacation to remember for sure. From the 3 o'clock parade at the magic kingdom, thunder mountain (Ana mei knows no fear!), splash mountain, the characters, to buzz light year ride. Epcot was fun too - we especially enjoyed China and the acrobat show. Hollywood studios was a big hit with Josiah with Star Wars and Indiana Jones. Animal kingdom was our last stop and although it was good too, we were tired and ready to call it a week!

StayCation time!

So it's been since the wedding, that was 12 years ago! Ed's brother's family and sister's family (minus Danelle : -( all came to hang out for a week this summer. We even got to spend time with little Sarah Lynn. Pat, Kelly, and Joshua were blessed to have her in their family for a few months before she went to live with her birth grandma. It was a joy to have gotten to know her. She will be missed and will always be in our hearts! It was so great for Ed to get to spend time with his siblings. And in addition, we got to be a part of Violet getting proposed to by long time boyfriend, now fiance, James. Welcome to the family James!

July 4th Celebration

We spent July 4th with Uncle Mark and Aunt Donna and cousin Jonathan. (That's my brother, Mark). They live on top of a mountain in East TN. There house is their dream home and it is beautiful. Ana Mei calls it a castle. We had a good time relaxing in the hot tub, watching fire works, riding rides at the park, the petting zoo, and just hanging out with family.

MeiLi's birthday!

MeiLi is Ana Mei's friend and crib mate from China. The Chesbros are great friends of ours even though we seem too busy to get together more often. When we do, it's always a good time. Every year, we make sure the girls get to spend time together and birthdays are a must.

This year, SBC (that's southern baptist convention) was in Louisville, KY so I talked the family into going with me. I didn't get to join in much of the fun, but at least I got to hang with the family some and we were together at night in a nice hotel. Ed took the kids to the zoo and to the Louisville Slugger museum.

Josiah finishes 2nd grade - a full year!

What a year this was for Josiah and all of us. This is the year we realized JT had ADD and finally came to grips with it. He had a wonderful 2nd grade teacher who helped us through it all. Through tears, doctor visits, assessments, and counseling, we are at a place where Josiah is doing great. He can focus, his grades are good and boy what a difference this road has made. Josiah had a fantastic year. He made lifelong friends. We will never forget this 2nd grade class. Mrs. Hayslip was awesome. The whole class ran the music city kids marathon in honor of Connor's (one of Josiah's classmates) mom who had breast cancer and passed away. Josiah attended his first funeral and he became a little man that day. Here are some pics that capture the run, butterfly release party, his pride time award, and the end of the school year.
