Back to Blogging.... Maybe...

 I really want to get my blog updated soon! I read so many everyday and miss looking back on our life! We are enjoying summer so far! Coop and Madi Bell have finished baseball and softball, Tristan has been to church camp, and we have been to the beach! Maybe I can find some time to load those pics this week! I am working on a home project too...I will be glad when there are no more projects, that may never happen... :(  So for now I have at least found the time to write a small bit on here, hey, it's a start!!! Summer is going by way too fast for sure!! I am trying to enjoy my kids, the baby will be going to school this year.... :(((  Hope everyone is having a good summer so far!

Living Room Before and After~Finally

I have been meaning to do this post forever now and since I am fixing to put my tree up, I decided to go ahead and snap some pics of what the living room looks like now...this is before, dark, dark, and ugly....

And this is now....I know I have a lot of junk, probaby could open up and sell some of it for sure!!! It is so much lighter in here now though! I did not use the same camera, so the angles aren't the same, but you get it!!

The before, blah, blah, blah....

The after....

We removed both book cases on both sides of the fireplace and redid them, got rid of the "wood" shed and replaced it with the glass door, and we have removed the wall from the kitchen into living room...

This is fuzzy for some reason, but you can still tell the difference...


And after...we also painted the fireplace and redid the mantel a little... There are still some things to be done, but they may never get done too, ha!!! The joys of an older home, there is always a project!!!
Here this pic is clearer....

So now it's time to put the tree up!!!

Cooper's 1st Year of Tee Ball

   This was Cooper's first year for tee ball, he has waited patiently for his turn at sports and now it was time!!! And he loved it!!! This year Tristan decided not to play baseball for the first time since he played tee ball... :( But Coop stepped in to fill the void for us!! Here is some pics from his 1st year....
Up to bat...

Hitting the ball...

Made it on to first base!!!

Pat on the head from dad...

This pic got mixed up, but prayer circle before the game....

On deck...

Most of my good pics were of batting because that is what is fun!!! He did have some serious conversations with Easton in the out field though, not sure if I got any pics of that....

My little Coop did great for his first year! I will post more pics of his party later.

Summer of Softball

   For the first couple of week's of summer we were busy with softball & baseball, which I love both!!! Madi Bell decided to play softball this year and she loved it!!! Here are some pics of her playing.
She played short stop and she did awesome for her 1st year at it!!

She was really good at staying focused.

Up to bat, wearing #12 just like her brothers...

On first, she really improved on her hitting.

Miss...but she later hit it!!!

She even tried her hand at catcher, but she wasn't to fond of it!!!
