Work Camp


The first week in June, Bill, Justin, and Jemma went to Wichita KS, to participate in work camp.


Bill and Jemma were on the same team


They painted over the graffitti all over the city.


Justin was assigned to another group, but was also painting over graffitti.



Bill got to work with both of our kids.







Spring Break Birthdays


Bill and Justin had birthdays over break.   Justin turned 16.  I just realized I didn’t get a picture of him blowing out the candles.  Ugh!

I got a picture of the cake.  I saw this idea on Pinterest.  It’s just white cake, divided three ways, then add in different food coloring to get the different colors in the layers.  You could make more layers.

I made a Buckeye cake for Bill.  Chocolate, peanut butter, and brownies.

More finished projects on snow days.


Bill got this light hung in the hallway on a recent snow day.  The light has been missing for probably 2 years.  I finally decided on one I liked.  I’d kind of forgot we hadn’t replaced it.


I got another quilt finished.  The woman I teach with pieced this one except for the outer boarders.  I just put the boarders on, quilted it, then put the binding on.

Dr. Phil



I know you have been waiting on pins and needles to see what Bill is for Halloween.  He’s Dr. Phil.

Game Time

IMG_20141018_105349 Saturday, Bill and I got  the opportunity to go to the OU game with some friends from church.  Unfortunately OU lost, but we had a good time.   IMG_20141018_102426 This drummer is Tanner Brown.  His parents are in our bible class.  This is the band marching into the stadium.

Professional soccer game


Bill and the boys went to a professional soccer game while in Brazil.  It was Allen and Tyler’s favorite team.



The game ended in a tie.





Happy Anniversary



Happy 23rd anniversary!  I can’t believe we have been married so long.
