Blog Vacation?

Apparently I subconsciously decided to take a blogging vacation!

Davis graduated from preschool recently and Colin graduates from Kindergarten on Friday. Then we’re in for the whirlwind month of June. I’m in the midst of planning Miles’s first birthday and Colin’s seventh birthday. Add our 11th wedding anniversary and Father’s Day to the mix and June is shaping up to be a very eventful month!

As you can tell, so much has been going on lately. Work has been incredibly busy and the end of school is always a super-challenging time 😉

Here are some recent photos:

Since we missed the ice-cream truck, the boys decided to have banana popsicles on the porch. Once Miles tasted Colin’s, we couldn’t keep him away!

Miles now has FOUR teeth and is getting HUGE.

Davis relaxing on our porch swing before sunset. We had a lot of fun on that evening. We all sat out on the porch until the first stars came out. We put candles on the table so that the porch light wouldn’t interfere with seeing the stars. Even though it was a school night, it was a great memory!

Here’s Miles looking like such a big boy!

On another evening, we all went down to the waterfront after the boys were already in their PJs. Of course, our reason for going was to look at the cargo ships!

As you can see, life is crazy, busy, and WONDERFUL! I’m so thankful for the many blessings God has given me 🙂

How to make a little boy’s day…

So a couple of days ago, I posted about Colin’s fixation with the Port of Charleston. Two days later, I got a tweet from the CRBJ that the largest cargo ship to ever enter Charleston had come (and gone) that afternoon. We missed it!!!! There were a few photos in the paper but Colin was really, really disappointed that we didn’t see it.

Well, the very next morning, I received an email from Pat Stuckart (the IT guy in my office). I’ve posted several of Pat’s photos on my blog before. Believe it or not, he had gone out and taken photos of the MSC Rita while it was at the Wando Terminal. Colin was SO excited!! Again, it was sweet to see how God does little things for us to show His love 🙂

Here is the MSC Rita in all her glory. If anyone knows when she will next be in port, PLEASE let me know!

Thanks to Pat Stuckart for making my son’s day. If you’d like to see more of Pat’s photography, you can click on his name
