On Tuesday we got a letter in the mail that we have been waiting for, for about 3 - 4 months now. It was from Fruitland Bible College, and they have accepted my husband into seminary. He will start classes on October 6 (they go by a quarter system) and he will go twice a week from 6 - 10 on Tuesdays & Thursdays. We appreciate your prayers as we start this new adventure in our lives!

Road Trip!

A couple of weeks ago I had a couple extra days off of work, so Addie and I decided to take our very first road trip. Mom & Dad met me in Asheville on a Thursday afternoon and Addie and I went to visit my sister, brother in law & adorable nephew! We ended up staying with them for two nights and we had a blast!

One of the highlights of the weekend was when my awesome brother in law gave my sister and I a break from our little ones so that we could go to the movies! We enjoyed a bucket of popcorn & The Time Travelers Wife ( if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it).

Enjoy the pictures that I captured from our little girls trip!

Addie is having a blast at the Childrens Museum!

don't these two look like brother & sister?

Spish Splash! Daddy's Birthday Weekend!

Whew! We have been so so busy for the past couple of weeks, it did not even hit me until the other night that I haven't even posted in the past couple of weeks...

On July 31- August 2 our family took a little trip to Pigeon Forge, TN to celebrate Spunky's 32nd birthday! While in Pigeon Forge we indulged in a little shopping, and a lot of swimming. One thing you have to remember when taking a 2 year old on vacation is that you MUST have a pool, a nice clean pool at that. Well, our nice hotel had 2 pools and a mushroom thing that sprouted water over the top. Our little girl just had to be in the water the entire seemed that each night after dinner or whatever we were doing we landed back in the pool until um....I'm embarassed to say but she stayed in the pool until like 11:00 each night (hey, it's vacation people). But after that she slept soundly alll night.

We also went to Dollywood's Splash Country while in Pigeon Forge, forgive me but I didn't get many pictures during our trip to Splash Country in fear of getting our camera wet. Addie had a wonderful time there! She actually went down a couple of slides by herself (while wearing a life vest). They have a lot of kiddie slides there that Addison could enjoy! Several times Spunky would walk Addie up to the slide, place her on it and I would wait at the bottom of the slide and catch her. Every time that she came down a slide she had the biggest smile on her face!! After our trip to Splash Country Addie and Spunky had the most beautiful golden brown tans, while I came home with a nice lobster like glow, complete with peeling!

On Spunky's birthday on Tuesday, Aug 4 we celebrated with a bbq dinner from Butt's On The Creek. All in all I think that he had a great birthday! Enjoy the few pictures that I did capture!

Let's move in the luggage!
