Scary and Sad

I had a big scare this afternoon.  A lady turned out in front of me and caused a wreck.  Ryland was with me, and he was super scared.  We were both fine, but I felt like it was slow motion to get to him.  The lady in the other car didn't fare as well as we did, and she had to get some medical attention in the ambulance.  
After things calmed down, I was just left with sadness.  Supa Fly was banged up.  Still has paper tags and heading off on a tow truck.

The other vehicle.

We all headed to Louisiana to celebrate Ellison's first birthday.  We all enjoyed playing the carnival games with friends and family.

Silly Photography

I love when I find extra pictures on my phone.  These are a few silly pictures that Reed took one evening.  Thanks for the giggles, buddy.

Jiu-Jitsu Gets Real

The boys loved Jiu-Jitsu this evening.  Sensei had a Fort Worth police officer that he had trained and worked with over the years come to class.  The officer worked with the children about real world situations and how to take down a "bad guy". 
I loved the smiles on the boys' faces and their excitement tonight.  It was great that they had a blast and started connecting what they are learning to real world actions.

Foot Massages

This is too much.  Our children are spoiled rotten, and it is so cute.  Everyone loves a great foot massage.

UA Football

And just like that, football starts.  There are lots of mixed feelings about this sport and the competitive spirit that is all around us in Southlake.  We are hoping this will be a fun opportunity for Ryland to learn about the sport and have a great time.
Ryland's first game was on a dreary day that quickly turned wet and muddy, which he loved.  Any excuse to get dirty is an awesome opportunity for Ry.  The game was a total mush of kids running all over the place and missing catch after catch.  It was much like herding cats.

New Truck

This fun never goes away!  Our crazy, fun Friday night is learning about our new truck.  Same excitement as when we were younger, just a much better new vehicle.

Roughing It

We made a family trip out to the hunting ranch to help John Chris finish up a few projects before hunting season arrives. It is pretty primitive.  I looked out the window to see John Chris taking care of his business in the wilderness.  This has got to be a guy thing.

First Day for the Littles

Reed and Ridley started school this morning.  They were both excited to move to a new class and meet their new teachers.  We are all looking forward to another fantastic year of fun and learning.
