My mom and dad got the boys Chase and Rocky blankets for Christmas. They wear them around the house as often as we let them—in the mornings, especially, these hood-clad little boys make me smile. Sometimes they wake up pretty early and ask to watch a show and eat cereal, so as long as we have enough time to get ready, I let them.
The first week of January, 2017.
A ride through the neighborhood in the snow. They got a Power Wheels from Santa, and this was the first time to drive through our neighborhood. (They did put some miles on it at their grandparents’ houses, though.)
Happy Father’s Day weekend to all daddies. But especially to this one.
Thank you for everything you do for them—for us—and for me. I love and appreciate that you put yourself second.
Thank you for being silly, for playing with them, for listening to every story, every fear, every joy, and every hurt. For answering every million questions. Thank you for every bedtime story and devotional. Thank you for teaching responsibility and modeling grace and patience.
I am so thankful you are the one teaching our boys to become men.
We love you the most!

Last weekend my mom graduated with her MBA. She’s been working tirelessly on earning her graduate degree for the last two years, and so the boys and I went down to Tyler to celebrate with her… we are so proud of her!
We enjoyed the sunny weather (for the most part) and got to swim a bit, too, which was very exciting for Shepherd. I didn’t take a ton of photos outside of graduation, but I thought I’d share a few in honor of my mom on Mother’s Day weekend and her graduation. We love you, Momma!
