A little Catch Up

Having our LAST Orangeade @ our favorite place: Elliotts Pharmacy :(

Picking out the candy for dessert is the most important part of the ritual!!

Baby Duncan and Aunt Carroll watching their Orangeade being made

There will never be another Ham & Cheese with Lettuce, Tomato & Mayo ANYWHERE

Noah Playing Upward Soccer

A FABULOUS trip to the beach with 32 ladies from church. This was our crazy fashion show.

Our addition on our house! So excited!

We had to say goodbye to an old friend last month. Not a person but a wonderful place that has been around for 99 years! I have the best memories at this place and when I grew up, I wanted to work there. Elliotts Pharmacy went out of business after 99 years. They served the BEST orangeades, sandwhiches and ice cream. I always got the same thing: Orangeade, chips, the BEST pickles ever, and a ham/cheese, with lettuce,tomato & mayo----grilled of course. Laurel loved the same thing. After eating, the kids would make a huge production of finding the perfect piece of candy for dessert. We will miss you Elliotts! You were the best.

Next, on to soccer.... Noah is playing again this year. His skills have really developed but he is REALLY struggling with not having meltdowns when he misses a goal or the other team scores. I mean really. So, we are working on sportsmanship etc..... Last week he didn't cry the whole 2nd half so I'd say we made some progress :) 

Had a wonderful, blessed time at the annual ladies retreat this year.  Learned how to play spoons! 32 ladies attended and the teaching was awesome! Finished up by a humbling experience of having my feet washed by a dear friend. Powerful stuff!

And house stuff: The porch and chimney went up saturday. The tin roof goes on tomorrow and the plumbing rough in. Hopefully we will be in it in 2 months! Exciting and scary!!

BIG yardsale this weekend to help repair a Ukrainian orphanage. Please pray for nice weather!!
